eotech or Aimpoint which is better

Citadel99 June 6, 2004, 08:58 AM So, I’m wanting to get an optic for my M4gery. I also plan on strapping it to my M4 when I head off to Iraq this fall. So ruggedness, battery life, and all those little things that go hand in hand with having a weapon on your person 24/7/365 come in to play. I’m pretty much set on one of these two options. I’ve used an Aimpoint and really it. Never had the chance to use the EOTech, though… Thanks in advance, Mark dave3006 June 6, 2004, 09:23 AM I bought the EOtech and returned it. I own the Aimpoint Comp ML2. The EOtech was too big. It was like having a big screen TV mounted to my gun. The controls were slow and not intuitive. I did not like the busy circle/dot reticle. Batteries are really not an issue. You can leave the Aimpoint on for a year. greenmountaingear June 6, 2004, 09:59 AM EO TECH hands down. I dumped my Aimpoint shortly after buying a 552 EOtech . Liked the EO some much that I became a dist/dealer for them! Wouldn’t use anything else now. Rev.F 552′s have about 1000+hrs on a couple “AA”‘s. Never had any issues with any model I’ve owned and could acquire my targets far faster than with the aimpoint. Comes down to what works for you though :) Ever board has at least 6 of these threads, 120pages long…EO vs. Aimpoint. LOL! If ya ever need an EO or info, drop me a line! GMG Hutch June 6, 2004, 10:27 AM Well, glad you two guys cleared that up for me!!! Somebody else wade in and break the tie.

You might buy an EOtech, fall in love with it, and then finally use an Aimpoint and discover you like it better. To each his own. Just see if you can find some folks who would let you shoot theirs. MaceWindu June 6, 2004, 02:47 PM I like the Eotech….cheap and easily replaced batteries, great HUD, VERY accurate. Here is the EOtech 552 on top of my Custom mini…. http://img62.photobucket.com/albums/v188/Triggerman/ASIside001.bmp http://img62.photobucket.com/albums/v188/Triggerman/ASItarget001.bmp That is a dime for reference @ 80yrds. There are 3 separate groups there….EoTech gets my vote…. MaceWindu Blackhawk 6 June 6, 2004, 07:46 PM The EOtech is a good sight but of the two, has significantly more reliability issues. The Aimpoint is an excellent sight and holds up well under the rigors of military use. My recommendation is to go with the M-68. 444 June 6, 2004, 09:35 PM This question often inspires more than a few emotional responses. I prefer the Aimpoint. I have never owned an Eotech, but one of my best friends has one, so I am pretty familiar with it. I have shot his enough to know that I like mine better. More than one person in the know agrees with me. For example: Pat Rogers considers the Aimpoint to be clearly superior. warrior23 June 6, 2004, 10:29 PM Lets just say you cant go wrong with either site.Both are great sites my EOtech I feel is a little quicker in CQB,My Aimpoint works better for me at longer distances.So do what I did and buy Both! Rocko June 7, 2004, 12:03 PM I have both the EOtech 511 and the Aimpoint Comp M. While I like both, I feel that the EOtech is basically more advanced – at least from a user perspective if not a technical perspective. While the EOtech is a bigger, this also allows for a greater FOV – I don’t really even notice the housing of the EOtech as I do the tube on the aimpoint. From a total cost perspective on a flattop AR, the EOtech is also almost always going to win, as you don’t need to purchase a separate mount for it. The battery life issue was addressed in revision F, but I believe these are in short supply right now, which probably won’t change anytime soon. EOtech was just awarded a large contract for the SOPMOD2 project (along with Eclan and Trijicon) so most new production will likely be focused on that. Interestingly, Aimpoint, was NOT awarded part of that contract – reinforcing my idea that while both are good, the EOtech is the “new” while Aimpoint the “old”. Rocko
