model? and why is it better than the others?

He was kidding.

I'd suggest an EOTech 512. It uses common AA batteries, costs less than what you are looking to spend, and comes with a built in flattop mount. Best of all it super-tough.

I agree an Eothingy is the way to go IMO. I like it over the Aimpoint(which I own only because I got lucky and got a phat deal).

I have an aimpoint (ml2) and like it. Main thing over the Eotech was the single dot instead of the circle and dot. If they make an Eotech with just a point go for it. I have played with both and felt more comfortable with the Aimpoint.

I also have a Tacpiont on a my Glock CCU and have had no problems so far. It has been there for about and year now. It is just a fun range gun but I don't think I would let my life depend on it.

this is probably an incredibly dumb question, but i've only seen aimpoints mounted in front of the handle on the ar-15.

Is it possibel to mount it right on top where the handle would be?

like i illustrated with this shitty picture: http://home.no/ldom/mygun.GIF
