    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.
