if you can get them both for the same price, it is a no brainer....the ML3 over the ML2, if nothing else for the battery life. 50,000 vs 10,000.

:cool:

Aimpoint : Aimpoint® CompML2#20
Features for CompML2

  • Designed for day use, including dusk and dawn
  • CET technology allows up to 10,000 hours of operation one battery
  • Submersible to 25 meters (75ft)
  • Also available with 2X power-fixed attachment


Aimpoint : Aimpoint® CompML3#116
Like the CompM3, the CompML3 features our breakthrough Advanced Circuit Efficiency Technology (ACET) that gives the sight unparalleled battery life and ease of use.
Built primarily for use in daylight and in low light conditions for law enforcement and military applications, the CompML3 will hold up under the roughest physical handling and most severe weather conditions. It is the perfect choice for professionals, hunters and sport shooters who don’t need night vision device compatibility but want an extremely tough and reliable sight. For night vision compatibility we recommend the CompM3.

The CompML3 comes with a replaceable outer black rubber cover, which protects it from scratching and adds an additional stealth factor. The outer cover is also available in Dark Earth Brown – perfect camo for use in the desert and in the jungle.

Unique features for CompML3

  • Designed for day use, including dusk and dawn
  • New technology called ACET allows 50,000 hours of operation on one battery
  • Available in 2 dot sizes (2 and 4 MOA)
  • Submersible to 135 feet (45 meters)
  • Outer rubber cover now available in earth brown
  • Comes with replaceable outer black rubber cover

That is 50k hours of constent use isn't it?

Other than the batt life and the rubber coveris there any other differences?

50K yes, the new M4 goes for 80,000 hours on 1 AA battery

better seals I guess, the ML3 advertised able to submerse to 135 ft vs 75 ft for the ML2.

You've got the choice of 2 MOA or 4 MOA with the ML3...all ML2s are 4 MOA.

All else equal I'd get the ML3, and in 2 MOA.

it used so there is no choice in the matter

$450 is about the average price new.....350 would be a good buy used.
I'm guessing that price doesn't include a nifty LaRue mount :lol:
no it doesn't include the niffty larue mount

Yes I have already posted I'll take it and while I have never backed out of a deal it's never a done deal until the funds are sent

So we have established

The ML3 is a superior optic has better battery life better seals and a rubber cover for added protection

That $350 is a good deal

That I have already commuted to buying it

And that it doesn't come with a mount

Now side if doesn't come with a mount and I'm rapidly going broke what would be the best mount for the money

For my ML2 I am using the aimpoint mount is there a decent mount for under $100

What about the QRP mount I'd it worth the money

Straight up or cantilever.

just got some more information about the ML3 according to the seller its brand new never been mounted he had purchased it for an build then lost his job and is just trying to get some quick cash. Geesh these are some hard times we are in. I kinda feel bad about taking it so cheap I even offered him a few extra bucks for shipping and he wouldn't take it.

even though he did not ask i sent him an extra 4% to cover the paypal fees and added him to my prayer list.

i am going to assume he was on the up and up as he did not take me up on the extra money for shipping nor did he claim to have a mount to add to the paid price. he even offered to let me send it back if i wasn't completely happy with it and he would refund all my money.

I hope everyone else here will join me in praying for this guy and his family during this trying time for them.

ok now im going to continue to seach for a mount.

You will be very happy with the ML3.

I'm partial to the Larue mounts but I've heard good things about American Defense. :)

It's a scary time right now with the economic uncertainty and the country's march away from Constitutional law and toward "progressive" socialism. It's not like we can just pack up and have another ocean to cross to get away from these people again. :-(

Everyone I talk to is uneasy and with good reason. Hopefully Americans will start to wake up soon.

your right the US is going to hell in a hand basket. the values that we once held near and dear are slowly becoming a thing of the past, it seems more and more people are willing to sacrifice more and more of their rights for another slice of the government cheese. I just hope that they will come to their senses and realize that the cheese is nothing short of a carrot on a stick and once they have snared all of our rights away they will take the carrot away. McCain/Palin are not the answer but they beat the hell out of Obama/Biden.

where is Ronald Regan when we need he may have sold weapons to the contras but at least he made a profit doing it.
