    I'm glad to see that you've only been here 2 months and yet know how to repost comments from 2014.

    The guy is asking for help. Don't tell him to sell what he bought to get your preferred flavor. It doesn't help.
    AQ planned for years and sent their A team to carry out the attacks, and on Flight 93 they were thwarted by a pick-up team made up of United Frequent Fliers. Many people look at 9/11 and wonder how we can stop an enemy like that. I look at FL93 and wonder, "How can we lose?". -- FromMyColdDeadHand

    Thanks for the backup, amigo. The other reason I'm asking is, having not seen any kind of "Eotech 4 N00bs" anywhere on M4C or the rest of the Web, I thought spinning up the discussion might help others down the road too.

    Sidenote, if I'd been buying an optic for a "blank sheet" build I would've probably gone with an Aimpoint PRO or one of the various prisms that better accommodate my bad eyes, but I'm specifically trying to replicate how a buddy who was part of the Canadian deployment to Afghanistan set up his rifle over there, which meant E-552.
    You really have to ask why Conservatives have guns? Because Liberals block freeways, burn cities, throw Molotov cocktails, loot, turn over cop cars, and think this behavior is Socially Acceptable.

    Eotech are the one thing I've actually watched people have break repeatedly on the AR platform. I would get BUIS, and run with them up, and practice failure drills. Lithium batteries is a good idea to prevent leaking as mentioned.

    I never had any trouble with the EoTech I was issued, nor can I remember any of my guys having any trouble. It was actually a well liked optic in my circle. We were already changing batteries pretty frequently on our Aimpoints prophylactically, so we didn’t really notice the battery life issue. Instead, I was pleased that it took the same 123 lithiums as our flashlights and LA-5’s.

    I haven’t had any trouble with the AA one I own, either, but I’ll plus one the lithium batteries for lifespan.
