View Full Version : Aimpoint PRO vs M68 CCO
I was singing the praises of my M68 (Aimpoint CompM3) and the PRO got mentioned. I got asked and I was stumped. What's the difference between the two optics, other than price?
Anyone find anything wrong with the PRO?
Just from looking at it, I seem to remember it has fewer settings, and maybe something else I can't recall at the moment. I'm on my phone now, and can't really look it up.

Well, it comes out of the box with a Picatinny/1913 mount so for under $500 you can install it immediately without added expense.
doesn't it come with two mounts? for different mounting heights?
just looked on their site... comes with a mount and spacer, so you can use it on a shotgun or rifle...
Think of an M2 with fewer settings and the Aimpoint mount included in the price.
Feature wise they appear to be identical.
I tried to copy and past but data didn't format correctly.
Check out the product comparison here:
Here are the only differences I found:
Battery life: The Aimpoint PRO battery life is 30K hours where the Comp M3 is rated at 50K hours. (My M2 is rated at 10K hours).
Both the PRO and M3 have 6 Day settings and 4 NV settings.
I have a M2 and it's rated at submersible to 25M/80 feet while the M3 and PRO are rated to 45M/150 feet.
The PRO is only available with a 2MOA dot while the M3 you have a choice of 2 or 4 MOA. The M2 that I have is 4MOA.
On paper I can't think of a single thing wrong with the PRO.
the battery life isn't as good, it includes the mount as other have said, also has built in lens covers w/ the rear cover being clear so in an emergency you dont have to open the covers to shoot. has identical housing and is for all purposes the same. I have had mine about 2 months and it is awesome... can't be beat for $375
