Good for a light pistol

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WI Written on June 2, 2013
I purchased this to mount to a Browning Buckmark for a 22 bullseye league and later may try it on a Ruger Super Redhawk in 44 mag for deer hunting. It worked very well for this purpose. The red-dot added noticeable weight to the pistol, but since the pistol was light to begin with it wasnt an issue (may be a different story for the heavy revolver). If you want to mount it to a heavier pistol or if weigh is a concern, Aimpoint makes a micro version that is much lighter and may be worth considering. I cant imagine the extra weight would be an issue mounted to a rifle or shotgun. I like this red-dot over other ones Ive used because parallax isnt a problem with Aimpoint. A slight shift of you head wont significantly change the point of impact (I have not tested this extensively to confirm Aimpoints claim of zero parallax, but just from using it in normal target shooting situations, parallax does not seem to be a problem). The long battery life is a plus too. Ive seen other people at the range that had to leave the range without firing a shot because the last time they used their pistol, they left their red-dots on. This could be solved by having extra batteries in the case, though. Still, the 5 year battery life is nice. I have the 2 MOA model which is great for bullseye, but if youre shooting a sport with multiple targets or going to use it for hunting, I think the 4 MOA dot would be quicker to find in the sight and get on target. Overall, a very high quality red-dot...

Aimpoint Comp C3 2 MOA

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on September 18, 2012
Everyone seems to always get an aftermarket mount for their Aimpoint, so I had no idea that this would come with a 30mm ring. Pleasant surprise. Also, this was my first Aimpoint. I've acquired more since then.
Pros: This sight is very easy to use with both eyes open.
Cons: The dot may flare in your vision, depending on your eyes....

Aimpoint Comp C3 2 MOA Red Dot Scope 11421

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on June 21, 2012
I bought this red dot sight for my rifle and have experienced no problems in nearly 1,000 rounds of shooting. I bought this sight because I wanted the best value Aimpoint optic. With the right mount, this sight can be used on almost any type of firearm. Buy this Aimpoint model if you just want the best red dot sight but don't need night vision or deep water submersion capability.
Pros: This sight is very easy to use.
Cons: I did not know this comes with its own mount....

Aimpoint Comp C3

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on June 6, 2012
I bought this red dot sight for my rifle, and I have experienced no problems in nearly 1,000 rounds of shooting. I bought this model because I wanted an Aimpoint optic but, as a competitive shooter, I have no need for deep-water submersion. This sight is unquestionably durable, light-weight, and it is compatible with many different mounting options. The appropriate brightness setting for nighttime may be too low for daylight, and, conversely, the appropriate daylight brightness setting may be too bright for the night, but this is easily adjusted with the knob on the sight. It has a distinct click for each setting transition.
Pros: made in Sweden
Cons: none!...
Would recommend: Yes

It's the best!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, IA Written on October 3, 2011
The dot gets very bright, but most of the time I run it on 6 or 7 out of 10. Precise dot, shot 1/2 size silhouettes out at 200 yards no problem. The adjustments are consistent and it holds zero though extensive firing.
Pros: Long battery life, durability
Cons: No night vision mode, crummy lense covers...

Aimpoint Comp C3 2 MOA Red Dot Scope

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on March 27, 2011
The optics have a defect. It looks like frost creeping up from the bottom of the lens, not that big of a problem but when your paying this kind of money for top of the line gear it's not good.
Pros: crisp dot, solid construction
Cons: dot is hardly visible until four clicks in, defect in glass....

Rock-solid red dot

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on March 14, 2011
After debating for weeks on whether to get an Aimpoint versus a less costly one from another brand, I went with the Aimpoint. The gamble of getting another brand, but ending up with a unit that does hold zero or goes out intermittently (see the various reviews across the internet on other brands) was just not worth the savings. Besides, I wanted this to be my first and last red dot. I have to say, it does not disappoint.

First, keep in mind that these sights appear to be back ordered across the country (as of early 2011), and I waited a few weeks before it was shipped out. Optics Planet kept me well updated.

The sight comes with a brief manual, an aluminum low mount for Picatinny rails that has a single knurled locking knob (so can be contrued as a quick removal type to some degree). There is also a "bikini" type lens cap.

The battery installation was straight-forward. The intensity settings vary from almost indiscernable to so bright, that the dot washes out.

Incidentally, if your vision is not great, especially if you have astigmatism, the dot may appear to be less than round. (If you are not sure if it is your eyes or a faulty unit, try this: put a pin hole in a sheet of paper, and then look through the hole and then into the sight. If it now looks more like a dot, it's you eyes!)At first, setting things up indoors, I though that would be a problem. However, later on outdoors at the range, no problems at all.

Setting up was simple. I used the stock mount sin...

CompC3 is outstanding

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, WI Written on October 13, 2010
When it comes to a quality Aimpoint sight, you can't beat $400 dollars. This is the exact same thing as the CompM3 that I used in Iraq except for lacking Night Vision Settings.But I'm guessing you don't need NV capabilities, so buy this. I am 100% satisfied and it even came with a mount, which I wasn't expecting. The only thing I suggest is that you buy the flip covers for lens protection.
Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing...
