EOTech Model EXPS3-0 Holographic Weapon Sight - Black
The EOTech EXPS3 Holographic Weapon Sight (HWS) offers unparalleled targeting experience with rapid target acquisition with a unique reticle and generous viewing window. The EXPS3 HWS offers true two eyes open shooting. The EXPS builds on EOTech's HWS legacy with significant improvements in design: the transversely-mounted lithium battery is no longer affected by recoil, the integrated QD mount can be adjusted to provide solid lock-up on rails without causing damage if the rail is slightly out of spec.
The larger viewing window is essential when shooting on the move, from an unconventional position, or if your cheek weld if limited by helmets, masks, or night vision devices. For these reasons the EOTech EXPS HWS are still in common use with special operations units and law enforcement around the world. The EXPS3-0 features a reticle with a 68 MOA ring for speed, with a 1 MOA center dot for precision. Quick range estimation can be conducted using a man sized target (see pictures for details), which will allow you to use hold overs if you know your ballistic dope.
The EXPS3 uses a 7mm raised base that still allows for co-witnessing with iron sights (Lower Third Co-Witness). The easy to adjust side buttions, coupled with the quick-detach lever for easy attachment and removal -- make the EXPS line the most ergonomic and integrative with their magnifiers and other mission-essential gear.

Remember when you had to ditch your old 2-battery EOTech for an Elcan because L3/EOTech lied? Remember stowing a ton of 123s in your SOPMOD stock because your optic would die after 3-4 hours? Remember having to gingerly maneuver your rifle so you wouldn't bump the precious and throw off your zero? All that sounds terrible, but if you experienced any of that, you also remember how "Komm, süsser Tod" from End of Evangelion would play when that donut of death found its target.
That being said: rejoice! The king of red dots has returned!
There is an elegance that comes with function over form, and that sweet, sweet window of destruction. Sure, other optics are lighter, smaller, and have thousands of hours of battery life, but they're also the equivalent of looking through a toilet paper tube. The EXPS3-0 has a big, clear window and makes up for the sins of its predecessors.
I'll admit that in 2020 my eyes aren't what they once were, so the donut is a little hazy, but the dot is sharp nonetheless. Anyone who has used a Sig Romeo 4T knows that optic has a clean dot and ring, but hey: you're paying for an EOTech here, and you're paying for the durability and reputation that comes from and American-made optic. I can't think of any other company that will rebuild your optic... Just saying...
There's a reason why you'll see the new EOTechs on top of battle rifles -- it's because they work. From Nangarhar to Fuyuki City, whatever battlefield you find yourself on, you can depend on an EXPS3-0.
There are many red dots on the market and many have great features, but should you really need to buy special-made knob covers or fancy mounts to improve the functionality of your optic? Should you look through a paper tube? These are important questions to ask. I know that no matter how I spin it, I'll always come back to the donut of death (The thirst trap of WO-kun's Instagram is also a driving factor).
I'm sure that when the next Holy Grail War kicks off, my EXPS3-0 will still be in action.
233537/10 stars. TEAM RIN.
