    I had one on my AR. It was a great sight. They are rather expensive, but I think mine was worth it.

    Worth the money? Every penny of it. If you can possibly budget one in then buy one.

    I looked at EoTech and AimPoint and decided on the AimPoint. Right now my 556 is "inbound", and I hope to have it in my grubby little hands in about 1 1/2 weeks (Maryland wait period on UBRs).

    As an aside if you have 556 questions, do you know about SIG 556 :: Index ? It's got some good info on it, including a great section on optics.

    What models are you all typically putting on for EOTECH and/or AIMPOINT?

    AR15 that is.

    Thanks

    The Eotech's are excellent. One of the best optics available and on par with the Aimpoints. They are not cheap but you get what you pay for.

    I have had an EOTech on my service rifle since 2003. I think they are hands-down the best close range optic out there. Save up if you have to, but if you are putting a CCO on your rifle, you'll be happy with the EOTech.

    As to which model, it's really personal preference. They all do the same things, at heart. Figure out what features you want/need, what sort of batteries you want to use, and go for it.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    My job put them on all our Bushmaster M4s. I just went to a Carbine Instructor School with the FBI and put them to the true test. They are excellent for quick sight pictures.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    I'm going with a AimPoint M4s for close up and the AimPoint 3X for the "reach out and touch someone" option.

    I've seen some of the EOTECHs and like them also, just not quite as much.
