I've been looking at lots of pics on this forum and it's roughly a 50-50 split between an Aimpoint and an Eotech. I currently use an Aimpoint on my AR but also have the Holosight on another gun. I'd need a riser to get the Holo to co-witness with my irons. Love the Holosight as it makes aiming so instinctual.

What's your preference and why? Should I get a riser ... Yankee Hill or other suggestions would be nice.

I got the YHM riser because I am cheap and believe it or not it works great.

You know, I'm normally not one for calling out even the most egregious dupes, but it seems like there's at least one thread a day on this. Why have we not picked the best "eotech v. aimpoint" thread and tacked it in the optics forum?

Here's the last one, posted yesterday afternoon:

ETA: Oh, and Eotech!

do a search for aimpoint or eotech and you will find 30 similar posts asking the same thing.

BTW, eotechs do not need a riser to cowitness. They only need one if you want it to cowitness in the bottom 1/3rd.

Even Though Ann Arbor is a Whore, Go with the Michigan made EOTech!
The Aimpoint is real "nice."
I've owned both and will never go back....

Yea I'm an asshole buckeye, I know.

I love the EOThingy - and I don't need a riser to get it to co-witness.

EOTech mounted directly to the flattop.

Hot a clear choice - true

But hey are not that similar to use.

EOtech may be easier to acquire on a quick shot, and the Aimpoint a more durable and versatile choice

kevatc......... see if you can use one or the other before deciding. You may be surprised at how they work "in action," and it could certainly help decide between the two.

Both are in use with our armed forces, with the Aimpoint probably having the military-use advantage

I'll get my +1 for EOtech directly on the flat-top in quick before the mods lock this bad-boy up for massive dupeness.

Link Posted: 12/19/2005 4:00:10 PM EDT
Yes, there are a million post with NO definitive answers!
I'm curious myself, which is better and why! I would like to see why the military uses them more. Which do you guys like more. Which is better for FA? Which is better for single shots? Which is better for both?

Tack it up in every forum, and make reading it part of the new user process.

I much prefer the Eotech

and while the Eotech has much lees battery like, its alot easier to scorge up some AA's if needed, rather then 1/3N IIRC.
