    Return to zero mount for AR

    Anybody running anything that works as claimed.
    LaRue claim their system is the shiz and guarantee return to zero. Pretty pricey tho.

    Arms works ok, in a twin leaver set up anyway.

    Best I have used, and still use is the bobro mounts(can buy in NZ rebranded to trijicon), not sure if it's really any cheeper than laru though.

    Some people claim they get return to zero with cheeper brands- I have yet to see it myself and just think of most of what's on the market as quick detach instead.
    I really like swapping between 1-6, 5-25 and red dot sights on my 18 varmint ar

    ARMS works - we have a bunch of them with clients who swap between 3 rifles and yeah they return to zero

    I just sold my last ones - but can get more if you want

    Good luck getting LaRue from the USA though. He isn't interested in exporting.

    If I wanted one I would just get my brother who resides there to send it.

    Will go with an arms one if I decide to get another mount.

    I've had really good success with ADM mounts. Very minimal POI shift.

    Several reviews have remarked that the ADM locking system is better than LaRue. LaRue also tend to mar the rail, if you care about that.

    I have both and overall prefer the ADM.

    ADM mounts are readily available from Brownells and they even ship directly to NZ.

    I would like to be able to change from a dot to a scope without a drama.
    I can get my eotech on and off good enough for close 3gun without to much shift.

    I like the ADM mount, so far mine returned to zero, well it was still shooting V's on a fig12, so may have been a small shift in POI, but I didn't notice it... would recommend them.

    I have a Recoil magazine that compares many AR mount for Return to Zero.
    They were all pretty good, the worst was the Burris, but it was still good, i.e. nothing was bad, just some better...

    Ya, that's why I like the QD system.

    I still always like to confirm my zero before use, but it's always less than an MOA. Which I'm happy with as I don't generally shoot the AR past 300.

    FWIW I have the ADM scout with a single lever and it works mint, I was skeptical at first also, especially with only a single lever...
