    yar uses one.

    8 MOA seems a little big for a primary optic though

    8MOA dot is huge. The battery life is relatively poor. No "clicks" on the windage & elevation adjustment makes precise and repeatable adjustments tough.

    They also have a poor reputation for holding zero on carbines, although this complaint doesn't seem to be as pervasive amongst people running them on open pistols. I think it is just a matter of a relatively high precision gun that pokes little holes making zero creep much more apparent than a relatively low precision gun that makes big holes.
     
  5. 8MOA is enormous. I'll second what sprite said about the windage and elevation adjustments. They're really designed to go on pistols. They're good sights, but for rifle use you can pick up something better suited. If you don't want to spend the money on an Aimpoint, check out the Aimpoint clones at Primary Arms.

    btw, I called my FFL here who lives down the street yesterday afternoon, to ask him about him shipping my GSG for me to the guy who bought it. Soon as he picked up and I said hi, he said "ohh, your gun is here". I was like ".....OOOHhhh, shit. Forgot about that, but that's not why I called. But I'll just come over and talk to you and do the paperwork for that at the same time"

    :rofl: my ruger is in

    I run the cmore as my short range optic and it's OK. I would not use it for anything past 100 yards, I'm running the 6 moa dot. If you don't mess with the sight it holds zero on an AR pretty well. If you abuse the rifle the zero can shift. I had my rifle in a soft case in the back of a trailer with 8 other dudes gear. It survived well up to idaho but not on the trip back. Next match after idaho the zero had shifted. I think it is more the mounting system than the sight itself. The Cmore railway does not have the most bomber mounting system nor do the rail attachments of the jp handguard. The cmore itself has locking screws on the adjustment screws so I don't see how those could possibly move.

    I mostly still running the cmore as my short range optic because I think it looks the coolest in videos. I have been thinking of going to a trijicon reflex, a eotech (that new super mini me one) or some sort of micro red dot like a sts or rts.

    For a dedicated single red dot sight I would probably go with a aimpoint or eotech. The cmore would probably work better mounted to the top rail. Cmore does make an aluminum verion call the carbine iirc. That would probably be better.

    Really though I got to ask why not put a legit scope on your AR in the form of a 1x4 varible. That is the correct way to go. Of course I would recommend the accupoint tr21 or tr24. Some other guys are running those millitt dms or whatever they are.

    My experience with them has only been on a pistol, and I love them there. I've left my light on several times and it's still running nice and bright. I can't even tell you how many times I've left it on after dry fire practice. And I've never had to readjust zero on my Open, Major 9 pistol. I've even fully submerged my pistol in water before, and it's still going strong (Fell in a ditch of water at a match in Texas during a bad storm)

    I can get a new sight any time, but I haven't had a reason to. Just as full disclosure, I am sponsored by C-More. But I've been running and shooting their sights long before I signed a contract with them.

    Let me know if you have any specific questions and I'm sure I can get you answers.

    Never ran a cmore on a shotgun. I have a doctor on my open benelli and a jpoint on my open 1100. I had a cmore on my 10/22 for a while and then it moved to my AR as a secondary short range optic. There is a aimpoint on the 10/22 now. I also way back when had a eotech 512 which I've sold. Was on the ar, then on the 10/22
