I posted this in the optics form but got little response:
I want to get a good tight fitting A2 carry handle scope mount but don't want to spend more than I need to. The ARMS one is around $50 yet many other companies like RRA offer what looks to be the same thing for half the price or less. What do you recommend? What do you have?

If you buy a $12 scope mount you will have a $12 scope mount. Quality does cost money. I just purchased an ARMS #39A2 Plus for my Bushmaster. With it I have the option of mounting optics on the top of the carry handle or low in front to cowitness the iron sights. Spend a little money and get something that will last as long as the weapon and work well. Sarge

Being partial to the A2, I've tried different carry handle mounts. Most wouldn't hold a repeatable zero so taking them off was always a bad idea, you spent more time rezeroing than enjoying... I caught a Leupold in the face when the locknug came loose one afternoon long ago on a Kwik-Site... The ARMS #2 is a few bucks, but it's the only mount that works as advertised...

I know a flat top is much better and I am sure that I will get one some time but I dont think it will be too soon. So Does the ARMS #2 mount work? I dont want to buy a $60 mount and then find out that it does not stay on and hold zero.

I use the ARMS #2 and it works great.

I like the Smith Enterprises mount.
