Anybody have one of these? How do you like them? I'm thinking of getting one for my 20" A3 Bushy, which is sort of my medium range AR.

the parallax negates the point of having an aimpoint also the 2x isnt much more magnification to justify it.


save the money and get something else

The aimpoint websight says all aimpoints are parallax free. I am also interested in the 2x model. I'd like some info from someone who has actually used one.

I've tried one but wouldn't take one if you gave it to me. It was like looking through a cardboard tube. The FOV really stinks compared to almost any other optic I have looked through. The 2X Aimpoints are incredibly unpopular for a reason - they're not good. If you want an Aimpoint with magnification, you're much better off buying an Aimpoint and their 3X magnifier mounted with a Samson quick flip mount. It won't be cheap mind you buy if you want an Aimpoint with magnification, it's the best way to achieve your goal. This combo also gives you all the advantages of the Aimpoint without the disadvantage of the "cardboard tube" FOV of a 2X Aimpoint.
