What are you actually asking? Which one will look better? Which one will perform better? Performance is very dependent on what brand you get and if the 3x magnifier actually lines up with the EOTech. Looks on the other hand... that's up to you.
Yeah CQBR beat me with visual proof but I was going to say it's not unrealistic at all as I've seen soldiers in video clips, and in various pictures using ACOGs on CQB length M4s.
It's really going to come down to personal preference and functionality. Would you use a 4x32 ACOG on a CQBR for indoor CQB? Probably not. You wouldn't need the 4x zoom... maybe a 1x if you want.
But you would most likely want to use an Eotech for indoor, or a more open sight. But again personal preference. The cool thing is if you get an optic like an Eotech replica (a good one at that) you can always use it for indoor CQB, and then throw a magnifier on it and use it outdoor too. Which would make that optic choice much more versatile.
Which you know that because you used my 3x magnifier with my Eotech 553 on your G&G M4
I also have a 4x32 ACOG that I would definitely let you try on the M4 so you could see how both would work out to compare.
Either optic won't be unrealistic. Just more or less what works better for you.

One feature of the magnifier that nobody has mentioned yet is that it doesn't affect the zero of the weapon. If you have multiple AEGs with red dot sights, you could buy one magnifier and move it from replica to replica.
