    I have an Aero mount. If there is a lighter mount on the market with 3 lugs, I'd love to see it. It's also under $100. If you don't need QD, I can't think of why I would buy another mount. I recently got Warne 'Feather weight' mount that is 6 oz. Twice the weight of the aero, and it only has 2 lugs.

    My P4Xi with Aero mount weighed in at 20.5 oz.

    Did you go with the SPR or standard mount?
    For you have armed me with strength for the
    battle, you have subdued under me those who rose up against me. I have pursued
    my enemies and overtaken them. Neither did I turn back again till they were
    destroyed.

    I just looked and I have the 1" extended? It looks like the SPR is longer and the standard is shorter?

    Great thread.

    I really like the Steiner 1-4. An SME buddy swears by them, and his ride-or-die carbine has a Steiner P4Xi on it. Having shot the Steiner and a Vortex 1-6, both in LT 1.93 mounts, I have to say that the Steiner is more 'shootable'. I really like the 6x top end on the Vortex, but the eyebox is less forgiving. The reticle on the Steiner is the tits. For much of my shooting, I kept the Vortex in the 1-4x range, only turning to 6x for supported precision shots.

    It's really a tough call, choosing between them all.

    An ACOG (especially with an ACSS or Horseshoe reticle) plus a mount is barely past 12oz. Add 3-4 oz if you want an RMR, too.

    A P4xi mounted is north of 24 oz.

    A Vortex 1-6 in a LT104 is right around 31 oz.

    A Razor mounted is tipping past 2 lb.

    You definitely get what you pay for, and what you choose to carry around. The P4Xi is a ridiculously good compromise between all of them. For 99% of what 5.56 is good for, 4x will do ya just fine. I don't feel badly that my main gat has a 1-6 on it, though.
