Good enough for general use?

Yes

Absolutely.

Absolutely

I have several Comp M2s, and functionally they are no different than the Pros. Not sure if they NVG compatible though, if that's an issue.

Yes. Great optic.

Are extra batteries readily available?  Thanks guys.

Yeah, I get the DL1/3N batteries at my local fleet farm for $3.50-ish. I have a comp ml3, but pretty sure it's the same battery

You won't need one for a couple years... But yes

They are supposed to last 30,000 hours... roughly 3 years.  Just order one and put it in every two and you should be fine.





If REALLY worried about battery life, spend the $$ on an M4s, it lasts 80,000 hours on a litium AA from your local drug store.



Whomever mentioned checking the fleet farm for the DL1/3N batteries, thanks for the tip.  I hate paying $15 shipping on 5 batteries totaling $20

I decided on the primary arms version. 1/3rd the price. Ordered Sunday, delivered today.

The local Home Depot here carries the right batteries-that's where I get mine

My bump in the night AR is kept next to the nightstand with the optic turned on 24/7/365. I replace it every couple of years...whether it needs it or not.

Pros are definitely NVG compatible.

Good enough for Privates, Sergeants, Majors, everyone, not just Generals.

Good to know, thanks brother

Since everyone likes pics, here are a couple of mine:


And my precocious kiddo a couple of years ago after swiping one of my Aimpoints to use on her Sig:

Aimpoint pro good to go. Get the magnifier and QD mount from PA to go with it. Worth every penny.

Link Posted: 1/22/2014 6:34:24 AM EDT
Solid.

Maybe I just wanted to hear personal experiences from members here?
Link Posted: 1/22/2014 6:46:23 AM EDT
I think so.  I've got a lot of Aimpoints and the Pro is a fine RDS.

Link Posted: 1/22/2014 7:00:19 AM EDT
Although battery life sucks compared to an aimpoint, I like the Eotech for close in work better due to easier target acquisition. I still have much love for an ACOG with the doctor red dot on top, but damn they are pricey.
Link Posted: 1/22/2014 7:04:40 AM EDT
What I think is cool about the red-dots is that you could cover the lens and still aim with both eyes open.  In other words, the ACOG Binden Aiming Concept works for them too.
Link Posted: 1/22/2014 7:10:41 AM EDT
Yes, buy it.  I started out buying the cheap red dots, ended up being disapointed and selling at a loss.   It cost me more in the long run, buy once cry once, get the pro.
Link Posted: 1/22/2014 7:17:24 AM EDT
I think the Aimpoint PRO is the best deal out there now.

Interesting, that seems like a great price, wonder how they hold up compared to the aimpoint pro.

Excellent optic.  Its essentially a bargain version of the M3 with a little less battery life (30,000 hrs vs 50,000 hrs).
