vortex uh 1 gen 2 pov

This is by far the best EOTECH holographic sight alternative, maybe the only best alternative for the DDM4v7 carbine. The Vortex AMG Gen 2 model has improved the lens tint, window size and power source design without increasing its price tag.

Large Viewing Window - Rear window is larger than Gen 1, and it provides better field of view

AMG CQB Reticle - Open section reticle reduces reticle obstruction over targets at longer distances

No Glass Tint - Better clarity for target ID during day and night

NV Mode - Works with night vision goggles
