The legendary Mr. SMGLee has the scoop:


EOTech with Laser Device laser build into one unit. IR and visible laser share the same battery as the EOTech 552 in order to minimize the package and also to cut down on weight.

The visible Laser is a 5mW unit with range for visible in low out to 450m in low light and about 30m in day light

The IR laser is a -25mW to -100mW unit with reach out to 2000m in high out put and 600m in low setting.

Added a recoil lug to the cross bar screw for better security on the rail.

Control are in the rear with individual windage and elev adjustments. power source are contolled via the remote switch leading from the bottom of the unit ot the side button build into the unit. a double click on either the remote switch or the side button will set the beam on continous mode.

The integrated unit was designed at the request of SOCOM, thus one of the EOLAD has the SOCOM designation. EOLAD-2 SOCOM, this is the highest priced unit within the line up.

The integrated unit has some good features, it takes only one battery source, it feeds off the two lithium AA in the 552. it is also more compact than say mounting a PEQ15 or the even bigger PEQ2. especially on a gun like the MK18 or the MP5s an d any gun with short rail real estate. it might be more effective by demo the sight on top of a gun like the HK MP7…

the control knobs are prety difficult to adjust, you would need a coin and the turns has very positive click, it would not be too easy bump out of adjustment.

    I have a Rock River Arms (RRA) LAR-15 Elite Operator with a detachable tacticle carry handle. Without the carry handle, the weapon has a picatinny rail flat top. I am interested in purchasing an EOTECH Site, specifically the 522. Do I need to buy the RRA Dominator 2 EOTECH Mount to accomodate the EOTECH site? According to RRA, the mount places the red dot just above the front site post. Also with the EOTECH do I need the rear and front sites? My front site folds down.

    I am not a novice when it comes to weapons. I have been in LE for 14 years but i have only been familiarized with the M4. This is my personal M4 and I want to make sure I am doing things correctly.

    Thank you for all you can provide.
