Weapons sights with holographic technology is popular with the shooters, as they give a shooter the privilege to quickly lock in on target, even if the shooters are moving and head position is not aligned with the sight! With a conventional optical scope, a shooter has to maintain his eye aligned with the scope in order to place and keep the reticle over the target. If the shooter's head isn't in position, the scope's reticle isn't pointing to the same spot on the target as the gun.

Eotech 512 a65 uses a  laser beam to focus on a target. The laser is projected along the same axis as the gun. The laser reflects back from the object and gives a perfect view of the target of the shooter. When holographic weapon sight is attached to the gun, the reticle moves with the movement of the muzzle, on the same axis and the targeting is really simple.

Our Remarks

The Eotech 512.A65 has performed exceptionally well in all case. Many of the professional prefer this reticle over a traditional red dot. The A65 reticle is simple, but also adds some versatility to the optic, and by proxy your weapon. One of the drawbacks can be its low battery life. No doubt 1,000 hours is great for a single operation, but for those who are on fire or patrol bases in the middle east that may be too little time.

Although this might not be a factor or issue for everyone but the lack of a night vision mode is clearly a point that really needs to be noted. Considering the downsides, the price is completely reasonable. Overall the Eotech 512 is an excellent optic.
