I'm shopping for an eotech but I don't really know anything about the different models.  It will be going on my new flat top AR for home defense and less than 100 yard target shooting. 
 
Help please!!!

The EOTech 512 is a good value. It uses AA batteries, which I like because they are inexpensive, and easy to find.

Thanks!  What's the difference in the 512 and say the 516 and or the EXPS2?  What are you getting for the extra money?

The fact is none of them are going to have the battery life of an Aimpoint. You can leave the Aimpoint on all year, and still have a good battery...

I'd say for a "home defense weapon", that feature could be nice to have.  Wink

I wouldnt want to make you wait too longDevil.   These dont need battery power and the tritium last about ten years the fiber optic takes care of it in daylight.   I also like an aimpoint for many applications. Trijicon makes several fine choices but they tend to get spendy this one can be had in several configurations. I have a friend who has one of these and likes it I have compact ACOG and like that, but it more expensive.  With a optic that runs battery power AA is nice because some of the small batteries are not readily available.
