Aimpoint vs EOTech: Which is Better?

Sports,Online Shopping,Recreation & Leisure
Red dots can be found floating above a huge number of guns throughout the military, law enforcement, competition and hobbyist shooter communities these days, and two manufacturers dominate the high quality end of this market- Aimpoint, and EOTech. The reason Aimpoints and EOTechs are compared so often to each other is because they have both built a reputation of being high-quality, high-performance sights.

They are two of the most recognizable brand names in optics and have large, dedicated user bases that include military, law enforcement, and civilian shooters who swear by their products. Their popularity comes from users who have seen their accuracy, speed, and consistency improve with one equipped.

At the most basic level, what they have in common is being weapons mounted electronic sights that provide shooters an illuminated reticle to target with. They are compact, light weight, and durable. However, there are a handful of key features that differentiate them from each other.

Specs like size, weight, and dimensions are important to compare between sights for considering how it will work and fit with your particular setup. Both of these sights are mountable to Weaver or Picatinny rails, making them compatible with all modern day assault and battle rifles. However, Aimpoints will need a specific mount and riser for each one, which is sold separately. There are a number of different mount manufacturers that vary in quality and price.

Aimpoint red dot sights have a tube style optical configuration, consisting of a cylindrical housing with front and rear lens objective lens. EOTechs have an open style optical configuration, which is simply a flat rectangular objective window surrounded by a protective housing. The rectangle shape of the EOTech objective is unique to their brand, and something shooters who have only dealt with cylindrical scopes. This shape provides better field of view and sight picture than circular objectives.

Reticle pattern can make a big difference in accuracy of shots and target acquisition speed, especially when dealing with non-magnified optics. The Aimpoint PRO has the traditional pattern that is found in most reflex sights, simply a centered dot reticle. At 2 MOA, this reticle provides a small aim point that allows for accurate shot placement, and limited bullet spread out to a couple hundred yards.

On the other hand, EOTech red dot sights are well known for their unique reticle pattern that you won’t find anywhere else. It is comprised of a 65 MOA ring surrounding a 1 MOA centered dot reticle. The ring makes for quick target acquisition because it is very easy to catch with your eyes as the gun is being brought into the sight line. At 15 yards the ring covers 10 inches in diameter, a solid area of the average human target, making it ideal for CQC situations. As far as reticles go we have to say EOTechs’ are the favorite. They can not only reproduce the Aimpoint’s capabilities, but take it further with the additional 65 MOA ring.

In addition to these there are the Trijicon red dot sights which are nice because most models do not require batteries. They work with fibre optics and in low light they use a type of radioactive material that glows in the dark. Their only disadvantage is that they are very expensive.
