So having watched recent threads and needing another sight, I took advantage of the deal on Optics Planet. Received the optic today, and I’m pretty impressed and anxious to try it out! And now I’m wondering if it’s really an Aimpoint Micro has anyone put carbon fiber tube shades on one? Any idea what size or where to order?  

TIA

Jon Shue told me his aluminum shades will fit the MD-ADS but I never ended up buying a set. I do have his shade on my 9000SC and it's very nice.

An inexpensive solution is to buy carbon fiber tube off eBay or similar. There have several threads describing this.

I used 30mm carbon tubing with an ID of 28mm. That will cover all the aimpoint copies. The carbon tubes will not hold a press on fit so I used some golf shaft epoxy to attach the tubes.  If you have some 30mm ultra dots you can attach the front tube adapter and use their filter.

Green loctite is a much better bet than golf shaft epoxy. Just apply a little heat (hair dryer - if you have hair - or a heat gun!) and the loctite softens without any damage to tube or sight.

I have used a "quick grip" to hold the tubes in position whilst the loctite cures overnight - worked well for me several times - and got them off again with no damage several times!
