EOTech Sight Hood & Lens Cover

by John Einbinder, from United States, VA Written on September 7, 2014
Awesome! Protects the sight and the covers are out of the way during use.As the covers are attached I don't have to worry about loosing them or trying to find them after my range session.They protect going thru the bush and a simple flick of the thumb opens them up easily....

517 cover not happy

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, IN Written on May 27, 2014
I really expected more for the 517 cover as everyone raves about them.... the fit up is horrible on mine...the plastic covers inside the hood are different color it come it looks like the plastic is already fading away and the lens cover is crooked on the front.... the lock time is a pain but I will never waste my money on one of these again I'm overall very disappointed with gg&g at least for the 517 cover and hood.... it makes my 500 dollar eotech look like a knockoff from China off of eBay I do not recommend this product save your money and buy a scope coat.....
Pros: covers lens
Cons: junky quality ...
Would recommend: No

Fits the bill

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, MN Written on August 10, 2013
Does what its supposed to do and is easy to configure. I've got a 3x with my EOTech EXPS2-0 and no room for the rear cover unless I flip the scope. Shoulda thought of that before buying it. I've got it sitting in a box until I get another EXPS scope... ;-)
Pros: ease of use
Cons: replaces EOTech logos...

Great upgrade

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, CT Written on October 15, 2012
This is a great upgrade for any Eotech and is cheap insurance for an expensive optic. If you have an Eotech get one. Enough said
Pros: Easy to install, looks great, adds protection to your investment
Cons: would like to see better quality on the hinges...
Would recommend: Yes

GGG-1346

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on July 9, 2012
Overall great product. Looks great on sighting system and offers excellent protection for some otherwise very expensive equipment. Those covers stick a little when closing them, however. I'm guessing they need to wear in some so that they operate more smoothly. Very good product overall.
Pros: Sound protection, easy to install, easy to operate
Cons: Back cover sticks a little when closing. May just need to wear in some hopefully....

Nice budget accessory for an expensive sight

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WI Written on December 31, 2011
It does what its supposed to. The metal cover seems to almost exactly the same, if not completely, as the original EOTech 516 cover. Took about 5 minutes to install, give or take, but the most time was spent trying to budge the original screws out of the cover, since they are locked in pretty good with Locktite. But once those pop loose, you insert a small plastic shim (provided) between the hood and the buttons so they don't get messed up, then slide the cover off. Then you put the new cover on, use the shim again, and once its on, remove the shim and put the screws back in.

People have mentioned they're afraid to strip the scews when they put them back in because of all the locktite inside... easiest way is when your tightening the screws, if there is any hesitation, back the screw out and go back and forth a few time, then put the screw in a little further and repeat as needed, just don't over tighten at the end.

The hoods are real nice, they even supply little neoprene pads to put on the cover to stop it from making noise when it pops open, if you want to put it on, I did. Both covers are spring loaded and snap shut, so they shouldn't open by themselves. ...
