Anyone play around with one yet , are there diff red dot size options like the M3. The M4 comes with built in mount , or is it better to get a M3 with larue mount.

No one has seen an Aimpoint Comp M4 ?

Seen pictures of it from the SHOT show, yeah, but you do realize that it's so new that it's not even listed on Aimpoints web site, right?

I've never seen it. Probably an even more ridiculously long battery life and waterproof to a deeper depth. That'd be my guess.

I'll have to look at my SHOT swag but I think it only comes with the 2moa dot. And only in the night vision capable version, although it has more selection of daylight brightness settings. More streamlined knobs and controls, AA battery for even greater battery life than the 3 series and easy battery replacement. The built in mount takes case of mounting hassles.

Looked like a great sight, just have to see what the cost looks like when it gets to market.

Thanks , i do understand there new , but they are now in stores in Canada . We are always way behind you guys and figured it would be out in the US and atleast some people would have been playing with them . They are 779.00 Cdn with built in mount , but i was wondering if it is better to get a M3 with Larue . Thanks

You are going to get as good with a M3 and Larue mount as with the M4. The M4 are rugged and uses an AA battery for a duration of over 100k hours. but the battery life has just gone beyond the shelf life of the battery. fopr the price I would still go with the LaRue with M3.

For that matter, the M3 doesn't offer a whole lot more than the M2 series.

The upgrades each M-Series gets aren't all that compelling.

Great optic, not much difference between specs on M2, 3 & 4's.

At least not much difference 99% of most applications.

The built in mount does nothing for me. Battery life beyond the M3 series does nothing for me. The slimmed down design does very little for me. Am I missing something?

Hmmm MSRP of $699.00 is kind of rich for my wallet!

impoint CompM4 Reflex Sight is a rugged precision red dot Sight developed mainly for military and
law enforcement applications.

Aimpoint red dot sights are designed for the "two eyes open" method of sighting which greatly enhances
situation awareness and target acquisition speed. Thanks to the parallax-free design, the dot follows the
movement of the user's eye while remaining fixed on the target, eliminating any need for centering.
Further the sight allows for unlimited eye-relief and is compatible with 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation night
vision devices.

The CompM4 Sight is using a AA size battery, which together with the extremely low power consumption
gives an unequalled battery life.

The CompM4 combines the superior accuracy and ease of use of the wellknown CompM2 model with
significantly longer battery life and increased ruggedness through reinforced design.

The CompM4 is provided with a torque knob, Quick Release (QRP2) mount. An additional Carry Handle
Gooseneck Rail meeds to be mounted on the M16A2 carrying handle.

The Sight has a Spacer system that gives optimal height of the line of sight (optical axis) on different weapons.

besides battery life, i'm not seeing much of an advantage over the m3 2moa, and the price is kinda nutty. I rather have a comp with an arms or larue anyways.

In my mind battery AVAILABILITY is a much bigger advantage than batter LIFE with the M4. That being said, I could stock up on a lot of 1/3 Ns for $200.

The AA battery use is great for the troops who might have a hard time finding battery options, but for the $200 plus price difference I think the M3 Larue set up will work just fine... spend the extra $200 buying mags and ammo before congress gets moving on HR 1022.....

With batterys lasting over a year on settign 7, and figuring that i turn mine off every time, i think that for the 20 bucks i have to spend on a battery won't be an issue. Unless people start hording them like bullets and brass.

I noticed there is reinforcement around the windage and elevation knobs. Did the predecessors have an issue with breakage in these areas?
