EOTech Vudu 1x-10x: Best Do-All Scope?

The same company that brought us the world-famous holographic sight as seen on rifles such as the one that killed OBL—all the way to first person video games—is now firmly in the traditional optics category. Certainly the company had a hiccup with its military contract, but after a management change, it’s back on track with a full line of traditional-style riflescopes. This video details why JJ thinks its 1-10x-28mm Vudu is likely the most versatile scope on the market. At 1 power with the illumination turned on, it functions exactly like a red dot sight for EDC and dangerous game hunting, but at 10 power it can be used for long range. But big deal. Why is this so special? Because of its reticle. Formerly if a 1-10 power scope had a reticle that was in the first focal plane, either the reticle would be too big at 1 power or too small to see at 10 power. EoTech solved this with its ingenious reticle-in-reticle system. Check it out here. While the scope isn’t cheap, it’s one of the world’s best do-all riflescopes.

EOTech's Vudu 1x-10x functions like a traditional riflescope at range, but close up, it's illuminated reticle set at one power functions exactly like a red dot. But most impressively, it's has an innovative reticle inside a reticle system that allows for dual reticles, depending on the magnification chosen.

At an early age Jeff was kicked in the face by an exposed hammer shotgun, stunting his growth but also sparking a passion for guns, hunting and the outdoors. Since the crack of that old gun, he's traveled the world, hunting, shooting and writing for national outdoor magazines. His Youtube page adds a bit of practicality to tacticality, dispels hunting and shooting myths, gives fairly honest reviews of guns and gear because he's not beholden to anyone, and offers real-world based tips--that might well be wrong. Rest assured, Jeff is no Navy SEAL, although he stayed at a Holiday Inn once in San Diego.
