View Full Version : Does anybody recognize this sight?

It's the one the guy in the suit has on his AR.

Speaking of which, I had a lot of fond memories of the original A-Team.

Sorry about that, I think I fixed it.

Looks like an aimpoint with a scope cover on it.

aimpoint compM3 or compM3L, those come with the rubber cover.

Yep. And they really ripped off the L4D2 "covers" in the first pic :rolleyes:

Either CompM2 or M3. Looks like mine, except I put my "cap retainer thingy" on the outside and I have a flip-up front cover.

Like others have said, it's a CompM3/M3L with the rubber cover installed.

They typically come with a black one, but you can get a tan one instead.

I see, thanks.

How does that compare to the Eotechs with no magnification?

It's kinda "six of one, half dozen of the other." I have both and like both for different reasons. EOTechs are good for quick target acquisition (60 MOA ring) and the center dot is tiny (1 MOA) for more precise work. The Aimpoints are great for battery life (5 years!) but have a slightly larger dot 2 MOA/4 MOA (depending on model) which can make longer shots a touch more difficult (the dot covers more of the target.) You kind of have to try both to really appreciate their differences - either one is a good choice.

It's just preference. Aimpoint has a slightly better reputation for durability, but the odds are that you wouldn't break either. I have an Aimpoint. I have trouble getting a clear image out of EOtechs.
