Great close range sight.

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, NC Written on May 20, 2013
This is the first Eotech sight I have purchased, and I am not disappointed. It was very easy to mount and get sighted - I barely had to move the adjustments to get zeroed. It works perfectly for a lower third co-witness with my buis and A2 front sight. It seems on the big and heavy side, but in reality most of it mounts low to the rail, making it more compact than most scopes. I have tried it out on targets and on varmints, and I have to say that it is the fastest sight I have shot on a rifle. The circle dot works great for acquisition - no hunting for the reticle and the center dot is small enough not to obscure the target. I wish it would stay on the last brightness setting, instead of defaulting to the mid setting. I like to turn it off, when not shooting, so I have to return it to the setting I desire. I really like this sight for close range out to 100yds. I've made some close range shots with it on an M4 length carbine on moving targets that I would normally reserve for a shotgun. The Eotech definitely increases my capability with a rifle at close ranges.
Pros: easy to mount and sight-in, wide range of brightness settings, super fast target acquisition.
Cons: somewhat large and heavy, resets to mid range brightness setting upon turn off/on....

First Eotech-Will never use anything else

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on March 2, 2012
Put this sight on a RRA Ultimate Operator AR15,out of the box at 50 yrd sight in 1st shot 3 clicks left of dead center. Never realized how important a 1 MOA dot was until shooting with an Eotech on my rifle at 100 yrds, most reflex or holografic sites with a even a 2 MOA block out most if not all of the center of the target at 100 yrds, not Eotech. 1 to 1 1/2 inch groups at a 100 with this sight are no problem. At first I thought the prices for these things were outrages, but after adding up all the money on the JUNK stuff I bought and tried I would have saved myself alot of time, frustration and money by just purchasing the Eotech to start with. Since purchasing this Eotech I have added a 512 and magnifier to my DPMS AR15. These sights make both guns FAR more accurate than ever before. I'm sold I will never again spend my time or money on anything but Eotech optics.
Pros: More than I can list
Cons: NONE...
Would recommend: Yes

Eotech 517

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on February 28, 2012
This sight is really really fast. The side buttons are also a blessing. Trying to work the buttons that used to face the back with a BUIS in the way was a pain. The raised base gives an awesome 1/3 lower co witness. Good kit.
Pros: The reticle
Cons: battery life/weight...

Very Effective

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 1, 2011
EOTech's 517 holographic weapon sight is easy to mount and sight in. Once done, it needs no resetting if removed from the weapon via quick release. The 517 itself has excellent eye relief, however, be aware that when combined with the EOTech's 3x Magnifier, eye relief is very shallow. That being said, shooting with the magnifier almost feels like you're cheating. Amazing accuracy and ease of use. Shooting buddies can't believe the groups I can shoot with this thing.
Pros: Quick Target Acquisition
Cons: Cost/Weight...
Would recommend: Yes
