This is the new Aimpoint CompM4, the next evolutionary step in Aimpoint's excellent M2/M3 series. It uses a single AA battery for 8 years of 24/7 use at setting 12 and has 7 NV settings and 9 day settings (w/the last being extra bright). W/E caps are better protected as is the rear-facing brightness control knob (the indicator line on the knob is a nice touch, allowing you to visually check the appx brightness setting). The integral QD mount auto-sets proper torque when installing (so no need to guess how much torque to apply) and is keyed to the optic itself to absorb recoil & impacts. It also comes w/a detachable riser so as to make it compatible w/various platforms (shown removed in these pics). An ARD killflash is part of the package as is a heavy-duty rubber bikini lens cover (which seals very well against the elements but, IMHO, is somewhat slow to attach/remove). On my PS90's it sits low enough to provide excellent cheekweld when using the dual mag setup or good chinweld when using a single mag. Typical Aimpoint quality is evident everywhere. If you already have a good M2/M3 setup (or other optic) that you're happy with then the M4 probably isn't worth upgrading to. However, if you're in the market for a new Aimpoint or an excellent CQB optic that's good to go "right out of the box" w/mount, killflash & lens cover then the M4 is worth considering.

Thx! I read your post about how your Eotech was the only optic review so I thought I'd add this to the pot...

I like how you have the allen wrench attached.

I seem to always be forgetting mine when I go to the range.

Thx. It's an ongoing experiment looking for the best location to store it somewhere on the PS90 and this seems to be working well so far.

I'll get one up no later than this weekend. Just the objective or do you want the eyepiece as well?

Sure that would be cool...
I've added a couple of borrowed pics until I can add more of my own. Notice the removeable ARD killflash on the front and the indicator line on the rear brightness control which gives you a nice visual indication of the appx brightness setting.
