EOtech Zombie

Every once in a while a manufacturer is intuitive enough about their customer base to know that certain products, though not necessarily more functional, capture the essence of what their patrons love. Available now, the new Zombie holoscope from EOTech is just such a product. While the crisp biohazard reticle may not enhance performance over a traditional reticle, it sure does embody the “cool” factor, and we’re sure a lot of customers will appreciate it. Besides the biohazard reticle, the scope bears the same icon in white atop the scope window hood; powered by a single CR123 battery. Additionally, EOTech unveiled a new magnifier for their scopes. Rather than the old pivoting swing mount, the new 3x MSS1 magnifier utilizes a lengthwise hinge on one side of the Picatinny plane, so that the magnifier may be instantly flipped over to the side, out of the way for the fast acquisition at close quarters for which the EOTechs are famous. The base mounts to the rail via a throw-lever mount. For more information, visit eotech-inc.com, or call 734-741-8868.
