The EXPS3 is an excellent choice not only for hunters, but for professionals such as the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), which has standardized on the HWS as its weapon optic for close quarter situations. The EXPS3 offers true two eyes open shooting for fast target acquisition, as well as a 7 mm raised base for iron sight access and night vision capability. It also has side buttons and an adjustable, locking, quick-detach lever for easy installment.
