Vortex UH-1

Just came in the mail after a few months of waiting. Haven't had a chance to shoot with it but initial impressions look good. Unfortunately won't be able to get it out for another week or so. Mine doesn't have any of the typical blooming of the reticle. Only complaint might be the size and weight,but even that is really just being picky. Compared to the micro red dots it's big but not much bigger than an Eotech or Aimpoint 4. Anyone else's have one?

I'd love to try out that Vortex. Purged myself of EO Techs a few years ago and more recently of my Aimpoints, still looking for a replacement.

Use the Vortex a few times, and then please let me know if you like it. It's been on my want list a while.

That looks awesome. I can't wait for people's feedback on these. Looks like a contender for people moving away from Eotechs and such. Is the view port as big as an eotech?

I've heard you can get crazy good deals on the Vortex UH-1 from private Vortex dealer individuals. If I wanted to upgrade the optics on my current PCCs, they would be high on the list for the prices I've heard.

The other one I like is the Mepro RDS. and while it's really quite good, the warranty situation (1 year!) is just not acceptable for the current prices. I mean, FFS, I get a longer warranty than that with my cheaper Chinese-made Holosight and PA optics. The CAA Hartman MH1 has a similar problem (albeit with a two year warranty).

I would throw the Holosun 510C in there as competition to judge against as well - though cheaper.

I had a Mepro RDS, it flickered heavily under recoil. Meprolight wasn't very good about refunding me despite continued promises and eventually I had to do a chargeback to get my money back.
