Does anyone know who has the best deal on EOTech??

I should of gotten one from Botac when they had EOTechs with a streamlight weapon light for free, but didn't due to it bad rep for service.

Thanks.

You likely saved yourself a major headache, as I've had crap service from Botach in the past as have friends & associates.

Remember : "Friends Don't Let Friends Buy From Botach Tactical"

My recommendation is to check the Equipment Exchange over at arfcom and see what you can find. There are usually one or two used EO-Techs for sale at any one time and the vendors have pretty decent prices.

I've bought from bravocompanyusa.com with great results. The place is run by a former Marine, which carries a bit of weight with me when it comes time to spend my $$$ on a piece of kit.

The EOTECH 553 is perfect, takes the same batteries as my Surefire... been waiting for this one for a while.

Lanworldinc.com, Eotech 553 is $545, the lowest price I've seen anywhere.

I can not vouch for them as a seller but the price is pretty good when you get the combo.

Unless your using night vision why not get a Bushnell for $200 less, they're made by Eotech for Bushnell I believe.

How about TenPercentFirearms. Less expensive than everyone else right now.

I'd say go with Wes, you know you will get great service and a good price, or check ar15.com and find a used one.

I guess your milage must vary with Botach because I have had very good service with Botach. I ordered a Eotech 512 for $377.00 with a free streamlight
TLR-1 light included! My order was shipped that morning and I received it the next day.

What is the best EOTech to get price wise and feature wise?

If you don't need the nightvision capability get a 512. AA batteries are easier to find and cheaper. They also last longer than the non-AA models. Make sure it's a Revision F. Earlier non Rev. F models had some minor reliability issues.

I purchased a Bushnell branded one from Natchez (refurb for $220). It's basically the Eotech 510 without the rollbar. Works great if you can live without:

1) roll bar.
2) night vision compatibility (although the 510 is not nightvision compatible either).
2) AA battery usage. AA are cheaper and last longer than the N-cells (but it does make the site physically longer.

If you're looking for the 512, it was selling for $359 Shipped as of two weeks ago. Call them up for the price: http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=23&t=420625

I was going to take the plunge for it.. but I decided on the Burris Fastfire instead. But then they're two different animals..

+1 for getting a 512 from Kiser listed just above. Just pick one up from him, very good and quick service.

I just got a 552 from AR15.net used for $350. Do you have to have a new one?

one good thing to know is that the EOTech warranty is good for two years from the date of manufacture, regardless of who the original purchaser is. Date is marked on the bottom for easy reference. A slightly used EOTech is very nearly as good as a new one...they're made military-tough, and the company stands behind their product.
