ANN ARBOR, Mich., May 5, 2018 – EOTech, an L3 company, announced today that it has received the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) Golden Bullseye Optic of the Year award for its Vudu™ 1–6x rifle scope. The award was presented on Friday, May 4, by Mark Keefe, Editor-in-Chief of American Rifleman, at the NRA’s Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Dallas, Texas.
“It is a tremendous honor to receive the NRA’s coveted Golden Bullseye for the Vudu 1–6x,” said Ann Hanson, Chief Marketing Officer for EOTech. “We were confident that the Vudu line of scopes would resonate with shooters and hunters of all stripes, and to receive validation in the form of this award is immensely satisfying.”
“This is the first Golden Bullseye Award American Rifleman has presented to EOTech, and the Vudu 1–6x is more than worthy of the prestigious award. It is an innovative solution for both medium- and close-range target acquisition,” said Keefe.
The recipient of numerous accolades since its release in 2017, the Vudu line of rifle scopes combines durability, precision and versatility. The line includes six different models in configurations ranging from 1–6x24mm up to 5–25x50mm.
Compact in stature, but loaded with features, the 10.63-inch, 20.1-ounce Vudu 1–6x is equally at home on an AR-style rifle as it is on a favorite deer gun. The first focal plane-illuminated Speed Ring reticle allows for fast target engagement at low power. At high power, a holdover reticle provides markings for sure holds out to 600 yards. The glass inside the Vudu 1–6x’s 30mm tube boasts excellent light transmission, resolution and edge-to-edge clarity for optimized target acquisition in any light conditions.
