The Future of Optics, Thermal and Night Vision Technology

For decades, EOTech has been producing innovative optics, thermal and night vision systems. Proudly standing behind each one of our American-made and assembled products, EOTech continues to develop technologically advanced imaging solutions for a variety of firearms applications.

EOTech Holographic Weapon Sights

Why a Holographic Sight?

EOTech Holographic Weapon Sights (HWS) are among the fastest target acquisition optics in the world. Situational awareness is provided through the heads-up display that supports engagement with two eyes open. The system optimizes the operator’s peripheral vision capacity, and even with the sight window shattered or partially obstructed by mud, snow or rain, the sight will still function effectively.

What Makes an EOTech HWS Better than a Red Dot Sight?

Fast Target Acquisition - The aiming reticle is one of the greatest advantages of the HWS. Rather than a standard single dot reticle, the HWS incorporates a circle reticle for fast target acquisition with an incredibly small aiming dot for more precise shot placement.

Durable - Ready for anything. In theaters of operation all over the world.

Stealth - Operator is undetectable in virtually any environment, including night vision.

Flexibility - Reticle adjustability adapts to various lighting environments and situations.

EOTech HWS Reticle Advantages

EOTech’s Holographic technology provides a distinct advantage over typical red dots. EOTech can offer any type of reticle pattern, as opposed to being limited to a single dot. EOTech reticle designs are fabricated so that they can incorporate:

  • Multiple trajectory points of aim
  • Range assist features
  • Anti-torque or cant visual indicators

Reticle Patterns

EOTech’s reticle patterns greatly impact accuracy and fast target acquisition. Unlike traditional red dot technology, EOTech’s reticle patterns feature a 68 MOA ring surrounding a 1 MOA center dot allowing the shooter to quickly pick up a target.

The most popular reticle offered, this 68 MOA ring with 1 MOA dot is ideal for fast target acquisition. It provides three usable aiming points. The aiming points above were based on the following load: .223 Cal. 62 gr. 2,900 Vel. Other loads and calibers can also be used, but the operator will have to establish the ranges associated with the aiming points. When using a shotgun, the 68 MOA ring can be used to represent shot patterns but will vary based on choke and shell selection. For ordering this reticle, the model codes will end in -0.
2-reticle.jpg The two-dot reticle pattern can be easily distinguished with or with- out magnification and provides an additional long-range aiming dot. The aiming points above were based on the following load: .223 Cal. 62 gr. 2,900 Vel. For ordering this reticle, the model codes will end in -2.
4-reticle.jpg Use this ballistic reticle with 5.56 Nato/.223 cal with 62 gr M855 FMJ at roughly 2,680 fps with a 14.5" barrel. For ordering this reticle, the model codes will end in -4.
300-reticle.jpg The two-dot reticle pattern can be easily distinguished with or without magnification. It provides two usable aiming points for both subsonic or supersonic rounds. Calculated using a 16” barrel and 110 gr. supersonic and 220 gr. subsonic ammunition. For ordering this reticle, the model codes will end in -300.
308-reticle.jpg The XR308 reticle was designed specifically for the military M240 machine gun. It was calculated with a .308 cal. with 150 gr. M59 FMJ at roughly 2,800 fps with a 24.8" barrel.
fn303-reticle.jpg The FN303 pattern is designed to be used with FN Herstal’s less lethal launcher (.68 cal.).
sage-reticle.jpg The SAGE reticle pattern combines a targeting and ranging reticle in one image. It offers a range- assisted scale. The pattern was specifically developed for use with Sage Control Ordnance single and multiple projectile 37 mm rifled launchers. The multipurpose image is calibrated to the specific trajectory of Sage’s KO line of less- lethal impact munitions.

Brightness

With multiple brightness settings, HWS technology offers quick adjustability to accommodate any shooting situation.
