I really like my Aimpoints, but my Astigmatism gives me a star instead of a crisp dot. I recently bought a Vortex Spitfire 3x and the reticle is great and is easy to see.
One thing I’ve noticed on it that I don’t see on Aimpoint, Eotech or Trijicon is that you can see the light from the front of the rifle. I haven’t tested it at night to see how far it is visible with the naked eye or with another optic.
Is this anything to be concerned with?

I have one too. You pretty much have to be right on top of the scope to see it. Especially since you run it on the first position on the brightness knob at night, which is equivalent to the illumination of an ACOG’s tritium glow.
Do they make a kill flash for it? Would that help?
There is a little red you can see at just the right angle and distance- but again this is something that will usually be noticed way after other target indicators. Personally I am running a M68 and not worrying about it.
You can run an ARD in there for recce work or other delicate missions but for GP use I run without it.
That’s not just my opinion. I asked a guy who ran one for lots of years overseas and he said that just wasn’t even a factor they worried about. They typically didn’t run an ARD either.
That’s not to say that’s always what YOU should do but there’s one good example.
