I'm considering a reddot/ holo/ geewhiz type of AR sight system. My question is: if I was looking in the cheap to mid range (that is to say, I want ACOG but can't afford it!) what's the general consensus? I've been looking at Eotechs, Tri Reflex, Aimpoint comp C/M, now I'm lost. Anyone with experience with any of these? I have flattops and A2s, probably get something for each. Waddya think, hmmm?

I'd like to know from folks who have tried them too. I want something good, but as many of you know, I'm a cheap bastard so I want the most for my cash w/o spending much of it. Hell, what do I care, I can't hit shit anyway!

i don't have any of them, but from what i have seen here on AR15 and from people i have talked with that have them, i am going to get an eotech when i get some cash saved up.

I would say get the Eotech then. I know a couple of guys I work with that uses them and are pleased. I use the Aimpoint ML2 on my patrol rifle but it cost a little more when you had the mounting system. Here's a picture.

Don't think you can go wrong with either one.

Hey Lumpy it was because of your endorsement I went with the Aimpoint. Thanks.Reddog132

I prefer the EOTech, and know two associates that change over from aimpoint to EOTech.

BUT, the ACOG is best if you can come up with the money.

Hey, guys, I really appreciate the clues. AND the pix. I just noticed the forum for optics, so I'll troll over there a while, see what I can learn. Thanks again!

I have a Aimpoint and several EOtechs...While both good sights there is an inch of dust on my Aimpoint.

Things I like on the EOtech better than my Aimpoint...
Built in mount (Aimpoint has about $125 into the mount)
Auto Off function (My Aimpoint is probably still on in the safe)
Parralax Free since its not a Tube Optic
1MOA center Dot (IIRC Aimpoint is 4MOA)
65MOA cirle in Recticle

Lumpy must be another cheap bastage.

I prefer Aimpoint to the EOTech and non BAC ACOGs.

+1 on the Aimpoint. Makes a blind guy like me into a pretty decent shooter.

Im half ass blind myself. I have neer used an Aimpoint.

I have a battery rifle and a non battery rifle.

Surefire & EOTech vs. Reflex II. And Lumpy is right, it is Ford vs. Chevy, and ymmv.

I like my Reflex for the reason I got trijicon in the first place. No batteries. Not now, not ever. Dot is always there, it loves me long time.

The EOTech is good, shoots great, like the trijicon, dead ass on, but that damn battery crack habit, while not bad, still needed.

<insert tinfoil> TEOTWAWKI & SHTF there will be no battery resupply.

I had ACOG compact, and tried it out for a few thousand miles, I wanted something heads up for my main AR bitch, not a damn scope. The Reflex worked much better in that application imho.


BTW- From Experience- Bushnell Holosigh/ ATN- Save your money.
