you can save some money but your not gonna get the battery life and quality of the aimpoint.aimpoints are worth every penny.
ya iv been looking all over the place for somthing that i would like as much as the aimpoints. and everything seems to point towards aimpoints being the best. even scopes that got great rewivews like the vortex, in the comments they would say that they were great for the $$$ but that they were no aimpoint. even the EOTechs, and tiijacon acogs dont seem as good ad the aimpoints at the same price, or in the acog's case twice as much. the only advantage the Acog's have over the aimpoint it the trintiam that alows night fire. but everything seems to point that the arimponts are the best scopes on the market.
