I don't really need convincing as I already took the plunge on one for my ACOG, my experience so far is little if any POI shift after 4 or 5 removals.

I was just curious to hear everyone elses experience.

i have a larue acog and a larue eotech.


so long as they go back in the same slots they were zeroed in, they are as accurate as the ammo i'm shooting.


no complaints here

Do like I do, with a paint pen, mark the T Slot number on the bottom of the mount where it is suppose to return to....

If you ever move to another slot, re-sight in, if needed, contact clean the paint and re-mark.

77

BTW, my LaRue are well with a minute of the original sight in marks...

+1 They return to zero better than I can shoot.

I agree with the comment about being more repeatable than the ammo. I've never experienced a change in POI when changing between LaRue mounted optics. I've tested the LaRue mount multiple times on an optical collimator and they will repeat within 1/4 to 1/2MOA every time. Most carbines will hold 1-2MOA groups, the mount is good to go.

+1 I was skeptical at first when I heard that they would return to zero over and over until I tired it, and they do.

Works everytime.

The few times I tried it, it seemed to be right on. I trusted it after those few times.

Follow, another thing about the Larue, my two cantilevers with COMPML3 aimpoints will
switch between two identical rifles and shoot to same point of aim also. I've tried it several times. Gives me a warm fuzzy. Larue is good to go!

I remove the Aimpoint from my 3-Gun carbine and the Ziess from my Rem M700 when I transport them and when I clean them. Of course they are in LaRue mounts and I wouldn't remove them if the POI changed.

A while back Larue posted a pic of multiple 5 shot groups done with the optic removed and replaced EVERY ROUND of each 5 shot group for like 20 5 shot groups and every 5 shot group was sub MOA and in the same place relative to the aiming point.

I recently took all my stuff apart on my AR to get my barrel threaded. I run an EOTech 512 on the flattop.

When I put it all back together I put the EOTech in the exact same spot. I mean I put it in the exact same slots and slid it back on the rails to make sure it was snug up against the rails I left it on.

I went to the range later and it was still zerod right where I left off, maybe 1moa off though. I don't think it takes much to get an optic back to zero.

When we were first looking at the Larue mounts over 5 years ago, i removed/ replaced one 100x, with not apparent loss of zero.

When the new models came out, we did the same test, but instead of after each shot, did it after every five. No apparent shift.

Obviously it will become more apparent with a telescope than a RDS, and as Bullit states, it will go right back to appx 1/4moa.

I use only Larue on those optics that will accept them.
I have Larue mounts on Aimpoint M2, M3, M4, M4s, T1, EOTech 552, S&B Short Dots and TA31F and RCO M4.

Seems like a pretty good idea ...

It is absolutely necessary to mark the correct slot with some sort of marking.
