OK, so I've been looking for a really good optic for my newest AR build. I've always liked the Eotechs and I do know all about the class action suit and the issue with "thermal drift". I have been looking at the newer productions and I have read they are good to go but I know there are a good amount of Leo and ex military here that I can poke about their thoughts on the Eotechs.

I have looked at others like Aimpoint, Trijicon and even Holosun and Vortex. I have a Vortex or 2 along with a Holosun, they are good scopes but was really looking for a higher end combat optic.

The models I have looked at so far are:
Eotech 512, 552, EXPS2, XPS2, Aimpoint PRO and Trijicom MRO.

Anyway if you guys could chime in on the Eotechs and give me your thoughts it would be greatly appreciated.

Was leaning Eotech 512, unless some other July 4th deals come in overnight.

Well, I received an email from one of my "Russian optics" sites with July 4th specials... that's just weird... but Axion Kobra Gen 3 for $299.

Is it sacrilege to put Russian optics on and AR???

Tough decision.

So i got another email, but this from a friend of a friend. Eotech 552 new (old stock/open box) $350. I may jump on it. Only thing that concerns me its from mid-2016.

Yeah I have a few primary arms, holosun, Bushnell and Russian optics.

Wanted my new build to have a big name I guess. Got the 512. Its only fair I have a top sight on one of my ARs, I have a few AKs with Kobras and one with a PK-01.

Actually got it today but its raining... Range report and sight-in incoming, soonish.

Eotech sights are really nice but too expensive for me. Primary Arms makes sights that are good quality in my opinion and they also have a warranty on them.
