SOF Arms only carries EOTech Holographic Weapon Sights (HWS) due to their superior reliability. Use the EOTech Holographic Weapon Sight and instantly understand why it’s the close-quarter combat sight of choice for America’s elite military and law enforcement units — nothing gets you on target faster, with greater precision. EOTech speed-to-target technology and widescreen heads-up display deliver lightning-fast target acquisition and enhanced situational awareness, all wrapped in a rugged, battle-proven design. Selected as USSOCOM’s close-quarter sight since 2001 and used around the world by top-tier fighting units defending safety, security and freedom.
HWS delivers an instantaneous, razor-sharp view of both reticle and target – unlike red dots. With HWS, the holographic reticle is perceived by the shooter to be, allowing the shooter to focus on both the target and the reticle at the same time. No more shifting back-and-forth from near to far, reticle to target.
Field of View
The HWS’s wide rectangular window heightens – not inhibits – peripheral vision. HWS encourages shooters to keep both eyes open, increasing speed-to-target acquisition and enhanced situational awareness thanks to the enlarged field of view.
MOA ACCURACY AT ANY RANGE
Pinpoint precision is the result when the target is magnified but the point of aim is not. The threat is left with no place to hide.
The HWS’s non-reflective sight window and holographic reticle are visible only to you, the shooter. Engineered for day or night combat missions, there are no mirrored or metal-coated surfaces to give away your position.
Never Out Of The Fight
Even when the sight window is partially shattered, obscured by snow or mud, HWS will keep on functioning and delivering pinpoint precision. One of the many reasons they’re trusted by America’s elite in the most extreme, hostile environments in the world.
Own the Night
Many Holographic Weapon System models equipped with night vision-compatible technology to allow operators to use a night vision device in conjunction with their HWS. Its multiple brightness settings are nearly undetectable by enemy night vision surveillance systems and promote the ultimate in clarity in complete darkness.
Reticles For Any Firearms Platform
EOTECH offers many types of reticle pattern as opposed to only a single dot. Some designs are fabricated to incorporate multiple trajectory points of aim and range assist features. This variety in reticle patterns to suit a variety of firearm applications.
Every red dot has parallax (see image at right). Parallax is an apparent change in the point of aim resulting from a change in the position of the shooter. The image to the right shows an example of the parallax effect. In 2017, Green Eye Tactical conducted a parallax study at 25, 50, and 100 yards to determine the parallax of several popular red dot optics. The test revealed EOTech beat all other popular models with minimal parallax shift while other models that claimed to be “parallax free” had the greatest parallax shift.
Average Parallax at 25, 50, and 100 yards.
Average Parallax Total by Model
Notes of Interest:
Aimpoint claims the T-1 is “1X (non-magnifying) parallax free optic” while the overall results showed an average deviation ranging from 10.7 MOA to 11.7 MOA.
EOTech claims “if the user is looking through the sight at the outer edge of the sight window—an off-axis view—the parallax error might be up to 4±3 MOA (or a total of up to 14 MOA across the viewing window)” for a sight properly zeroed; however, no tester reported observing more than 1.2 MOA.
Burris claims that the Fast Fire 3 is “Parallax-free, for better accuracy;” however, users noted an average of 3.5 MOA of movement.
Trijicon claims “the Trijicon MRO is parallax-free when the dot and target are reasonably well centered in the optic’s field-of-view, but when the reticle and target are substantially off-axis, there will be some parallax. The off-axis parallax performance of the MRO meets or exceeds that of other reflex sights of similar size.” The Trijicon MRO performed significantly worse than all others. I guess Trijicon’s own statement that “the MRO meets or exceeds [Parallax shift] of other reflex sights” is accurate.
