Aimpoint Choice

Sorry guys but this is another one of those "which one" posts but I don't know where else to get an informed answer.

I have an Eotech XPS2 on my AR now but don't get optimal results in part because I wear corrective lenses. My eyes are also 69 years old :-)

As with others, the Eotech reticle pixelates and doubles sometimes worse than others. I wear progressive bifocals which I'm sure contributes to the issue. I find the Eotech works well for me shooting Steel Challenge with my .22 upper where speed is the driver, but doesn't do as well with the .223 upper at distance where the blurred centre dot affects my accuracy.

I'm very close to buying an Aimpoint for the .223 and will leave the Eotech on the .22.

The two models I'm considering are the Pro which pretty much comes complete for my purposes and the older CompC3 which would require an elevated QD mount. While I haven't been able to compare the two directly, the Pro seems bulkier to me which is why the CompC3 is on the list despite the additional cost of about $150.00. I emailed Aimpoint with my questions but got no response.

For those of you who can compare, please tell me if the extra cost of the CompC2 is warranted or if the Pro is the way to go.

The PRO is basically the exact same optic as the 2 MOA dot version of the CompM3, but is packaged with a QRP2 mount. The optic itself is no bulkier.

Either one has a longer battery life than the older CompM2.

I recently purchased the PRO and have been very pleased with it. I’m not sure if you’ve seen it or not, but just in case I went ahead and attached a comparison chart of the two.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
