Made my own Offset C More Mount

Recommended Posts

I did use a Dawson blast sheild. Got to take a ball end mill and put a concave radius on the underside of the overhang above the thumbrest. 

 

Offsets the CMore .225"

That came out great. Did you make the thumb rest also?

Broncman,
Where is the blast shield?
Where exactly did you mill the radius and why?
And why does the mount require an offset?
There is so much I don't know about CMore optics mounting.

The Blast sheild is the angle piece in front of the CMore to sheild the lens from the muzzle blast and gasses from the ports.

 

Right above the thumbrest, you will see the edge of the mount sticks out a little all the way down the length of the scope base. Radiused that so it would be easier on my thumb.

 

When shooting 9 Major, they are infamous for ejection issues and setting the sight over to the side gives you more room for ejection so cases do not hit the bottom of the mount.

Thanks Broncman. I learned a lot

 

I priced the CZ OEM CM mount at $150; no wonder you made your own.

 

Did you make the thumb rest also?

 

Good work, looks great!

I like the bigger window of the slide ride and the first major match I attended shooting CO I watched 2 of the RTS2's die midmatch.

Too expensive for the reliability issues o have saw.

 

I would run my Vortex before an RTS

I'm looking for an optic solution adding a red dot to my CZ TSO. Too bad the CzechMate mount and Slideride don't fit the TSO. It doesn't clear the top of the slide.

I don't have the tools to do what you did.

Thanks for your help.

Very cool ,I wish more companies would offer a mount with thrumb rest. Im not a fan on how much the thumb rest can stick out from the side of the gun.

Thanks guys! Shot my first falling steel match today! Had a blast. So fun having a pistol that runs! No issues since the new mount (and ejector).

Nice.

 

I was about to do the same, but just bought the Cheely Side Mount for my Cmore.

 

How important is the red dot in relation to the center bore? If the CMore is off the center line of the Barrel by 1/8". Would that cause an offset left/right at a longer distance?

The offset makes very little difference at the distances we shoot . The vertical offeset from the bore makes more of a difference!

Exactly. At longer / shorter distances it may make a bullet hit a bit left or right, but we aren't shooting Bullseye competitions. The vertical offset can mean several inches shift in POA / POI between 1 yard and  25 yards.

By not being in line with the bore, the optical axis crosses the bore line at only the zero point. This would kinda suck with a long distance rifle but with a pistol, it is negligible. See the estimate below for a 20 yard zero. This error would be covered by even a 1 MOA dot 😉
