With the HOLOSUN AL1/3CW1.63 on hand, I’m finally ready to mount the Aimpoint Micro H-1 onto my AR-15.
Mount: HOLOSUN AL1/3CW1.63 ($19.99, Amazon.com)
I used Locktite Blue 242 ($5.49, Amazon.com) on the threads of the four Torx T10 screws that secure the optic to the mount.
The Torx T15 screw that adjusts the clamping pressure from the mount to the rail also functions as a recoil stop. I made sure that it was seated against the notch, such that the mount can’t move backwards when shooting due to recoil-induced vibration.
I used the iron sights on my rifle as reference, and adjusted the Aimpoint Micro H-1 until the dot was in line with the sight picture as viewed through the iron sights. This should get me on paper, with fine-tuning to come at my next visit to the rifle range.
