View Full Version : WTK: Mousegun Scope ?
February 26, 2005, 05:34
Anyone have experience or comments about these? I plucked the pic from Cheaper than Dirt's site. Hope they don't get mad about it, after all, I am just trying to get that "warmfuzzy" b4 buying. I would rather have a mount that allows iron sight use as well, but not too sure about any of the choices I have found thus far. Too much info out there :sad:
These mount directly to the mousey's CH, come as shown with flip up caps. Lighted reticle with Range finding markes, "all set up for .223 ballistics" (yeah right!) All for $77 shipped.

Looks like a dressed up version of the cheap Chicom scope I bought 10 years ago when SKS short scope was the cool looking thing to have. It didn't last more than a few range sessions and the front glass popped out:cry: I wasted $64...oh well, live an learn. With regards mounting scope on the AR carry handle, it is very hard to use because of the high mount. I had a Trijicon ACOG compact on my A2 handle (after the chicom scope debacle) and didn't like the inconsistent cheek weld.

I have a scope similar to that one that has a "range compensating" knob on it. The way it works is you zero the scope at 100 yards, then if you want to hit the target at 300 yards, you turn the knob to "3" and it automatically adjusts for holdover. It works pretty good and I'll sell it to you for $30.00 if you want it.
If you want a real AR scope, I recomment an IOR 4x24 with rangfinding illuminated reticle. That is the original scope that these cheaper ones are modeled after. The IOR will set you back about $400.

I got one of those about three weeks ago. I was able to site it in at 100 yards but the range master caught me using the ss109 ammo and asked me to stop before I could try the range finder. :rolleyes:
So far it has held up but obviously no long range testing has been done. Guess I will have to head for the hills to test it proper like.
Yes it does have a problem with being to high for a proper cheek weld. But with so little range time on it I cannot say how bad I hate it yet. Good luck with your search.
