It certainly looks very bulky. Luckily, it doesn’t feel much different, the optic window is just bigger and sits lower. Originally, it took me quite a bit of practice to get used to the higher sitting red dot on my Target and Lite. I’m excited to see if I like this or not.

As for extra weight; the polymer C-More weighs in at 3oz. The Venom I used before is 1.1oz, before the stock picatinny base clamp. ~2oz for the Venom w/ clamp seems like a safe bet. The Striplin 90* mount probably adds some weight, but I also removed the factory picatinny rail to mount the Striplin. Everything looks gigantic, but feels about the same.

Finally, this would probably be a pain to match with the right holster. Fortunately, it’s for Steel Challenge Rimfire Pistol Open, so I can use a “pistol rug” carry bag.

Thanks!
