I have been looking for an after market scope rail that offers more space than the factory one...

I had hoped to scan through the board and find the necessary pics.. However with the board swap recently I fear they are not here..

If you are using an after market scope rail on your carbine and have a pic of it readily available would you please post it... Maybe with the info on the rail as well.. (greedy I know..)

Thanks Everyone!!!!!

Ridge,

Do you have any parallax issues with the dot sight on the 995?

I mounted my RD30 and that dot danced all over the lense with just the slightest movement of my head. Cant see how it would hit the same POA unless I can get the exact same cheek weld for every single shot.

I have had a BSA red dot on my 995 for a few years and have had no issue with it what so ever... The dot will move around in the reticle when you move your head, but that is just part of the equation... When you look through the tube and see the dot..."what you see is what you get" The dot is where the bullet is going to go...

Actually I use both, my red dot is sighted in for 50 yds and the ATI laser is sighted in for 25 yds. Mostly I use the laser and adjust my aim point upwards for longer distance shots.At 100 yds about 10" high will put one right between your eyes or part your hair. Either one is quite effective at dispatching the zombie!

I try to get the same cheek weld with mine, figure it cant hurt as far as accuracy goes

Check out the A1 Optic Red Dot scope on eBay. I'm looking at the bubble pack and it says "Low Error Parallax (TM) Patent Pending Technology". Not sure what that means as when I move my head around, the dot does move too. Nice scope though, well built. Haven't mounted it yet; waiting for the right time.

for me the parallax issue, aka: needing to have the dot in the middle each time) was a big problem for me on my rd30. I switched to a cheap reflex style(thanks dave) which does not allow as much play(smaler window) so i'm much more accurate and consistent.

I have a BSA PMRS reflex parallax corrected sight that I have not had the chance to try out yet (range closed for deer season) but I have noticed that if I move my cheek weld the crosshair stays on the target.

I am looking forward to trying it out and seeing if it fixes the neding to keep your cheek weld the same

I re-read your question again and point out that most scopes come with Weaver-type mounting clamps. Also my 995 came with a Weaver mount in the box with the holes matching the Hi-Point sight mount screw holes. Perhaps you overlooked it. If this was not the intent of your question, I apologize.

Sorry if my original question was misleading or confusing.... If you look at the pics of my 995 I already have the factory supplied mount on my carbine. The issue I am having is that is is too short to allow for the proper mounting of my red dot (with flip up/down covers) and a scope ring that has been converted to a rear sight. Essentially I need a rail that is about an inch to an inch and a half longer than the factory one... that length would be enough to make everything work...

I was hoping that others who have a scope rail, other than the factory rail, installed would be willing to show theirs off and give info about the rail's performance, price, availability, etc...

Thanks...

Because of the bend in my rail, the BSA needed to be adjusted to line it up...didnt have a tool on me to do that, so I just aimed opposite where the first mag went when I aimed dead center and this was my result...



I had to aim for 11 o clock on the line between 5 and 6...

I like the looks of that BSA PMRS sight, definately a lot cheaper than the EOTech model. Wonder just how durable the BSA is though?

Anyway, I tossed a Tasco Bantam 2.5x shotgun scope on my 995 just so I can do some accuracy testing with different ammo. I always do this with a scopeable rifle just to find its pet load, then figure out what I want to use for sights once I get the ammo issue straight. Might just give the BSA RD30 a go or perhaps get one of those PMRS sights later on and see how it works out.

In case anyone wants the BSA PMRS sight, I found it for $47 here:

http://www.ableammo.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=81232

looks like a good substitute for an EOTech. thanks for the recommendation.
Thats the sight I have, and you found it for a better price! Good find.

So far all of the BSA sights I have used have worked well, even on a 12 gauge shotgun. You get what you pay for of course, but for the people like me that really cant afford to spend a couple hundred bucks on a red dot, they are a good sight.

Im building an AR right now, and I do intend to buy an EoTech for it...$350 isnt that bad, especially compared to stuff like ACOGs...but this looks like a nice alternative for the 995 and other less expensive weapons...

Ridge, look into getting a Bushnell Holo site. It's the exact same as an EOTech but without the military certification and 125 bucks less.
