I think I am going to break down and buy an aimpoint for my duty rifle.  I enjoy shooting at distance with my magnifier, but real world applications will most likely be inside 100 yards.

Which dot size would you recommend?

Will the 2 MOA at high brightness be quick enough to pick up for CQB.

I have family coming by Midway today and they could pick one up for me, if I can decide on dot size.

One rifle that has to do CQB, perimeter, wooded clears etc.

I like the idea of the 2MOA, but wanted to make sure I would not loose speed up close.  I would assume at brigther levels, it should be quick to pick up.

Keep the input coming, I still have about 20 minutes before I need to call Midway.

I use the 2MOA on my distance rifle and 4MOA on all the others, and the 4MOA suffices
well out to 100 even with these shitty 60 yr old eyes. But distance definitely the 2MOA

Thanks to all that responded.

I went with the 2 MOA C3.  I should have it by 1300.

I've got the 2MOA version and the highest setting on my ML3 makes the dot look bigger.  It looks closer to a 4 MOA.  So, if you want a bigger dot for close up, turn the knob all the way up.

I've had several RDS's through the years and need to see if I am doing something wrong or its my eyes.

When looking at it the dot never looks round, unless I turn the dial way down.  Then it washes out on a variety of targets.  The dot looks like a four point star to me and my wife.

It looks more like a hash when viewed through the magnifier––like 3 dots side to sdie.  If it was at least horizontal I could live with it, but the "line" angles down to the left.

Any thoughts?
