EOTech Gets Their Vudu Precision Riflescopes to Market

EOTech announced at SHOT Show 2016 their introduction of a new line of riflescopes. The TFB team was able to check out the Vudu riflescopes in person last winter. Although the general public knew about these scopes all year they have not been available until recently. EOTech updated their website to show off the new riflescopes. If you missed this announcement from the previous SHOT Show, here is a basic rundown of the 3 models available for consumers.


Vudu

Vudu 1-6x24mm FFP  – MSRP $1,399.99

Vudu 1-6x24mm FFP

This is a first focal plane scope meaning as you increase the magnification your reticle stays the same size. Its compact size and reticle options make it perfect for 3-Gun competitors and hunters. It has a 30mm tube (keep in mind when buying rings) and has a lit reticle using a common CR2032 battery. The lit reticle feature has a constant run time of 500 hours and will shut off after 2 hours of inactivity. Between your 3 reticle choices you have 2 styles of windage/elevation turrets. The 7.62mm and 5.56mm BDC reticles offer 0.5 MOA adjustment. The 3rd reticle choice, an “SR-1” reticle, has 0.2 Mil adjustments.


Vudu 2.5-10

Vudu 2.5-10x44mm FFP – MSRP $1,599.99

Vudu 2.5-10x44mm FFP

This model is a first focal plane scope as well. It similarly has a lit reticle, CR2032 battery configuration, 30mm tube, and black anodized finish. The mid-range magnification of this scope makes it suitable for a wider range of uses. While the EOTech website does not give pictures of the reticle offerings at this time (“Available Soon” is listed) they do have them named. If you choose an MD1 or H59 model, your turrets will have 0.1 Mil adjustments. The 3rd option of an MD2 gives you 1/4 MOA adjustments. This scope, including the other two, has an EOTech Advantage Warranty behind it as well. This translates to a limited lifetime warranty covering materials and workmanship for the original owner or the 10th owner.


Vudu

Vudu 3.5-18x50mm FFP – MSRP $1,799.99

Vudu 3.5-18x50mm FFP

The 3rd installment in the Vudu line of precision riflescopes is a big boy! This scope weighs in at 33.6 ounces, sports a 50mm objective, and a less common 34mm tube when mounting it. The first focal plane ability is more valuable than ever since you have the ability to crank it up to 18x magnification. Nobody likes staring at a deer, steel target, or prairie dog and your reticle covers 50% of what you are looking at. The combination of a 50mm objective and 34mm tube should provide for a lot more light gathering ability as well.  Similar to the Vudu 2.5-10x44mm FFP, you can choose an MD1 or H59 reticle with 0.1 Mil adjustments or an MD2 with 1/4 MOA adjustments.


The MSRP of these scopes puts them into a more narrow market, but the quality on paper looks to be there. When TFB shot them at SHOT Show they were very clear and crisp according to Thomas Gomez as well.

    “This is a first focal plane scope meaning as you increase the magnification your reticle stays the same size.”

    Misleading, at best. That COULD be technically correct but it’s very incorrect for how you would explain it to most people. If the reticle stays the “same size” it’s second focal plane.

    What they mean is “stays the same size – relative to the magnification selected”. This is bad copy.

      This statement: “The first focal plane ability is more valuable than ever since you have the ability to crank it up to 18x magnification. Nobody likes staring at a deer, steel target, or prairie dog and your reticle covers 50% of what you are looking at.” Suggests the author misunderstands the nature of a FFP scope.
      In a FFP scope the design/thickness of the reticle has to be a compromise between being too small at low magnification and too thick at high magnification. With older European scopes the reticles were often too thick, but most modern makers get it about as right as it can be got. Do Eotech?

        Brian in a comment below basically verified your worry.

    • Adam Scepaniak

      To get technical, you are absolutely correct. I did oversimplify the basis of a FFP riflescope so most people checking out these EOTech scopes for the 1st time (or a FFP scope in general) would have a general understanding of what occurs. Going into more detail being as there are many different variants in terms of scopes and not all of the TFB readers are new, could have helped. Can’t argue that.

  • Drew Coleman

    First focal plane means that the reticle substensions cover the same area throughout the magnification range, but the reticle does in fact change size from the point of view of the user.

  • brian

    I received a 1-6 and am disappointed in the reticle. The horseshoe reticle, used in larger magnification, become a dot in lower magnification. At 1X it is almost too small to see leaving you with just the larger, outer ring. Not good

    These guys still exist?

    EOTech is completely scrubbed from L3’s corporate website. Yet here they are releasing new products?

    • Frank Grimes

      EOTech, and exclusive AirSplat brand!

    • yvette99

      They’re still there, but L-3 is calling them “Warrior Systems” and pointing to an Insight Technology website. The L-3 third quarter report says it’s taking a $14 million charge for the class action suit against EOTech.

    There’s Leupold, and then there is everything else… like this.

    Isn’t Vudu some third rate movie streaming service owned by Walmart?
