Go to the "Sights and Optics" forum and post this question.

In short, the guys here have a lot of CQB experience with sight systems but I have never heard of the Leupold being a preferred system.  In most cases, we all seemt to come down to Aimpoint, ACOG or EOTECH.

I chose the COMP ML2 becasue of the price.  Had I been able to afford it I would have gotten the ACOG.  However, I do not regret getting the Aimpoint.  It's been a great sight.

Will do.

The reason I ask about the Leupold is I have the opportunity to get one for about half price.  If its not a smoking pile of crap I'll have to jump on it.

I know the century is young, but the CQ/T has earned the title thus far.  It was VERY HIGHLY anticipated, but when it arrived, was underwelming.  Big, bulking and cheap looking.  

EOTech is smaller, better and less $$$

My two cents.

I know an instructor for the USBP that evaluated them. He agreed with you, they were not that good.

i had one on my AR for over a year and i thought it was fine. yeah it is a bit bulky, the aimpoints and acogs are smaller, but the leupold does have the variable magnification plus illuminated retical. and you don't have to turn the thing on to use the optic, a big advantage. it kinda takes the best of both worlds - 4X magnification of acog and illuminated reticle of aimpoint - and puts them into a single variable package. however, i ended up selling it to a friend of mine and replaced it with an acog NSN 01. i miss the zero magnification simplicity, but i do like the smaller size and tritium reticle of the acog.

bottom line, if you can pick this up for less than $400, it's a steal.
