I just ordered a Leapers off of Airsplat.com, they had the best price of $14 I could find and most places were sold out. I bought it off of the many high reccomendations I have seen here. I saved over $100 over the B&T mount. Hopefully it is every bit as good as it sounds. I'll post back after I get it and mount it to my JLD PTR 91.

Mounted one of those on mine with my Aimpoint Comp C, after three range sessions and about 500 rounds it is holding up just fine, zero is staying right where it is supposed to be, nothing coming loose. I guess time will tell.

I've got one on my BW5 with an Eotech and am absolutely happy with it

Airsplat is backordered I ordered mine a week or so ago and then finally emailed them asking what was up and they said it might be 2-3 weeks until they get them. So don't be surprised if it doesn't show up on your doorstep for a while.... :<

I guess airsoft stuff isn't all worthless junk. It just seems kinda cheesy using an airsoft piece on an $1100 rifle. I would expect all airsoft to be plastic.

If you guys swear by it it must be good. I guess for $14.95 it is worth a shot.

cheaperthandirt.com has them and ships orders fast.

The leapers mount wasn't created for airsoft guns, it just happens that it also fits airsoft copies and is priced right for that crowd. I own one B&T universal mount and 3 of the leapers. I'll never buy a B&T again since the leapers copy is identical. I don't feel at all bad about sticking a $15 mount on a $3000 gun, it's just a hunk of aluminum after all.

I just tell people it's an 'unmarked' B&T.

Remember what someone far wiser than myself once said, "If it's stupid and it works, it's not stupid".

Another favorite quote comes from a trainer I once learned from who said "Always cheat, Always win".

I ordered one from Airsplat.com for $25 after shipping. Shipping rates are high at that site. I feel like an AR-15 fanboy again by purchasing airsoft equipment for a rifle.

Do you have a picture of the place where it gets hung up? I remember the mount being very tight on my PTR and it took a slight "slap" to get it into place (however it does not affect the function of the bolt).

It doesn't seem to fit at first on my BW89 but if you work with it for a minute you'll get it on there.

I had the same problem with the B&T mount as well as the leapers mount on my original 91. The tab right by the sight was a bit too thick. I seated the mount as far down as I could then attached the mounting feet and screws. By tightening the mount screws I was able to get it seated flush with the receiver. It might have scratched the finish on that tab by doing it but I haven't taken it off to check.

But the point is, the B&T mount had the exact same problem, so you aren't out anything by not paying the extra $100.
