    C-More railway: polymer or aluminum?

    I am looking for a 12 MOA RDS for for steel challenge. Which would be better, the aluminum or polymer model? What is the difference between the click and the standard switch? Thanks.

    The aluminum model is a lot less likely to crack so if your budget allows for it, get that one. The click switch has detents on the switch for the dot intensity. That way you can always turn it to the same brightness that you like. The standard switch is just a rheostat so it's you just turn it more to go brighter or back to go dimmer.

    Hi!

    Me, for steel challenge - and the lighter loads you're going to shoot - I'd stick with polymer. They're surprisingly tough and you keep that gun lighter for less momentum swinging plate to plate.

    C-more came out with the aluminum versions when they started selling the Railway to cops for AR-15s that got tossed into the trunks of squad cars so they needed something a little tougher.
    I doubt your steel challenge gun is going to be abused in the same manner.

    Click is definitely the way to go over the rheostat version; it may be more expensive, but you'll have an easy, positive, repeatable brightness setting with the defined positions of the switch.

    Aluminum models only come with the click switch.

    Thanks for the question!
    Sean.

    Thanks for the responses.

    Sean, what does the warranty cover on those sights? Is it like the Vortex or Burris warranty?

    I'm not familiar with Burris and Vortex's warranties, sorry.

    Rather than me paraphrasing and possibly making an error, it's best you get the details direct from C-more. Their warranty is here:

    I've noticed that the out-of-warranty repairs from C-more are usually pretty inexpensive.

    I have three friction adjust poly C.More's on open guns a 38 Super and a 9x21 and a railway on a 40CZ Champion all well used for years no problems. Have a look at the reflex RTS2 just got one from Freedom put it on a 9mm pin gun with a frame mount the sight is nothing short of fantastic beats my Vortex and Burris sights all to hell.

    I would get one in 12 MOA if they made it.

    I thought the same but I tried the 8min and it works well for pins.
