Is an A.R.M.S. #22M68 mount and a A.R.M.S. #38 swan sleeve a good way to go when mounting an Aimpoint? Will it co-witness? Thanks in advance...LL

that is similar to how i have all mine mounted. i think it looks better than the spacer. o have mine mount on the arms 38 and the others are on arms sir ff. i like it this way others will say different. the aimpoint arms will cowitness perfectly

lol i was thinking the same thing

I was wondering the same thing. I've read that the LaRue mount puts the dot right on top of the front sight. Does the ARMS mount do the same? I've heard good things about the LaRue mount but I still like the looks of the ARMS setup better.

Gregw45 what type of mount is that that is the one I am looking for
Link Posted: 9/19/2004 9:51:54 PM EST
It's the ARMS #22M68 with Cantilever extension.

I have one, too.

Where is a good place to get that mount

Those who have the ARMS mount: When you throw the lever to tighten the mount, does it get pretty solid? Does it feel loose or anything like that? I thought I read somewhere that the ARMS mounts aren't as sturdy on non ARMS rails (like there own forerams/rails or bigger or something and there mounts where ment for those).

My ARMS mount works flawlessly on my Bushy M4A3 upper.

It's not loose, yet not so tight I have to use a breaking device to get it off.

That gooseneck mount doesn't get the scope up too high to get a good cheek weld, does it?

ARMS can modify your mount to accomidate either, but then you're making your mount non-standard too, so it won't be easily moved from one gun to another. (This is the part where the LaRue folks talk about the LaRue's adjustable throwlevers...)

Thanks for that info. Anyone know what the width of the rail should be? I have a mic and could measure mine to see how close to spec it is.

My 2nd question is regarding the cowitnessing of the ARMS mount with an Aimpoint. I believe the LaRue mount is 1.60" high (which is suppost to put the dot directly above the front sight). How does the ARMS #22M68 plus #38 sleeve compare?

All of the mounts shown in this thread are designed to cowitness the optic with the iron sights. What that means is that the optic is mounted at about the same height as the irons so that if the optic fails in any way you can look through the optic while using the irons.

If you insist on using the shame-point, LaRue mounts are the best. Actually, that goes for most other optics as well.

Head over to the optics forum and do a little searching.

Grant,

I fixed the picture for you.

Does anyone have a picture of an Aimpoint/22M68 on an #39 carry-handle rail co-witnessed? Will it co-witness OK without a spacer? I've looked thru the optics forum and elsewhere and can't find one.

Ok got the aimpoint mounts down so what about a mount for a PVS14 setup can you mount it so it will cowitness with the aimpoint and irons if so what mounts?

I have the GGG Cantilever Aimpoint mount and it is one of the better mounts out there in my opinion- sturdy as all hell, holds a spare battery, and places the aimpoint in perfect position. I also think its the best looking cantilever mount out there right now. A bit pricey though, get one used if you can.

What type of BUIS is that. This is my first aimpoint and believe it or not I had never heard of LaRue mounts. Might be cool to have my name on my gun though..

I have been wanting to add optics to my M4gery and have been reading as much as I can on the subject. My original plan was to use a #38 sleeve with a 22M68. Then I read a post by Pat Rogers on Tatical Forums and he suggested that a mount on a mount is not the best solution. I am starting to like the cantilever more and more. What do you guys think that jave each setup?

Thanks

Lumpy and others steered me to LaRue when i was looking for a mount. Am very glad I went with their advice.

There is nothing at all wrong with the original
Aimpoint QRP mount that came with my M2.
I like it.
