    Tradeoffs. Two screws to change batteries, and in return less likely to have the battery fall out and its superior in its water resistance. It's also one of, if not THE lowest profile sight that exists.

    That's true I suppose. Also has the most versatile mounting foot print. The block for machine is en route to me so will take it along to have a look at a few sights.

    This block:

    Can be machined to a dovetail and takes the Leupold Delta Points, J Points, Shield RMS/SMS and Redfield Accelerator.

    With this adapter plate:

    Docter footplate can be used (Burris, Kahles and some others)

    So I now need a shop with a good range of optics to go and look at...

    Bit less than €400 for the Kahles. Only thing I don't like about the Kahles is only 4 intensity settings... Leica has 12, Leupold Deltapoint Pro has 8...

    They all look private label sight docter to me.

    I’d be interested to know who makes what.

    i prefer to be able to change battery quickly if needed, without removing the sight

    how on earth would battery fall out? unless you leave the battery cap completely loose??

    Never used a ghost ring on the bolt cocking piece. Interesting. Where did you source it, and are they pretty accurate? (FYI I'm thinking along the lines of putting one on my FN 9.3x62.)

    Thanks, kindly, for that info!! (y)
    My FN has a Sprinter barrel and a fitted after market foresight, that stands about 3/4" above the barrel - so it's nice and high - and I notice the bead itself is a bright orange!

    Oh I don’t know. Maybe a 470NE recoiling, or dropping a rifle, or sliding through some thick Jess?

    What you think is a defect the designers probably thought was a feature. Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.

    Turning the tables, what happens when the battery drawer falls out never to be found again during a hunt?

    I recently changed the fixed 4x Pecar Berlin over to a Burris 3-9x, as I don't like the German post reticle, and it also has roll-on roll off scope mounts. It also came with a second walnut stock - that stays wrapped up!! I recently loaded up some 286gr Woodleigh RNSN and it shoots very accurately indeed!!

    Thanks!! It shoots nice too!! I was bequeathed this rifle from my mate. He intended using it in Africa - but passed before he could use it. So I'm rectifying this on his behalf in June. My brother is (but fast becoming was) a 7mm Weatherby Mag man, and after drooling over the crimped rounds I've just loaded up, he's itching to try it out!!

    here is a pic
    by the way i wasnt trying to start an argument just pointing out facts....
    just behind the lens in a sort of recessed tray is the battery compartment, u need to turn this about 30 degrees with either a coin, screwdriver, primer end of a decent size rifle round or possibly a knife. it has a rubber seal and is fairly tight
    mine is on a 416 RM, for 5+ years now and recoil never did a thing
    doubt any vegetation can get in there and turn this cap and then remove it
    and well if i lose the lid and battery, then i will remove the sight(quick release mount on my blaser) put it in my pocket and shoot with open sights untill i get it all sorted

    best regards

    Also the Burris has a housing / dust cover that you can look through which is helpful.
