Mounts

Post by Devereaux on Tue Sep 26, 2017 11:42 pm

Just bought a Vortex 1-9 30mm illum reticle scope which I plan on using on an AR. But I don't have mounts.

?Anyone have bulletproof rings to use on a flattop AR.

I've had very good luck with the cantalivered design for AR-15s. They push the scope forward, providing the necessary eye relief.

Vortex makes a damn good design:

I've got a couple of theirs. Also saw Vortex has released a Precision Series of cantilevered mounts. (I suppose Doc would say cantileeevered mounts.) One even has a sorely needed 20 MOA preset cantilever. I'd stay away from the quick release mounts though - they all loosen up with enough rounds.

The Burris P.E.P.R. is also a very good cantilevered mount.

Gonna need a range report for your 1-9!

Thanks for the steer, CF.

May be a while for the range report. I bought the scope because it was on sale and looked good. I still have a Vortex red dot to try out. I am becoming less amoured with my Eo’s so perhaps I”ll try it on one of my 5.56’s and see how it works. Would really like to get back to Aimpoints though.

But no specific gun for the scope. Thinking of building a .223 Wylde.

I was building a DMR with a 20" Krieger barrel with a .223 Wylde chamber -- before the move. Now, I'm -- looking for my gunsmithing tools. And my primary computer. <sigh> The gun is designed around the M262 77gr Sierra Match round.  Should be an honest 600 yard shooter, while being capable of using the 55gr FMJBTs in a pinch.

I use the cantilever rings/mounts also. I've had good luck with the burris p.e.p.r ones as well as the vortex ones.

Hmmm. I may have to get a set of rings just to mount the scope on a frame. Be kool. No rest of the weapon, but at least the frame and scope. Could even put a BCG in it.
