    Optic mount for AR-10

    Looking for a one piece throw-lever scope mount. Anyone got like a top three recommendation?

    Itís a Centurion Arms Mk.11 based build, 16Ē. Iíll be using a scope with 10x-14x top magnification

    When you say throw-lever scope mount, are you talking about a quick detach mount with the quick detach levers, or do you mean that your scope with have a magnification adjustment throw lever? I've never heard of a QD mount called a throw lever mount, so just wanted to clarify (throw lever usually refers to the lever that adjusts scope magnification).

    If you're looking for a QD mount, I agree that the Larue is a great choice. If you want a less expensive option, i've use the ADM Recon Mount with good results. Never used the Scalar Works mount, but they make very high quality mounts.

    ADM Recon-S.

    AR-10 upper receiver picatinny length is relatively long, does not necessitate a cantilevered mount.

    FYI I would not consider the Scalar Works a QD mount. I would consider it a toolless mount. There is no way you are getting that off quick like you would an ADM or Larue. Its selling point in my mind is its lightweight. I feel there are some issues with that mount and sold mine.

    On my SR25 I run a Badger C1 mount but its not QD.
