I finally saved up the money to buy a new red dot for my home protection 556. I have it down to two as the thread title indicates. Please don’t try and introduce another choice into the mix here.
The Holosun 515GM/CM is a micro but it performs flawlessly. John L from Warrior Poet loves it to death! It is however a micro. The Aimpoint Pro has a much larger field of view, BUT it doesn’t have the “ring of death” option like the Holosun does. This is NOT ever going to be a carry gun so the extra weight on the Aimpoint is a non factor.
I guess the choice is a larger FOV, or the “ring of death” option for the dot. Both have batteries that last way longer than I need between battery swaps.
Lets say they are both FREE, which would you want, and again no others please. Why?
