I've had an EOTech on an AR since 2004, and never had any trouble with it, but I've heard of the chips coming loose in others. The only problems I've seen were the battery boxes becoming defective, but replacing has fixed the problem.

I decided to go with a Leupold Mark AR scope instead of a red dot on my new AR, but may still take a look at a red dot again. The first Aimpoints I played with in the early 2000s didn't seem to hold zero like I thought they should, but the newer ones I've seen coming to the range are top notch.

I just got a PRO from Optics Planet. I love the sight. It's extremely nice, tough, accurate, etc.. What more can you ask for?

I have not had the chance to zero mine yet and was hoping somebody here could tell me how that went for them? Where you on paper on the first shot and did you zero at 25 yards?

Once it's zeroed was it rock solid accurate afterwards and did you zero the flip ups for the same yardage too right?

Lots of variables in zero. Are you running lower 1/3 cowitness, absolute cowitness, etc?

I have always believed in setting up on the irons and adjusting the dot to the irons and then fine-tuning with the dot alone. Same zero as the irons, which for me is the IBZ 50yd/200m zero.

I have lower 1/3 co witness, are you saying that the red dot is physically moved to align to front sight by adjusting knobs

What distance you zero at and how you co-witness depends primarily, IMHO, on your mission, your experience, and your weapon configuration.

In regards to the PRO specifically, my zero experience was great. On paper 1st round, shooting 1" groupings at 25yds within 8-10 rounds. No notable variation since, even with R&R. Very easy to zero and maintain. As everyone else has said, it's tough to beat this optic for the price.

IIRC, the mount that comes with the PRO is slightly lower than absolute cowitness FWIW

My current Patrol Rifle optic is the Eotech XPS 3-0. Best optic I've ever had for my patrol rifle. I added a 3x FTS optic and the combination rocks.

All our Bushmasters M4s (about 800 or so nationwide) are fitted with Aimpoint Comp M4s sights now.

Everyone loves them and I've not heard anyone want to go back to irons again.

I took three cops, who had never used them before, for their firearms recert yesterday and there were no issues at all.

They just picked up the M4s and hit the middle of the targets every time. No introduction lesson to the sight, just told them "put the red dot on the target".

So simple.

Our Firearms Training Sergeant found enough money in the budget to get 50 Aimpoint Micro T-1s and 50 Troy Industries BUIS. A very nice late Christmas gift.

I just got mine last week along with 5 others and after zeroing them did our qual.
