How much longer must we wait for EOTech to start using ARMS throw levers on their sights??? This should be a no-brainer, and hopefully in the works!

Any other supporters out there?

I would settle for a really low single throw lever ARMS mount made for use with the Eotech. Something along the lines of the ARMS 19S, only low (thin) enough that the Eotech would still co-witness.

Am I the only one who thinks ARMS throw levers are a pain in the A$$. I can never get the cross bars to line up and get the little sheet metel tab over the rail at the same time. And if every thing does not line up just right they bind. I went back to my TA51 ACOG mount because I had such fits with the 19. Maybee I'm a retard but that's my $.02.

My experience is that if you put the side of the mount with the metal tab(s) on the rail first, making sure that the tabs grab the rail, then you can rotate the mount down so that it is flat on the rail. That way you don't have to worry about the tab(s) while you line up the cross bar(s).

Exactly! Why doesn't ARMS get off their A$$ and make this happen? Thier #54 sucks as it's too high. I looked into making my own with an ARMS #17 base but can't find a rail the right size to bolt onto it.

EOTech has a wide body configuration, the throw lever had to be positioned way out to clear the sight structure. This has been tried but a new base on the EOTech has to be redeisgn to accommdate the throw lever. something might be in the works but no in the near future.
