    Talk to me about the Millet DMR optic

    I am currently in the beginning phases of building myself a mid-length AR carbine. Giving a brief synopsis of my goals, BCM 14.5 upper with a pinned A2 flash-hider (to avoid NFA), on probably a BCM blem lower, with Magpul furniture.

    So, in beginning to research optics, I have been looking at the Millet DMR, which I think would be a good addition to this style rifle. The magnification seems appropriate for close up to 5-600 meters. It has a red dot feature for low light close in purposes.

    Does anyone have any experience with this optic? How is the durability? What kind of batteries does it take, and how long is the battery life? Is the clarity acceptable for actual use? Can I be co-witnessed with irons?

    Thanks for any input you have about the optic.

    It uses a 2032 and has storage space for a spare one under turret cap. It is clear amd of good quality, but it's too long to use with a BUIS rear on mine. I have one on my Stag lefty on QD mounts from somebody so if I need BUIS I can just take it off. I haven't used it more than 250 rounds at a time for a class but so far it's durable. I use it bouncing around the car and for teaching at the gunshop and plan on it for a hog hunt soon.

    I appreciate that, and down the road may consider the offer. But right now I don't even have a lower in my hands yet. I am still in the research/gathering funds stage.

    Superhouse, how does battery life seem to you? I'm not expecting the 50,000 hours of an Aimpoint, but how often do you change out the battery in yours?

    Well, I've left in on overnight a few times and that didn't kill it.

    Might take a look at the new Leupold VX-R Patrol.
