    Bobro or LaRue?

    What are the feelings on these mounts? I know Larue has been around a long time and is battle proven.... how are the Bobro's? they appear to be very well made. Are the rated as highly as Larue or will that take awhile?

    GTG?

    LaRue for me! They have never failed me and his service has always been excellent in my dealings with him.

    I like Larue. they just flat out work. and secondly it's about risk vs. reward. you risk spending the money on a system that could perform worse than the LT, and your reward could be a system that works AS GOOD.

    Mounts



    Aimpoint/Bobro/LaRue. The spacer is Aimpoint.





    LaRue Mount



    Bobro mount

    I ran the Bobro mount at the Magpul carbine class, worked great, no issues.
    I ran the LaRue mount at another class, again no issues. When a buddy borrowed my LaRue and used it on a LMT upper, there was a small bit of wiggling.

    On the Colt no issues. I like both, Mark and Andrew make very good products. The cost are close. Each have strong/weak points. Both have strong levers to clamp the mount onto M1913 rails. I still run both-tough choice. Good luck.

    Yes Bobro has made or is finishing up their T1 mount but they did not say how long it would be before they released it for sale.

    I haven't had an opportunity to use a Bobro mount however, I have used a lot of LaRue mounts. I have never had the first problem with the quality of any of the LaRue products I have ever used. They have always been rock solid.

    Are you sure? Maybe he's a lefty and wants the throw lever on the outboard side.

    And to the OP's question, Bobro. Rock solid, repeatable mounts. No adjustment necessary
    nor any means provided. Its simply not required. Bobro mounts auto compensate for rail
    tolerances. Even weaver rail compatible ( if that matters to you ). Auto index, meaning the
    mount auto locates in the direction of recoil in the t-slot. The bases can be reversed to
    place the throw lever on either side of the weapon. Throw levers can also be reversed to
    face either forward or rearward.

    Not to mention stellar support from one heck of a nice guy.

    not trying to hijack, but since the two companies are the topic of conversation...which VFG would you choose, Bobro or LaRue?

    I've got two Larue mounts w/M3's. GTG so far. Larue has good CS. The Bobro came out after the above purchases and I haven't needed another mount till now. The Bobro looks solid and is gaining a good repuatation.

    I just picked up a fire sale 6920 and I think a H/T 1 is going on it. If Bobro gets their mount out on the market by winter, I'll give them a try.

    Either way, I think your headed in the right direction. Decision time.

    Haven't owned any Bobro, but I have a couple Larue accessories on my AR. I don't think you can go wrong with either. Read great things about both. I bought a LT-129, was pleased with their service and product quality, and never thought to go with a different company.

    FWIW most if not all people with no experience with Bobro prefer LaRue.....just sayin'.
