I just got my long awaited (apparently Bushnell has taken its sweet time to ship this out to the retailers) Holosight XLP and I am quite impressed.  It is, I think, a fair bit lower that other Eotechs/Holosights, but a bit longer (2" longer than a N-battery one and 1" longer than the AA-battery one).  The screen is a bit smaller, but still big enough to easily get the sight picture.  There are 15 intensity levels vs 20 on regular models, but I think that's plenty for any kind of lighting I can think of.  The button location is a bit different, but the buttons themselves are easy to use without looking at them.  I'll take it to the range in a few days and see how it does. 

 

In the past I found that I prefer the circle/dot reticle over the simple dot, so I am looking forward to having some fun with this gun.  I have a bunch of rechargeable AAA batteries lying around, so it will be interesting to see how long it will last.

Thanks for the SITREP.

 

How long does Bushnell say the batteries are supposed to last??

What is a SITREP?

100 hours, but I am not sure on which setting.

Military acronym for "situation report".

koshkin,  Did you buy the XLP with the integral Remington shotgun mount, or the one made for Weaver rails?
