I have a new SA  m1a scout rifle and would like to put a forward mounted red dot on it.  I have experience with the Eotech on an AR and really like it but would like to try something different for the m1a.  This probably leads me to an Aimpoint.  Although this is a short(er) barreled version it is still a very potential long range rifle.  For this reason I am considering some slight magnification in the sight such as the 2x models offered by Aimpoint.  My questions are:
Does the magnification distort the non-parallex capabilities of the dot?
Does it appear as if you are looking through a tube ? (as I have read)
Would you consider a 1x reflex type over the magnified version and why? (consider the rifle)
Does anyone have  a 2x and what do you think?
In general what model Aimpoint would you recommend?
I have looked at an ACOG but I don't believe they are extended eye relief scopes.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I would get the 2MOA CompC3
my bud has one on his M1a scout and I have used one on a Marlin guide gun and of course and AR

the 2x versions from everything I have heard have a tunnel vision effect

2Moa is the right thing to get.  I really  like the Comp M4 as it runs on AA batteries. You will not like the 2x models.  So long as you know trajectory or keep notes you can guess holdover and set your zero at 200 or 300.
