    Alright... I went ahead and took them off my HD guns to start. Strange... such a small change but quite liberating. I bet this is what the bra-burning women in the 1960's felt like.

    Yeah. Those things don't belong on a house gun.

    Glass

    The covers on the 515 series are glass too.

    I have a pro on my bedside rifle, clear lens cover on the rear, solid on the front. We live fairly rural, lots of dust. Iíve tried covers off and they just get coated. Any suggestions?

    Not really. That's just the limitation of optics. I just wipe my Comp M3 with a soft Tshirt when it gets dusty.

    Glass for the transparent section is great for clarity and scratch resistance, terrible for impact resistance; I suspect that Aimpoint uses polycarbonate, which has poor optical clarity and scratch resistance, but excellent impact resistance. For my uses, I would much, much rather have the polycarbonate than the glass.
    Plus Áa change, plus c'est la mÍme chose.

    Thats the point. Coat the cover, not the lense.

    Yes. Its sacrificial and durability > clarity. If you need it, flip it up and you have 100% clarity and sight picture.
