I have a firm grasp of my preferences in every area except magnified optics. Took me a couple of months to settle on a scope for my latest build

Its not that the aimpoint is a bad optic, I just think the magnified optic is better for general use. RDS being better for CQB.

We can't have magnified optics, but can have 3x magnifiers for some reason? So we are pretty limited to Aimpoint or Eotech, makes the choice easy

Coaxial alignment, durability, FOV, operator considerations...

Sounds like somebody in your department is squared the "F" away...

Haha I trust them, I just email them when considering a purchase and they always point me in the right direction

I have three configs for patrol.

7.5" plus an EOTech.
14.5" EOTech and G23FTS
14.5" plus a Nikon P223

Right now, its setup 7.5/EXPS 3-0 with my other upper setup ready to go.

Pretty versatile.

Same here. I've had a few guys try and sneak in bull**** optics and I won't approve them. We can't have scopes but a 3x mag for a quality RDS is okay.

FYI, Despite what was stated earlier:

3x mag on an EOtech does NOT make the dot bigger. It stays at 1 MOA.

An aimpoint dot DOES get bigger with magnification.

Have you looked at a TA-47? I have been lusting for one for some time. It seems to be an often overlooked option.

Technically, if what you're saying is true (I've never paid attention before), an Eotech dot becomes 1/2 MOA while the Aimpoint dot stays 2 MOA.

I had an Aimpoint T1 for a long time and really liked it. Just put an ACOG on my POF and love it! Dead on for close or long range engagements. Pricey, but worth it.

i have and use tr24 1-4x24 with green dot for 3 gun and love it. that dot gets you on target so quick. but frankly if i do any more matches that go out to 300 or more, think i will use my 2.5-10x56 aimpoint also with green dot, my eyes just aren't good enough. and with the dot, even at 2.5x, can still bang the close targets pretty easily.
