Larue is widely considered the best of the current offerings.

Larue seems to be the most popular (and expensive!) here.

There are others more expensive then LaRue. For a cantilever their price is not that high.

Agreed. Get the LaRue if you can.

LaRue, GG&G or ARMS seem to be the front runners. All three have their + and - but the LaRue is the most "popular". I had an ARMS (not cantilever) but switched to the LaRue Cantilever a couple weeks back. I love it so far.

what is the benifit of the cantilever mount?

I mounted my Aimpoint and 3X magnifier with 2 of the Larue standard mounts and it works well.

ok, maybe I'm just not seeing it...

couldn't you just use 2 standard Larue mounts and still have room for the BUIS while keeping everything over the upper?

I ask bc that is my setup and it works well. I went to it bc if I did it the way you picture, I can't run my PEQ.

So...why would you want to use the cantilever if the other way works fine.

Those are great pics of your rifle BTW.

You are right about the nose to charging handle. When I use my 3X, I have to extend the stock 1 click. I like it collapsed bc of the armor but the PEQ takes priority...

Good info.

Thanks



Looks great! Is that the rubber "condom" cover on the Aimpoint? If so, how do you like it?

what makes the Larue better than the ARMS?

Here we go again... There is this same exact debate going on in another post. Look in the Optics Forum and you'll surely find it.

JTrusty,
Why did you go with an M68 mount instead of the LaRue mount made specifically for the 3X magnifier (LT114 ?)?

Maybe it wasnt available when he got it.

If you want a quick release mount, Larue is the best by far.

If you want something other than Larue that is equally as solid and the quick release feature doesnt help you out, the GGG mount is about as tank of a mount as one could ask for- equally as solid as the Larue. And that says alot.

The short and non-political version is this. The LaRue throw levers are adjustable. So they will fit any upper, even one that is slightly out of spec. And if you move the mount to a different upper you can adjust it to fit that upper as well.

In addition, the current crop or LaRue mounts have a locking throw lever that further ensures the mount will not come off, and almost litterally, becomes a part of your upper receiver.

Convenience and security in one.



Here's an ARMS 22M68 with a cantilever spacer on my Dissy.





Here's the LaRue on a photo of my M4gery.





I've owned both and like both. But in my worthless opinion, I like the LaRue better.

Some prefer longer eye relief. And I for one like the dot further forward. For me the dot further forward is faster and easier to see with both eyes open. YMMV - use what works for you, your gun is not my gun, and your eyes are probably much different then mine.

Moves the optic foreward, easier to pick up the dot when shooting two eyes open & frees up valuable "rail-estate" for mounting other items such as the 3x magnifier.

I wish I stayed back in IN.
