Looking for a Great Quick Release Scope Mount, Stop Here
I purchased this mount to put my Vortex PST Gen II 1-6 scope on my Daniel Defense M4. First, let me say the quality of this mount is right there with the best of them. I believe the Quick Release assemblies are American Defense. The scope has a lower ring and upper ring half arrangement, which I prefer over the side by side. The scope and the mount remained in place and on target with hundreds of rounds down the barrel. If I release the mount and reinstall it, the scope remains on target. All in all I believe it was a good purchase.
Precision built, easy off and returns to zero
I installed this mount on an AR15 carbine using a Vortex 1 x 4 viper PST. I was concerned about having the mount tight enough not to move but loose enough to remove quickly and still return to zero. I adjusted the mount tension to be easily removable and sighted it in @ 100 yards. I then dialed up the scope and engaged a 12" steel plate @ 350 yards hitting it reliably. I removed the mount/scope and proceeded to sight in my BUIS. When I remounted the scope/mount, I engaged the 350-yard plate again, hitting it every time. Upon inspection, I noticed that the mount's cross bolts were only .004" smaller than the Picatinny slots in the receiver, and there was zero back and forth movement when the mount was installed before being locked down. It would seem that this precision aids in the mount's ability to return to zero. The mount put the scope at the correct height for use with my MagPul BUIS, which was an important consideration. The Vortex 1 x 4 viper PST mounted with perfect spacing between the rings and turrets, putting the ocular in the correct position for my eye.
At first, I was confused at the directions, but after playing for it and tightening the mount on my m1a, this mount had a nice solid lock-up, including the lock-up for the quick release. Excellent product. I have it pared with my vortex HST scope
I bought this for my Viper HST Gen II, and I am impressed! As a machinist with 25 years, I am VERY impressed with the quality and the precision! I like the solid lock-up and the secondary locks on the flip mounts that will ensure it stays that way! Pricey? Yes. Build like a tank? Definitely!
