    C-More, EOTech, Aimpoint, compared.

    My brother and I went to the range yesteday to compare some dot sights. Well... we didn't go meaning to do a comparison it just kind of worked out that way. Sorry... no pics.

    I'm right handed and left eye dominant. I like the EOTech 512 best because it's easy for me to use with both eyes open. The small center dot (1MOA) helps my accuracy for longer shots. The ring around the dot makes it easy to aquire so I don't have to search for the small dot. The ring is also helpfull in judging how much hold over to use. And it uses easy to find AA batteries. I don't care for the placement of the on/off controls though, it can be a little ackward to set brightness if you have a flip up rear BUIS. Make sure to get the Rev. F, it has rubber covered controls. $350.00 is a good price. http://www.mountsplus.com/miva/merch...CH/EOT-512-A65

    The Aimpoint M2x2 is good also though. The on/off control is better. It has 2x magnification and is NV compatible. It is also easy to use with both eyes open and I don't really notice the 2x unless I close one eye then it is like "instant zoom", pretty cool really. If it had a ring around the dot like the EOTech it would probably be my favorite. But with the smaller FOV I understand why they didn't put a ring around the dot. For some reason my eyes make the small 2MOA dot look like a small "starburst" which hurts my accuracy a little. The battery is a 3 volt lithium 1/3N and not as easy to find as AA batteries, but I can buy an extended battery cap that would let me put 2 batteries in at a time. It is more expensive than an EOtech 512 though. I got lucky and found this one on ebay at a good price, it's not a ML2, it's a M2. $400.00+ for the 1X, $500.00+ for the 2X. http://www.aimpoint.com/products/aim...impoint_compm2

    The C-More Railway is a pretty cool sight too. NV compatible and the dot doesn't "starburst" on me like the others do which is nice. You can change out the diode to change the size of the dot to your liking. You can buy 2MOA to 16MOA diodes and swap them out, that is a very cool feature. http://www.cmore.com/diode.html But it is a little fragile looking and the brightness control makes me have to put my off hand in front of the dot to adjust it. And I wish the sight adjustment screws had "clicks" instead of just a smooth turn to them. It uses a 3 volt lithium 1/3N battery. It's a little over priced in my opinion, but still a good sight, I'm glad I bought it. About $270.00.

    I don't know if there is a way to set the eotech any lower on the PS90 - bbut to be honest - I am fine with it. By using my laser as a guide for up close shots - I know that if I am in my house and had to fire the PS90 - the bullet will hit at the bottom of the large circle reticle.

    But, in answer to your question - the center is approx 4.75-5 inches above

    I have the EOTech 512A on my PS90 and I don't find any difficulty in getting a good cheek to stock fit. Of course, when I was shooting a M16, I always had difficulty getting a good cheek to stock fit and alway had to scoot down for good sighting. Maybe its because I am tall and have the the MPF Low Profile rail under the EOTech. Or maybe its just because I am a fat head - who knows.

    I find my setup to be completly satisfactory but I may change my mind once I get to shoot the rifle.

    i bought a 553 to go on my PS90. While my PS is away getting worked on, i have been toying around with it on my new .45 cal AR. Ive had many different style optics over the years, but i gotta say this is one of my favorites!

    I really have no experience with a C-More sight - sorry to hear about the issues with it - but yea, the larger the dot, the harder it is to use at longer distances.

    Great post!

    Thanks for the reviews, I am been thinking about a good sight, and your report is appreciated

    I need to find someone to trade me a Good Sight for a vest or two, cause those sights are expensive

    hint, hint LOL

    Vestguy,

    I am currently doing another flat top AR build, an SKS carbine, and I also have a Mosin M44 waiting for attention. It seems that everytime I go to the range I end up moving sights and scopes around trying to decide what I want all the final configurations to be.

    By the time I get things moved around where I am satisfied the right sight is on the right gun I may have a trade to work with you.

    The diode on the C-More is replaceable with a variety of moa sizes. If you want a smaller dot, just install one of the smaller diodes. AFAIK, they are user replaceable, and although replaceable, they are built in such a way that the diode is captured and cannot fall out.

    Wow - I didn't know that.
