EOTech vs Bushnell
What are the differences between the Bushnell 52-0021 and the EOTech 510 (512-A65)? They both seem very similar. Is the EOTech more rugged? Do these two models share the same components.
Thanks in advance

Yes, the Bushnell and the EOTech share many of the same basic components since the Bushnell is actually made by EOTech. There are differences, however, between the basic Bushnell (EOTech 502) and the 510 series.
The 510 series, http://www.opticsplanet.com/eotech-holo ... t-510.html which includes the 511 (N battery version) and the 512 (AA battery version) is the combat model of the EOTech. It has an extra metal shield arounfd the body for protection. It also has better sealing of the switch mechanism. We've sold hundreds of these to our people in Irag and Afghanistan and it has become the sight of choice for our troops. You simply cannot buy a more rugged holo/red dot/reflex sight than this one.
When mounted on an M16 with the 9-BC-CAM, http://www.opticsplanet.com/eotech-holo ... -ar15.html you can access either the iron sights or the holo sight. When mounted on a sporting weapon, the front sight will not interefere with the functioning of the holo.

in comparison to a friends EOTech, the EOTech reticle appears more crisp/well defined. the bushnell is slightly less coherent. out to 100 yards you won't have a problem hitting a human sized head with either.
