Okay here is how this is going to work! You must follow my instructions, any deviation will not get a response! The main reason I am going to be strick with this is it will make keeping track of which sight everyone wants, and I wont have to type the price sheet over and over!

DATE OF GROUP BUY 2-6-06 thru 2-13-06

Instructions:
1. You must EMAIL me for pricing.
2. Subject area must read Eotech Group Buy 06
3. Once you get price sheet and decide that you want a optic you will need to email me back with the Quantity, Optic you want, your Member ID, your real name and Address.


We will need to get a minimum of 12 optics orderd inorder for this to be become a Reality. Once I have the minimum orderd I will Give everyone directions on how to make payment. Once I receive ALL payments I'll place the order and give a update here on when to expect delivery.

I have done this for 3-4 years in a row so if you have a problem with how I'm running or have a trust issue than you might want to take your business elsewhere. To those that participate I thank you and you wont be disappointed in your Eotech! Also if you want a GG&G Accucam I can get those from my Dist. They dont have any right now! But if you want one I'll add it for 80.00 if shipped with Eotech.

Okay folks if you are interested in the Group Buy.....You need to inform me of the Models that you want. I have emailed a lot of the price sheets out, but only have about 3 people that have confirmed.....Remember we need to have 12:)


I do believe that the pricing is fair.

I have been trying to find a store in my area so I can check one out before I order. I have never used a red dot sight on a rifle and I'm nearsighted and wear glasses for distance vision. Being 55 I can no longer focus close up while wearing glasses and was wondering if I would be able to use a red dot sight.

A friend of mine has an old Tasco red dot sight on a pistol that I checked out the other day. When I hold the Tasco sight near my eye like I would with a rifle the dot appears sharp while focusing on a distant object, but I get a secondary faint red dot about 6 dot sizes above the bright one. My friend does not see the faint red dot. I wonder if I will get a second dim image with an Eotech.

safety agent man:
Perhaps you can get a longer rail for your weapon and mount the EoTech further down the rail, so you can focus better.

bigant. Is there any discount for less than 12 people or is 12 the minimum you can order direct from the manufacturer?

Not to be a complainer, but I think the price just wasn't enough lower than you can get every day to justify the wait and uncertainty of a "Group Buy".

Just my opinion. I hope everyone is happy.

Well, Thats your opinion! I have priced these according to the 06 pricing! I can not account for other dealers that still have their 05 pricing up! Plus you must be new HERE, since their is NO UNCERTAINTY when dealing with me in a group buy, and I think my record shows that!


Need a couple more buyer's and this is a GO!

Ant, I'm in for 2 at least, just gotta decide which ones I want as I just got back in from Vegas & SHOT last night & I'm a little worn out after the 13 hour drive.....:uhoh:

As for those who don't want the "the wait and uncertainty of a "Group Buy", don't buy bud. I certainly appreciate Ant stepping up to the plate, as he does every year, & giving us the chance to buy good optics at a great price.:bigangel: There is no uncertainty on this deal & I like getting something at a better price than I can get from other companies. YMMV & that's the way it goes. I think your post was a tad rude, ya could've emailed Ant in private with your opinion without attempting to piss on his bonfire in his own thread but again, I guess you didn't think about that??:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Whatever, lemme say this again for the record; Ant is a stand up, all around good guy with a solid rep here, I've personally dealt with him on the last EoTech GB last year & it's been killing me waiting for this one.:wink: If any newbies here have reservations or questions, email Ant & ASK. If ya wanna ask me, do so, I'm an honest guy with no axe to grind, I've never met Ant, nor am I associated with him in any way other than as a VERY satisfied customer.

If you've read any of my posts as regards reviews of deals I've done, if I get great service, products & prices, I'll defend that person/company/vendor in public & in private against anyone with an opinion based on PERCEPTION, rather than EXPERIENCE.:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

You're welcome to spend the extra $$ for the sights with anyone else you please but as for me? Ant gets MY business. Y'all be cool & play nice now.:angel:

No offense intended !
The "uncertainty" I was refering to is NOT any uncertainty about your business ethics...it is the uncertainty of when the order would actually be placed, when deliveries would occur, etc...all real uncertainties at this point.

And I was not trying to rain on your parade, only providing *feedback* as to why it seemed like people weren't responding as rapidly as you might have hoped.

I really do hope you are all happy with the buy.

ok, cant decide what to do, dont have NV but does the smaller size/weight make the more expesive battery worth it, and what is the big difference between the 510 and the 550 series?
Thanks for any info

Hey g-man, you're a good man for sticking up for a friend, but I prefer to spend my dollars with an Fal Files sponsor or advertiser first. Yeah I know, it costs a little more, but it helps support the site so it all works out in the end. :cool:
