I remember seeing someone's carbine with one, but I'll be dammed if I can find the pic.

Lumpy, It should be in the thread that's tacked on top - showing the pic's of the different ACOG reitcules.

new_arguy has one.

Hmmmm...I have mine on a TA-60 but that looks interesting. Looks like it sits lower than my TA-60. Can anyone verify?

Not only does it sit lower than a TA60 but it sits lower than the iron sights normal height. The short eye relief combined with the extra low mounting height of a 3X ACOG / 19S combo in front of an ARMS 40 is somewhat annoying to me but I have a big ol' mellon head.

OK, sounds like I should just be happy with my 2x20 on the TA-60.

I've got mine mounted on the TA-60 also. The annoying thing about the TA-60 is it won't butte up against the ARMS#40 like the ARMS19 will. If they just trimmed a bit off the ends you could get it back one full notch. Plus it would lighten up the mount (which is almost as heavy as the darn scope).

Duh, I shouldnt look for stuff after being awake all night. Thanks.

Anyone have a pic of a compact ACOG mounted on a flat top in a Trijicon TA60 mount???

Here you go, its not the best pic, but its all I have right now. [img]http://groups.msn.com/_Secure/0UAAXA0YYktSo*Q5ALVOQJwXrHJLW9VXS!q8ZDunUHJ9f­0LrfbNtrlidNp8q!LxE0DtM61vkflK2cG9lw25gRjPcPw­CMxXJszNC9NMsF1MaP5QNEPnFZ7hnSCeCgAcHgo/Picture%200030.jpg?dc=4675434334159867523[/img]

Boom, thanks for the pic (nice peashooter, BTW)! Just a few questions... What magnification compact is that & do you find that you have sufficient eye relief? Is that as far back as a TA60 mount will go with the ARMS BUIS installed? Thanks again.

The compacts come in a variety of magnifications (which also influences eye-relief) and reticule patterns. I have a 3x TA50-2. As mounted above I find it barely useable with the A1 length stock. Its not bad from prone - but going from low ready or 'duck walking' makes it difficult to use. With the Stubby stock and a 1" extension the scope is far more usable for me no matter the position.

Can you elaborate on the "stubby stock with 1" extension" comment? Do you mean a 1" stock extension, or an extension over the receiver that mounts the ACOG forwards 1 more inch?

Someone should suggest to ARMS about making a spacer for the 19S to get the compact ACOGs up to the proper height on a flat top. This way, they don't have to make a whole new mount.
Link Posted: 8/17/2003 9:00:48 PM EDT
FALBert: Been there; done that. I mounted my comp ACOG on a 19S, with the 19S backwards (throw lever on the right), on top of a #38, on top of a flattop. Eye relief is SO much better than the typical mount, and height over bore is comfortable and very workable. If I ever figure out how, I'll post a pic. FWIW

Hope it ain't Scratch-N-Sniff... Rifleman308, if you already have the pic on your computer, send me an email of it and I'll put it up. I'd like to see that set up, and I'm sure others do too.

That's the new "Tactical Poop Camo", used for fighting in urban sewers without detection. You can't be too careful... -Troy

LMAO! I am surprised someone hasn't marketed a "tactical poop camo" yet. It seems we have everything else! -Charging Handle

Guy's, remember. Someone worked long and hard for that "tactical poop" colored handguard and grip. Be nice. Joe

Here's a pic of my Special Ring Compact ACOG, medium ring; [img]http://home.comcast.net/~vocenoctum/gun/M4ACOG.JPG[/img] I haven't had a chance to take it out yet to see how the scope will work with the front site. I can mount it back another notch or two, but it is then against the sight, not sure if that'd interfere, so I'm gonna try it this way first.

Its an extension for the stock - both DPMS & Knights makes them (The Knights is far better).
