Anybody using the 9000 on a 45? Would like a review as this is on my short list to replace the UD.

AMU uses it almost exclusively on both .22 and .45 pistols. I don't have one (4 micros) but am working on a .38 spl that has one. Excellent dot and huge field of view. Very clear optics. They're just really big!

They can get by either way because they all shoot factory Atlanta arms ammo 185fmj-hp . That scope weighs in at +-
 9 oz with mounts, its 7.4 with no mounts. Hard to get that moving with light lead loads. Phillip Hemphill shoots one on his rock river slide mounted but he also uses zero factory 185fmj-hp.

The Zeros are HOT! I shot some of Steve Reiter's zero ammo once and boy do they bark. Yes you are correct.

I switched over to the 9000sc with a 2 min dot from the UD on both the .22 and the .45 last year after Perry and have never regretted it. IMO, the dot is much clearer and brighter than the UD. Yes, it is a tad bit heavier, but speaking for myself, I do not notice it. I also noticed that I did not need to use a filter if the sun was a little bright. I have the AP mounted on the slide. I use Zero 185 JHP on top of 4.7gr of 700X for the long line and the Zero 185 lead SWCHP on top of 3.9gr of BE for the short line. I do not have any trouble with ejection or feeding with a 10lb spring.

I just got the 9000SC, Like it so far. Yes the AMU is using the 9000SC ALL Slide mount. Henderson too uses SLIDE mount! Though he didn't shoot with the team last year and it's possible he will not shoot this year. Though he did not shoot at Perry last year he was there late, I did talk to him at the AMU trailer. While there another AMU shooter was thinking of frame mount so he asked Henderson who told him my the slide mount was better.

I used a pair of 9000sc's for several yrs. They are really good sights! I ran them on 3 different .45's  using nothing but slide mounts. 4.0 BE behind Quality Cast 160's, long ejectors, and a 9lb recoil sprg. They were by far the best scopes I've used and I've had most every AP & UD made.

When I scored him at Orangeburg SC summer of 2014 he was shooting a 1911 9mm and a 45 both with David Sams frame mounts. Maybe they were his personal guns as he was on vacation.

AMU changes methods of mounting, when Adam first went it they were using frame mounts. Later they changed it and used slide mounts. I think they changed it again but I believe the shooters at that time liked the slide mount better, I have forgotten exactly why but I'm sure that was it. So it was changed back to slide mount. Henderson's reason for liking the slide mount is that the lower slide speed due to the weight it lessens the effect of recoil and easier to get the gun back on target during trimmed and rapid. (That was the reason given to the other AMU shooter thinking of getting frame mount) I know Adam likes the slide mount for that reason also. If I remember I will try to ask Brad (the AMU smith) as to what the benefits and problems of both type of mounts when at Perry this year.  In 2014 Henderson was a member of the AMU so I'm sure he was using AMU guns when shooting the match you scored him and it was frame mounted.

Does the 9000sc come with decent rings? What rings/mount are suggested for slide mount? I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on the 9000 as the UD on my 45 is now blinking at me and the rheostat is really loose...

Thanks in advance.

I would suggest a RRA slide mount.  Many more options of where to locate your rings.  The 9000SC comes with weaver style rings.  Much better than the vertical split rings on the UD's.  I have 2 on hand.

The rings supplied with the 9000SC are the best I've seen. They are very similar to the Weaver rings and not split vertically like the UD as KC mentioned. Many of the rings I have looked at are similar to the Weaver but at close inspection to where the ring fits the base there is a slight difference that causes the rings not to fit the Weaver base. A few I looked at will cause the rings to cant slightly then the fixed vee opposite the the clamp does not fit correctly. Some rings seem to be designed to fit a wider style Weaver base as was the case with the Micros I got from Primary Arms so I made a wider base.
 The rings that came with the 9000SC fit perfect on a Weaver base.(have a new Weaver unused base) 4 Screws are used to close the ring on the scope and the split is not the typical 180 degrees, about 220 degrees, dropping about 20 degrees on both sides and therefore making the width smaller. I like the rings and as I mentioned it's the best I've seen supplied with a red dot so far!

I just finished a tune up on an old Clark .38 spl that has a 9000sc on it. I like it! I'm planning on getting one for my 208s. Not sure about 1911 though.

Search the web 10sandxs, I was looking a few days ago and found a site selling them for under $400 and free shipping. Had to put the item in the shopping cart then the price was given. I thought I bookmarked the site but can't find it unless the price changed. I'll do more looking because I want another too.

 Looked at Sports Optics http://www.sportoptics.com select the 9000SC 2MOA dot $455 and put it in the Cart. Then in the shopping Cart enter the Promotion Code  OFFSEASON it will drop the price to $400.50 with free shipping. I have that site bookmarked don't know why. As I mentioned above I found a similar site that lowered the price when the item was put in the shopping cart and no code was needed. I thought the price was in the $390's. I will keep looking

 Looked at Authorized Optics http://www.authorizedoptics.com/aimpoint-9000-sc-2moa-matte-with-30mm-rings.html They are selling the 9000SC 2MOA dot for $374.00 Free Shipping and no Tax

Just about everyone I've spoken with says the Aimpoint dots appear smaller than advertised.  4 looks smaller than their current 4 MOA and same thing for the 2 MOA dots as well.

Love the 2 in my new/used 9000. It does look small but very round. Not very many of my other scopes look round to me.

Before they would advertise dot size yet it always looked bigger, now they are smaller than advertised! When comparing the 5 MOA dot on the Sightron S30-5 I liked the size since it looked a lot smaller than 5 MOA and my 9000SC 2 MOA looked kinda small. Seeing that good price at Authorized Optics I was thinking of buying another 9000SC but now I'm thinking the next one might be a 4 MOA.
 On the bright side if I shoot a bad score I can blame it on the dot size! lol!
