An EOtech ain't gonna take the heat on an ultimak. If it does it allows enough to get to the battery and kill it, I've seen it happen on at least 20 AK's in classes they go tits up dead. Different rail system and they might be fine. Aimpoint doesn't have that issue, as well as a huge increase in battery life. For the Eotech I will say I do like the reticle.jethroUSMC wrote:doc66 wrote:Chin wield? How the hell are you mounting the optic? I've never had to chin an EoTech. And Aimpoints are tougher than what? The battery life is a given, when one is running a dot and the other a hologram, the dot is going to have a longer battery life, since it is not projected. As far as tougher, I throw, I mean throw, my rifle all the time in classes (as does Dave) and I've never had an EoTech fail due to my abuse.
I don't see the Chin weld issue for an EOTech though much more than any optic including a variable scope with a Russian or US stock. The cheekweld is non existant on the AK platform for most without modifying the system with an adapter plate, going to an AR Milspec buffer tube and something like a CTR stock with cheekriser. But that's for a different purposed AK74.
