Thinking of the aimpoint for an M4 project and would like to get an idea of the "magnification in the 2x model. If anyone has a picture through the optic please post it or point me in the direction of a link where I can find one.
Thanks

The issue is not the magnification its the ridiculously narrow FOV and the tunnel effect which can only be appreciated first hand.

Hey dev when did you get back here?

Yea I know the aimpoint isn't the best option for certain applications but I'm building my M4 in .22LR and can't see spending the money for an ACOG. They are sweet but I really don't need it. Similary this weapon's practical use range will be less than 100yrds and likely less than 50 most of the time. It's just a "fun" rig the wife and older kids can learn on. Oh yea and I can have fun with too. Definitely not a combat, self defence type thing. I don't even think I can use it in tactical shoots as they usually require center fire and my varminter is kind of long for that. Thanks for the feedback guys. I guess I'll have to find one, try it and see. I suppose having an ACOG around wouldn't be a bad thing...

Dont sell the 1X Aimpoint short, its an excellent sight. The 2X just sucks in comparison IMHO.
