Default Who's got the best price on Eotechs

I wanna pickup an FDE Eotech for my SCAR16 and don't really care if its the larger 5xx models or EXPS series. I would probably prefer the EXPS series since I have more room for a magnifier down the road.

Most on the forum for sale are all black, I really want one in FDE to match my rifle.

Stay away from OpticsPlanet. They should be renamed, "BackorderPlanet."

Well, I hope they send you the Eotech instead of one of their backorder emails they're famous for. In my experience (and many others) just because they say they have it, doesn't mean they actually do. Caveat emptor with that company.

Sorry, but when a company has burned not only me, but also others in recent weeks, it's more than fair to call them out on it - as well as warn others.

The exps will be a little better on the scar. You can move it back far enough that your hand won't hit it when racking the charging handle. Exps3 comes in fde also. That's what I have on mine and it works great. Absolute cowitness with stock scar flip up sights. Enjoy your rifle.

Have you seen our OPMOD MPO II?

As of 11:30 central time I have 14 of these in stock: ET-RD-MPOII-OPMOD-EE
This kit will include both the EXPS3-0 and the G23 magnifier (In Tan).

I looked on EBay, Midway, Brownells, Planet Optics, and any other sight i could find, bought mine from Botachtactical.com. They were $45-$75 cheaper than anybody else, even with discounts, and no tax or shipping. EXPS2-2 $467 to my door.

I got my xps2-0 for cheaper than that Fin :<).... I like Opticsplanet but have had an issue with dvor :<(. Not an issue with backorder or anything just an inability to get on the site because of a recent patch by microsoft. I got my XPS from exile machines because the price was unbeatable.

Red-Dot-Scopes has very competitive pricing... and I'm pretty sure they price match (the stuff I've bought from them were cheaper than anywhere else though)... http://www.red-dot-scopes.com/

I've never bought optics from Botach - but I've bought many other items and their prices couldn't be beat (and yes, they were all in stock).

I've bought a bunch of stuff from Optics Planet - and with discount codes prices are okay... but I've given up recently because I've had more than one order (of multiple items) on extended back-order... recently cancelled an order (again) of 5 or 6 items and got 'em all from Botach and Hinterland Outfitters within days.

just came across this in the deals section: http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=550309

I didnt check prices, but Eotech's are 5% off... might be worth looking at?

You missed a really good sale at http://www.rogtac.com/. I got the tan EXPS3-0 for $548 total. This included tax and shipping. I ordered it on Friday, and received it the next day on Saturday. It was only a month ago. BTW, it was also for a tan SCAR 16s.
