Hi LT,

Thanks for sharing your pictures. You might try aiming at a darker back ground to get a better view of the Ring and Dot.

I'm going to mount it to my Hi-Point carbine. Or a cat; I'll mount it to one of my cats.

Just ordered a 507c from Optics Planet. With a coupon code it was $30 off (10%). No sales tax and free shipping. About the best deal I could find. Now I just have to wait for my SFX to get here and we can have some fun.

I torqued the 507C to spec, 8.25 lbs...
Hey @LT USN (Ret.) ...that seems too low!!

The Holosun HS 507c manual I found states 1.7 Nm to 2.2Nm for the recommended torque setting.
Converting that to inch pounds (in lbs) is 15 - 19.5.

Here's the link to the manual I found, page 21 has the technical details listed.
https://www.holosun.eu/files/HS_507C_manual_rz_web.pdf

My DPP was 25 in lbs.

Don't want to see you lose a screw like I did!!!!!
I thought I had mine pretty tight until I lost a screw and then bought the Wheeler. Based on the 25 in lbs spec for mine, I was surprised at how tight that actually was compared to my "hand guestimate"!

Most scope mounts are at 25 inch pounds. Usually go 20 myself with no problems. Allows for differences in torque wrenches.

Don’t know much about them, not sure if lowest price.

Seems like a pretty good deal. Wish I would have see that. Still, I only paid maybe $10 more.

Grabagun is fine to deal with. At least, the one purchase I've made from them of a Ruger .300 BLK bolt gun.

I have had a big issue with them. I no longer order firearms from them but do order magazines and other stuff. I quote firearm deals here but I’ll order elsewhere even if it’s more. They lost a five figure customer over the years. (no joke folks)

I’ll leave it at that.

I paid $226 out the door from TheGunDock.Com. I searched in gundeals.com and they listed an "request a quote via e-mail". They price came back as $219 + shipping. SOLD!

That is a great price. Currently shows out of stock though. If it was in stock I'd definitely pick one up and return my order to Optics Planet

The Gun Dock typically has a nice price on the DPP as well - you just have to add to cart to see it. :)
