Son's in Afghanistan with an M4. They issued them Aimpoints that were designed for machine guns. He was told he had to have strictly consistent cheek weld/head position and make sure the dot was centered in the field of view for distances of 50 yds or less, but that past 50 yds it didn't matter. Doesn't make sense to me, and kind of defeats part of the point for CQB optics on an M4. Not familiar with the MG models. What am I missing here?

Their website and anything I have ever heard says that where the dot is is where your point of impact will be.
The difference between Aimpoint’s solution…
Regardless of where you position your eye, the reflection of the LED is always parallel with the sight’s optical axis, thanks to the design of the double lens and its light refraction property. The points of aim and impact always coincide.

I agree with Deuce... the Aimpoint is parallax free.  there is something being lost in translation...
 
I experimented with this sight on my tour in Iraq... the comment has no meaning without a lot of additional information.

That's what I thought, but I didn't know if there was something different about the machine gun model.

I'll let him know.

Machine gun model is a bit ruggedized and has a BDC set for the M2 machine gun...
