The Hurricane it's more solid than the olthers models, have a metalic parts and a abs plastic battery cover.

 

In the left side we have the buttons. Down button, start the holosight in automatic mode, mean that the Hurricane autoadjust the brightness in function off light, great specification when we play with a lot off sun.

The up button start in normal mode. We can adjust the brightness manually. He have 20 positions.

 

The "NV" button change the color : red or green.

 

The hurricane work with 2 AAA battery, and when the battery is low, he have a flashing pilot in screen, for notice.

 

In the other side he have the buttons for adjust the sight.

I make some differents photography, for test the unit in bad situations off light, and the conclusion is excellent for me.

 

Normal condition off light

Bad condition off light - Front light and rear flash to screen. The red point looks good and very visible

In my opinion it's a good purchase, I think, that only is better the original Eotech bu't it's too expensive for me.

 

Thanks and best regards

Agreed, nice review.

 

It seems like these dont have the "ghosting" problems that alot of the ACM models do, like mine :( but then again these look to be around the $160+ mark so they are double the price.

 

You pay for what you get I guess?

Hi,

 

I pay 155€ (200 $) including shipping and handling to Spain. In Spain is too expensive the Bushnell Holosight, I think it's a best buy in your country and Bushnell is more better than Holosight.

 

Thanks

Oh sorry, I forgot that other countries have to pay more for US made optics *with import restrictions and all*

 

Either way, good job on the review :)

 

Cheers,

Thanks Romel

Yup nice review.

 

I have the HurricanE 553 in tan and while it was quite expensive (£150) it is by far the best airsoft optic I have owned.

Extremely well made and very sturdy plus it looks great.

So far it has held up perfectly with a GBB rifle.

 

I'm glad I paid the extra rather buy a few cheaper optics.
