The E is for Extreme. The EXPS3 offers true 2-eyes-open shooting and a 7 mm raised base that still allows for iron sight access. It features easy-to-adjust side buttons and an adjustable locking quick-detach lever for easy attachment and removal. EXPS3 was chosen by the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) as their primary optic for close-quarter engagements. It is also the optic of choice for the technologically advanced modern rifle hunter. Its night vision-compatibility makes it a versatile choice for day or night hunting. - Product Details - Night vision compatible - Length/Width/Height: 3.8 x 2.3 x 2.9 (96.5 x 58.4 x 73.7 mm) - Weight: 11.2 oz (317.5 g) - Water Resistant: Submersible to 33 ft.
