Default Optics Dilemma!!!

I've just purchased an Aimpoint ML2 at a decent price. My dilemma is this; I need to get rid of either the Aimpoint or my Eotech 511. Reason being is that I need to recover some funds. I currently have the Eotech mounted on my AR which has been a great setup. About a month ago I purchased a Trijicon Accupoint 1-4x to mount on my M1A Scout. Well now I dont know what to do with what. So my question is this, out of the three optics, which do i pair with what? and which do I sell. My two rifles being an AR and the M1A Scout? Your suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks.

Seems to me you keep your current setup and sell the recently acquired Aimpoint. Or buy another AR for the aimpoint.

What do you plan to do with these rifles? Can you acquire a target quickly with both eyes open using the Tijicon? If so, I would keep it and sell one of the red dot sights. I could go either way, but generally favor the Aimpoint over the Eotech's grainy reticle.

speed wise you can't beat both the Aimpoint and Eotech. personally i favor the Aimpoint for precise and simple (fast) dot. Reach wise the Trijicon gives you magnification for longer distance precision. So it's up to you which rifle you'll use for longer distance duty.

M1A in my opinion is better suited for long range work due to the harder hitting ammo and heavier rifle weight. 1x setting allows for 'Aimpoint' like aiming method w/o the batteries.... come to think of it, sell the Eotech!
