My pleasure. And yes there is quite a bit to get familiar with before hopping straight in. Biggest issue once you get one will be to avoid "fishing" for the dot.I feel like a "babe in the woods" here. You are at least a light year ahead of me! I think I better go do some serious research before jumping at the first attractive deal that comes along. Thank you for your help!
Right now I'm looking into an optic mount for a revolver. I know there are a few for some Smith models. But those are mainly for the models with adjustable rear sights. I'm looking for one that will work with an integrated rear without any additional machining other than tapping a couple mounting holes. And I want to stick with either an RMR pattern or Aimpoint ACRO (closed emitter)
