I know that most guys don't clean their Aks at all. I do because that's what the Army drilled into my head and I can't relax if I don't. That aside, how well does the Kobra red dot hold a zero after it's removed for cleaning, and then clamped back on?Do you re-zero every time. I hope the answer to this question isn't really obvious and I just didn't see it. Man this thing is cool by the way.

I find that I need to tweak mine. I'm careful about it being tight and secure, but I don't think I ever really get it back on the same. I only use them on my 5.45s and 5.56s and find they seem to be off a touch in azimuth. The good news is they don't seem to ever be off more than the CEP for the ammo at 100m. Have they ever been off enough to miss a center of mass hit from 0-300? Not so far.

The one I use on my ARs has the weaver base and seems to hold zero better than I can shoot off hand.

yeah, but it's OK, I painted it look like the $$$$$$ Colt one and tell the ignorant that's what it is.........No pics, I just slap it on the flat top.....Same operation as the side rail mount one but uses button batteries, and some other minors.

Mine seem to be right on and I pull them off every cleaning. at least 'right on' enough that I cant tell a difference at 5-200 yards. Both rifles shoot 1.5 -2 inches at 100yds, so if it was off much, I'd think I'd notice. Try taking it on and off while at the range and I think you'll be pleasantly suprised - I was.

Pretty much on, or within an inch 1-2 clicks.

Little do they know that the Colt C-More is a POS in comparison to the Kobra.

I have never had to re-zero a kobra and I do take it off and I clean my rifle after every shoot.

Why? cause it looks pretty and brake free gives me a decent buzz..

But I have never had to re-zero the site.

Mine holds zero after being on and off. I think having a high quality (Bulgarian or Russian) rail on the rifle helps.

Holds a zero? yes.

Repeats zero afterr re-mounting? Yes.

Clean my AK? Almost never.
