Micro mounting

Post by scrum derringer on 4/17/2017, 11:49 pm

I have a micro lying in wait until I can figure out one of two options of mounting; totts slide mount or totts base to attach to an existing rail mounted to the slide. For ease of mounting and unmounting with the shades, I figure the base would be better. However; after eyeballing the Micro in relation to the existing  slide mount cross slots, it appears that the totts/kodiak base will either hang over the ejection port or off the back of the slide. I can't seem to find any pics to answer that question. Does anyone run a micro on one of the back 2 slots of a clark/rra/(fcw) slide mount?

I have had both. The problem with the mount that replaces the rail is if you have shades. You will then need to drill holes down through the shades to be able to mount it.

The kc slide cut is awesome,but in a range officer is impossible because sight cut. I like the sight rib,more open red dot option.

I should have clarified that be slide cut KC does not an option at this point, though it is the coolest and makes the most sense. I'm more or less specifically wondering if the Kodiak Mount can even fit on a rail without hanging over edges.

It's gonna hang over a tiny bit if I remember correctly.

The simple answer is no.  It's either going to be proud over the back of the slide mount, or cover part of the ejection port.  Covering the ejection port would be the preferred way of mounting in my opinion as it doesn't cause any problems.

Here's RO with scope mount added after machining flat.

Problem your going to run into is on rear mounting on 1911 you have to use a standard/Totts base. No way to use mounting screws from bottom and still mount to slide. The mid slide mounted Totts base is only one I'm aware of that can offer that option. From your pic are you wanting fore or aft mounting?

 I think I would like the kodiak mid slide mount the most, however, I don't trust myself with drilling the shades to get access to those mounting screws. Therefore the Kodiak base mounted aft of the ejection Port seems logical for mounting and unmounting, except for this possible overhang issue that I'm probably overthinking. I was able to take ownership of a new condition Frerking Custom works wad gun, and he has proprietary slide mounts, however, it is the same hole pattern as clark/rra. I also don't trust myself removing the slide mount because it is cera coated to match the gun, I assume the mount wasn't Cera coated while already attached but don't want to find out the hard way just yet.

The other thing is, I wanted to upgrade in red dots. I ended up buying a 9000sc and then shortly thereafter won an AimPoint micro on eBay. The gunsmith I bought the gun from recommend lighter red dots, while I already mounted and am getting use to the 9000sc on the old wadgun.

Yeah 9000 is real heavy. It chugs the gun. But AMU likes them that way, but they shoot warm ammunition.

Thats why i got it because the amu uses them, they have a big tube for viewing, and they are less expensive than micros....until i was able to get a new micro for $380

In your oprion, will a heavier scope wear the gun down quicker?

Gun won't know the difference. Will just cycle slower with the 9000.

Yes I cam make any length extension for the 9000SC. AMU has the extension extend past the slide so that any water that collects on the slide during a rain at Perry the water isn't projected onto the lens when the slide recoils. Can make them for the UltarDot too.
 AMU was using the Aimpoint H1 Micro but removed it due to Parallax issues.
