ARMS levers have a pad between the lever and the reciever. Depending on the thickness of the receiver or the pad, you get differences in the tension it takes to close them. If you find it too tight, I have seen ARMS get you a slightly thinner pad to make it easier. The LaRue has an adjustable lever, so if it is too tight, you can loosen it slightly with a small wrench.
