EOTech Model 512 Laser Battery Cap

posted on April 25, 2014

EOTech isn't quite reinventing its popular Model 512, but the company is taking steps to transform it. The new 512.LBC (Laser Battery Cap) features the addition of an integrated aiming laser that's meant to improve the operator's target acquisition times and aiming capabilities.

The new design's simplicity should make it ideal for home defense or training situations. An integrated accessory port that allows for the use of a remote pressure switch is being sold separately.

Model 512.LBC Features:

• Weight: 12.6 ozs.

• Mount: 1" Weaver or MIL-STD-1913 rail

• 50 continuous hours at nominal setting 12 with laser on (alkaline)

• 60 Continuous hours of battery life at nominal setting 12 with laser on (lithium)

• MSRP: $729
