Production of EOTech’s NEW Laser Battery Cap for the 512/552 Holographic Weapon Sights scheduled for Spring of 2014

EOTech’s Holographic Weapon Sight technology will now be available commercially with lasers.  EOTech has designed a new drop-in replacement Laser Battery Cap (LBC) that can be used on all 512/552 Holographic Weapon Sights. 

The EOTech LBC combines the lightning fast target acquisition of the Holographic Weapon Sight with the versatility of integrated aiming lasers to create an optic capable of excelling in any environment.   These battery caps offer a low power red visible and IR laser making them ideal for home defense, CQB and force-on-force training.

The LBC’s operate through the use of an easy on/off toggle switch and come with an accessory port for a remote pressure switch that is sold separately.  They run on easy to find Lithium AA batteries for between 36 and 60 hours depending on laser type and usage.  They are also waterproof to 10ft for up to one hour.

John Bailey Director of Product Development stated, “The 512 and 552 Holographic Weapon Sights have been some of our most successful products.  This new Laser Battery Cap (LBC) doubles the aiming capability of the HWS without incurring the added cost of an entirely new sighting system.”

The new EOTech LBC’s are available in 4 configurations:
•    LBC: laser battery cap accessory, Visible Red Laser, compatible with all 512/552 models.  MSRP: $285.00
•    LBC2: laser battery cap accessory, Visible & IR Laser, compatible with all 512/552 models.  MSRP: $429.00
