    Great deal! Wonder why Aimpoint d/c'ed the R-1. And what's the difference between the H-1 and the R-1?

    The only difference is color between the R1 and the H1.

    Mr Alaska Sir,

    YOU ARE THE MAN.

    Once you got very mad at me because you thought I was attempting to offend your officer status, which was not the case as my Pop was for 34 yrs. So I definitely want(ed) to make sure you know I didn't mean it / apologize and

    THANK YOU THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Honestly I have been telling myself no H-1 no H-1 you want to save and buy the best best best T-1 (which I have ABSOLUTELY NO USE FOR, because I will never use NVG and even if SHTF and I became a soldier for our houses/neighborhoods/communities/countrys freedom, I doubt I would even get the NVGs we somehow procured. But I can't save the damn money, I put a $100 away, get to $200, have some problem between 2-$300 and need to spend it all and start from scratch!

    I THINK I'M BUYING TWO AS WELL @#$% IT!!! One for my new Bad Mother #$*%&@ Bushmaster and why not one for my 15-22. Or I could use it for my 930 SPX Right? It won't go bad I reckon. I can always store it in my gun safe.

    Turned on........ :)

    THANKS AGAIN SIR.

    Oh oh oh:

    Do I *need* a mount for this? I've researched, not got a good answer... Says it has an integrated (read: built on?) weaver style mount. I would be running this on first and foremost, Bushmaster M4ish style , carry handle removed, now I have a Magpul MBUS in the rear, and the factory FSB up front. So far no optic but looks like this is it. Second would be the 15-22, which has front and rear MBUS, presently an NcStar that will be promptly put on sale here for trading :) ... and therefore I'm basically ready to rock and roll on both but mounts ? Not my area of expertise.. I would LIKE An absolute cowitness if I could, could deal with the lower-1/3 that most operator type people seem to advocate, i just don't want to be screwed up and not have any or worse not have a usable sight picture. But I really don't want a 100-200-200+++? dollar mount, if at all. Thanks Mr. Alaska sir.

    If you look around AR15.com and M4Carbine.net you should be able to find a used LaRue or Daniel Defense micro mount for a more reasonable price.

    You can use it on anything you want its a red dot sight. Its just like the H1. You can put it on a pistol, rifle or shotgun.
    Here is one I already own on a shotgun.

    Quick questions-

    American Defense quick release mount, which looks like it would do everything I need,
    http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct/?productnumber=471284

    or "Aimpoint T-1 Micro Mount Space High Matte"

    http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct/?productnumber=412196

    which looks a little cheaper, and simple enough? Unscrew the included Aimpoint mount on the base, screw this onto the bottom of the Aimpoint, screw the factory base onto the new spacer mount, then screw the whole mama jama onto the rail of the AR and you're GTG right?

    I guess honestly I would rather have the simplicty of the "American Defense" but it's more expensive. Midway is having a redonkulous oUT of Stock situation on aimpoint micro mounts right now. And I prefer to order all from Midway because I am working on a big order from them (I was literally working on it when I saw Mr Alaskas post on this and I'm like SH#$ MORe money,... WAIT AIMPOINT MICRO SWWEEEEET!.

    So I would prefer to pick one up from Midway to get it at same time etc. so any help much appreciated.
