AW93 Aimpoint mount

Post by messenger on Wed Sep 26, 2018 1:00 pm

I just purchased a used AW93 set up just the way I wanted. It has a scope mount and a 1911 grip. Imagine my excitement as I take it out of it's case and caress this work of art. I take my aimpoint micro complete with Tott's shades and Kodiak Machine mount and go to slide it on and........what the........... it won't go on. I can get it about 3/16" on and that's it. My question is the original Aimpoint mount different dimensions or is it time to get the file out?

you have to remove the cross bolt, place scope on rai,l and then slide bolt through. Also that doesn't look like a Doug Hall AW93 scope base shame on you (unless it is than good on you!)

You may have to file the side of one slot just a bit for the Kodiak screw.  Don’t file the bottom of the slot!

Better yet would be to just use the stock Aimpoint mount on a static .22 frame and save the Kodiak base for centerfire slide riding.

I'm afraid you all have misunderstood my statement. With the bolt out it will not slide on. I have four Aimpoints all on Kodiak mounts. I realize the slot has to be widened. Since I have sold all my stock Aimpoint mounts, I can't check to see if a stock mount would work. I'm trying to find out if the stock mount is slightly larger where it would slide on the rail.
