New toy coming my way

Finally some sights for my Ar!




XPS2-0

* Images
* Specs

*
*

Operation

* Optics: Transmission holography - parallax free
* Magnification: 1x
* Eye Relief: Unlimited
* Length/Width/Height: 3.5"x2.4"x2.4" (95.25X60.96x60.96)
* Weight: 8oz (227 grams)
* Temperature: -40 to 150 F
* Waterproof: Submersible to 10 ft depth
* Sealing: Fogproof internal optics
* Color/Finish: Non reflective black with hard coat finish
* Adjustment (per click): 0.5 MOA (1/2" at 100 yds)
* Adjustment Range: +/- 40 MOA travel
* Mount: 1" Weaver or Picatinny (MIL-STD-1913) rail
* Return to Zero: Repeatable to 2 MOA after re-mounting
* Night Vision Comatibility: none

Heads-Up-Display Window

* Optical Surfaces: Anti-glare coating
* Window Dimensions: 1.20" x 0.85" (30 x 23mm)
* Front Window Material: 1/8" solid glass
* Rear Window Material: Shatter resistant laminate (3/16" thick)
* Field of View (100 yds): 30 yds (28m) at a 4" eye relief
* Reticle Options: 65 MOA with quadrant ticks and single 1 MOA dot

Electrical

* Brightness Adjustment Range: 146,000:1 brightest to lowest
* Power Source: (1) 123 lithium battery
* Battery Life: 600 continuous hours at nominal setting 12
* Brightness Settings: 30 settings with scrolling feature (10 settings for NV use)
* Auto Battery Check Indicator: Flashing reticle upon start-up
* Auto Shut-down: At 8 hrs- programmable to 4 hrs

Shortest model sight yet! This sight is smaller than the former N-cell battery sight (511/551) and runs on a single 123 battery. It also has a longer battery life than the N-cell style sights. With the new single battery configuration, the XPS allows more rail space than ever, leaving more room for rear iron sights or magnification. Smaller, lighter and always fast; the XPS series is a great new additon.

* Single transverse 123 battery to reduce sight length
* Shortened base only requires at most 2 3/4 inch of rail space compared to the 4 inch N battery sights
* Battery cap and latch are eliminated and replaced with a simple O-ring, tethered cap; better sealing is achieved
* Battery compartment is now separated from the base to allow it to hover over the delta ring of the rifle
* Average battery life at brightness level 12 is roughly 600 hours, 3X battery life of N cell sights
* Reticle: 65MOA circle with 1 MOA aiming dot
* The XPS2 is not Night Vision compatible, for Night Vision compatibility see the XPS3 sights.

Suggested Retail: $519.00

I run an XPS2-2 on my AUG, great optic, battery life sucks compared to the Aimpoints but at $375, you can't go wrong.

What kind of mount are you running?

Did you decide on BUIS?

Honestly I haven't looked into mounts yet. I have my YHM Rail, but I want a riser for it. Any suggestions would be great.

Still planning no BUIS for this. This is just a target gun and I'll always have backup batteries. So for now i'm going to skip on them.

If you can, check out other people's rifles to find a height that works well for you and allows you to maintain a good cheek weld. I run a GG&G Accucam on my 552 as it adds no height but maintains zero and the QD is fast.

Things to consider, a riser with an EOTech with BUIS may interfere with a cowitness and will make rezero to/from the BUIS an impossibility.


As for the BUIS:
I hear you about it being a target rifle and the 1 MOA center on the XPS2-0 will lend itself well to <100 yard shots, but a 6 O'clock zero with iron sights will be WAY easier to hit 75-200 as opposed to the EOTech. There's something to be said for not covering what you're trying to shoot when it's VERY small.

EDIT: 1 inch will be WAYYYYY too high for a cheek weld. No cheek weld means you'll be slow.

You want your face to look like this:


Get as much of your face meat on that stock as possible and get comfortable with it. You want this to be repeatable quickly: When you get on your bike, with your eyes closed, you can lean forward and grab the clip-ons without missing or hitting the brake/clutch, this is due to muscle memory, you want this with your rifle too. The more secure your cheek weld, the faster your follow-up shots will be. If your face slammed down on that stock is still higher than your optic (due to your lovely high cheekbones :-* ) then look into a riser; FWIW, I run all EOTechs without a riser so you may be fine.

Good:

Good tip! didn't really expect that. I'll play with the eotech see how it goes, but if I see this, maybe some magpul fip up iron sites?

I've run the MBUS sights before, they work fine and are inexpensive too. F/R for <$100. They're not the quality of KAC but they'll get the job done and are no less accurate.

So let me get this straight, you have no plans to have iron sights on this gun cause it's gonna be a Poser-15.

call me crazy but have you thought about just putting it on teh fucking receiver

it's easy, like this.

Would you like a tutorial on how?

Sight was wrapped up for me under the tree today. I mounted it and really like it. I'm glad I went with the shorter base xps-2. Can't wait to get out shooting with it. Too bad the range isn't open today.
