    What he's referring to is that with the EOTech you can have your head anywhere you want and as long as you can see the reticle you will hit the target. With the Aimpoint the dot should be centered on the glass for best accuracy - with the EOTech it doesn't matter.

    I have a 552 AA ver., and so far I like it. It may not be as "bullet proof" as the Aimpoint but unless you are at war dose it matter to you?

    You can rise the intensity in day light to the point of being way to bright.

    When I was looking for optics I talked with 7 guys that worked on some sort of tac team, SWAT types. A couple were diehard EoTech or Aimpoint. The rest said get what works for me. I was hoping I would get a clear get that model answer.

    Isn't the Reflex supposed to be accurate if it's not centered also? I've never put too much effort into centering the dot and never had any problem hitting my target. I've actually never tried to see how tight a group I could get with mine either though. I know they work with both eyes open.

    The holographic dot is projected out to the target.
    It does not get "beamed out" to the target like a laser but, the hologram puts the dot "out there" on the plane of the target rather than the reticle being at the weapon location.
    Humm........let me see if I can find you a more suitable and better explanation than the one I just gave you.

    OK GO HERE - Try The Simulator - (fun, but not really an actual true simulation) and then click on "Technology" at the top of the page and then click on Making A Hologram on the pull down menu. L-3 EOTech Holographic Weapons Systems

    I should add that one huge advantage of the hologram is if you wear eyeglasses.

    For instance if you are "near sighted" and wear glasses to focus images that are far away - keeping your eyeglasses on - the lighted reticle inside the EoTech and the far away target will both be in sharp, crisp, focus with your eyeglasses on because the hologram reconstructs both the target and the superimposed reticle on the same plane of focus.
    It's amazing technology really.

    I have an EOTech on each of my AR builds...very nice but I wouldn't have spent the $$ for a new one.
    I picked up two of the Bushnell Trophy (ACOG copy) for 179.00 which seems to work just fine.
    If it was a "work" rifle I'd feel different I'm sure. For hunting the paper zombies I can't talk myself...or the wife into ACOG/(new)EOTech money. I saw the 4X magnifier for the EOtechs today..700.00. I almost fell over.
