I have had experience with ACOG's, but I'm looking into either an aimpoint or EOTech. What models would you recommend on either brand?
That is true of the EOTech. No matter where your head is in relation to the rifle, as long as the red dot is on target you are good to go. I prefer EOTech's due to not destroying your field of veiw. I find that when shooting, I barely notice the eotech itself, only the reticle and my BUIS. As for battery life, I run a 512 with lithium batteries. EOTech states that with lithium batteries, lifespan is 1000 hrs. On the EOTechs there is an 4 or 8 hr auto shutoff. so you can run 250 four hour patrols before needing new batteries or 125 patrols at 8 hrs. So to me that is not a major disadvantage compared to the aimpoints longer service life.Now I heard that you can manipulate the Aimpoint so that the red dot will move around but the point of impact won't change? Is this true of EOTech as well?
Hey I sent you a PM. My XCR is on order right now, but it will be a 5.56 with hvy bbl, M4 folding stock adapter with Magpul CTR and Cheek riser, Ergo Suregrip pistol grip, troy buis, EOTech 512, forward grip, and Magpul Xt Rail covers. I have everything but the weapon. What sucks is that mine wont be here before I leave for A-School on the 5th of January. It is not suppossed to ship until the 23rd of Jan. I might go AWOL just to come home and get it seeing as how my school doesnt end until March 20. Its a Bummer.What xcr setup do you have, I was lookin to get the 556 first then look into the 762, with the possibility of the 6.8
