EOTech Unveils Models 518 & 558 At SHOT Show 2015

EOTech 518 558 SHOT Show 2015

At Shot Show 2015, EOTech announced that it would be changing up its lineup slightly, discontinuing some of its older models while introducing a couple of new optic powerhouses. Among the discontinued lines, EOTech announced they will no longer be manufacturing: the 516, 517, 553BLK, 553TAN, 556 and the Zombie Stopper line. Though many of these products have earned appreciation among their users, EOTech promises its new product lines will more than make up for these losses.

The first new option is the Model 518, a powerful holographic sight that was designed to be easily installed, adjusted, and powered. Able to use AA batteries, powering this light-weight holographic sight should be no challenge for the average shooter. This model features a 1” Weaver or MIL-STD-1913 rail and 20 daylight settings to adjust the brightness. Furthermore, the buttons were placed on the side to ensure you can reduce rail space and easily pair these sights with a magnifier or other accessories.

If you are looking for something even more robust, the new Model 558 is the other new product featured at Shot Show, and demonstrates just why so many shooters turn to EOTech for optics. Like the 518, the 558 accepts AA batteries for operation and features side buttons to allow for easy operation and additional rail space. Beyond just having 20 standards brightness settings, this model also has 10 settings for Gen I-III night visions devises, ensuring you can get the most use either day or night.

Whether you are looking to purchase one of these new models or you want to get your hands on an EOTech classic, Omaha Outdoors makes it easy to find everything you are looking for all in one place. If you got to attend the Shot Show this year, you saw some amazing products that you surely added to your buying list.
