I am going to order an EOTech and can't decide if I should get a Larue mount or just put it on the flat-top. What are the pros and cons of each? I did a search but could not find the info I need.

One problem that seems to arise from the EO using the factory mount is that it seems to lose zero. From what I have heard is that sometimes the mount stretches a bit and wont hold completely tight. I know 3 people that have had the problem and have swapped to a GG&G mount. They now have absolutely no more problems and love them.

I really like my LaRue EOTech mount. It puts the reticle just about the top of my front sight. I have since replaced the LMT BUIS with a Troy folding rear BUIS. There is nothing to obstruct my view of the EOTech.

If for some reason you don't like the LaRue riser, I'll bet that some one on the EE will scarf it up before you can shut your computer down.

Have fun!

I have mine mounted directly on the rail and like it.

If I get some spare cash, I might try out a Larue mount sooner or later.

I'm one of those people that needs the riser for the EOTech to fit me right. I'm an Aimpoint guy anyway, though.

Mine sits right on top of the receiver and has been there for over a year. No issues with it and I have no intentions of changing it.

It is personal preference. I had mine mounted flat onto the my A4 upper and just did not like the sight picture (it distracted my eye). So I went with the RRA Dominator, raised it to the perfect height, still can use the irons, but the FOV is clear. A lot of FOV problems can be solved with consistently shooting and training though, I just do not have the time, so the mount was easier.

I switch between a 3 x 9 scope and an Eotech so the Larue mount really helps in my case.
Quick and easy on and off and retains zero.

Mine rides bareback with no problems.
but that's my own preference.

I prefer my 552 directly on the rail. This way I keep the same cheekweld when shooting with my EOTech and my BUIS.

When I use my EOTech, with both eyes open and focusing on the target, the front sight ghosts out and I never even notice it.

Even when using this technique some people still have issues with the front sight. If you're one of them then the raised mount might help.

ill take the larue mount. I cant stand the front sight in the middle of the fun box.

Mine sits directly on the reciever rail.

Also have had no problems with it losing zero after mounting/remounting. But then again I don't use a +4 Gorilla strength to tighten it down, so I don't think I'm going to "stretch" it or whatever else is supposedly causing them to not return to zero.

Thanks for the input. I see that G & R Tactical has a package that comes with a Larue mount. I think that's the way I am going to go and if I don't like the mount I can sell it and not be out any extra $$$.

Jury is still out on the Dominator and Accucam combo...but I like the added height, it puts the fixed BUIS in the bottom 1/3 of the glass which works really well:

I am much happier after moving my 552 from the flattop to the LaRue mount.
Link Posted: 9/30/2005 8:50:34 AM EDT
could the back end of the larue mount be used for the GI PVS-14 weps mount?
Link Posted: 9/30/2005 9:09:51 AM EDT
I think that's what it's desgned for.
