I ran an EOTech for a while before I went to the Aimpoint Micro. It was a great optic. You can acquire and put lead on target in the blink of an eye. My only complaint was that it was a little too bulky a little too high for my taste and that is ultimately why I went to the Micro.

We usually shoot handguns, but can shoot rifle up to 300 yds. Usually shoot 100-200 yds, 5.56 likes that distance.
sounds like a plan!

I really don't like the idea that a neighbor can have a hold arsenal in his house... I never saw a weapon but I have to admit that they are a piece of art, the design, the shape, its a shame that something so pretty is made to kill :S

Mine shoots like butter and very accurate! Comfortable CC with the right holster as well.

I think they all need a few hundred rounds thru them to make sure they're feeding properly and not failing to fire or extract. This one has been pretty good with factory ammo and hot reloads, it does get picky with lighter loads and bullets, I run into extract issues, but it does have a pretty stout slide spring.

No problems that can't be fixed with hotter loads or lighter springs... I prefer the hotter loads

Is it Ultra Carry II ?

I'll take mine out in a bit and shoot a 50ft target from pillows with stout loads and post the target. Yours will do as well or better. VERY accurate short barrel pistols!

14 rounds of 230gr loaded hot and 14 rds of 230gr loaded light. The hot loads chambered fine, the light loads failed to feed quite a bit. Likely some of the issue is firing the same brass in two different makes/models of pistol. The R.I. chamber may be a hair larger, changing the o.d. of the brass. I'm going to pull out the calipers and check that later.

The pistol, (or I) shoots right just a hair. The heavy loads were aimed center dot, the light aimed 3" left of dot.

They make a fine pistol, the only thing I don't care for is having to use a pin for slide removal... not a biggie tho.

Hopefully this answers your question. Sorry it took me a while to do this but I forgot the other day and I remembered when I went shooting today. It does look like it will cowitness with the stock site/gas block. Sorry for the several posts but I can only post one picture or video at a time.

The video will not attach sorry. The video showed how it cowitnesses with the flip up sights and the stock sight sits about the same level so it should work great.

50ft both eyes open. Rapid fire or as close as i could get to it without getting in trouble lol 9mm and .45. Ya I pulled a few when I was aiming for the head. This target is a lot smaller than your regular silhouette target.

Depending on the ACOG's magnification power, it can blur out your front sight to the point you won't even see it, let alone co witness with it.

True but mine has no magnification. So no worries with that on this sight.

Which model do you have? The lowest I am aware of has 1.5x magnification.

This archived thread explains it best why you cannot cowitness an ACOG

Another thread referencing it cannot be done but with no explanation.

Thanks for the link. I always like reading up on stuff. Technically mine is not really an ACOG it just looks like it. For the price and quality of it I love it.

Ok, whew, I thought I was losing it. My brother in law has the same optic and he found a riser somewhere that raised it up enough so the front sight post wasn't filling his view. There are companies out there that make various height risers and with a little math work, you could figure out how high you needed to get the witness you want.

I actually got lucky. I set my iron sights then used my iron sights to set the scope. Works great!
