    Default anyone use an aimpoint/eotech on their g3 clone?

    mainly interested in how well it works, especially with a magnifier. if so, at what distance do you have it sighted in?

    I used one (aimpoint ML2-4moa dot) on my HK with a BT 21262 mount. worked great and sighted at 100yds it was awsome. used the A3 stock on it. I wouldn't hesitate to go with either for CQB.

    I have a 'AA' battery Eotech on my G3 and it works great. The rifles shoots what it was intented to be use as, a battle rifle, 100-300 yard man-sized targets.

    I save my magnified scope for my bolt rifles.

    You will be happy with either an Aimpoint or an Eotech red dot

    I have used the Eotech on my HK91, it worked great.
    The only problem is that with the B&T rail I was using there was not enough room to also mount a magnifier.

    I've got mine set up like this:



    It is the N battery version and I can advise anyone who is curious NOT to get it, the batteries just don't last. If I take it out for a day of hunting or a weekend at the range, I gotta change the batteries. There is room behind the sight for a magnifier, I just haven't gotten one yet. I can also see the irons through the base of the mount. The sight is a little high but it is actually pretty comfortable up there once you get used to it. I figure you should have your head up if you're using a dot anyways.

    ETA: It is zeroed @ 100 yds.

    As you can see from this pic of a aimpoint-type optic on a Claw Mount, it will sit it up rather high, but in my opinion, it's still not too high for my tastes, but an Eotech on a claw would be a little too high for me.

    Yeah man, I tell ya what, man, them dang ol’ HKs, man, talkin' bout SUH-WEET, man, dang ol' point and click, baby, just, just, dang ol' awesome, man.

    whats more important? Irons you can count on at 1,2,&300trds OR a non-magnified scope that can get knocked off zero so easily? answer is a 4x24 z-24 hendsoldt scope that was desingned to use irons and stay PUT at zeroe,and rugged also. I love mine it does what it was intended for. M.O.

    I can say that I have had my EoTech off of the weapon a few times and I've never had to re-zero it. As I said, the reflex is my head-up sight and when I need to take a long shot with a lot of time to do so I can still hunker down on the irons without taking off the dot. The system I have works for me the way I use it and since he asked questions specifically about a setup like mine, I gave him my pros and cons. The answer for you is a Z24, but that is not what he asked about.

    To answer the height question, my mount is the same height as the Hensoldt claws and I do not find it to be too high, YMMV.

    i considered a z-24 but i think for me a heads up sight will work better. i doubt i would have many 300m shots, even if i used the rifle for hunting. i am sure the aimpoints and eotechs are rugged and they afford the ability to use accessories like the magnifier and night vision.
