I like it alot. How did you get the optic to mount to the sling mount plate?

It comes with a mount that goes between the stock and the receiver...

I just took it out again today and had a friend run another 50 rounds down the pipe. I still cannot shoulder it due to recovery from surgery. Been relegated to shooting my Springfield XDm 9mm Comp and XDs .45. Oh yeah. I removed the cheek riser and added an extra shim the red dot. Makes it so much easier to grab the dot in a hurry. Will post new pics when I can.

That is one nice Remmy.

Nice choice on the forend, flashlight, and elzetta mount! I also worked my way into those choices.

That's the mount I've been looking for! That solves my problems!

I like your setup, however, I would have mounted my sight as far forward as possible. Doing so would give you a better look at your target...IMHO.

Not crapping on your setup but that red dot is begging to be bent out of zero.
