    WTB Mount for Ar15

    HI all
    Looking for a 30mm mount for AR15 to fit a vortex scope
    Anything floating around at a reasonable price $440 for a mount is a bit steep for me
    Thanks

    Importing anything with the NZ $ at 0.67 US $ is not really worth it these days.

    https://nzar15.com/store/index.php?i...oller=category

    NZ $169.90

    vs

    Importing from USA.
    Mount US $89
    Postage to NZ US $38
    Exchange rate arse r*ping 0.67

    Equals approx NZ $189.90

    Not to mention at least 14 days to arrive and clear NZ Customs and be delivered to your door.

    Buy locally from Digit while the price is what it is!

    sorry @Burran I think we might have beat you to it. You could try calling Reloaders but the web site is not showing any...

    Optics planet is going to send them out in a week or so but you will likely get done for GST and on the way in to NZ.

    Good point @dogmatix unfortunately we are now dealing in what feels like the South Pacific Peso

    One thing about most of these mounts is the weight!! I just don't want to add another 180g+ if I can help it. Maybe I will buy a Kozak and drill the crap out of it for a laugh. Hey I am not going to be busting doors with this mount!

    Any one have any ideas on a lighter mounting option?

    sorry Beanie for the hijack...

    Well Brownells have the Aero Precision SPR ultra light. Everything else is out of stock elsewhere. Maybe get 2 and sell one to make it worthwhile? Probably cost $170 or there about landed. Anyone interested? Will probably take a couple of weeks.

    I think Herbmiester on Sportshooter is getting some in. Not sure on pricing.

    Herb = Herbmiester look him up if you want to PM him.

    I am also looking at the Warn Skelamount at the moment. Looks like they are fairly light but cant get any any actual weights.
