I have a question about two Eotech optics. The 553 and the 556. What are the differences between the two optics and advantages that one has over the other etc. I've already looked at Aimpoint and I prefer the CQB advantage of the Eotech than the Aimpoint as far as the field of view goes. Well, I will appreciate any info you guys can provide me with! Thanks, guys.

calrad97, what is your intended use for this sight?  What are you going to put it on and what kind of shooting will you be doing?

Caleb, essentially they are close to the same thing.
 
They both have the 65 MOA ring with the 1 MOA dot. They both use the same battery, they are both the same color. There is not much of a differece.
 
However the 556 does not have the ARMS QD throwlevers like the 553 does.
 
Personally, I prefer Aimpoint for close range and CQB. I do not see the advantage of one over the other, with the exception of battery life. Aimpoint is far more superior in that regard.
 
I would also like to know the answer for Kickboxer's questions that he address.
