After trying most every inexpesive dot option out there, I built a frame mount and put an aimpoint on it. After about 300 rounds I'm getting used to the very different recoil and sight picure of the frame mount, but I'm starting to really like it... and targets are showing...

I love my Aimpoints but not a fan of frame mounts, too snappy for me.

Sorry, file didn't attach the first time ..

The mount was pretty simple, bought a 20 degree tapered end mill and made quick work of the aimpoint channel/grove. The pain in the but part was cutting a reverse weaver rail to fit the weaver dust cover on the frame (caspian seconds frame, get what you get)

I made a few different scope mounts. Finally said heck with it and just cut the slide.

I'm aware if that mount, but I wanted a dot forward, and I have a rail on my dustcover.  And I think that one has too thin of walls, but that's just my opinion.
