    Thinking about upgrading my AR red dot sight to the H-1 in 2 moa. Thoughts from folks with experience with this optic are much appreciated.

    What red dot are you using currently? I have a Primary Arms and an H1 (4moa). Both are equally rugged and feel of similar high quality. Both have proven reliable. The H1's dot is slightly fuzzy/not as crisply defined as the PA. I kinda regret paying $500 for the Aimpoint. I could buy FIVE primary arms for that price.

    Until the PA breaks, if it ever does. Then I don't regret paying $500 for the Aimpoint. :D

    Have you looked at Vortex?

    I currently have an Aimpoint Comp C3, the smaller profile of the H-1 is appealing. I only one one AR and figure you can't go wrong with an Aimpoint.

    like was said if money isnt an object aimpoint makes hands down the best red dots.

    Well, the difference is for defensive use. My 1st H1 battery lasted 3 years always on (positions 8 and 9), I'm on the second battery now. To have a rugged dot sight that is always on when you pick it up is a very valuable thing for a defensive rifle.

    For the .22 AR I'm building and for range only type rifles, I'll get the budget dots.

    im with strambo. My home defense guns have aimpoints or acogs. I dont want to fool with turning on a sight when under the stress of a home invation. With an aimpoint they can be left on. Batterys last for years but i tend to change mine on newyears with the smoke detectors just for peace of mind. Another adavantage is there ruggedness. I once watched a deal on youtube where a couple guns had micros mounted on ars. they took them off and skipped them across a concreat parking lot to each other then then skipped them back and mounted them back on there guns and they still held zero. Try that with a buget dot sight and youd be picking parts off the ground. Sure the average gun doesnt throw his sight on concrete but its good to know that if your gun gets knocked over your sight can take it. Like strabo too im not going to spend 500 bucks on a sight for a 22. My 22 ar wears a vortex strikefire and my mark III that will wear my suppressor when uncle sam finally approves it will wear a vortex sparc. There a good rugged sight. Maybe not quite as rugged as an aimpoint and battery life isnt as good but there plenty good enough for causual work.

    Aimpoint is good kit. I had a T1 on my AKs when I ran those and Eotech XPS on my ARs because I prefer the reticle over the 4MOA LED dot. I think the whole "always on" gimmick is grossly exaggerated, but either way, all Aimpoints are G2G. Also, check the Aimpoint PRO for a great rugged optic on a more budget friendly price.
