hey folks,

im going to buy an aimpoint h1 or t1 in the near future.
didnt really know if i want to pay about 150$ more for the t1, cause i got a sweet deal on an h1.

im searching for a good mount with co-witness.
the mount from daniel defense for example are only for 1/3.
mounts like american defense do produce co-witness, but they are only tagged for using with an T and not an H...
do they also work with H1?!

best would be, if you suggest me the best bang for the buck H1 mount and T1 mount Co-Witness!

thx very much!!!

Larue all the way!

Im currently installing my mount right now on my h1.



Colton hooked me up with some hardcore freebies!

I actually had the H-1 with a VMX-3t 3x magnifier. I also had the daniel defense Aimpoint Micro Lower 1/3rd mount. Unless you really want QD I would suggest the DD mount. It is very lightweight at 1.7oz and it is extremely durable and good looking (very slim profile and mounts to picatinny perfectly w/o movement). Also, as I have read and experienced 1st hand with the mount, you really want to lower 1/3rd witness the mount because of the smaller optic size compared to the aimpoint pro. Absolute co-witness takes a good portion of visual field which actually hinders the quickness and your reaction time. I would say Absolute co-witness if you had a full size or a slightly more compact red-dot but with the micro Aimpoint i would highly suggest the Daniel Defense mount.

Buy the h1 from larue with mount. It is a good price when u buy both.

The t1 has settings to work with night vision.

thx for the answers!

1) are the mounts (larue, dd, american defense) made for H1 AND T1?

2) i got a sweet deal for this one aimpoint h1 without mount
where can i get the screws for installing it on a mount?! or are they included when buying the mount/aimpoint

3) 1/3 cowittness: do i need to rise my cheek away from the weapon?

thx!!!

1) the T1 and H1 use the same mounts.
2) I know my American Defense mount came with screws.
3) You need to slightly raise your cheek (head). Not a big deal. I have both type of mounts. I use absolute on my 30mm aimpoints and the lower 1/3 on the micros (even without a fixed front sight). Seems easier to use with the smaller 20mm tube.

I think the lower 1/3 mounts are 7mm higher. don't quote me on that though.

I just use the Aimpoint LRP mount with the riser. It works great.
