OK, I've used a lot of different optics over the years, though I'm by no means someone who shoots all the time or has a lot of experience.  Mostly I've used magnified optics, but in the past 5 years have used an EOTECH, OKO, Reflex, and numerous Aimpoint clones (like the Hakko and the even cheaper knock-offs.)

I like the Eotech, but the graininess of the reticle and large 65 MOA circle can sometimes get in the way.  Plus the battery life is an issue.

I'm about to get a 3rd Gen Night vision monocular (GT-14 probably) and want to use it in conjunction with a red dot with NV capabilities.  I'm also interested in having the ability to use a 3x or 4x magnifier.

Could you all recommend an Aimpoint model that would fulfill this need, mounted on either my 9mm AR SBR (8.5" barrel), 16" M-4rgery, and/or my 10/22 Pocket Rifle (5.5" barrel, suppressed).

I've seen the new Comp M4 2MOA which appears to be very nice, integrated mount, LONG battery life, and extra NV settings, but wow - $630+ dollars is a bit.  Would the Comp M3 be a better value for me, or am I going to be looking at close to the same cost once I get a good mount, and am I going to be losing anything with the NV settings not being as good on the M3 when used with a 3rd Gen NV device?

Thanks!

PS - quick question on NV if you know the answer - is there anything that keeps you from being blinded while using NV (Bloom?) when you fire your weapon?  Special flash hiders, etc.?  Or does the NV device itself compensate?

Go with the Comp M4 and a vortex flash suppressor.

Thanks, Cheaptrick - I hit m4carbine and the Hide. The little boys on ar15.com won't let me play there anymore, though so that site is out.
