I am getting an Eotech asap. I just got in a new lower and upper is on the way. It is a flat top rock river with a fold down front sight.

what I like about mine is this, I have some good tactical "iron sights" on the M&P 15T and I can look through the Eotech and still see the iron...so I'm not totally out of luck if I were to have a battery failure on the Holo

I have an EOtech mounted on a bushy M4 .. really liked it so much I wanted another one for a Ruger Mini-14. While at the range one day, a fellow had an AR with, what looked like, an EOtech sitting on top. I walked over and asked him how he like it. He said it was not an EOtech but a Bushnell. I looked at it and he offered to let me put a few rounds down range - took him up on the offer. I could not tell any difference between by EOtech and the Bushnell's sight picture. Later that night I did some research on the Bushnell and decided to give one a try; especially in that they were anywhere from $150 - $200 cheaper than the same style EOtech.

Advantages of the EOtech:
1. uses AA batteries
2. can install a lens cover

Advantages of the Bushnell:
1. one button on/off operation

They both seem to zero about the same when dismounted and remounted on same weapon -- both require some minor adjustment.

I am just waiting to see which one "breaks" first!!

The HWS is great for MOUT plus you can add the 3x mag for the mid range targets. Much better than the M68 CCO.

I hear alot are breaking on the from the batteries loosing contact with the leeds, but I doubt we will punish them as much as they do.
