View Full Version : AR-15 ACOG, Anyone prefer the 3x or 3.5x over the 4x?

Ive been wanting one of these suckers for some time now... xmass is as good as any excuse to get one for myself....

I think I'm going to be going with the Green Chevron....

not sure if I should go 3.5x or 4x

The eye relief of the 3.5 model is welcome but the 4x has more magnification and more field of view.

I like the 4x for its size, and view. Used one for years atop my M4 while on SWAT here in Stockton. One of these days I'll have one of my own!

4x looks way better when looking through it. So wide of a FOV, so bright and pretty. My dad got the 3x even though I told him not to and to get the 4x instead....he now regrets it.

Sure the eye relief is nice. But it's a 5.56.....there's really no recoil to begin with, so you can get your eye right up on there with no problems.

I prefer the TA33 as it has the most most eye relief. It is also smaller and lighter than the TA31 and TA11. Next up for eye relief is the TA11. Last is the TA31.

I have a 3.5 and a 4. Eye relief on the 3.5 is more than enough. 4 is less bit not a problem. I really cant decide what i like better. Thats why i have both.

It's either more eye relief, or better sight picture... choose which you prefer and go from there.

I found the 4x version, once you train up a bit, you can get proper eye relief almost instantly.

TA33s w/green chevrons and TA11 w/red doughnut.
That extra eye relief trumps field of vision for me.

Vote for TA33G-H

Eye relief and light weight. Also BAC works better for me with the smaller body. Have had TA01 and TA11 prev.
