It is hard to choose. I have never owned an Acog and I think I am a little close to purchasing one. Especially the Eotech 553 with the raise mount it comes with.
This is my first rifle for personal use. This may also be a very interesting question - Do you think either the Acog, or Eotech is more ideal for this build?
Also, I just need to have one of the optics being right above the receiver. It is just my personal preference so far.. Which is why I need help!
Different animals. The ACOG is a 4x scope and not really suitable (it can be used but it's not made for it) close quarters use. For home defense an EOTECH or Aimpoint is a better choice. If you like Trijicon take a look at the TriPower.
I don't like cowitnessing irons and optics so I have mine on a GG&G 1/2" riser that extends a bit in front of the upper receiver. Very fast setup (SBR in the middle). GG&G rear sight folds neatly out of the way.
