I want a quick release mount for my Eotech, something similiar to a quick release system that bike tires have, ya know, like a throw lever.

Doubtful I will ever put my Eotech through the paces it was designed for, but it would be a cool QD feature.

I've never heard of one. Just keep a quarter in your pocket for the slot in the factory knob.

The EOTech is designed to mount directly to the flattop. If you raise it with most mounts, it will no longer co-witness with your irons sights. The only exception that I am aware of is the ARMS #54, which is a throw lever mount designed for EOTechs that will let you see the irons underneath the mount. I was considering it, but then I realized that with the co-witness, there was really not much need to have a quick detach. Plus the mount raises the sight significantly, and I thought it would be up too high for my tastes. If you are interested, Cal's Sporting Armory here in Denver sells it for $99. http://www.calssportingarmory.com/ARMSnumberLR1EO.htm

I am aware of the ARMS Throw lever EoTech mount, but that was primarily for individual's wearing heavy body armor and gas masks, not what I was thinking. Instead of the thumb screw attaching to the locking bolt, how about a throw lever? This would not change the height of the optic at all and allow for extremely fast disengagement for a BUIS. Just messing around, I found it easy to flip a single throw lever on my #19S ACOG with my left hand and go to BUIS than it was to engage the #40 with my right. This way my right hand never has to leave the grip area.

You know what pisses me off? I've got an ARMS #50, which was designed to allow you to co-witness your eotech sight. However, if you have an AA model eotech, you can't replace the batteries without removing the eotech! I have yet to figure out what the hell ARMS was thinking when they put that "bump" (see picture below) in at the end of the rail. I would definatly like some kind of quick detach leveler. Other than that I'm pretty happy with my setup, and that my only complaint. [img]http://www.hunt101.com/img/062965-big.JPG[/img]

Lockedon, That little knob at the end of you #50 for for a PEQ mount. Push the pin back, drop the mount on, secure the pin and screw it down. Very similiar to the #45 and #46. The #45 and #46 has the PEQ mount invert so the picatinny rail is available, so just do the same for mounting. On the #50 the PEQ mount is an addition cost. But seriously, wouldn't an integrated flip or throw lever system on the Eotech be a HUGE improvement?
