    As for the eye relief, normally Vortex shoots on the low end and it’s better than expected. 2.6” on a 45/70 won’t be an issue, the issue will be on the RDB the rail will put the optic closer to 3.5” with it being mounted fully back on the rail.

    Personally I have lots of options on what these can go on and they look to be an awesome optic I won’t be sad if they don’t do exactly what I want.
    Sounds good let me know! haha and enjoy!

    It looks like the approx 1" cantilever should make up the difference for you....

    These next generation smaller and lighter low power prismatic optics look great!

    Completely different optic type, these are more for fast “bac” type aiming, like (insert well known military optic here)
    I tried everything and a prism is so much lighter (I dunno how much this weights though) that if you can master bac aiming, there is no need for an lpvo and its size and delicacy and complications

    It's the nature of prism optics. Eye relief is very short. That's why ACOGs are as far back on the receiver as possible.

    You can't go wrong with these. I bought a spitfire used and wanted the low mount for it and vortex shipped me one no questions asked. There is noone that does warranty/customer service like vortex.

    These fixed optics with etched retilces should be pretty reliable but you could run offset irons if you wanted backups and with the 5X the sights would be handy for up close shooting.
    The mount looks pretty standard and could be swapped out for quick release or a torx key in your kit would probably take under 30 seconds to remove.

    The 1 moa clicks is courser then I'd like.... I wonder why they did that?

    The price is like most things today.... more! At least it comes with improvements ( if you like the weight and size reduction)
