    Id try one for Bobro pricing. They are gorgous and I like the narrow base vs the Bobro.

    Having two SW MRO mounts I dont consider them true QD. You thumb the wheel what seems like enough turns and its still catching the rail. It usually takes 2-3 thumbings to pop it off. Two wheels would be even slower. As a civvie that is a small carp, not a deal breaker. But it would be if I was LEO/Mil.

    Interesting. I have to wonder if they were truly torqued to spec or if someone said they were at spec but weren't. I had to pop my scope out of my ARC rings to send it off for repair and I was please to see there weren't any marks on the body.

    I remain a fan of "unimount" type torque on mounts like Badger and Nightforce and so forth.

    Anyone have any real world experience with this yet? I love their Aimpoint mounts but can't find any real reviews. Sorry to bring this thread to life. I suppose it dying is a sign of what I'll find out

    M4C has some chatter on them with Scalar and Vortex in dialog too.

    Seems well engineered. Love the streamline approach. Price point keeps me out on principle alone.

    Same here. I'd love to try one out, but $399 is steep for "let's check this out"

    I'm sure like everything else Scalarworks makes, this is overengineered, bomb proof, and stellar design. Just a bit too steep for a mount for me.

    Ha..ha.. me too. I'd love to try one, just not at that cost. Love that built in leveler (set screws), would help make life more bearable at times.

    Well one popped up on another forum nib at a low price point so I'm taking it as a sign. Hope I'm making a good decision because ya, that's alotta coin to drop despite the low price point. Thank you for the replies

    The only way left to innovate in market that's flooded with all levels of design from flashy tactical to sublime, is to add a retarded price tag to boost bragging rights.

    Report back when you get some use out of it. I just ordered another poverty Bobro Mount myself.

    It remains my opinion that 65 in-lb torqued 1/2" nuts on crossbolts is the best way to retain a mount to a rifle.

    The reason "QD" became a thing was because optics were fragile. We didn't trust them. We wanted to feel like we could revert back to what we trusted (irons) rapidly, should the glass fail in some way. Now, we are to the point where QD mounts are more likely to break or shift than the optic is to break or shift.

    I'll give impressions but wont be able to give a stellar review with hard use. Living in the good old NY we dont get to do much training. Having a fixed 10 round magazine limits "tactical" applications.
    But that's where my extra money to afford this comes from. I dont have to worry about tax stamps, SBRs, more than one lower, magazines (I only need one 10 round pmag... fixed), freedom, tons of ammo etc. Frees up funds for shit like this.
