    Aimpoint.

    I'm assuming you're not comfortable with the eotech because it only has one optic. That results in a parallax affect, where the dot isn't where it will shot if you're not holding the rifle the same way you sighted it in. The aimpoint does not do that.

    Basically you have to shoulder the eotech and hold it the exact same position each time. That's what you're suppose to do, but not everyone is a uber commando and don't care that much and doesn't run around shooting paper like they are in Iraq.

    Edit: They're cheaper then trijicon sites like that, but that site you posted is good. The standard aimpoint for 1/2 the price isn't going to have magnification but it can be added and the end result in price is similar to the trijicon but you'll have two pieces on your rail Vs. just one.

    hard to say why I didn't like the eotech but it didn't click for me at all. having two pieces on the top rail makes me shit bricks but I may have to get over it

    You could not be more wrong. Both the aimpoint and eotech have parallex withing 50 yards. Under 50 yards,the parallex is insignificant.

    Not really bro, have you ever tried both? Not to mention it was designed to be parallax free :hsugh:

    sorry, meant it was too much tube.

    problem is I'm having to balance the need to engage targets at medium distance with close quarters work as well. I can't snap to with a scope like that.

    It sounds like you want something more fast paced. You should always shoot with both eyes open, even with irons, because when shit hits the fan and you're under a lot of stress both of your eyes are going to be coming out of your head.

    This is just my opinion but an aimpoint, with a magnifier on a pivot mount that can be moved out of the way, sounds best for you.

    Like this, except in person looking through the site won't be that weird looking:

    I'd like to see that thing go through a battle rattle first. But yeah, high speed is the name of the game.

    "Aimpoint sights can be used with both eyes open, giving an unlimited field of view at any distance. Eye relief is unlimited, so the user's eye position behind the sight does not affect how well the target or the aiming point can be seen. Aimpoint sights also utilize a double lens system, making the sight parallax-free, which means that no matter where on the sight lens the red dot is reflected, the user's point of aim will be the point of impact, so long as the distance is over 50 yards."

    Straight from aimpoint meaning the aimpoint does have parallax, and the eotech has no parallax after 22yds and 0-25yds it will only be off by around 3/4" vs the aimpoint being off closer to 1" from 0-50yds

    EoTechs reticle is better also than aimpoints dot

    I don't think you understand what parallax is you moron.

    If you have the sight mounted 2 inches above the bore line and sight the rifle in at 50+ yards of course it's going to shoot high at 20 yards. That has nothing to do with parallax. In fact they even say it's parallax free.

    Explain to us what parallax is and why the aimpoint has it sub 50 yards please. :hsugh:

    Im talking about with a laser boresight asshole unless lasers go up and down to with yards

    OMG a company said something it must be trueeeeeee

    Laser boresight, real bullets, either way it's going to end up in the same place.

    Since you think I'm wrong explain what parallax is and how being closer to the target would effect it. :hsugh:

    So heres the test take laser boresight zero it 50yds put laser dot on red dot

    Move closer and the laser dot will be off by 1-2" by the time you get to zero yards

    Take eotech do the same thing and the laser will be on target tell around 25yds

    Are we not talking about within 50 yards still?

    How much drop happens on a typical round, lets say the military uses, within 50 yards?
