I very recently sold my Aimpoint Comp-M & jumped on the EOTech bandwagon. Though I am very satisfied with the EOTech for CQB (Indoor), I do miss my Aimpoint.

Maybe it's just me, but I was at the range today zeroing my EOTech sight & I had a pretty hard time seeing the reticle in the bright sunlight even with the brightness setting turned all the way up. I never had this problem with my Aimpoint. The place where I shoot had covered bencherests, but the targets downrange were in the sunlight. Perhaps it would have helped if I had some black Shoot-N-C stickers on my targets, but a white paper target washed out the reticle pretty bad. I had to use my BUIS & C0-host back & forth to make sure that I was on target.

Anyone else have this problem with the EOTech and what did you do to remedy it?

Here was my old set up with the Aimpoint & the current EOTech below:

I'm considering giving the EOTech to the guy that I sold my Aimpoint to & getting my Aimpoint back. Am I making a mistake?

Yes, especially if the Comp M is the non-XD model. If your EOTech is dimmer than the Aimpoint then clearly something is wrong with it, and you'd be better off trying to resolve the issue with EOTech customer support.

Wow.

I don't have a problem shooting at an old washer (bright white paint..........with a lot of holes in the side) on a bright sunny day. And I'm just messing around at our farm, not under some covered shooting bench. I'd say you need to get it checked out by EOTech. Their legendary customer service will fix you right up if you actually do have a problem.
