The new EOTech EXPS2-0 has the protection of Pelican- esque plastic clamshell. The ones who have their stint with the EOTech products will certainly not be surprised by it. No damage in shipping hence. The traverse-mounted CR123 replaces the AA batteries. A single CR123 works 600 hours at the default brightness. Auto off settings are required for conserving the battery. Another great feature of EOTech EXPS2-0 and some other EOTech EXPS variants is the variable brightness. There are20 settings available and the setting number 12 is the one where the user can find the default brightness. It is a good thing that can even be used in a desert on a day when there are no clouds.
The changes made
The issues that the users have been complaining of on using the previous models have also been considered. The latch and standard battery cap of the 500 series have been replaced with one O-ring seal cap. This O-ring seal cap is tethered to the sight’s body. There is a better sealing that means there would be no lost parts. As mentioned earlier there is an option of running it by making use of a traverse mounted it will take not more than 2 3/4 inches of rail space. So there is more room for you to use as per your desire. You can place the EOTech EXPS2-0anywhere on the rail an yet have a good sight picture. Sight adjustments can be made at 1/2MOA clicks by making use of a pocket change or a used cartridge. One does not require any tools to dismount, mount and adjust the weapon. One will love this feature in case one forgets to take his tool bag along with him.
