The EOTech Model 512 is EOTech's most popular holographic weapon sight (HWS), as it is a non-night vision model that uses AA batteries -- it is economical as well as convenient to keep charged.
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 512-0 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.
