Something old, something new.


Sometimes you might want to mount an optic to a fixed carry handle AR.  There are a few different ways to do so, but I think one of the best is the old A.R.M.S. #02 mount.


A.R.M.S. #02

A.R.M.S. #02There are many knock offs of the A.R.M.S. #02 that are no where near as good quality.  Many cheap similar scope mounts that are made in China break when you try to tighten the mounting screw.  Now I am not much a fan of ARMS products, but this one does what it is suppose to do.  So I keep one around in case I feel the desire to slap an optic on an A1 or A2 upper.

Today I learned of a LaRue product I didn’t know about before.  It is conveniently labeled “ARMORER’S TOOL”.


LaRue ARMORER'S TOOLIt is simply a piece of plastic holding a LaRue adjustment wrench and a hex key Allen wrench for tightening or loosing LaRue ACOG mounts.  A nifty little combo tool for those that use a good many LaRue ACOG mounts.
