I gots a couple of questions about offset mounts.

1.What's the point?
2.Are they worth it(compared to straight mounts)?
3.Who makes the best one?

I don't know anything about the ARMS mount but i like the look of the KAC one.Pictures would be appreciated.

Thanks,Tyler

It's so you can get the optic further forward without having to mount on a handguard system.

I noticed everyone has a ARMS offset mount. Is it any better than the KAC one? Anyone have a price comparison?Isn't that ARMS one a two peice thing?

Thanks,Tyler

The #22M68 from ARMS is very modular, so if you go to anther set up, just remove the catilever spacer and you have a lower ht. The ARMS throw lever attachment also has a built in buffer that won't allow the finsh to get worn off from opening and closing the lever. I hear that ARMS and KAC don't leave as much profit margine, so I assume a few dealers prefer to sell what has a larger mark up, but I too prefer the #22M68.

I'm confused.So,they are about the same but the ARMS is cheaper and more modular.Right?Does the military use the ARMS offset mount?I've only seen the KAC being used.BTW,why do you prefer the ARMS?

Thanks,Tyler
