Yep and usually it's when we need them most.

Re: Horus Vision ASLI. It is any good?

I've got to be honest here. I've owned two. First was the picatinny mount (didn't fit), the second was a scope mount. I had to file off some teeth from the rail to get it to fit w/ low rings. Both would not hold a bubble on level. As soon as I changed vertical angle of the rifle (tilting up and down on the bipod), the bubble would go off level. I checked it against a torpedo level on the scope. The torpedo level would stay level horizontally, but the ASLI would change. I couldn't figure out why I always had to add more windage to the scope than what it called for on my solutions. I ended up ordering a level off this sight. It is a much better option. The angle/cos was off too. It is a sealed unit, so you can't calibrate it to your rifle. Savageshtr had one, and the machining was terrible. He couldn't keep it clamped tight because the screw bottomed out before it was tight enough to hold the ASLI.

Re: Horus Vision ASLI. It is any good?

I bought one several yrs ago.... came with the supplied pic rail clamp. The pic rail clamp would not hold (iddy biddy little screw) at any reasonable torque level on my 16lb braked 338 RUM. One trip to the range & it would slide forward.... the Unit didn't sit level in the clamp, which was annoying at worst. I ordered the ring mount thinking "it can't be worse, right?" Wrong, I open my reasonably priced package to find an aluminum, pot metal casting of a ring worm turd.... I think a mount made of Lego's would have been stronger Then I find out that the clamp bottoms out before it engaged the dovetail of the ASLI.... to the DREMEL you go!! Yeah it worked, but after discovering the FlatLine Ops, the Horus has went down the road...

The ASLI was pretty well made, the mounts on the other hand....

Re: Horus Vision ASLI. It is any good?

I have one that is a couple years old and I don't use it. It has a rail mount that didn't hold very well AND setting the screw just dug a hole in my rail. When I tried to "adapt" it to another mount, I found it had a different dovetail. It would fit together but the machined angles were different.

My preference is for the "Flatline Ops" products. They fit right and once setup properly, they don't move. I'm using them on several .223s, a 7mm RM, a 300WM, and a 308. All are where I originally set them including the 308 which experienced a bit of rough handling when I took a nasty tumble off an ATV last year. Character marks were added to the rifle, "road rash" applied to the operator and an ego was severely dented were the only wounds received. I don't think the plastic housing of the ASLI would have faired as well.
