    I had issues with the QRP mount on a PRO coming loose during shooting. I read some recommendations to just bear down on the knob and force it to go tighter than the torque click-off naturally would go. That helped a bit, but in my opinion it's just a bandaid and not acceptable for an optic mount.

    I think the PRO itself is a fine optic when mated to another mount (Geissele, ADM, etc.). It is, however, unnecessarily large for what it is these days.

    Nothing that I have noticed. I run quals most days of the week and we have a mix of mostly Eotechs and 50 Aimpoint pro's. I would say the optics get more abuse in the racks in the station being banged around at shift change more than the 6 foot drop test. I haven't seen any massive shifts from duty use. I would say considering the average officer's skill at our 100 yard qual course, I wouldn't really notice 3 clicks David

    Break a Grant for a DECENT mount. ANY mount NOT named "QRP" will be an improvement.
    - Either you're part of the problem or you're part of the solution or you're just part of the landscape - Sam (Robert DeNiro) in, "Ronin" -

    I'm actually a fair bit more accurate at 100yds with irons than I am with an Aimpoint, but also slower, hence why even though I tend to use a 100 yard zero I generally start zeroing an Aimpoint at 50yards, get it hitting consistently a bit low on a 3" bullseye then check it at 100 to make sure the groups are landing be where I want them.
