Micro Scopes?

Post by Axehandle on Sun Oct 25, 2015 4:13 am

Thinking I might get KC to cut a wadcutter gun slide for one of these micro scopes.   Aimpoint and Ultradot products have thoroughly proven themselves through the years.   I sure like the look of the micro versions mounted directly on the slide.   Any of you guys shooting the micro products?

I think they are presently the best option.. The draw back is the lack of extension tub, filter attachment, and I don't care for the mount. All of which can be over come.  The cost discourages many..

Primary arms makes a decent Aim Point Clone for $175. Fred Totts makes tubes and a great slide mount which has roughly the same Drill pattern as a clark rail. The cost of the tubes and the rail is about $170. 

I have a set up on my Les Baer and the only issue I have is the idiot behind the trigger.

I am having Crawford build me a 45 (order has been in for 6 months so I am close)with a micro Aimpoint with the mount cut into the slide.  I have an Aimpoint on my 22.  I have the Tott's shades put on mine.  Used my vice to press fit them on.  Before that I had made shades out of rolling black construction paper.  It worked but I was always afraid they would fall off during a match.  I like it and got used to the one side for electronics (so you do not see a full circle when looking through it).

I would also mention that there are numerous pictures that I have posted of the Micros in different configurations.. Slide mounted and frame mounted 45s and .22s.. A search might dig some up, or I can repost if need be.

KC has pictures on his web site:  http://www.kcskustomcreations.com/photos.html
I like the idea of the integral base.
The Aimpoint micro is a proven entity.  How about the Ultradot micro?

I had an ultra dot and I had to send it back, the base had some play and it lost zero. Therefore i would suggest the Primary arms realy good quality so far.

I have an Ultradot Micro HD

Post by Joe L on Sun Nov 22, 2015 3:46 am

I've had an Ultradot HD Micro on a .22 pistol since last year.  It has a 2 moa dot and so far has been excellent.  I might put one on a centerfire gun, currently using a Burris FF III 3 moa on the centerfires.  The glass in the Ultradot HD Micro is much clearer than the Burris.  Both have been fine.  I think I had to bend the battery contact down for a little more tension on the Ultradot when I first got it and that is all.  Very happy with it.

I had an HD micro and sent it back.  The scope is not centered on the base.  It is off approx 1/4" to the left.  For a right handed shooter you may not even notice but for a lefty it was obvious to me.  I thought it was just mine until I contacted three or four others with the same scope.  Fred Totts has made a couple new bases for it to correct it.
