From the market about 512.XBOW Holographic Weapon Sight

The 512 XBow Holographic Crossbow Sight from EOTech is an unmagnified aiming device combining rapid, both-eyes-open target acquisition, with a sharp reticle suitable for hunting with crossbows. Designed for fast target acquisition and enhanced situational awareness, the unique holographic reticle concept makes the aiming point visible in any lighting condition and remains centered on the target regardless of the operator's shooting angle. Additionally, this Holographic Weapon Sight (HWS) reduces blind spots and tunnel vision common in tube sights, as well as enabling both-eyes-open shooting. Control buttons are positioned on the back (facing the shooter) of the unit, for ease of operation.

This version of the 512 sports a reticle configured for range estimating and holdover specifically for hunting with crossbows. Two reticles appear in the field-of-view; on the left, a range-estimating diagram with a base and stadia lines, and on the right crosshairs with four holdover dots. First, estimate the range to the target. The distance between the base and the stadia lines correspond to an average whitetail's size (18", brisket to shoulder). Placing the base of the scale on the brisket, read the yardage on the line crossing the shoulder; this is your estimated distance to target. To use your holdover dots, the provided Ballistic Wheel will determine the range of each dot based on your arrows' speed.


The Holographic Reflex Sight is submersible to a depth of 33', and is repeatable to 1 MOA after remounting. The rear window is a 3/16" thick shatterproof laminate with anti-glare and scratch resistant coatings, and the front lens is 1/8" solid glass. The sight is virtually parallax free at all distances, a mission-critical feature.
