An optic left on has one less step in the manual of arms to get ready......

Online you can get 12 surefires for $25 shipped. Bout $2.08 each, hardly what I call expensive.

Yes they are cheap. So to me its funny IF people choose Aimpoint for the battery life reason. IMO

It's not the cost of replacing batteries it's being able to leave it on and knowing you're gtl, i mean gtg

A lot of people believe Aimpoint to be much more rugged as well. Plus EoTech had some issues with batteries bleeding off.

I forget to turn optics off quite a bit. The xps turns itself off the Aimpoints just keep ticking. The Eo went close to three years on one battery. I imagine that's good enough for most of us.

M4's m3's and m3ls own the industry for good reason...Like I said best on the market... eo tech is just an affordable option but it seems worth it to go aimpoint for a go to war option. The first lesson learned in the world of firearms is you get what you pay for... Great response guys, This is a great thread keep it up!

I have the M2 with the 3X multiplier on a Samson quick flip base. Although this system is a bit long when mounted, I get the best of a rapid acquisition system for up close and personal plus a red dot that is good for 200+ yard work. In reality I normally keep the 3X swung out to the side unless I'm shooting 100 yard+. Expensive? Kind of. But considering that my LMT is one of my top defensive choices for home and family, cost is less of an issue. Now if Aimpoint just came up with a nightvision attachment you could swing in and out of line,.............
