Default Lightweight mount for Leupold 1.5-4x20?

I'm interested in a lighweight mounting platform that will work with a flat top upper and the leupold 20mm scope.

I bought the lightest 1.5-4x20 scope I could find which weights in at just under 10oz.

Now I need a lightweight 1 piece(Strong) mount for the baby. I'm looking for somthing under 7oz so I can keep the total weight I add to the rifle under 1lb.

quick detach would be nice but not necesary...oh ya and I'm trying to keep it under $125

Suggestions from the AR guys!

Thanks!

I went with the Warne, Quick Detach Rings. I had to get the tall rings because I was going over a Matech, rear BUIS. I have the exact scope you have. I am very happy with this set up overall. I'll try to find the ones I purchased and post a link soon. c good

The CAA DVSR would work. I use mine with a 30mm scope but it comes with 1" inserts and it's about the lightest option out there.

It seems to be a copy of a KAC mount and there are other copies out there. It looks like Primary Arms might have one. Then there are Airsoft copies. If you go that way, the CAA is cheap enough, don't buy a ? to save $4.00, it might be Airsoft.

A member on here going by Maxicon has a web page reviewing several options for AR scope mounts, find it and read it.
