I have a DMS, and I think it's a pretty poor optic, but I like my Burris PEPR mount - it's well made and sturdy. Experiences vary!
Compared to what. I have a DMS and I think for the money, it's OK for me. Why do you think it's a poor optic. My mount cost more than the optic, but it holds it's place. I bought a less expensive optic and I think I got my money's worth. Please explain.
Ok, here goes.
My main problem with it, other than it's being too heavy, is critical eye relief, especially at 4x. Your eye has to be in just the right spot behind the scope. If you move your head just a little left or right, back or forth, you lose the view through the scope. That slows you down, and is also very distracting when you're trying to hold and squeeze. I shoot in 3gun competition, and it adds time to the clock.
Another thing is play in the power ring. I don't know if that is really a problem, but it does not inspire confidence in the quality. It does seem to hold it's zero, and the adjustments seem fairly precise. So, it isn't all bad, but there is better low priced glass out there.
For a good, low price scope the Weaver 1-3x (at$150), along with their 2-10x, is one of the best bang-for-the-buck deals around. The optical quality is MUCH better than Millet's. The lower end Leupolds should be very good values, too.
