Is the Compact ACOG even comparable to the Aimpoint?

I'm looking at the TA44SR-10 1.5x16mm - http://www.trijicon.com/user/parts/products1.cfm?PartID=714&back_row=0&categoryID=3

Different tools for different jobs.

An aimpoint has a wider field of view, a large dot, and 1x lens (without a magnifier).

I've got a T33-R8, which is a 3x with a BDC. It has a narrower field of view, but you can still hit the center of a paper plate @300 easily.

Both are built like tanks.

Aimpoint batteries last a long time, the fiber/tritium ACOGs need no batteries.

I'd say it's personal preference. But unless you were in close quarters urban combat in a war zone, the ACOG is much more flexible and capable. You can get a magnifier for an Aimpoint, but even the smaller dots are huge and less refined, IMO.

Edit: Then again, looking at the model you chose, an Aimpoint might be more of a bang for the buck, and it is a tool intended for the same/similar job, red dot and all.
