I need a mount to go with my first Aimpoint M3.

So if I understand this correctly the Larue Cantilever and the standard QD mount both cowitness in the lower third?

My vision is nearsighted astigmatism, not horrible but not great. I've been trying to shoot with and without glasses to see what works best for me. So if I get the cantilever mount do I have to mount it all the way forward or can I move the mount rearward if my eyes like that better?

So what might be best for me, Cantilever, QD, or something else?

Thanks

+1 on that.

The cantilever can go everywhere the straight mount can and more,
the same can't be said the other way around.

A big thumbs up for the Larue Cantilever mount and for Grant.

I've been using, carrying and generally abusing mine since April and it is still going strong. This is one fine piece of gear. Grant is also the only one to consider for this purchase. He went out of his way to see that I got my mount and my Troy BUIS before I deployed.

Thanks Grant,

Later if you decide you want to run the 3x magnifier, you can purchase the cantilever mount from LaRue. Then you can put your Aimpoint in the cantilver mount and the 3x magnifier in the standard mount behind it Or vice versa.

I like my cantilever mount...even put my scout scope on just s&g...worked pretty good...

If you dont have a rock solid railed forend....well them the LRT Cantilever is an even better option.

Thank you, I think I like that idea for now.
