I've always been a variable-optic guy. I've had Aimpoints intermixed in the last 12+ years. Visually, the Comp M3 and M4 looked the best. Some years ago, I started to develop astigmatism; this was about the time the Micro started making its debut. I did OK with the Micro's for a while (even the "improved" T2's) but ultimately sold those off and went exclusively to the S&B Short Dot. Since then, we've had PRO's which are more or less Comp M3's and they do OK. I recently gave the M5 a...
I did a class and one of the other students was in the group these were purportedly made for. He had just gotten it prior to the class and I was able to check it out, to my eyes it looked just like my T-1 (same thing with the T-2’s I’ve looked through so this doesn’t really mean much). On TD2 (RB1 vehicle tactics) the on/brightens knob had broken and was just spinning (optic still worked fine). Sample of 1...
All my carbines that have red dots have them now (one has a 1-6 so I can give that a shot.) At FOP last year, I had a T2, but that along with the rifle it was on went to my sister earlier this year. Comp M5 is what I would go with if I were looking for a red dot, and either a LaRue or Geissele mount.
Some interesting thoughts by the guy behind Scalarworks: Source: https://www.m4carbine.net/show...47-Aimpoint-Comp-M5/ I personally like my CompM5 more than my T-2, the battery box being up high definitely makes it feel like I have slightly better FOV. To me, both the T-2 and the CompM5 have dots that look much better than the 2 MOA T-1, particularly under a magnifier.
No, I personally use a GDI MT6-OSM. I've heard some folks say that the older generation of Scalarworks tends to move under recoil. If I were starting from scratch, I'd probably go with a Spuhr these days, but I think the Scalarworks, from what others have said, is still a great lightweight choice.
When you consider the CompM5, think of it as a miniaturized CompM4 from the durability standpoint with the footprint of a Micro. The optics packages on the -2 Micros and the CompM5 are also optimized for use with a magnifier and to address dot distortion that those with astigmatic eyes may experience. It's an astounding quality and performing RDS. Let me know if I can help any of you with any other Aimpoint questions.
