The reason is most of today’s optics with co-witness functionality work with these guns. In fact, you’ll be able to use nearly all co-witnessing optics on the market including HWS units from EOTech.

What’s better absolute co witness or 1 3?

If you have flip-up iron sights – go with absolute cowitness. If you have fixed iron sights – we recommend lower 1/3 cowitness. This will give you an uncluttered view of the red dot, but you can still drop your line of sight to use the iron sights if needed.

Is the EXPS3 lower 1 3?

The EXPS3 sits at a lower 1/3 co-witness height. Back up ironsights can be seen inside the window, but in the lower 1/3 of the optic. Buttons on the left side allow you to toggle through the 20 daylight brightness settings, and the NV button switches to a dim mode for use with night vision.

Are EOTech parallax free?

EOTech Holographic Sight There are twenty brightness settings available as well as a battery life indicator. The EOTech Holographic Sight also offers unlimited eye relief. Performance – This is a great parallax-free red dot sight for AR-15 type rifles.

Do you have to zero a holographic sight?

Like any sight, you must first zero the sight to match the bullet’s point of impact out of the barrel. Once zeroed, the sight is capable of providing accurate sighting to at least 300 yards.

What does 1/3 Co-witness look like?

The red dot or reticle of whatever kind is going to sit on the tip of the front sight and generally be aligned with your iron sights.

Does an EOTech need a riser?

You need a bit more than a 1/4″ riser if you want 1/3 co-witness on the EOTech. I have an XPS 2-0 on my m&p 15x but I have an iron front post so it’s much more neccassary to get the front sight out of my sight picture. Since they are flip up sights you do not a riser but to co witness you will.

How are red dots parallax free?

Parallax just means that as you move your head, the target and the reticle don’t move relative to each other; the target must be at the same distance as the virtual image to make this happen. Since ideally a red dot projects to infinity, it is only parallax free with respect to targets set at an infinite distance.

Does Aimpoint have parallax?

Aimpoint sights are parallax-free, which means that the visible dot remains parallel to the bore of your weapon no matter what angle your eye is in relation to the sight. This means you never have to worry about centering the dot inside the sight.

Where do you put the EOTech cowitness dot?

EOTech’s cowitness is a double-verification process that combines a firearm’s irons with the holographic sight. The dot should be placed on the tip of an iron sight’s front sight. In theory, once the sight has zeroed-in then the red dot should hit the target. In the past, this tech was used due to low-quality batteries for rifle sights.

Is the EOTech 518 cowitness a holographic sight?

It might seem ironic that the EOtech 518 Cowitness reverts to combining the company/s holographic weapon sight (HWS) tech with old-school iron sights. In the case of holographic sights, the red dot is used to hit the target projected as a hologram in the sight’s window.

When to use lower 1 / 3 co witness sights?

The benefit of a lower 1/3 co-witness is that you don’t have to use flip-up sights. If your particular platform uses fixed sights like an AK or Scorpion, then you’ll be kind of forced to use fixed sights. The AKP has fixed sites, so Johnny is using a lower 1/3 co-witness here.

Which is the best mount for an EOTech?

Converts low-profile EOTechs to lower 1/3 cowitness, and provides a better cheekweld too. The LT110 is another mount designed “by request”. The LT110 raises the EOTech by .275″.
