EOTech 557 AR223 Holographic Sight w/ FREE ScopeCoat Protective Cover & Batteries Product Info

EOTech HOLOgraphic Weapon Sight HWS 557.AR223 has been developed to optimize the functionality of the EOTech HWS. The buttons have been moved from the back to the left side for instant access, allowing a magnifier, night vision, or a back up iron sight to fit closely to the Eotech HWS body. This button position allows the user to operate the EOTech HWS function switches easier than ever before. This allows for NV devices and magnifiers to be mounted right up behind the HWS without interfering with access to the brightness controls. Additionally, a portion of the front base has been raised to allow the sight to fit over standard hand guards found on many M-4 or M-16 style weapons. The L3 EOTech 557.AR223 Holographic Weapon Sight is configured with a new ballistic matching reticle image for the M4 carbine. The battle tested circle/dot reticle will be offered along with a series of 1 MOA aiming dots that are vertically aligned and calibrated specifically for the ballistic drop of .223 caliber ammunition. The reticle provides 4 aiming dots for target distances of 0-300m, 400m, 500m, and 600m. This sight is similar to Eotech 552, but features the control buttons on the left side of the sight. The 557 is available with the M4 Bullet-Drop-Compensating Reticle for use with either of EOtech magnifiers.

This EOTech Holo Sight comes with a FREE ScopeCoat EOTech Protector Cover and Energizer Max Alkaline AA Batteries.

Helpful Negative Review Disappointed by Legacy Reviewer, March 9, 2010
Easy to set up however the pixels are fuzzy. By decreasing the intensity the sight picture clears but is harder to see. Compared to an ACOG I'm quite disappointed. Pros: easy to set up, uses common batteries Cons: blurry sight picture
