Aimpoint Micro

What red dot optic should I mount on my AR-15?

I'm looking at a Aimpoint micro T-1 or a Eotech 552. I use my AR-15 for Hunting, Target shooting, and home defense. I plan on purchasing a Larue mount for whatever optic I go with.

I have had an EoTech in the past, and now I only run Aimpoints.

The battery life is better in the Aimpoints (over five years while "on"). the EoTechs are harder to adjust the brightness with and without a BUIS mounted and there has been reports of battery failure in various EoTech models. EoTechs have an automatic shut-off (something like after 8 hours) while Aimpoints don't because they will run for years with the sight "on".

If you want a very light gun then go with the T1, but if you think that more field of view would be an advantage than get the M4 or M3 model.

Good choice going with the LaRue mounts, they are the best in the business.
