Either would work well with your set-up. If you can afford the ACOG, by all means go with it. There's something to be said about not having to worry about batteries. I have Eotechs on a couple of mine, both in the "N" size and "AA" size batteries. I haven't really had any battery issues to date to speak of, but I'm pretty anal about taking batteries out of things that I know I won't be using for a while, and about keeping spares on hand. With the ACOG, you wouldn't have to worry about it.

I also like the magnification built-in on the ACOG, as opposed to the 3x magnifier that I have to mount if I want magnification on the Eotechs. The flip side of that would be...for close up work, I don't have to worry about the magnification putting things out of focus either, when I'm using the Eotech.

But, you can get the ACOG that has the built in red dot head's up display on the side, for close up work.

All it takes is....just a little more dough

Honestly Terry, the ACOG is a nice set of optics, but the reticle can get a little confusing until you get used to it. With the high price added in, there are better choices.

I'd look at 2 MOA Aimpoint COMP M3. They sell for about $500. They offer quicker target acquisition and with the 2 MOA dot, you're able to engage anything within the range of the AR platform.

Matt,

I'm just not a fan of the Aimpoint. A buddy has 3 AR's...one with an Aimpoint, one with an ACOG and one with an EOTech. I like the magnification of the ACOG and I'm not concerned about price. Maybe I'll have to do the same and buy three platforms...

If cash is no issue, then the ACOG is a great choice. Just buy a case of ammo to burn getting used to the reticle. Lemme' know how she handles, I'd like to put one on the M14 if I ever get the chance to order it before they're outlawed.
