Bought my Vortex about 5 months ago. Same battery after countless range trips

Anyone have any experience with Meprolight 21? I'm also looking at the Aimpoint 34L. Thanks in advance.

Look up thread "Why so few bullpups". It has pics.

The Aimpoint will be more precise, but it uses batteries and is a little heavier than the M21. I have used both.

Not to open up a can of worms but I'd say the vortex strike fire is the closest you can get to a aimpoint for under 200 bucks. Do some research an be your own judge but I've been very happy with the strike fire.

This is 100 yard shooting yesterday in 4 below zero F with the Strikefire, no magnification. Same battery as when I bought it last summer. Looks nice on my AR too!

Thanks for the Vortex tip. I see Cabela's has it for $169. Worth a try at that price. I'm putting it on my a Tikka T3 Lite .308.

I'd like to see a picture of that when you have it mounted, if possible
