All my rifles have optical sights but I had no experience with red dot sights so rather than drop a lot of cash on the chance I might like one I googled red dot and the one from Leapers kept popping up as being quite good for the money.
I think is was only $35 and so far I'm delighted as to how well it works. In fairness I haven't used it past 70 yards yet and its certainly not a bench rest sight but target acquisition is quick and easy! I just found it for less here.

Since we are on the topic of mounts.... I walked into a gun shop last week and saw a mount that fit sooo perfect than any other mount I've seen , look it up it's made by Texas weapon systems. The finish was great and it felt extremely strong

Exactly, it replaces the rear sight but it does had a rear sight machined into it.

I've seen this around but held off due to the price and assumption of the extra weight.

Ah, ok, I thought I missed something! Maybe later after you get a Glock?

I saw it in a shop on a rifle and held it , there is also a YouTube review on it. It was about as much as the stock dust cover I'm ordering it on Monday I'll MSG you to let you know if it's worth it

I've had a couple glocks 17 and a 19. Liked them but I prefer M&Ps. I've also done a few AKs in the past but am down to one at the moment.

It's been really nice so far. The old site gave me a hassle because I was trynig to limp wrist it out so I didn't scratch anything. Once I man'd up it slid right out. The MI mount went right in and adjusted easily. It comes w/ some red loctite which is recommended.

It held zero, is light, solid, and looks cool.
