Which brand would be better? Bushnell HOLOSight or EOTech HOLOgraphic Weapon Sight? They run about the same price and I wanted to get one in a few weeks.

Only the Bushnell is a true "Holosight".
It uses an actual laser to create a reticle on a little "HUD" screen.
The EOTech is a fine sight... but it's NOT a Holosight.
To be an actual holosight a laser is a 100%, absolute, unavoidable REQUIREMENT.
You CANNOT create anything resembling a holographic image without a coherent, parallel-wave light source, usually monochromatic.
We call these light sources LASERS (Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation).
Okay, you can slap me now. :?
I just get irate at the companies running around squawking "HOLOSIGHTS GALORE!!!" when their product really uses a red Led just like every other red-dot sight.
Ok, this time I'm really done.

So....Which one..lol
Not that simple a question unless you're considering the Bushnell which only comes in one flavor. The EOTech has at least 3 and maybe more models out. Depends on what kind of features and battery system you want to use.

I'm having a hard time making myself buy one of these. I want one but I could buy a Sub rifle for the same price or cheaper.... A new gun or a sight....

It's my understanding the Bushnell Holosight is actually made for Bushnell by EOTech, and the internals are basically the same. It's basically the civilian version of the EOTech.

It depends what you're planning on using it for. I see the EOTech as being more CQB oriented than the ACOG, which is a magnified optic.

They each have several different models, so you'd really have to narrow it down a bit more and compare features to make an educated decision.

I chose the EOTech 552.A65 and a LaRue mount for my M4gery.



This is similar to my setup...

Oh ok, I've always seen that referred to as the Trijicon Reflex, no mention of ACOG...

The reflex is tritium and fiber-optic powered and has problems with the reticle being washed out in bright sunlight. Stand in the dark and aim it out into a well lit area, the reticle is easy to lose. The new Trijicon Tri-Power was designed to solve that problem (and a few others) but it supposedly has a muzzle-side signature, the 'donut' cover on the top didn't fit properly, and it's so light it just feels like a toy. It's actually what I went to buy, but I couldn't bring myself to spend $460 on something that felt that cheap...
