    Good catch.

    But as noted before, people are working on similar stuff. So hopefully...

    While perhaps not as strong/secure as having direct access to the screw heads, I can think of at least a couple different ways to have mounting screws on a closed optic that donít require direct access to the top of the screw heads. One would be having the screws be captive thumb wheels with detents (sort of like the ClickDrive thumbwheels on the Scalarworks mounts). Another would be using bevel gears or small worm drives to tighten enclosed captive screws from the side of the optic.

    Well, I don't think an optic that checks all those boxes exists. But I hope somebody invents one because I'd buy it.

    Well, CBP is the largest law enforcement agency in North America with 45,000 officers between the US border patrol, CBP field operations and CBP air in Marine. If thatís not a big enough honey pot to get someone to build the optic they want then itís probably not feasible to build at this point.

    I am curious if any sizable U.S. LE agency or a military branch has ever fielded a weapon or weapon-mounted accessory made in China, especially by a Chinese company.

    In other words, if SIG or Holosun had such an optic, would it have a chance of being adopted? Color me skeptical.
    ďWell," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.

    That may be a feature, not a bug. When agencies don't really want to do something, they simply set onerously high standards that nobody can meet.....

    Pretty sure most of the Leupold scopes and Doctor and Burris red dots used by us throughout GWOT had China bits and pieces.

    Holosun could just assemble here in a new facility, a couple American bits and pieces added, and label Made in USA like so many others do.

    Nothing meets all the requirements at this time. They seemingly want a direct mount w/o plates on a gun that isn't direct milled and requires use of plates. That iron sight co-witness standard isn't possible without direct milling. Interesting wish list...

    This is quite a boon for the Glock, the MOS system and whomever comes up with this optic. And ultimately the consumer.
