Haven't used the Aimpoint yet, although I've used both the EOTech and the ATN Digital. Truth be told, I preferred the ATN over the EOTech.
Not to suggest that the EOTech wasn't good - I thought it was pretty freaking cool actually - but the ATN just seemed to fit me better.
I can only assume that the Aimpoint would be similar, however one thing that I liked about the ATN was that there was really no "scope".. it was just a round piece of glass that you looked through with no magnification. I DID look through an Aimpoint once and I remember thinking that I liked the ATN better.
I own an aimpoint and love it ....for me its much clearer than eotech's i've used. The life of the batteries are much,much longer life on the aimpoints. I have a high mount on mine so when i bring the rifle up to my face i don't have to crank my head down to look thru the optic , its right in my line of sight . If you get a chance go to the aimpoint web site and read everything on " why to buy " very informative i think. my sell u on it !
i posed a pic of mine a couple weeks ago if u wanna see.
yeah I'd love to see the pic. Thanks. I liked the EoTech when I used it but didn't feel it was all that accurate. But I could see the increse in speed for CBQ situations. I would have also liked to have a single dot instead of the crosshair.
Aimpoint v. EoTech really boils down to shooter-preference.
Personally, I find the EoTech's reticle "too busy." I dislike the controls on the EoTech as well. There were initial problems with EoTechs not holding a zero which did nothing to endear them to me, though these problems seem to have been corrected.
I can get hits on a man-sized target out to ~400 meters with an Aimpoint. I find Aimpoint simple to use and fast at close-range. Several of my co-workers prefer the EoTech and are able to shoot as well, if not better than I can with them.
My suggestion would be to try both and go with the one you prefer.
