    Just put this on a few weeks ago. Got to the range to zero it today. Bright sun and an iPhone for a camera. EGW mount.

    I have a similar JPoint on my XDm 3.8 9mm carry gun.

    I like it a lot, but the plastic screen is very easy to scratch.

    Two hand unsupported regularly 2" 10 shot group sat 25 yards single action, 3" double action. There were some groups with a 4-5" flyer, but the main groups stayed tight. The dot covered the 1" black bull on my targets.

    Clay birds on the hill at 30-40 yards were toast. Same with the smaller pieces. Not a hit every shot, but only very small fragments when i called it a day.

    I'm 60 with aging eyes but good hands and arms, no shaking yet.

    I have installed a Wolff spring kit in the gun, full power main and 14 pound rebound. Buff and polish the internals. No work on the sear.

    I ordered another Burris, with a S&W rail and a 1911 mount. Wonder how it would work on the 1 1/2" Les Baer?
