I don't know whether to love or hate Larue for constantly upgrading his products. Y'know what I mean?
Link Posted: 7/24/2005 3:15:18 PM EDT
I'm thinking LaRue should issue version numbers for all their stuff. As noted, they upgrade/improve their shit so often that if you see for instance a "LaRue Aimpoint Mount" on the EE, you really have no idea what you're getting.

I'm serious here.

Nice - thanks for the pics!

When will this improved version be availble since I need an Aimpoint mount and I like the locking lever (I have an SPR mount with it )?

So, when will these be in stock?

Good thing I've been putting off the aimpoint/mount purchase.

For once, procrastinating has worked out in my favor. If I'd have bought the original style, I'd be wanting to get this one now. Maybe by the time I get around to replacing my ARMS #22M68, Larue will have an even better model available.

I was late getting on the LaRue bandwagon, but I certainly regret that decision now. The products are a cut above anything else on the market. Every single LaRue product I own is absolutely flawless, both in its design and construction.
Link Posted: 7/24/2005 5:17:56 PM EDT
Sweet.
Link Posted: 7/24/2005 5:20:38 PM EDT
Any reasons why Larue wanted to make some of these imrpovements? The new battery compartment seems like a really neat feature as does the retention system. I also like how the caps won't hit your BUIS when flipped downward which is really a neat feature. I do not understand why LaRue made one of the rings built directly into the mount. Were users having their rings break off of the mount? What I mean to say is that did any customer feedback go into the making of this mount? If so, what are some of the problems on the older style that users can look out for until they can save to buy the newer versions?

Its cool an all. Great to see a company "improving" their products.

But how much are these "improvements" going to cost?

The old mount worked, the new mount will work. I am just wondering how much it will cost us in the end. I can live without a spare battery compartment if it saves me $20.

Will they still offer the old style? When does the new design replace the older one?

Have been looking at the Larue mount pretty hard over the ARMS.
Link Posted: 7/24/2005 5:27:55 PM EDT
that's cool!


i like the idea of the integrated side ring and the spare battery, all of it is nice actually

cool... i'm glad that larue doesn't stop and get complacent with the current designs... looks like some good improvements...
Link Posted: 7/24/2005 7:01:30 PM EDT
Sight height above bore is still the same right?
Link Posted: 7/24/2005 7:14:02 PM EDT
is there any estimation on when larue's going to be applying the same features to other mounts? solid one ring etc.... to the SPR mount? etc? Thanks!

You should see around a $20-$30 dollar price increase on all LT mounts in the near future. The Aimpoint DBM retails at $33 so it a complete wash as far as I am concerned. LT will NOT be making the older model.

Shit, now I just need to find a dealer with the rail and straight mount in stock tomorrow.

Hey Grant,

Will these sit up even or flush with the top of the receiver like the cantilever does? In your pictures it looks like it might sit one slot further forward.

When will these start showing up?

Grant - will this new style be available in the RAS II specific mount as well?

Is the throw lever locking mechanism going to be standard for all other civilian throw lever mounts (i.e. 4XDOS...), or still just a "Military-Only" item?
Link Posted: 7/27/2005 3:27:02 AM EDT
Link Posted: 7/27/2005 5:43:34 AM EDT
Well, I don't think my LaRue mounts came with any instructions, so it did take me some tinkering (all fun to me) to get it right. My first order from Grant did come with a LaRue bottle opener, so I forgive them
Link Posted: 7/28/2005 5:01:08 PM EDT
The new Aimpoint mount is on my must have list. I look at the additional battery compartment on the mount as a second spare cause I'm the kind of guy who would be anal enough to also have the Aimpoint battery module too.

The thing on the throw lever that says "open", is that something that can be retrofitted onto existing mounts? If so, will Mr. Larue make these available?

Will this design find its way to the LaRue Cantilever Aimpoint Mount?

Thanks for the scoop Grant. I'll be needing one soon.

I have a Larue Aimpoint low mount for my RAS II upper. They are not kidding when they say 100% repeat zero. All my future mounts will Larue.

I have plenty of ARMS mounts and must state I never had any problems with repeat zero or coming loose. Then again, I don't beat on them like some of the serious tactical shooters do.
Link Posted: 7/29/2005 5:56:07 PM EDT
So are they here yet? My Aimpoint is getting lonely.

Yes. All LT levers will EVENTUALLY see the locking system.

Sorry for the confusion. I meant the built in ring for the Aimpoint.

The reason it was put there was because of strength. The other benefit of it being there is if it were to come loose the rail would hold the battery compartment closed.

In a combat situation, you wouldn't be changing your battery out if your Aimpoint went dead. You would transition to your BUIS's and stay in the fight (call me old fashioned).



C4

If you start changing the battery in the middle of a fire fight then thats darwin at work. I meant if you dont have access to a range immediately to verify zero why remove the mount just to get a battery? Since this will be done in the rear why not just grab one out of the box? I like LT, i own their older mount (got it form you actually) but this battery thing just seems a bit odd and i am not removing my mount unless i absolutely have to, when there are no alternatives.



I am with you on this. I dont see any point for it. Its really in a bad spot on the mount regardless of the claims that the mount can go back to zero.
