I am trying to mount an Eotech on my S&W76 and the easiest way is to mount a Weaver type rail on the barrel shroud. But I frequently dump 4-5 mags in a row and barrel gets extremely hot. 350 rounds in a minute or two. Will this hurt my Eotech?

I have a N-powered EO and have left the rifle in the AZ sun so long it's too hot to touch, including the sight. No ill efects yet.

FWIW: I have also run experiments with the Ultimak gas tube sight mounts for AK's and have determined to my satisfaction that the gas tubeunder rapid fire will not get the sight as hot as the AZ sun will.

Luck,
