    Based on my limited experience I like the Scalarworks stuff so far. I havenít had a chance to use any of them in live fire yet.

    Couple of pros and cons in my opinion.

    Pros:

    Supposedly an excellent return to zero.
    Stupid light.
    Tool-less installation and removal.
    Streamlined foot print. Not much of anything hanging off the edges which is great for the Scar platforms given the reciprocating charging handles.
    Several height options.
    Quality, all mounts come with a driver bits for install.

    Cons:

    The cost. They can be a little spendy but the Leaps for the Aimpoints are probably the most reasonable.
    Not a true QD. While they are a tool less design you arenít getting that thing off as quick as something with QD levers. It takes a little time and effort.

    Appreciate the feedback! The mounting system was my biggest question mark for sure. Outside of that, they look great.

    They have the typical lug or cross bar for lack of better terms that engage the rail slot. You crank the knurled wheel as tight as you can by hand. That's about it.

    I will say the the Leaps for legit "scopes" or LPVO's are more tricky. They have two wheels. When you tighten them you have to alternate back and forth between when you cinch them down.

    You can't really crank one wheel down and move on to the next.

    Wish I could help, but I'm far from the authority on optics. I can tell you this. Optics and flash lights research has robbed me of half my life span I think lol. And I feel like I'm still at square one. Choice is great, but it can be the root of all frustration too lol. Sooo much out there !

    Man ainít that the truth! Ive been shooting irons for over a year now cause I like them and they work. If I had less options Iím sure I would have made a decision by now.

    It's a little big but the Vortex Razor AMG UH-1 is one to consider. Holographic sight similar to EoTech $349 maybe a bit less. My only issue is I usually use a brass catcher and the integral mount of the UH-1 doesn't let the brass catcher fit tight against the side of the receiver. Every once in awhile I get a piece of brass on top of my right hand. It is made in the USA and Vortex warranty is tops.

    Great, it's integral to the sight and is a lever type with a cross bolt that sits in the rail channel.
