So like allot of people into red dot type optics i too fall into a category of people that are usually either aimpoint or eotech fans. Ive been an eotech guy for years but wanted to try an aimpoint out for a newer rifle id purchased and so figured heres the chance. The aimpoint pro had good reviews in magazines so when it was on sale i didnt hesitate . It seemed a good deal seeing as it had scope covers and a mount . The sight is ready to go out of the box and as im not super impressed it was of good quality and value . Mu personal gripes were the 2 moa dot and the annoying halo effect at high settings . I was told on the highest setting the halo effect wasnt really visible but i determined that to be false . Sure it was diminished in its brighness but still noticeable. Now dont get me wrong i dont hate this sight i just like eotechs better. Still. I also wish i had an option of a 4moa dot . The rifle i mounted it on was a sig 556r so i wasnt considering it for long distance precision shooting . I just picked up a scar so maybe the two will pair up better. Regardless if your already a red dot fan youll probably love this optic or the comp ml3 which i feel would have been better for me having the option for a 4moa dot and sacrificing the night vision capabilities. I just didnt want to pay more and have to drop another 80 or so dollars on a mount. Sorry if this review was all over the place . wrap up . Quality product if the halo effect doesnt bother you and your looking for a more precision size dot. Happy shooting.
Pros: complete package for a good price.
Cons: halo effect at higher settings
