The new series includes the Model 518 and 558 and will hit retail stores just in time for the holiday gift-giving season.

In response to customer demand, EOTech took all of the best features of its HWS products and combined them into these highly functional and easy-to-use new sights. The 518/558 models both feature the highly sought-after quick-release base and side-button functionality of the EXPS series and run on AA batteries (lithium or alkaline), the most common batteries in the world.

"We are very excited about our latest HWS offerings," said Mark Miller, EOTech product manager. "By combining the HWS features our customers are most interested in and incorporating them into one design, we are able to provide them a better solution. What's more, the two new sights are classified under the U.S. Department of Commerce for export, making it easier for international customers to sell and use our products."

The 518 and 558 are compatible with the G33 Magnifier and the recently released EOTech Laser Battery Caps (LBCs), doubling the aiming capability. Simply remove the standard cap and replace it with the drop-in LBC visible laser or the LBC2 with both visible and infrared lasers.

Both new models are feature-rich versions of EOTech's best-selling sights. MSRP on the Model 518 is $539 and $629 for the Model 558.
