I have had pretty good luck with the Burris Extreme rings. Very sturdy, and solid mount.

+1 - Since you have a Larue upper get a Larue SPR mount. That is what I got on mine.

+1 again - LaRue all the way...... I'm using one to mount a 3.5-15 Nightforce on my 20" Stealth.

Take a look at the Rock River AR scope mount. $55 dollar and a strong mount. Proper eye relief and heighth. Like mine alot

+1 i have 2 and they are solid!
another good choice i like is American Defenses their bases are interchangeable for different size mounts which is a good thing if lets say you have a 30mm and want to go to a 1in and dont have to buy a whole new set

Larue mount for the win.

Quick release, return to zero, super solid with outstanding workmanship.

And yes, they work great with a BUIS.

Cowitnesses fine with my Troy BUIS. I am sure any of the SPR mounts like the LT-104 will be fine with BUIS.

any issues with buis"s with the larue mount?

American Defense...haven't had any problems with mine. I also like the look of the American Defense better than that douche bag's mounts. :whistling:

I disagree about getting proper eye relief out of that set up. The only way I was able to was by mounting the front screw off the front of the rail. It was still solid, but it didn't look right.

I like the RRA Scout Rail (http://www.tenpercentfirearms.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=11&products_id=314) as it will surely give you good eye relief and then you can use any standard low rings. For $72.50, it is surely economical. However, BIUS wouldn't work with it.

I like that picture of that last Burris. It looks like you could get the correct eye relief with it. I need to check on its price!

I have the Burris mount and its decent. If I were to do it again, i'm either going to go with a riser/extender and forward mount it a bit with standard QD rings or single piece QD mount from American Defense. I really like those mounts.

I just ordered two of the 1" and 30mm Burris AR PEPRs. We will check them out.

Why you calling Burris a douche? They're mounts are pretty good.

I have to agree the Burris mount looks better. I like the picitanny mount on top and the sight through under the scope.
