GUN What's my EOTech 512 worth?

Discussion in 'On Topic' started by Market Garden, Mar 24, 2009.

  1. I'm thinking of selling my 512 to defray the cost of an Aimpoint ML3 setup. I see that new 512s are going for ~$400 online. Mine is in perfect condition, and I have the original packaging and everything for it. Do you think I could get $300 for it? Also, it's a rev F model and doesn't have the battery life issue.

    Looks like they are selling pretty quick for a little over $300. I'd sell it between $325-$350 and lower it if you don't get any bites.

    Might have a friend interested (he was talking about throwing one on a carbine). Shoot me a price when/if you decide something and I'll pass it on.

  8. Laurel was rather unhappy when I mentioned that I was considering spending the money on the ML3 and the Larue mount. I have a rifle class this weekend. I'll run the EOTech and then decide whether I want to keep it or get the Aimpoint I guess.

    Nothing, send it to me for disposal.
     
  11. The EOTech is a good sight, I'm just not in love with it. I really don't know why I want an aimpoint, I've used them before and they're fine, the only real advantage I see is the longer battery life. I guess I just want to try one on my rifle.

    Can use Aimpoint magnifier + puts the irons in the bottom
     
  14. EOTech lets you use a magnifier and irons too.

    EoTech 3x Magnifier ftl.
     
  16. Does it suck? I've never used one. Anyways, for most practical applications you don't really need magnification.

    You have to have the mount in order to put the sight on your gun? :hsughno:
     
  18. EOTechs have built in mounts. That mount is the Larue QD mount (the EOTech mounts to that mount, then that mount attaches to the gun.) I don't know why it has a raised rail section in the back.

    :mamoru: You want a new toy. :)

    I remember when you bought the eotech you told me how much more you like the eotech compared to the aimpoint.

  22. 12 hours?

    The EOTech is rated at 1100 continuous with lithium and 600 with alkaline.
     
  23. One thing I like more about the EOTech is the field of view is more like looking through a window that a tube.
