I'm looking to mount my Nightforce NXS 2.5-10 x 32mm and a Burris FastFire at 1 o'clock on my 16'' REPR. With all that stuff on there I'm trying to watch my ounces too so it doesn't turn into too much of a beast.

The Daniel Defense 1 o'clock mount seems good to go but which rings for the scope?

-Should I prioritize quick release capability? Are bolt ons more stable?
-Are one piece mounts worth the additional weight?
-What height rings will clear the BUIS and 1 o'clock mount and still give me a decent cheek weld?

The offset of the LaRue 104 would seem to preclude the secondary FastFire mount. LaRue also makes individual quick release rings with a 1.3" height. These seem good.

The American Defense one piece mounts seem very heavy and I can't find any height or weight info on the Bobro.

My other options are the Nightforce ultra light rings or unimount with no quick release.

Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks

I like my American Defense mount...The fact that is QR is awesome. It is not that heavy...My scope was heavy. The mount was nothing.

warne makes a mount that would hold both, its called the RAMP mount. Here's a link from the manufacturer's website so you can see a photo. http://www.warnescopemounts.com/ramp_mount.html

I ended up going with the lightest weight route I could find - NightForce Ultra Light rings and the Daniel Defense 1 o'clock offset mount. Had to dremel some material from the DD mount but ended up getting a pretty compact setup with the low checkweld height that I prefer.

Thanks all for the feedback.http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm25/Allstuffforsale/IMG_1731.jpg
