Great deal! Wonder why Aimpoint d/c'ed the R-1. And what's the difference between the H-1 and the R-1?

The only difference is color between the R1 and the H1.

Mr Alaska Sir,

YOU ARE THE MAN.

Once you got very mad at me because you thought I was attempting to offend your officer status, which was not the case as my Pop was for 34 yrs. So I definitely want(ed) to make sure you know I didn't mean it / apologize and

THANK YOU THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Honestly I have been telling myself no H-1 no H-1 you want to save and buy the best best best T-1 (which I have ABSOLUTELY NO USE FOR, because I will never use NVG and even if SHTF and I became a soldier for our houses/neighborhoods/communities/countrys freedom, I doubt I would even get the NVGs we somehow procured. But I can't save the damn money, I put a $100 away, get to $200, have some problem between 2-$300 and need to spend it all and start from scratch!

I THINK I'M BUYING TWO AS WELL @#$% IT!!! One for my new Bad Mother #$*%&@ Bushmaster and why not one for my 15-22. Or I could use it for my 930 SPX Right? It won't go bad I reckon. I can always store it in my gun safe.

Turned on........ :-)

THANKS AGAIN SIR.

Oh oh oh:

Do I *need* a mount for this? I've researched, not got a good answer... Says it has an integrated (read: built on?) weaver style mount. I would be running this on first and foremost, Bushmaster M4ish style , carry handle removed, now I have a Magpul MBUS in the rear, and the factory FSB up front. So far no optic but looks like this is it. Second would be the 15-22, which has front and rear MBUS, presently an NcStar that will be promptly put on sale here for trading :-) ... and therefore I'm basically ready to rock and roll on both but mounts ? Not my area of expertise.. I would LIKE An absolute cowitness if I could, could deal with the lower-1/3 that most operator type people seem to advocate, i just don't want to be screwed up and not have any or worse not have a usable sight picture. But I really don't want a 100-200-200+++? dollar mount, if at all. Thanks Mr. Alaska sir.

If you don't need quick detach go with the Daniel Defense mount. its very good and affordable.

If you look around AR15.com and M4Carbine.net you should be able to find a used LaRue or Daniel Defense micro mount for a more reasonable price.

You can use it on anything you want its a red dot sight. Its just like the H1. You can put it on a pistol, rifle or shotgun.
Here is one I already own on a shotgun.

Quick questions-

American Defense quick release mount, which looks like it would do everything I need,
http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct...tnumber=471284

or "Aimpoint T-1 Micro Mount Space High Matte"

http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct...tnumber=412196

which looks a little cheaper, and simple enough? Unscrew the included Aimpoint mount on the base, screw this onto the bottom of the Aimpoint, screw the factory base onto the new spacer mount, then screw the whole mama jama onto the rail of the AR and you're GTG right?

I guess honestly I would rather have the simplicty of the "American Defense" but it's more expensive. Midway is having a redonkulous oUT of Stock situation on aimpoint micro mounts right now. And I prefer to order all from Midway because I am working on a big order from them (I was literally working on it when I saw Mr Alaskas post on this and I'm like SH#$ MORe money,... WAIT AIMPOINT MICRO SWWEEEEET!.

So I would prefer to pick one up from Midway to get it at same time etc. so any help much appreciated.

Has the r1 been discontinued? I'm only seeing the t1 and h1 in the current products on Aimpoint's site anymore. Seems like these were getting more and more popular with lots of folks painting over the shiny finish for a better priced micro to use on their ARs. Might have to pick one up at this price while I can. Thanks.

Ordered one!!!!!!!!! And I got a Daniel Defense mount coming from Brownells... $%*$*y deal though because I spent like $12 on UPS Ground, which means it will be next week... but I had paid for 2nd Day Air from MidwayUSA (24) cause I really wanted this and I'm planning a trip to the gunsmith will lots of things for him to do, wanted to include this on my AR work for him (Just an expert look-see etc.) ,,, and as you saw Midway has run out of EVERY SINGLE MOUNT for the Micros...LITERALLY mine got STOLEN FROM MY CAR while processing everythnig and you could SEE the line of products going down Out-of-stock, NEXT Out-of-stock, NEXT etc. I called Midway about the Remington 597 part I needed and he said regarding R-1, "at least 1000" ...

So also, as someone pointed out somewehre, this is spreading like wildfire across the interwebs and I personally thank Mr Alaskapopo sincerely and respectfully.. Like I said it's basically my top top choice (I mean even if I Spend $650 for a T-1 for my Ego, I will NEVER USE NVG HONESTLY) and the Comps , M4 even, too big and heavy for me... EOTechs I never dug really and Trijicon sure is my dream. Would love to have an ACOG. I do not have $2000 for one . And if I ever do have $2,000 for an ACOG I'm gonna need another $2,000 for a Colt or Colt +++ to put it on.

As I mentioned to Thank my Alaskapopo *AND* I don't dig EOTech, I was actually about to buy an EOTech 556 just because it looked like a good deal, "half" of the micros I was looking to buy...On this board actually, I'll say no more but I personally believe I was making a *very fair* offer and explained the exact reasons of my cash offer and for $30 buck difference...I mean..Well lets just say I would be personally Devastated had I got that EOTech and this sale happened, and deep down now I am saying a thanks prayer to Our Lord because He works in mysterious ways... In mysterious ways that seem to include Aimpoint Micros BABY!!!! WOOHOO!!!!!! i am sOOOOOOO tACTICOOL BROS!!!!
