The Holographic Weapon Sight (HWS) is the 1st electro-optic sighting system to apply holographic sight technology to small and medium sized weapon platforms. When used in Close Quarter Battle (CQB) environments, this revolutionary weapon optic delivers amazing speed and accuracy gains, un-compromising use of peripheral vision, leaves no muzzle side operator signature and is packaged in a compact, durable unit. Now deployed with elite Special Forces and SWAT teams the world over, the HWS delivers vastly improved shooting performance for all levels of operators.
This model comes with a standard reticle - 65 MOA ring with alignment ticks and a 1 MOA aiming dot. The large, open ring is the key to the lightning quick eye recognition and unmatched target acquisition speed. Alternately, the 1 MOA can be used for precision aiming at distances as far as 500 yards where it only covers 5" of the target scene. The reticle demonstrates its versatility for a host of close quarter and long range engagement scenarios. There is no compromise between speed and precision accuracy.
The 551 Eotech Holosight has been designed and tested to provide consistent, reliable performance, even in the most hostile operating environments. This HWS is waterproof (submersible to 33 feet depth), fogproof, shockproof, and withstands extreme temperature variations.
The Holographic Weapon Sight meets military drop test requirements with no functional degradation to the weapon optic and holding zero to within 2 MOA! It can take the banging, beating, and punishing treatment commonly inflicted in battlefield environments and remain fully operational and hold zero.
