I've been craving a laser on my AR but good ones are so expensive. I figured I would save a few hundred bucks and just roll my own. Problem is, building a laser with internal adjustment would be a pain in the ass. I figured I could just loctite everything in place so the laser stayed dead-on and adjust the mount around it.

Does anyone sell a mount like this? I think I've heard it mentioned before, but I'm not sure. A 1 inch wide ring mount would be best, as most cheap laser hosts are made from 1" flashlight bodies.

Technically, you spell your name wrong.  It's w-a-n-k-e-r.

Redfield Mounts are windage adjustable.  Elevation can be adjusted with shim stock. mounting it to a AR would be fun but not impossible.

"Thanks" for the help.

Thanks for the help, I'll check them out.


Why was the topic moved? This has more to do with a mount than a laser...

A laser is for super fast target AQ in close quarters, its designed to let you hit "minute of chest" without having to line up sights, or throw away your peripheral vision by looking through a CQB optic.



Why you would want to do what you describe is beyond me, but good luck.
