Should they extend toward the shooters eye, or away from the eye?
...or doesn't it matter?

Cantilever mounts, meant to move the scope further out away from the shooter's eye while utilizing the limited available space on the upper receiver's rail.

Perfect, thanks!

Also, push them forwards (towards the muzzle) when attaching and tightening them down. There's a mm or 2 of play in pic rails and you want the mount butted up against the forward point. This goes for any rings/mounts.

Follow the torque specs to the letter or you will have windage adjustment problems.

Ok...my scope is too wide for those p-series mounts. I'm using an AR optics (Bushnell) 3x-12x and it's too wide where magnification adjusts, it hits bottom of mount.
So, I can use the mounts backwards which is putting the scope a little too far back, or try different mounts.
Anyone using this scope? What mounts are you using? ...maybe I'll start a different thread for this....

Thats what I like about these mounts. Lots of functionality with the ability to change the direction and mount a variety of optics.

In that scenario, is there any advantage to using a cantilevered mount...why not just use standard rings? ...aside from the fact that I already own the p-series mounts :)
