EOTech is best known for creating the modern holographic battle sight. But recently they’ve gotten into the magnified optics world with some of the most compact and rugged rifle scopes. But like their military grade optics, their scopes have generally been priced for those blessed with a DoD procurement budget.

At SHOT Show 2024 EOTech debuted their new Vudu X line targeted to the “recreational” rather than the “professional” shooter. These scopes will be more reasonably priced. There will naturally be some compromises with the quality of the glass and ruggedness of the components. But if you’re looking for a scope with EOTech’s name on it and you’re not an “Operator” or a LAPer then the new Vudu X looks promising.
