A unique design in the ever-widening market of piston driven AR15 uppers, PWS has designed a simple, yet very robust series of uppers. Starting with the aptly named 7-inch “Diablo,” 10-inch “DC-10” and 16-inch “DC-16,” available in both 5.56mm and 7.62mm. PWS manufactured uppers are the perfect blend of AK reliability with AR ergonomics. This distinctive design results in a very smooth recoil impulse coupled with unyielding reliability. The carrier, operating rod and gas piston are effectively one component, which leaves no need for additional springs, small pins, or adjustments of any kind.

The XPS2-0 is the latest addition to the EOTech HWS family. The XPS2-0, or Cross(X) Power Source, maintains many of the same speed and accuracy benefits, but now in a smaller, more lightweight package. EOTech has redesigned the HWS body to accept a single, transversely positioned, CR123 Lithium battery. The new XPS2-0 requires much less rail space and provides roughly three times the battery life (about 600 hours). In addition, it offers three incredibly fast reticle options that include a new 2-dot pattern. Offered in both night vision and non-NV, the XPS2-0 is the shortest and lightest HWS developed to date, and ideal for any shooting situation and weapon platform.
