Aimpoint

Whoops, medic vocab is showing I have been using an Aimpoint CompM4s on my now 14.5″ (was 16″ before last week) carbine for a couple months now, and overall have enjoyed it. I began doing some research looking to potentially maximize my use and ability with this particular optic, and I have run into a couple questions. First, what benefits would I get from picking up a pricey LaRue mount for it? So far, the mount that came with my M4s has been perfectly adequate. I’m just curious what the gains are that make several others drop $100 plus to swap out the factory mount for a LaRue on the Aimpoint CompM4s in particular. Second, does anyone have experience with an Aimpoint CompM4s and the Aimpoint 3x Magnifier? With a 14.5″ barrel, I’m certainly not looking to target shoot at 500 yards or anything, but I would like something that could get pretty precise accuracy at say 200-300 yards. I’m just curious if that would be pretty capable with the 3x magnifier, and if it’s a good solid route to go. I know some may say to find a good 1-4x scope for what I’m looking for (and I may some time in the future), but frankly now, after already dropping $700 plus on the M4s…dropping another $1,200-$1,400 on a Nightforce, or $900-$1,000 on a Trijicon Accupoint is a bit rich for my blood. Especially considering that I’m looking to begin building my second AR in the very near future. I can get an Aimpoint 3x Magnifier for about $500, and if so, likely would be dropping the $100 plus on a LaRue mount for the magnifier in particular because I would want a solid mount that pivots. The ability to quickly switch between magnification and no magnification would be a big plus. Is putting the extra $600 plus into this worth it for what I’m looking to do with my AR? 007Kevin
