I just sold an old N batt 551 EO and will be ordering my new Comp M4.  I know the M4 and the M4s are essentially the same.  Is there any real advantage of one over the other?  Also, AIM surplus had M4s on closeout for $599 but is now sold out.  Is anyplace out there willing to beat the $659 deal I found?

go to botachdefense.com and register for thier member pricing (you might want to call and ask) .  They will hook you up although it might take a day.  The regular price on the M$s they have is $729, the member price is $570.

If I were getting one, I would get the model with the battery tube and rotary switch on them bottom. The reason is to protect the housing and more importantly the switch from impact if I drop the gun and to keep from inadvertently having the switch change settings. That's based on my experiences with a M2.

Also keeps the profile height of  the sight down as well...

Is Botach defense the same company as Botach tactical?  If so, I will pass.  They dicked up the only order I ever made from them, and would not return my calls or emails.  This was before I ever read all the negative reviews about thier customer service.  I have learned my lesson from a relatively cheap screwing.  No need to take a chance of throwing good money after bad.

+1

That's why I got the low battery tube model.

And I like it very much.

Regarding the M4s, if a right-handed shooter pivot-mounts a 3x magnifier in the out of battery position...
the magnifier obstructs the manipulation of the illumination control knob.
Now of course this depends alot on how they're mounted, but just an observation

Do you plan to change the red dot intensity a lot or go back and forth to/from NV settings while shooting?

If Yes, go with the M4. The switch on top of the M4 will be easier to reach in stressful situations.



Otherwise go with the M4s.



YMMV
