Pro has longer battery life smaller dot and nv setting.

I can't stand larue mounts. If you have em they will shoot loose over time and lose their ability to return zero. I use adm mounts muuuuuuuch better http://www.americandefensemanufacturing.com/browse/category/opticmounts/aimpointmounts/

2moa dot will be more precise the 4 moa dot will be easier to see in cqb.

I'm not a fan of red dot sights on rifles they only do one thing well. If that one thing is cqb then your good to go.

I like a really good 1-4x scope. My favorite is the trijicon tr24 at its 1x setting it outperforms a rds at 4x it serves as a very good optic for longer ranges. Its got target style turrets for getting out past 300yards. The triangle of the tr24 serves as a good enough bdc for 1-300 yards before you need to start dialing range settings.

I got a rds aimpoint t1 for the wife who really likes it. She uses it on her ar15 and srm1216. She doesn't shoot her ar15 past 100 yards so it works great for her. She has tried it at further distance but it doesn't work well for her.

She is a good enough shot to be consistant moa or a scootch above moa shooter at 500 yards with her savage 10fcpsr.

Just don't get one thinking its going to a do it all optic. They are pretty limited

then the diff for you will be dot size if your not going to shoot past 100 with it go for a bigger dot you will pick it up faster. the smaller dot is very hard to see in very bright light or against green backgrounds.

I have an H1 on my Spikes with a 1/3 co-witness and love it. Also have an H1 on my M1 Carbine. Have a Trijicon Accupoint 1 - 4 on my M&P 10.
