A Quick Review on the EOTech EXPS2-0

L3 Communications EOTech is famous even in the past decades for manufacturing holographic weapon sights and these sights are used mostly by the military aircrafts and even many law enforcers worldwide. They manufacture sights mostly intended to be mounted on small fire arms used even by the civilians these days.

EOTech have already developed a lot of holographic sights since the 1950s and still continue developing sights with different features to cater the needs of the different users of different guns. EOTech’s recently produced product is the EXPS2-0 Holographic Weapon Sight. This features easier usage with a quick and easy to attach and remove the lever for adjusting buttons and locking capacity. This kind of holographic weapon sights offers two eyes open shooting with a mounted 123 lithium battery and it has an iron sight access of 7 mm.

The Features and Advantages
EOTech EXPS2 weights 11.2 oz and has dimensions of 3.5″ by 2.4″ x 2.8″. This recently introduced product by EOTech only needs 2.75 inches of rail space, which is a little shorter than the previously introduced holographic sights. Eye sight is also raised up to 7 mm for unobstructed co-witnessing. The battery cap and latch which could be found on other Holosights are eliminated to attain a better sealing for the battery. Thus, the battery compartment is separated from the base and hovers over the delta ring of the rifle instead. The battery life is expected to be more or less runs on an average of 600 hours when the brightness level is set to 12 and by using a 1x CR123 Lithium battery (which replaces AA battery the usual battery of EOTech’s holosights). This holographic weapon sight has a highly versatile reticle, which allows CQC to work faster and to ensure precise fire outs up to the medium ranges. The controls (used in operation) for this kind of holographic weapon sight is located on the left side of the electronic device and could be seen and controlled by the use of a magnifying glass. Apparently, like any other EOTech holosights, this can also mount easily to any Picatinny rail, weavers, rifles, and shotguns.

The following additional facts are featured best by EOTech EXPS2:

  • 1 MoA aiming dot (reticle is a 56 MoA circle)
  • Single transverse 123 battery
  • Easy to detach and attach levers
  • Parallax free optics with unlimited eye relief
  • Shatterproof glass and aluminum hood assembled in a rugged design.
  • Waterproof (up to 10 ft)

The Disadvantage
However, a downturn regarding the EOTech EXPS2 is the fact that it is not designed and compatible with night visions.

EOTech is undeniably one of the leading holographic sight producers and designers in the whole world since it is the pioneering company for holographic sights. However, issues regarding the EOTech EXPS2 circulate around the web stating the facts and developments mentioned above as a thing taken negatively by the users. However, no one can ever testify the truth unless you have tried to have an EOTech EXPS2. Nonetheless, EOTech’s products are proven reliable and durable for so many years.
