EOTech Trade Up Options

I have an older EOTech Red Dot (511D1) that has conked out on me.

I wrote an email to EOTech customer service, and given the age of the optic they offered me 50% off an online purchase from them. This can more than make up for my original investment (~ $310 with tax).

So my question is: What model and options should I replace this with. I don't have rifle I want to put it on now, but my near term purchase considerations are:


1. IWI X-95 in .300 BLK

2. IWI Tavor 7 (if / when it becomes available)

3. IWI TS12 (if / when it becomes available)


Notice a pattern here ?

If not getting another EOTech, then take a look at the Vortex optics. I would go with a magnified optic in a 1 by ?? set up. I am currently running a 1X6X24 Vortex on my AR and love the heck out of it. 600 yards or down and dirty close in no problem. Just run the magnification up or down as needed.

I got a Tavor X-95 in 9mm a few months ago and love the heck out of it. I put a Lucid HD-7 red dot on it and really like that optic. Right now I am doing two things with it: 1- using it for PCC matches. 32 rounds in a half dollar sized hole at 25 yards standing and resting my elbows on the shooting station cross piece. 2- saving my allowance to buy the X-95 conversion kit so I can swap it out and make my Tavor a 5.56 rifle.
