I've got an Eotech on mine, co-witnessed. Works well and so far it has made it through app. 400 rounds.

It's not that bulky. It's the same size or smaller than a scope with rings.

The image area (screen size) of the EOTech vs. the FastFire will be really different.

That's one of the main advantages of a red-dot type optic, too: that you don't need a solid cheek weld.

I was looking into getting one of these fastfire myself, from what I've read, they're just as good as Docter plus they have an on/off switch. LaRue makes a pretty sweet base with back up iron sight for $150

http://stores.homestead.com/Laruetac...astfireani.gif

So far the cheapest I've seen them is $165.95 from swfa.com

http://www.swfa.com/c-1220-burris-fa...lex-sight.aspx

LaRue sells the burris/base combo for $349 but it's cheaper to buy them seperately if you're gonna go that route. Hope this helps

Do you/are you going to stock these? I didn't see them on your site. We'll be expecting a review after you try one out

But only one year warranty...while they will warrant their regular optics forever. I might buy one for five year warranty, cause I don't shoot that much in a year.

We have 3 available as of right now.

I put it on my AR22 for a range trip and it was a nice sight. It looks like it may be hard to see because it is so small but it wasn't and target acquisition was fast and easy. I have not tried it on my pistol yet but that may be next week some time.
