Ordered an ADM 30mm Recon-H (high mount) to run on my 18" SPR.
Has anyone else used this setup? Will be used with a Burris RT6 1-6.

Seems to me that with a high mount, I don't have to crane my neck down as far to see through the scope.

Aero - It's an AD Recon-H, 1.9" ---- can you explain why higher is worse?

THanks

It's my "do-all" rifle: HD, 3-gun, Plinking - with emphasis on HD.

Before we go down that path, no, I can't use red dots 2/2 bad astigmatism.

So I wouldn't recommend it with anything that has a picky eyebox if you want to do prone shooting.

At 1x from the low ready or high ready, etc., it is great. I don't have to "turtle" my head at all, I just hold my head straight up, bring the the rifle up and POP my reticle appears with both eyes open just like a read dot. It's easier to be consistent this way, instead of moving two things (gun and my face) I just move one of them, so I've cut my potential variables in half there. I think it's definitely faster when at 1x magnification and standing unsupported. It pairs marvelously with a FFP low power variable, I personally lose almost no time compared to a red dot (likely because the hardware isn't the limiting factor, I am).

For better or for worse, this is what my shooting position looks like with the high mount. Some competition shooters will point out ten things I'm doing wrong here but for the level of shooter I am, this is what a 1.93" looks like in action.

It's simple. An AR15 stock is designed to put your cheek and therefore your eye, in line with the fixed A2 front sight which is about 1.5" above the top of the rail. Stock, cheek, eye and sight, all in a straight line.

I have only one higher mounted scope. It is a very large, long 6-24x50mm target scope that has a 4" sunshade screwed into the front. That sunshade extends so far forward on a 16" barrel that it would not clear a folded front sight. I had to raise it to clear the folded sight. My cheek weld is not ideal because of that, but it's the only way I could get the scope on the rifle. That is a 1.93" high Larue LT-135. It is used for match ammo load development and very precise benchrest type target shooting.

That scope comes off during normal duty on that rifle and is replaced by a scope that matches my cheek weld, a mid powered scope in a Larue LT-104 with "standard" 1.5" height. My eye lines up with the center of the scope eyepiece when my cheek is down on the stock.

1.9X” mounts are a thing, mostly for fast shooting like 3-gun mimicking a RDS up close and a ‘heads up’ style shooting. I’ve always used just regular 1.5” mounts, and I’d definitely consider that the way to go for any other style of shooting, and is probably a better option for many that fancy themselves speed shooters as well.

Yup, mounting LPV Optics higher is becoming a thing for some.

I love high mounts. Less craning of the neck, more comfortable shooting imo

Get a sidecharger and 0.5" cheek riser to go with it.
