  1. I bought a Sig 556 a couple a months ago and I have been saving up to buy a quality optic to mount on my gun for Christmas/birthday(both are in December). I have decided on either a TA31DOC: 4x32 Trijicon ACOG Dual Illuminated Red Crosshair Reticle with 7.0 MOA Docter Optic. The other choice would be a CompM4 or CompM4s with a Aimpoint 3x Magnifier with the aimpoint twistmount. I would like someone opinion and if they prefer having the M4S and the low battery compartment. I have read a lot of reviews and researched a fair amount so I am pretty set on one of these optics. My gun with mainly be used for target practice, also some hunting. Hopefully next summer I will be able to take the Basic Carbine Class offered from FIREARMZ - Firearms Training and Defense in Carrollton, GA. I wanted to get the opinion of someone more knowledgeable then me to give me their opinion on these optics. Do you prefer one over the other? If anyone has experience with one, or both please offer me advice. I would like to get the feel of an AR with one of these mounted, maybe possibly even shoot it . If anyone is near the northeast Georgia area and wouldn’t mind me taking a lookup at their setup let me know. They both weigh in at around the same, the ACOG is 15.10 oz without the Docter sight and the aimpoint with the 3x mag is about 19 oz. The thing I like most about these setups is the ability transition quickly from close quarters to something that require a little more magnification. The only main issue I have with the ACOG is that I believe having the red dot sight on top on the scope may make it difficult or uncomfortable to shoot. Price wise, best case for the ACOG is about $1400 and for the aimpoint setup is about $1200. Any help, advice or information would be greatly appreciated and may help tip the scale in favor of one of this scopes.
  2. How much would you pay for one the is 18 months old and is in good to excellent condition?

    Aimpoint compm4 $720 sale/trade

    For sale is a brand new compm4 I am asking $720 but I am willing to trade for a Trijicon ACOG TA01NSN. -the latest version of the US Army's M68 CCO (Close-Combat Optic), continuing a legacy that Aimpoint has maintained since 1997. The Aimpoint CompM4 is the finest sight that Aimpoint has ever produced. Improvements include increased energy efficiency that provides over 8 years of continuous use from a single AA battery! The Aimpoint CompM4 incorporates an integral mount that eliminates the need for a separate ring, and can be customized with vertical and forward spacers to fit a variety of systems This special edition kit includes the following: * Anti-reflection Device * Spacer * QRPII Quick Detach Picatinny Rail Mount * Military Style Rubber Covers * Battery The performance of the Aimpoint CompM4 is optimized for use with all generations of night vision devices (NVDs), but is especially suited for 3rd generation night vision technology. Aimpoint's unique band-pass coating on the front lens reflects select frequencies of red light at near 100% efficiency in order to give the highest possible dot brightness with the smallest amount of energy while transmitting nearly 100% of light in the Infrared and near-infrared part of the spectrum to provide the clearest, brightest image possible when used with a 3rd generation NVD. With 7 NVD-compatible brightness settings and 9 Daylight settings including one extra-bright setting, the Aimpoint CompM4 is ready for duty 24/7. * Compatible with every generation of Night Vision Devices (NVD). * Super ACET technology allows up to 80,000 hours (over 8 years) of day-time operation on one AA battery. * 1X (non-magnifying) parallax free optic. * Internal voltage regulator allows the CompM4 to be used with any AA size battery. * 7 night vision compatible settings and 9 daylight settings. * Improved rotary switch will not suffer damage under normal use. * QRP2 mount has twice the clamping force of the original QRP, and the mounting knob is wider and shorter to improve operation, and lessen the chance of becoming snagged on other gear. * Mount base is "keyed" into the body of the sight to absorb recoil. * Mount base screws directly into the sight - no seprate sight ring is required. * 500,000 hours of use on NVD setting. * 2 MOA Dot for close combat and long distance engagement. * Matches perfectly with Aimpoint 3X magnifier * Unequalled light transmission. * Front lens opening is threaded for addition of killFlash® anti-reflective device. * anti-reflective device * Submersible to 150 feet. * Vertical spacer included. * Standardized as the US Army's new M68 CCO. * Improved adjustment caps are easier to remove, and are protected against impact. * Can be used with a carry handle adaptor
