    I donít know why, but for some reason I have it in my head that this would be a old thing on an AK.

    Whatís weird is I really have no reason for thinking that, and other than some time spent with an EoTech on a pre-production BCM 14.5Ē mid length, I havenít even really used that style of reticule much. Itís pretty much all been single dot optics for me.

    I like the circle dot reticule in the Holosun/SIG Micro knock offs better than the EOtechs.

    I will likely get a 507/508 to mess with soon.

    Not an AR, but have a Holosun 507c on my 7.62 Krink. Close to 1K through it so far. No issues. Easy to zero. No bloom issue with my astigmatism (YMMV) as compared to an Aimpoint or other dot type sights. Itís very quick on target and the circle/dot reticle is perfect for my needs.

    I was using a Vortex Venom on a Samson mount on my 3 gun AR15 and then moved it to an AR pistol. I like the small RDS format much better than a tube scope but worry about environmental issues on a ďfor realĒ use gun.

    IMHO The Holosun 507c I have on my G19 is a much better sight than the Venom or my previous full sized Eotech and I wouldnít worry about using one if I could cobble up a decent Cheeto cover to use in inclement weather.

    This is the RMR version of the mount I have, it stayed zeroed and reliability returned to zero.

    Can you direct me to the mount you're using? and if you have a pic of the rifle, I'd appreciate it!

    Hereís the mount. Rifle pic may take a day or two.

    Here is a generic pic of the mount on a 556 AR.

    Thanks,

    I don't need a pic of your rifle, if the setup is similar. I assume you can see the irons through the mount
