Sr22 with Vortex Viper



Log in to see fewer ads
Finally got around to mounting my red dot sight, and boy was it worth it. After purchasing a mounting plate from Galloway precision, I didn't care for the iron sights, so I cut them off. I removed the rear sight on my Sr22 and mounted the plate. Tightening the set screws I noticed that the plate dipped down in the front, which would automatically shoot the low. So I found a shim thick enough to level the mounting plate. Secured it to the plate with a dab of gorilla glue, and let it rest on the top of the slide. I then mounted a Vortex Viper. Waited a day for the lock tight to dry, and off to the range. Wow, what a difference it made. 200 rounds, 2 FTC, and stayed zeroed in.

I did the same thing on my wife’s back in December. I also cut off the uprights and shimmed hers. I could zero it without a shim but it was at the end of vertical adjustment so I opted to add the shim which put my zero back near the center. Only difference is I put a Burris FF3 on. Got over a thousand rounds through it and it is still solid and zeroed.
