While ever so slightly OT, I've never been an EOTech guy, but just took delivery of an XPS3 (largely out of curiousity), and my initial impressions are pretty favorable.
I didn't have any immediate need of magnification of NVD-compatibility, so I opted for the standard button arrangement, and not the EXPS; I did, however, go with the 3-0 reticle, as opposed to the 3-2. Understand the latter is an advancement of sorts if you're looking to ring out to 500m, but at that distance, I wouldn't want to be limited to 1x in the first place.
I'm also curious if the second dot isn't more of a distraction than an aid, but whatever the case, this may be one EOTech that proves immune to the many troubles that have plagued the 500 series in the past. Here's hoping, anyway.
Stand your ground; don't fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here. -- Captain John Parker, Lexington, 1775.
