New Aimpoint

Well, new to me.

You’ll recall my Deathmatch in which I called the battle between the EOTech and Aimpoint for the EOTech. Well, Aimpoint has a new one that addresses some of the issues I had with it: The Aimpoint Comp M4. This one comes with an integral mount (which functions better and saves you the cost of a quality $150 mount). And it is now submersible to 150M, not that that would ever come up but it is cool.

The battery lasts for over eight years. A huge advantage over the EOTech.

It’s still spendy compared to the EOTech. The Aimpoint comes in at just shy of $800.

    For $800, it better cook dinner and clean up afterwards.

    Otherwise, that’s just overpriced. At least for my needs.

    Get a Tacpoint.

    It’s pretty sexy, has a built in killflash, and I like the new slick mount. Retail is more like $700. With an 8 year life, it’d save you quite a bit over the next 8 years on AA batteries compared to the EOThingy.

    $800 for a sight? Seriously, I must live a separate life.

  5. SayUncle Says:

    But, dude, it’s tacticool!!!!

  6. DirtCrashr Says:

    If I submersed to a depth of 150M I wouldn’t need either anymore…
    Aren’t scopes supposed to cost as much as the rifle or else you’re a dumbass cheapskate? That’s what I keep reading in Teh GunMagazeens – but I don’t know nuthin’ about hunting – never done it.

  7. Robb Allen Says:

    ColtCCO, that’s still not worth it. I just picked up 16AA batteries for $7.

    Let’s say you go through one set a month, requiring 24 batteries a year for 8 years.

    192 batteries over 8 years = 12 packs of 16. 12 x $7 = $84.

    The cool thing about the Aimpoints is that as per the manufacturer’s recommendation you leave them on the NVD setting. You never turn them off, so you never have to turn them on. They’re like iron sights that way – just pick up the gun and shoot without fiddling with a power button. That’s pretty darned appealing.

    ‘Cept in 8 years and 1 day when you happen to need it. 😉

  10. Les Jones Says:

    I’ll make a habit of changing the batteries every leap year. 🙂

  11. SayUncle Says:

    $8 bills is a bit much when you can get another aimpoint for $4bills and a mount for $1 bill.

  12. Gun Blobber Says:

    $5 bills is a bit much when you can get this for $40 – mounts included! 😀 Mailed to your home direct from Commie China! 😀

    Actually, i did buy one of those recently, more as an experiment than anything else. I’ve got a Tapco T6 stock on one of my SKS’s, and it’s got that gas tube handguard rail… I wanted to see if something mounted there could ever hold a zero. This was about the cheapest thing I could find. I will report on its workingness whenever I get around to testing it. 😀

    like any new piece of gadgetry, this will fall in price as the months go on… hell the first Intel Core 2 Duos came out with a retail price well above $1200… now you can get em for $250… and thats in less than 2 years… i suspect that these will be available for under $500 in less than a year

  14. Linoge Says:

    Bleh. At that price, I may as well get a Trijicon (sp?) and call it even. Either way, considering I am not really concerned about hitting things hundreds of yards away (or even a hundred yards away, given ranges in my area), I think I will stick wtih my $30 POS.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
