Primary Arms Deluxe AR-15 Scope Mount - 30mm
To make sure that the mount nut is fully tightened, turn the nut clockwise until resistance is encountered. After that, turn another 1/2 turn. If a torque wrench is being used, we recommend no more than 35-40 in-lbs.
Ratings & Reviews
Worked perfectly when properly torqued.
by Emmett -
Before buying I read the reviews saying that the mounting bolts stripped. I took the chance that it might have been an over torque issue. The range is 40-55 INCH lbs. I used 45 and it worked perfect. Used about 16-18in/lbs on the scope ring bolts and they worked, no problems. Scope rings were also true, no lapping required.
Expect less and you won’t be disappointed

Threads are questionable but functional. Screws bent but functional. Disappointed with quality. First time I’ve tried a “budget” mount. Won’t happen twice, you get what you pay for.
Subpar and too high for me
I really like Primary Arms scopes, but this mount is subpar. This mount can loosen up on you and scratch your scope tube. I recommend using loctite on all the screws with this mount. Also, I found the 1.5" height to center line of the scope was too high for me on an AR. Around 1.4" is where I like it. Figure out your preferred height before you buy. If you are going to spend several hundred dollars on a scope, you may as well spend ~$100 on a better scope mount.
Rock solid mount.

Rock solid mount, quick set up. A must for the 1-8 30mm Primary Arms scope. Mount it. Forget about it.
Lap these before first use!
You will REALLY want to lap the rings. What this mount did to the bottom of my PA 4-14 ACSS scope was painful to see. After I lapped the rings, this mount worked well and look good also.
I don't care what my mom says, primary arms is awesome
Used this to mount a Primary Arms 4-14X scope to an AR-15. It worked fantastically and never came loose or lost zero despite being tossed around. After years of taking it on and off the rifle, I eventually stripped out the screws by over tightening them one time. Contacted primary arms and they shipped me an entire new mount the next day, free of charge. Will continue buying all the gear from them I need.
Eh, could be better...

Mounting bolts stripped before I ever got to take it to the range. Looked nice though.
Nice mount for the price. A little heavy at 8.2 oz compared to others. I lapped mine for a better fit. Make sure it's torqued properly.
I bought this mount based on all the 5 star reviews.
First of all hats off to Primary Arms for their wicked fast shipping and great customer service. I purchased this scope mount because of all the 5 star reviews. Mine was delivered pre-scratched I guess it must have been returned from a customer to PA before I received it. No big deal chances are it would probably end up getting scratched by me at some point anyway. What sucks is how easy it scratches. I don't think that the finish is very good. The description says it is anodized. I guess I was expecting a better tooling process. The edges are not sharp and smooth as the pictures would lead you to believe instead they look more like no name accessories you might buy on eBay from China. Anyway with all that aside my other observation is that it heavier than I was expecting the description does mention that it weighs a pinch over a half pound. OK those are the negatives that I noticed right off the bat now for the positives. It seems very sturdy. I'll probably change out the star head mounting bolts in favor of allen head bolts from the local hardware store. (Whoops another negative slipped in there). I like the fact that each ring cap has four bolts that makes it much more secure. I like the idea of a one piece scope mount it just makes sense. I was concerned that the ring placements on a one piece mount might not be ideal for my scope but it works fine for my Nikon P-223 scope. It's pretty much centered on the mount and the eye relief is good. In my opinion this is a decent scope mountbut 5 stars? I don't think so.
I would have to say that for the budget builder this mount is truly a great deal for the money, I have tried many mounts in the budget range and this mount is the nicest for the money that I have tried thus far, I recommend it!!
Great Scope Mount
by Derek Beck
Very good quality scope mount and great price. Fast shipping.
Outstanding product and service
This was another outstanding interaction with Primary Arms. Their products are among the best values in the industry, in my opinion. I purchased this scope mount for a new 1-6x ACSS scope and both were high quality and reasonably priced, and shipped to me VERY quickly. I'll be a Primary Arms customer for a LONG time!
by Alton Tew
Very well made. The mount is high enough to allow me to keep my backup sights. It clears them perfectly. This is a really solid scope mount and gives me perfect eye relief for an ar platform.
PA outstanding price
PA always fast shipping and good customer service
by David Stauffer
The scope mount came quickly. The instructions were easy to follow. I like the design. It seems to work well. I'd get it again and recommend it to my friends.
Mount is sturdy and easy to set up. Locks in place and sits flat on top of the receiver
Best mount for your money...period
by Chris H
This is an excellent mount for the money. The 2 screw per cap is just right and the design is aesthetically pleasing. Sure it may not be as nice as some of the $200+ mounts but this one is much cheaper and does the job. I originally bought this as a spare/backup but I might just continue using it as a primary mount.
by Elliott Farro
These have become my go to mount on our builds. No issues.
PA deluxe scope mount
by David Phillips
This is an excellent scope mount. It far exceed the quality of some costing higher that are not as beefy. Absolutely crazy about it!
Great mount, Fast Shipping as always, Unless you need Quick Release, this is as good or better than other more expensive mounts.
by will passmore
This is a good mount for the money. I like the two-bolt attachment and the long clamp. Very secure and very strong. The forward cant makes it easy to get the proper eye relief, and there's still room on the rail and clearance for BUIS. If you want to mount a relatively long scope on an AR, and you're not planning on removing it a lot, this is a pretty good choice.
Shipped promptly and well packaged. Still waiting on scopes to mount but they fit my rails perfectly.Happy Customer.

by Alan Dohmen
This a good straight forward mount if you're on a budget, and don't need a quick-release.
