Slide will travel to rear during recoil and ejection port is not blocked by the mount.

Yes, I can see that. But why have it on the right side at all?

Gets the scope lower to bore line. That's why :)
It's not in the way.

Why is that? I have David Sams frame mounts on my guns. They attach to the dust cover on the left side, and are pretty darn close to the bore.

In case of a jammed round, I really dont like the idea of a scope mount covering the ejection port. It just seems like the least good way to do a low profile frame mount. You opinion may differ but I would like to get some technical details on why a right side frame mount allows you to have the scope closer to the bore line. Im not seeing it, in my head.

The scope is rotated 90 degrees moving the scope as low as possible over the slide. Probably only 1/8" to 3/16" lower than Dave's mount. Notice nothing between the scope and the slide. Dave's has a mount between slide and scope.

If the optic was mounted that way the optic would be looking at you . . . or the knob would be under the dot. That would make adjustments difficult.

I understand that part now. Everything is a trade off. This is one, I wouldn't care to make for a scope closer to the bore line by an eighth or 3/16 of an inch.

If the price ever comes down a lot on aimpoints I might consider it, but without several modifications I find them difficult to deal with. At one point I owned three of them. The factory mount and screws were totally inadequate and I wouldn't shoot one at Perry or Canton without tube extensions for the rain.

Nice scope but not worth double or triple what an Ultradot cost. I also had some issues with Aimpoint's
Customer service.

Im sure when Zins calls them, they pick up the phone.... :-)

I spoke to the AMU armorer at the Dixie regional 2 weeks ago and he said they are using the Aimpoint 9000 pretty much exclusively.

Yes, a much better scope than the Micro in my opinion. If money were no object probably what I would be using as well.

I use 3 micros and 1 9000sc. I find no difference in quality just size of view. The 9000 is quite heavy. AMU uses full power match jhp ammunition. For softer loads the 9000 might be a problem. I have no parallax issues with either scope they are both perfectly on call at 50 yds.
