I have zero experience with EOTechs. Will they mount directly to a Weaver/1913-type rail. I have not seen a Weaver adapter, so I make this assumption. Can anyone inform me of this?

I've read from others here that the EOTechs will mount to the mil spec weaver rails right out of the box.

Finally, we had a standard, and products that meet the standard can be moved from one gun/mount to another. The EOTech was designed to fit on the 1913 rail, like just about everything else made today, but it may not fit on many Weaver mounts. For example, I have a Weaver-brand mount on my Marlin Camp 45, and it would require new cross-slots to be machined onto it in order for an EOTech to mount properly. This is due to the mount being non-standard, not the EOTech.

This is my understanding of the subject. If you would put this together with my confusion from

www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=18&t=188468&page=1

you may appreciate some of my confusion about mounting issues.

Advice from any and all is appreciated.
