    I have a Vortex Venom on a Springfield Armory XDm-9 with thousands of rounds through it.
    It's my daily carry pistol and sees much abuse and I've never had the battery cap come loose.
    Have another one on my Benelli SBE2 turkey gun with hundreds of rounds through it...same.

    That being said, I do understand that Mr Murphy is always just around the corner.
    Having a backup rifle, backup irons, backup scope, backup batteries...I get it.
    I just have a limit on what I'm willing to pack.
    At some point, I can only be so prepared for what may or may not happen.
    I will improvise, adapt and overcome from there.

    Hi folks,

    And that should be milled down to fit the dovetail

    Well folks,



    Thanks to a little help from a buddy, I now have a Burris Fastfire III (3 MOA) on my 9.3x62



    A block from JP Enterprises JPA-GS and Arrendo Adapter made it's way to me with the help of a buddy.



    So, the block was milled from:

    to



    [​IMG]



    Which fits in the dovetail for the express V. Also a grub screw was fitted by the gunsmith to stop any lateral walk under recoil. (AB's idea)



    [​IMG]



    After which the Arrendondo Plate was fitted:



    [​IMG]



    (Sorry about bad picture, you can see the Arrendondo plate sticking out a bit beyond the block at the back)



    With this set up, I get good versatility as the block suits the JPOINT micro red dot mounting footprint which is the same as the Leupold Delta Point, Delta Point Pro, Shield RMS, Shield SMS, and Redfield Accelerator. With the Arrendondo plate, that allows anything with a Docter type footprint to be fitted, so lots of choice going forward).



    So, then fit the Burris and here are a couple of shots or what it looks like:

    Thanks everyone for there help. Will shoot it some with the Burris and decide if I want to upgrade or change out later. (THough a member of my club has a Fastfire on his 9.3x74 double so I may well not need to!)



    Thanks for your input folks!
