I have a PRO and I have a Romeo4. I like the Romeo better than the PRO for size and weight, but you're right about the tube being small.

i'm curious now about the Trijicon MRO. Heard about it yesterday (where have i been, i know.), so I've not really looked into it too much yet, other than looking them up to check the price, but I heard it's kinda funky-lookin because it's a good-sized field of view but is still kinda small.

I have a micro on my bedside gun. Its nice and lightweight BUT I cant stand the 20mm lens/view. I much prefer a larger 30mm view or EoTech size view. If the M4 was cheaper I would own one. Instead I have a micro and several Pro's.

If I could get a 2mil AA PRO, I'd jump on it.

If you shoot with only one eye open the FOV on the COMP M4 is a lot better than the T-1, (I've got a T-1, M-3, PRO and I use a M68 at work). If you shoot with both eyes open it's not as big of a deal (YMMV).

They are very rugged, the M68 (COMP M4) get abused every day.

I have one with a 3x magnifier on my BCM Recce14 and use it as my go-to rifle for running drills.

Great field of view, amazing battery life, common battery, easy to use controls.

I picked up a used Comp M4 on Arfcom for a good price, and it's worked great on my M4 lookalike. It is a little heavy and there are times when I think about building a really lightweight carbine - pencil barrel and a micro RDS - but I have higher priorities for my disposable income these days. And no more room in the safe for another rifle anyway.

I put mine on my BRP smg. I figure it's probably tough enough to withstand the recoil of full auto better than anything else I had.

I was all set on the Comp M4s until Vortex announced the Razor AMG UH-1. Now I'm going to wait and see the reviews when it comes out for a comparison between the two.

I saw that too... thing's like a giant block sitting on top a rifle. I don't know who's designing this stuff but to some degree, aesthetics do count. Confused

Regardless, all other optics will bow before the Aimpoint Comp M5, due out early next year. Smile G@@gle image search for pics

Til then, I'm sticking with the good ol' Comp M3!

I still have a Comp ML2 on mine that going strong.

Never had an issue with the size although I haven't played with the micro ones.

My mind is not capable of comprehending this. You are all set on buying the most proven red dot on the planet and a third tier vendor announces a product and you are changing your purchase decision to wait on reviews... I must be missing something.

With most of my buying days behind me any thing Aimpoint is good to go in my book. I would take an older well used Aimpoint over anything chicom every single day. I do not forsee me buying any new product anytime soon. So older, used and more affordable is my criteria going forward. Having said that the older Aimpoints I have complete confidence in them. And I would/will buy another if the price and timing is right. These units are tough and tested in the field in real world senario's. That is good enough for me.

Couldn't agree more. That's why I ditched the Romeo RDS that I never used.

I have an Aimpoint Comp ML3 on my LMT SPM16 and a Comp M4 on my LMT MWSE. They work just fine. I do not plan on getting rid of them because of some new, shiny thing on the market.

M4 is used on one of my Robinson Arms XCR-L's. It simply works and works and works.

I dumped them all and went with 1X6 optics.

Bright 2 MOA dots at 1X just like the Aimpoint or similar, with the ability to range out at 6X.

I prefer 30mm tubes - bigger FOV and I see a cleaner crisper dot with them than with T-1/H-1 micros.

My M4 isn't going anywhere.

Unless I was gonna Operate as a hardcore Operator, in a significant Operation.... It is hard to beat the PRO.

Not to say that if money was no big deal for me I wouldn't choose otherwise, but since it is... the PRO is very, very hard to beat,

Just to add my input, as I mentioned here, I’m not bothered by large sights. If I were going on a trek across the Gobi and every microgram might matter, I would probably have a different view, but sometimes I must really wonder how many people who are obsessed with size (small size, in this case Wink ) and weight have genuine practical reasons for being so. I have had two CompML3 sights for several years and been perfectly happy with them. My agency issues surplus M68 sights and if someone asks for my opinion re a personal purchase, I have no hesitation in recommending the PRO.
