We wont discuss cost. It makes me feel retarded

I went w/ the RM01-33 (comes w/ pic mount) so I can use it on a Rem 1100 sitting in the safe.

I'll never have all that cool stuff except for the Rem 1100 (and 870) sitting in the safe!

.....YEAH funny how those RMRs cost more than an Aimpoint ><
A while back I saw an Aimpoint Micro on a glock slide...found it mildly amusing.

If you don't mind me asking, why'd you go with a 3.25 moa dot?

Anyone know of any differences between the Aimpoint H-1 vs. T1 as far as durability is concerned?

Should be the same....T1 has a different anodizing and is spec'd as being more water resistant, and having nightvision settings. I went with an H1, have a couple of them, and am very satisfied.

I'm not purposly hard on mine but at the same time I don't really make an effort to be gentle w/ them.

The H1 is my choice.

AT, I went w/ the 3.25 because it is closest to the 4 MOA I'm used to. Plus I found it locally.

Wouldn't say I'm rough. No. Normal range use, running and gunning, hiked around in hilly terrain hunting, didn't baby it. Didn't abuse it like in the DD torture test video.had mine on fer maybe 6 months now, battery still going strong.....love it.

since you are not using a FSP, I would go with a longer rail for better fore grip position and more accessory versatility...i.e.-better bipod position, if you end up using one. Since you will most likely be pinning your muzzle device, choose your rail wisely because if you choose a rail with a proprietary nut, you most likely will not be switching to something different if you later changed your mind. Personally, I think a 14.5" with a pinned BABC would look awesome with a 15" Samson Evolution Rail!


Regarding the Noveske NSR Rail...So far Rainier Arms are the only ones that have had them, that I know of...but I just got the go ahead to put in an order myself, so you should be seeing most all Noveske dealers carrying them shortly. VLTOR is changing their VIS uppers tot he new KeyMod system, so both the new VIS and the NSR will be sharing the same mounting system. there are direct-attach accessories, as well as add-on rail sections in the works. There is also a 16.5" NSR version in the works.

On an unrelated note, I got word from Noveske today that all of their rifles will include ALG ACT triggers from now on!
