EOTech is a company headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan, known for designing and manufacturing electro-optic products and systems. And as of the year 2012, they solved wavelength instability problem exhibited by laser diodes through their EOTech Holographic Weapon Sights. Primarily, EOTech is the first company to produce these kinds of sights.

How does a holographic weapon sight work?

A holographic diffraction sight (or commonly called holographic weapon sight) allows the user to view a reticle image from a distance through a glass optical window. The optical window looks like an ordinary piece of a clear glass window with a small dot (the reticle) hardly seen by the naked eyes. A hologram inside the reticle then records and transmits the image into the holographic film. However, holographic sights consume much battery and needs to be charged immediately.

EOTech Holographic Weapon Sights Improvements and Features

EOTech Holographic Weapon Sights were primarily designed for the military aircrafts and were used by law enforcers since 1950s. EOTech Holographic Weapon Sights mostly suites small firearms such as rifle or shotguns because of its standard waiver rail or Picatinny rail. It also has a hologram that can capture and record an image set at about 100 yards. These EOTech holographic sights are also perfect for shooting all kinds of predators for animal hunting because of its small red dot laser. These lasers are made up of holographic patterns which is visible in any kind of light, innate to the center disregarding the shooting angles.

One recent improvement developed by EOTech on its holographic sights is the EOTech HHS II, which has a switch-to-side magnifier that gives an easier usage of distance control by just sliding to the other side and reverse. The brightness of the reticle can also be reduced to a distance the user is comfortable with. By maximizing the tangential vision, a greater control of the engagement zone is achieved by the user, which also identifies threats instantly.

EOTech Holographic Weapon Sights provide reliable performance by ensuring that these products are waterproof, fog proof, and temperature proof. To avoid surprise battery loss, on the other hand, an on-board microprocessor is provided to automatically check the battery life of these Holographic Weapon Sights with a programmable shutdown setting. All EO electronics are then encapsulated by shock absorbers.

EOTech Holographic Weapon Sights are not that expensive or that cheap among all available optics, but it could be one of the best preferences in terms of product usage and user satisfaction. For so many years, EOTech is proven tough in battles, by ensuring continuous quality control. They usually test their products to make sure that these will remain functional despite of different harsh conditions and handling abuse the user will most probably exhibit to prove how reliable and durable EO products are.

As an after-sale activity, EOTech usually contacts their past buyers and let them testify how they like to use the products produced by the company. These are written and available to view by any user in the business site managed by EOTech. Thus, more queries regarding EOTech are answered more or less in the said website to cater the customers and soon to be customers.

AR 15 is a semi-automatic rifle which has many variants. Before you pick your AR 15, it is advisable that you check the specifications of all the variants and judge for yourself which would be the best one for you. Remember, your AR 15 has to be handled with extreme caution and expertise, as it’s quite dangerous a toy. Even if you only shoot clay balls and tin cans, you need to do it with precision every time you shoot, in order to prevent injures to yourself and any other person.
Once you have purchased your AR-15, you might want to glam it up a little. You have various options to accessorize your AR-15, thanks to manufacturers and distributors who supply their products globally. However, no matter how you modify the AR-15, at the end of the day you need to be comfortable with your instrument.

What’s on the list?
The range of AR-15 accessories is an extensive one. AR-15 accessories include different varieties of Upper Receiver Parts, Lower Receiver Parts, Magazines, Optics, Flashlights, Bipods, Lasers and many more. AR-15 accessories are available at your nearest arms and ammunitions store and also on the internet. However, you need to be very cautious while buying AR 15 accessories as your transaction must comply with domestic and international laws, whichever is applicable for that particular transaction. The sale and purchase of arms and ammunition are under the strict surveillance of law, and any derogatory action from your end might lead to severe repercussions.
One thing that you need to keep in mind when you purchase AR 15 accessories, is that the expensive items are not necessarily the best ones. AR 15 accessories are manufactured by many different companies, hence the difference in price.

For example, in terms of magazines, the AR-15 TAPCO 30 ROUND MAGAZINE is priced at $16.99 whereas the Polymer AR-15 30 Round 5.56/.223 Magazine is priced at $26.99.
Similarly, to emphasize on the difference in price, let’s take another example of AR 15 Bipods. The AR-15 Universal Zytel Clamp-On Bipod is priced at $10.99 whereas the NcStar Adjustable Precision Grade Bipod is priced at $34.99.

So, the point is, for beginners, it is recommended that you do not go for the most expensive items if you find a cheaper substitute which meets your requirements without compromising with the quality and efficiency of the product. As long as they are able to justify their functions, all the accessories, irrespective of their prices, are good enough for beginners.

Manufacturers of riflescopes it seems have been bit by the bug of manufacturing larger, heavier and more powerful riflescopes with users also demanding ever more bulkier and powerful riflescopes without pausing for a moment to ponder on whether they actually require such powerful hunting scopes in their normal scope of hunting deer or wild boar.

In this instance, the blame for such a mad rush for more potent hunting scopes should squarely lay on the doorsteps of hunters as they keep asking for more powerful rifle scopes and companies are bound to cater to consumer demand if they are to stay in business. If demand for these powerful hunting scopes gradually taper down, suppliers will also stop manufacturing those.

However, driven by the desire of raking in higher profits, manufacturers are surreptitiously easing out more practical, easier to use riflescopes from their product offerings; I mean those that are more suitable for hunting at short to medium ranges. The manufactures are also in the murky game of slicking advertising high powered rifle scopes even for short range firearms when there is actually no need for such fancy optics in slug guns or muzzleloaders. This is a game that is actually aimed at forcing an average hunter to unnecessarily spend on a gadget that they do not actually need at all.

The reader should not make a mistake that all this ranting against high powered riflescopes means that they are totally useless. These sophisticated optics sure do have their utility in high powered tactical and assault rifles but surely not in rifles that are used to hunt wild boars or deer.

Moreover, these high powered rifle scopes have only about three inches eye relief which is surely not generous for hunting at short to medium ranges and every time the hunter moves his head even slightly the riflescope also alters its aim causing infinite irritation to the hunter. The average weight of these high powered riflescopes is more than a pound and has an average length of a foot and a good three to four inches. For hunters that are interested in shooting wild boars and deer such a huge riflescope is certainly an unwanted gizmo that they can surely do without. The ideal weight of a riflescope for such type of hunters should not be more than twelve ounces and the length should ideally not go beyond ten inches or, at the most a foot. Anything longer or bulkier is simply not necessary and, the eye relief should be at least four inches.

Such riflescopes will not brush the hunter’s eyebrows and would not end up overbalancing the rifle which is as bad as it being underbalanced. The ideal magnification in riflescopes used for hunting wild boar and deer should be in the range of 2X to 4X and buying hunting scopes having magnification in the range of 7X or even higher is a sheer wastage of money even if one leaves aside the discomfort in using such heavy and unwieldy contraptions.

Buying a great set of scope mounts, scope rings and bases for your rifle scopes is an investment you will not regret. Even the best scope and weapon combined can offer a faulty result if the bases and mounts holding them together are not fitting well. Cheap scope mounts and scope rings can ruin a good hunt, by wasting your time or injuring animals aimlessly. Often you won’t realize how badly a cheap, wrongly installed scope mount can affect your performance until it is too late. So make sure you know what you are buying when you go to get your Scope mounts, rings and bases.

Below are a few explanations about various parts needed to install a scope onto a weapon:. Read More…

9mm Short-Barrel Choice: We’d Carry 124-Grain Speer Gold Dots
Among the most-popular concealed-carry handguns is the 9mm compact pistol. From the immensely popular mini Glocks to the Sig P290, there are quite a few pistols of this type in service. That’s not hard to understand why: in the same frame size, the 9mm is more powerful than the 380 ACP, and when compared to a similarly sized wheelgun, most 9mms offer more shots than a 38 Special. But many carriers who like the portability of a small 9mm pistol with a lot of shots worry how the 9mm compact’s terminal ballistics compare to the same rounds shot out of a full-size gun.

Down Range: October 2013
In the August 2013 issue, Ray Ordorica compared two full-size 9mm pistols, a surplus CZ 75 (about $350) and a new Tokarev M70A, made in Serbia by Zastava (about $330). The CZ, designed in 1975 and with more than a million having been built, is one of very few DA/SA pistols that can be carried cocked and locked. The CZ is big and stout enough that even the hottest 9mm ammo with the heaviest bullets would hardly kick enough to disturb the composure of the weakest-handed shooter.

Outfitting Your Rifle: We Try Triggers, Stocks, and Magazines
In the September 2013 issue we tested three of the AR-15 rifle types, and found some limitations among them. For example, we replaced the horrid trigger in the Bushmaster Carbon-15 with one of the excellent Geissele (pronounced GUYS-lee) SSA-E triggers. That trigger was such a revelation we immediately wanted to replace the triggers in the other two with the aftermarket ones on hand, but waited until now to try them.
