    Never said the Aimpoint couldn't be a better optic, just that it is not worth the extra cost. I have said my experience and those who have actually used them around me (fellow shooters who have started using them after seeing/trying mine). The Aimpoint isn't worth the extra $200 compared to the SPARCS we have used, for us. Mind you I do have a Nightforce and Vortex PST on other rifles. So I am not always budget conscious.

    Lastly ( :rolleyes: ) you have an infinity for assuming. I won't argue my experience anymore. Rounds on target, classes, and multiple examples are all I need. That extra $200 can go towards half a class or 750ish reloads.

    Vortex = HiPoint
    Aimpoint = Glock

    Horrible comparison I would say having owned all of them. To me it would be more like...

    SPARC = XD
    Aimpoint = XD-M

    Aimpoint Pro. Barring that, Vortex Sparc. I've dropped it from 5ft onto concrete and it still runs.

    Maybe or government both local and federal should stop wasting money on Eotech's, Aimpoints and Trijicon's. Don't they know that they could just spend $200 on a equally good Sparc?

    I would say buy the aimpoint pro, I bought the T-1 mico and a pro. I like the pro the best with the 2 MOA, it is parallax free, has NV and 3 year battery life. I'm 6'3'' and the pro seemed easier and faster for target Acquisition.

    Lots of good answers here, but far too much bickering. So, everyone out of the bunker and go get some fresh air.
