Which of these compact ACOG's would you prefer? The weapon it will be mounted on is a Colt 16" lightweight A2 style carbine. Since it's got A2 sights on it, I'll be doing a carry handle mount. It's main use will be 0-300 yds, though 0-100 will likely be far more common.

I honestly prefer the compact ACOG's (other than Tatjana I'm probably the only person here who does), but I am torn between the 3 models listed. Should I go with the:

TA44-5 1.5X16 red dot?

TA44R-4 1.5X16 red crosshair?

TA50-4 3X24 amber crosshair?

The red dot would likely be best at CQB distances, but I like the crosshair models as well and feel they'd be the best bet out past 100 yds. Overall, I am leaning toward the crosshair models as I feel they would be most versatile across the widest range of applications. But which one....the lower powered red version or 3 power amber? I like the idea of low power for up close work because of the increased field of view. But the 3x would obviously be a plus out at 300 yds. So which would you go with?

Or would you just skip them all and go straight to the TA50-2 with amber triangle?

My favorite so far is the TA50-2.

I did not care for the crosshairs, IMHO the triangle provides a finer aiming point for 'precision' and a easier to see aiming point for BAC type shooting.

I have not tried the 'dot' versions, but I'd imagine if you like Aimponts it would be an easy transition.

I absolutely love my TA44R-4. It is excellent for all around work!

2x Triangle is the best, and I have owned all versions of the compact acog.

I like the TA50-4. I drilled a mounting hole closer to the rear sight for improved cheek weld and a more natural feeling eye relief. I use iron out to 200 and just lift my head a bit and use the scope. Works great. Personally I like the amber better than the red. IMHO I would rather have an Aimpoint than a 1.5X.

I have the TA50-4, and love it. I can also give the rifle to ANYBODY, and they know how to use a crosshair.
