Those are very cool..

I been debating getting one for a while but have held off since I am not sure I want to make my setup needlessly complex.

But you are right it does seem to offer the best of both worlds....

Even though I am a bit of a gear hound I have some big expenses coming up for my house so I will keep gun expenses to under a certain amount per month

I have been looking for a forward mounted optic for my Mini, but can't spend the $1500 plus that the ACOG with dot costs. So am probably gonna get an Aimpoint Patrol, although the Leupold VXR 1.5-5x Scout w/ Fire Dot for $200 more is tempting. I have the Leupold Mark AR 1.5-4x fire dot on my AR and really like it, lighted dot at 1.5x for close up, and 4x for longer range. It was "only" $400, but not long eye relief, so it wouldn't work on my Scout mount.
I will look up some of the systems you mention

I have one of the fiber optic ACOGs and I love it. I think it would still be a great scope without the daytime illumination, but it may be a bit slower on to target. IMO the NSN reticle is a bit busy looking, I like my bright GREEN chevron

I own 4 the TA01, NSN, TA31F and the TA31RCOM4. The NSN is my least favorite and the TA31F my favorite, Even though the RCOM4 also has the fiber optic the additional cost over the TA31F is not worth it for the additional horizontal stadia lines.
