Wow. This is the most solid mount I've ever gotten my claws on. The throw levers have no wobble at all, unlike my ARMS throw lever mount for my trijicon reflex......Just need to wait for the nightforce to arrive. :(

I was not expecting LaRue to put soooooo many extra goodies in my box. I got some kind of food spices, a hat, a shirt, a LaRue bottle opener, some bumber stickers, and a crazy looking flash suppressor. Maybe this was why the mount was $200? :p

Thanks for advising me to snag one of these. It is definitely worthy of the Nightforce FFP.

What's this crazy looking flash suppressor?

You should give me the bottle opener, I just wore my old one out. :(

YHM Phantom Flash Hider.

I dunno what to do with the opener. I'll add it to my car keys I guess.

Yeah it's a great mount. I have the same combo... a LaRue mount and a Nightforce. We got the same taste...

Wait wait wait...

You got a flash hinder?!?!

I'll trade all my stuff I got from LaRue (2 hats, 2 dry rub, 7 stickers, 2 bottle openers, 2 mixers) for the flash hinder... ;)

But yes, I have 3 LaRue mounts. The most solid mounts I've ever put my hands on hands down.

All thats missing is the glass, sunshade, butler creek caps, NF angle inclinator, and a bullet-marked lower. Everything but the lower is on on its way when the order finally gets filled by opticsplanet. The NF will be replaced by the FFP model when they release it. This is as close as a college student is gonna get to a PSG-1 for a while.

Glad you enjoy it! They sent me a bunch of stuff in my package as well. :)

I can honestly say I've never seen a company throw in so many goodies. I knew my package seemed unusually heavy when I opened it.

Hmm you didnt go with the scope+mount package. They sell both together for a bit cheaper

Nice rifle! I kind of want to take a hack saw to the last 12" of that barrel though.

They are giving out TAN color'ed hat these days.... MUCH better than black!!!

Just got my FUG (forward grip).... got hat, lube, bottle opener, and dry rub, bumper stickers, etc...

So you was a 12" barrelled SPR? That defeats the purpose. lol.

Hmm you didnt go with the scope+mount package. They sell both together for a bit cheaper

the 10% discount I got on the combined price of the inclinator, sofware, and scope was much more than any savings LaRue offered.

And the best part about it, is that they always throw goodies with any order that you submit... Freaking great company to deal with...

Is that a Harris bi pod 6"-9" swivel? Notched legs?

You really shouldn't store you guns on the kitchen floor....:eek:

Nice looking rifle! How does it shoot?

I wonder what they throw in if you order a $2500-$3000 rifle package from them. My coworker is thinking about just ordering everything for a build from them including complete upper and complete optics package, grips, stock, etc.

Take the gay *** HK sticker off that rifle.

There's a fundamental flaw in your "PSG-1" assertion. Wrong caliber.

(That HK sticker is pretty ridiculous - like putting the Porsche logo on a Honda Civic).

FlyingPen

Not only that but HK would not slap such a ricey sticker on an actual rifle.

Gee, I dunno, they did something similar to the SL8 Stock

Do you honestly think I care about the sticker? I was something that was in the box with a PSG-1 barrel I ordered for a future project. I like it, you don't. Lay off. .223 is cheaper to shoot for me at the moment. I don't have 3K for a PM II to slap on the .308 PSG clone I'm building. Stick to the thread or place your comments elsewhere.

Yeah, this:

Is the same as that giant sticker.

Nice rifle, but exactly what part of the gun is from HK?

Yes, I know you don't care.

Don't listen to all the HK haters. They are just jealous of all that HK goodness. ;)

Great looking rifle so far. Please post pictures once she's finished.

Larue Tactical is really a great company with great people. I've got every color hat and t-shirt they have.

And another windstorm of gunboard PC sweeps through a thread... We get a little too much like arfcom here sometimes. You'd think you were trying to force them to put the sticker on their guns!

Hard to say, but you did say this:

Not really sure what this thread is about... other than you're excited to get your LaRue mount.

Of which you should thank us profusely for arguing with your for days when you wanted to cheap out. :p ;)

It is worth it, truly.

I need to start ordering LaRue parts direct from them; all my mounts have been purchased through third parties, so no swag :(.

+1 for the LaRue SPR mount. I love mine although I didn't get as much swag as you did :rolleyes:

Sharp looking rig ya got there!

I love mine too, I figure it will outlast the scope and I'll use it for whatever my nicest scope is at the time.
I didn't get any swag either,3rd party sale, but I got the same mount for $120shipped.
I'll be ok.

120 is even a good price used, usually i see them for 150-160 shipped.

Good choice on the mount, I love mine. About that sticker though....... j/k
