I'll let someone who has used the non-fiber optic models respond to this, since I have used only the dual-illumination model.

Bindon Aiming Concept is available only with the fiber optic option.

For further insight on this, and other features, click on the appropriate link on this site:

back on topic:
Only thing limiting the ACOGs are variable magnifications but nowadays Trijicon has variable scopes, research before you buy.
I also have a Trijicon AccuPoint 3-9x40 w/ green mil-dot reticle scope on my hunting 6.8SPC AR-15, and it is a very nice variable power scope with tritium reticle - at well under the price of an ACOG. They can be had at around $600 delivered to your door.

I love the ACOG 4x32. I use the USMC version which can be bought. I don't own it, the Marine Corps just uses them. I fired with it for the 1st time on our range and raised my score from 311 expert to 335 expert with a max score of 350. This I shot my zero at the 100yrd, fired sitting, kneeling, standing at the 200yrd; sitting and prone at the 300yrd; and prone at the 500yrd. Also they can really take a beating. I have seen these ACOGs go threw hell and back. Mine was beat to hell and still fired true. Also
The fiber optic really make a diifferance, but in bright light it is imperative that you take a piece of black duct tape and cover 6/8 of that fiber optic, or the cheveron will be to bright and creat a glowing haze around it which will make it appear bigger, this will make a hell of a differance between 100,200, and 300 yrds. Also be careful with adjustments, every 3 clicks is 1 inch, you also must smack it after making an adjustment. Overall very accurate and very quick. I even used it in my CQ box drills failure to Stop and all that at 25 yrds. Also always make sure 1 1/2 inch eye relief. Overall I give it 4 1/2 stars. And that's only cause I popped myself in the eye with it while firing.

Here is my range Zero and qual with limited time to shot and no adjustments from the 200 all the way to the 500 yrd with the ACOG

I have a TA-01 on my AR. It is the older model, no duel illumination. I really like it.

Eye relief is very short which takes getting used to, but some of the other models are better in that reguard.

I'm just deciding if I need it because I may switch to an Aimpoint T-1 based on it's overall intended use.

I'm 5ft 5in, and my ACOG was set at T4 if I'm not mistaken. That was with an M16A4 full butstock. It also helped relieve scope shadow. It was very comfortable for me. I usually rest my nose at the end of the charging handle and that gives me proper eye relief.
