Fit and finish great, its all square. Looks to be like other Primary Arms mounts that are made by Warne? It fits great, absolute cowitness without spacer using a holosun 503(not the c). Looks great, fits great, if I don't desire a qd option I will remember this one for sure.
Great budget riser mount for something like a sig romeo 5 or some of the holosuns, feels sturdy and looks really good.
This is a solid riser mount. The two cross bolts are by far the biggest I've seen that comes with scopes or mounts. I mated it to the Primary Arms SLx MD-20 micro dot and it looks great and clamps to the pic rail rock solid. The nice thing about this riser is it comes with a spacer so you can set up for absolute cowitness (without spacer) or 1/3 cowitness (with spacer). I don't know why more manufacturers don't do this, especially for the risers that come with the red dot scopes. If you got a red dot that comes with high mount lower 1/3 and want to set up for absolute, you have to buy another riser. Vortex Sparc AR is the only one I've seen so far that gives you that option from the factory. Overall, very happy with this mount and I think I will pick up more for future builds. And the price is also great.
Good Mount, Watch Torque

This is a solid riser mount which does provide for an absolute co-witness as advertised. I did run into a problem when installing but PA resolved quickly. For those considering this mount, be advised the torque on the cross bolts might not be correct at the stated 65 in/lbs. The threaded insert head snapped off way before I got to 65, I changed torque wrenches and snapped the second one @ 42 in/lbs. As stated, PA replaced without issue so my recommendation is to take it to about 30-32 in/lbs. which is plenty for a good connection/attachment. Your mileage may vary.
<br>I did experiment and the mount less the insert heads and could/would torque to 33 in/lbs. It would return to zero only if a torque wrench was applied each time the dot was mounted. Just be aware, I was unable to return to zero no matter how careful I tried without the torque wrench.
<br>Overall, pleased with the product and it's limitations as stated.... even so I do recommend the mount and always recommend PA for your needs!
