red is harder to see against a green background and in very low light than green is. ill take some pics later of the strikefire and its red/green against various backgrounds
Cool. Sounds like you've got 'er squared away, then.

Über jealous, I want an ACOG something fierce. I settled with an EOTech instead, wouldn't mind getting rid of it to pick up an ACOG though. Time to save some pennies and figure out what I want more I suppose. Looks great regardless man, enjoy

If you're just wanting to take a pic of the ACOG reticle (I think that's how I understood ya), hold a flashlight beam on the fiber optic, it'll glow like the sun.
