Hey YouTubers, here to give a review of the new EOTech HHS-1 weapon sighting system. The HHS-1 is a combination of the EXPS-3 as well as the G-33 magnifier – which you see in the back there. I do have this unit mounted on my M4 colt-carbine SP69-20. You can see I have a lot of the Magpul furniture on there.
One of the nice things about this new weapon sighting system is that it’s got a very low profile on the rail system. As you can see here, I do have my MBUS, or rear-iron sight, still attached to my rail system. The slap-to-side magnifier can be moved here like such and the MBUS still engaged as a backup iron-sight if needed.
To get into some of the specifics about the magnifier itself, this actually is a new and improved version over the G-23 which is an older version that’s still out, can still be bought. Some of the main differences here with the G-33 is that it has a – as I’ve just showed you – a slap-to-side mechanism that allows you to easily move the magnifier back and forth for close and long range operation depending on what your target is.
I believe the G-23 had an actual click-to-side button right here that actually once pressed would engage the magnifier via spring to move to the left or right depending on how you had this set up. I actually enjoy the slap-to-side, it’s very convenient, very rugged. Had it out to range, had no issues with it moving. Very sturdy product.
You’ll also see it does have an elevation and windage adjustment, which moves the magnifier left or right, or up or down depending on how you want it set up. That’s actually very easy too, because you don’t need any tools to do that, you can just use your fingers to move it which is really nice. It also has a Doppler adjustment here on the front, which allows you to bring objects either in or out of focus right from the front of the magnifier, which is nice.
Now the other part of the HHS-1 is the EOTech holographic display. This is a 3.0 display, they make a 3.2 and 3.4 depending on how far you’re shooting. I went with 3.0 only because I only shoot up 300 yards usually. The 3.2 and 3.4 have additional reticiles below the main sight that allow you to shoot and compensate for longer ranges – up to 600 yards. Again, I don’t shoot any farther than 300, so the EXPS-3.0 was fine for me.
There is a 2.0 model out, I believe, which is a little bit older version again I believe it’s still produced, you can still buy it. The 2.0 is not night vision compatible, although I don’t think I’m ever going to have night vision on here, this one is compatible with night vision.
Also what I liked about this model too is that the buttons for the brightness and on/off switch are on the side here and not on the back, which I believe the 2.0 model sports. Overall, very nice set up. Like I said, I had this out to range a week ago … Can’t say enough about it. It’s certainly not cheap, but definitely worth it if you’re investing in a nice sighting system.
If you have any questions, feel free to leave some comments below on the page here. Otherwise I’m not going to get too much into the specifics because you can look up the tech specs online on EOTech’s website if you need to. Look forward to hearing from you and answer any questions you may have.
