saw this spr mount in the jan10 issue of shotgun news where they did an article about larue.

looked through the paper a few times already but this time i noticed something weird in one of the pictures.



its a doctor optic mounted with the spr scope mount. its kinda offset lookin.
heres a pic i snapped of the picture in the paper.





anyone know about this? grant is this a new item or is it a prototype? old?
<­BR>

I saw one of those in Nashville.  Looked like it would have major durability problems.  Not so much the way the mount was or anything like that, just having that little optic sight stuck out there.  Why not just make a connecting rib on the scope rings or something like that?  A little mini sighting rib?  IMHO, that would be a far more durable and cheaper solution to lack of close range speed.  Plus it would be ambi, and only require a slight change in cheek weld as opposed to being offset to the left or the right.  Paint a white line down the middle.

Just a thought.

Mounted on the right side of the weapon all you have to do is cant the weapon slightly as you mount it.  It works slick.....
As far as durability goes, opt for the Dr. Optics over the J-Point.  The Dr. Optics is a more robust sight with better optics.  Both will fit on the LaRue mount....

I think it's a slick set-up for an SPR.........
