Micro mounting options

Post by Jerry Keefer on 6/8/2015, 12:37 pm

Jon and I were talking about frame mounts for the micro.  A shooter sent me this, but not in time to try it out this year.. .. The possibilities for this style  mount is great with a flat topped slide, and the mount custom machined for that distance.  Switch to the David Sams silver soldered steel base plate for strength. Interesting..

I really like the Kodiak mount, I am able to run a #12 recoil spring on my bear shooting 185gn HPswc over 4.1 WST. Might work with #13 and 200gn. 

I am using a Primary Arms dot, it works good but its still new, anyone have experience with these? 

100% flawless so far, mount screws required blue locktite but over all it works good. 

Why do mount cos insist on putting the mount over the ejector port? 

And does that mount work with the wegland 5 hole pattern?

I like that mount but don't like that the dot is mounted sideways, wonder if that would cause any issues when zeroing, being the adjustment knobs are not oriented as to how it was designed to be used.

David;

It should not matter and I will say it again this way" it should NOT matter".
Just remember that now your UP and DOWN are your LEFT and RIGHT adjustments.
Your LEFT and RIGHT are your UP and DOWN adjustments.

It is just like doing a box test to see if your scope will return to zero like I do on my rifles.

But if you adjust the down dial it won't go down.

Quite a while ago someone came out with a similar mount, it may have been a grip mount. Few of the scopes back then had a split washer type device similar to a snap ring for the elevation and windage graduations with an arrow to show direction. It was an easy task to switch them. Elevation worked OK but the arrow was pointing the wrong way for windage. As far as I can recall the scope worked OK being turned 90 degrees. The grip mount was no good! Probably because they were die cast Aluminum or pot metal

Ya made me look.  For us unwashed without fancy machinery and stuff who are stuck with plain old Weaver type mounts...

My Roddy made 45 with Clark rail and H-1 sight, the centers of bore and sight are 1 and 7/16 apart.

With a 30mm UD and Weigand rings, 1 and 17/32


On a Nelson 22, H-1 to bore is 1 and 7/32

All measurements made with ultra precision Stanley tape measure

Jack, I will be shooting your old HS at Roddys match this weekend. I will bring my 5lb hammer and a yard stick if we need to calibrate anything.

Len ( about the scope direction. The one on top makes it go up and down. The one on the side makes it go left or right. Can't see the arrows on half the scopes anyhow so just have to remember which way to crank it. )

And on my ultra-dots the rings with the marks fall off. I have several in my parts box.

I have a Insight reflex, nice sight but in my box. It had black on black markings and arrow, I needed my microscope to see it. Was sighting it in at the club, no one could tell me which way was up or right. One guy had a fancy cell phone with a camera, took a picture and zoomed it up!
 I shot next to Mango at Perry, I'm not sure what scope he was using but he had the arrows well done put on the side of his scope. I could see it from my position.
 I had a few of those loose split washers, clear epoxy fixed that problem.
 I liked Mango's idea, not sure how he did it but I'm thinking of getting those rub-on symbols and letters we used on drawings before AutoCad and try putting an arrow on the side of my scope.

A metallic sharpie goes a long way. A note stapled to the pistol box does too.

The Aimpoint Micro adjustments work the same regardless of the scope body orientation..
