    EoTech Died/Need Recommendation

    Loved my EoTech. It ate batteries like Scooby Snacks, but that holographic sight was very nice. Now I am looking for something more reliable, at least something I don't have to worry about the batteries being dead on a monthly basis.

    What would you guys put on an AR-15 carbine? Aimpoint Pro perhaps?


    Yes, I know there is a lot to read here about RDS, but I do not have the time to research at the moment. I am going to see what may be the top two or three recommendations and then start researching with those in mind.


    Haven't been on PF with much frequency over the past year or so, but I still occasionally visit to see what is going on.

    Aimpoint PRO...I'm a bit biased, but I can go through the miseries of EOTech in vivid and personal detail. PM me on this if you decide to do that and before you spend your money.

    I really like my Aimpoint Comp M5.

    I've had a PRO and a T2 previously. I preferred the size/weight of the T2, but the brightness controls of the PRO. The Comp M5 combines the best of both.

    If you liked the reticle, the new MRO HD is probably a better option.

    That is likely a nice sight, but at $650-700 it better be.

    I think I recall that reading this forum that returning a dead Eothingy to the mothership nets a decent discount on a new one....that said, I would use one of the competitors on a working gun. On a fun gun I would use the discount since I have a coule of old N battery Eos running around.

    I own 3 MRO's, so you could say I'm a fan. If you like the 68 MOA circle on the HD, I'd say go for it. Having owned Eotechs, I don't see the plus side to the "ring of death". YMMV, it's (very likely) possible I'm not nearly good enough to have an opinion of any weight.

    Trijicon MRO.
    Durable, long battery life and a field of view I like.

    What model EOTech? And unless they fixed it, the MRO has pretty bad parallax.
