I will accept the night purpose, but I would argue that for precision a red dot is slower than irons.And all the above at night as well.
Speed. Rapid target acquisition. both eyes open. Indoors or CQB applications.
Unless you are old with bad eye why use a crutch? You still need a good consistent cheek weld for any accuracy.
Aimpoint Red Dots, What's YOUR opinion?

. I have a ta11 acog that I really like. I’m sure the aim points are fine but I wanted something with magnification. That and i figured I already spent 3k buying the rifle why not spend another 1k and make it absolutely bad a..I had two for real legit Trijicon ACOGs.
My fav out of my optics is by far the acog. I also have a eotech and a vortex sparc ar. The eotech is my least favorite.
The first was an ECOS model with the little red dot riding piggy back on top of the main ACOG body.
I want to say that was right around $1,200.... new.
The other one I bought was used off the Brian Enos forums classifieds.
I want to say it was like $700 to $800...used.
The sad thing about it is that I never had a chance to try close in targets using the Bindon Aiming Concept (BAC) with both eyes open. I sold them off to pay off a credit card...figured a credit check would used for my background at my current job.
Anywhooo.... my point being is you could probably buy 2 maybe even 3 new Aimpoints for the price of one new ACOG.
I currently have an Elcan M145 that I have never mounted.
It is a weird set up with the scope adjustments built into the scope base.
It absolutely blows-my mind that the poster above had such bad luck with an Elcan Spectre model. Probably through MidwayUSA that is like a $2,500 scope.

I'm getting LOTS of good information and good ideas too! Looks like I've got more research to do.
I was also wondering if buying used optics is a good idea?
