    Vortex uh1 Huey

    So I can get a new one for around $360. So Iím thinking of selling my holosun 503c thatís on my FN FAL and putting one of these on it.

    I love the big window for passive NV shooting. And I know lifetime warranty but Iím wondering how durable they are. I love the warranty but Iíd rather not use it

    They are pretty good from what i have seen (dont own one)

    Take a look at the following Youtibe reviews from 2 of the better guys out there. Aaron Cowan of Sage Dynamics does really solid and unbiased reviews. Puts the optics to the test pretty good

    Garand Thumb also provides reviews with good insight

    FYI The UH-1 is not NV compatible without an IR Flood to backlight it. Arguably the biggest blow against it for the time being as we chose to omit that feature to instead get better performance as far as thermal drift goes (i.e. - less) Durability reports would undoubtedly sound biased from us, but it's damn tough. Almost certainly the toughest of all our red dot/holographic-type optics. Check out @barstooloperators on Instragram and they've been beating the hell out of one in Texas. Smashed it with a hammer and dropped it out of a helicopter and it just won't die yet.

    Another option is a used Leupold LCO in the $400-450 range. I believe the lower settings are NV compatible.

    Are there any plans to bring an updated/separate model that is NV compatible?

    Certainly could be a possibility. No word on anything for sure yet, but we're always listening.

    What do you like the best and how does it compare the the Eotech? Aesthetically the Huey looks kind of ugly and boxy compared, but I am certainly interested if performance is good. Love the rechargeable feature as well as their great support.

    Still have not decided from the Vortex or the Eotech. Love some of each, but the Vortex looks like a tractor trailer.
