EOTech 518 558

EOTech recently sent out a letter to their distributors announcing two new Holographic Weapon Sights, the 518 and 558.

With this change, EOTech is halting production of the 556, 553BLK, 553TAN, 516, and 517 sights. Additionally, the Zombie Stopper line is also being discontinued for 2015. The full announcement can be read below:
