You mean like this?

The A.R.M.S. #39 is sort of the gold standard. (http://www.armsmounts.com/default.asp?mode=products&sub=mounts&id=[hsh]39)

ARMS is crap compared to LaRue Tactical.

LOL, I think someone spiked the Larue Kool-Aid this morning...

Hmmm...I don't think Larue makes a cantilever mount.

I'll check the ARMS, but my #40 I'm not too thrilled with...thanks for the input

Anecdotal evidence is... anecdotal. I've never had a problem with mine, but of course YMMV.

Yeah unfortunately with the advent of the flatop receivers, R&D into the carry handle mount stuff sort of... stopped, limiting your choices.

Yep, that's what I get for being old school

No sweat, I have the same A.R.M.S. mount for my M68 Aimpoint on my old school Colt Sporter. Just never had the heart to change uppers to a flat top.

Yep ARMS in the only one I can think of off the top of my head.

Just found a PRI mount here in the Marketplace, but I also want to check that ARMS mount out. I'm sure I'll find one eventually. I like the anti-crap catching feature on it.
