    Ordered an Aimpoint Micro H-1 2MOA/M4 Mount Combo from LaRue Tactical. Should me here tomorrow (Tuesday). Hope all the great things I have read are true.

    What is the difference between the H-1 and the T-1? I can't seem to find that information.

    t1 has night vision settings, so dot does not glow too bright when see through the optic with night vision goggles.

    op: did you order 2moa or 4moa?

    I ordered the 2MOA. Also I figured I didn't need the night vision settings of the T1 so that's why I went with the H1

    Do you leave yours on 24/7 as recommended?

    I have read that some folks consider the H1, not having four or five dot settings that are too dim to see without NV, is actually the more practical optic to use under normal conditions because the brightness control is a little more fine.

    Also I went with the absolute co-witness mount. Partially because I like that set up with folding sights and part because I like the sight mounted as low as practical.

    nice choice on 2moa.

    if you have bad eye sights, using iron peep sight will help you see the dot more clearly (sharp dot). without it's going to be look like tangled string.

    The 3x magnifier also clears up that tangled string too.

    Just got it. Looks great on the rifle. Open sights are zeroed at 100 yards so it just took a few clicks of windage on the H1 to get it lined up to the open sights. I figured that will get me very close as a start point. Hope to get it out this week. Thanks for all the good suggestions!
    I feel like I'm doing something wrong by leaving it on... But in a good way.

    I'm looking to get a similar set-up. Where did you buy yours? The T-1 and Larue QD LT751 absolute co-witness mount looks to be running about $650. The H-1 version is about $610. Was hoping to find it on sale somewhere.

    Got the whole set up at LaRue for about $660. I think with 2 day shipping. Very happy with it so far.

    As others have said in other threads, LaRue customer service is the best. I placed my order but realized that I would be away when it was scheduled to arrive. I was able to get them on the phone and make the delivery change without hassle.

    Thinking of this very thing myself. Have you tried removing and re-installing it to determine if the mount returns to zero?

    I have a USO in a Bobro mount, and I did a QR mount specifically so I could remove it for cleaning.

    I have not done an absolute test like that yet but but I have high hopes for the mount. Seems to be a precision piece.
