Strong Mount

Seems to be a solid mount so far.

American Defense makes a great mount.

by -

I've bought multiple American Defense mounts. They are excellent quality and truly do keep zero after being removed and installed multiple times. They cost a little bit more but are definitely worth it.
<br>As per usual Primary Arms provides excellent service and quick delivery.

This mount is rock solid, I have it paired with a primary arms 1-6 acss , once zeroed it holds well after being removed several times I highly recommend

The perfect quick mount for you optic

It works perfectly, letting me add my Vortex Strike Eagle to my 300 Blackout when I want in seconds.

Only ADM mounts from now on


This, like all ADM products, is rock solid and super high quality. This is the kind of QD that other companies try to replicate, but ADM's levers and mechanism is the best there is. This has the best true return to zero of any QD scope mount. Check the ADM website for their guide image that lays out all the measurements for height and offset for all their mount models, and get the exact mount that is right for your set up.
<br>11/10, would mount again.
