    I have boxes and boxes of shit, I know I should sell it but Im so fkn lazy. Maybe when I retire and some of the shit will be of value, I can sell 3 items per month to pay for shit I need when Im old and broke.

    I don't think there's a bad one on the list and have had many of them. I've had far more LT150s and a few 129s. The Geissele mount is excellent.

    How did you have bad lick with a Wilcox mount?? Iíve always found them to be badass and ahead of their time.

    They're a cheap extrusion which only has partial surface contact to the tube. My SBR fell over and naturally landed on the Aimpoint. The gun definitely lost zero. I never knew why until I replaced the mount. The contact surfaces from the Wilcox had gouged the aimpoint tube slightly. In other words, they need a complete ring on the tube for maximum surface contact instead of several staggered footprints.

    Brutally true.

    No experience with the product, but that was my thought when I was looking at them.

    Externally they looked like a simple, strong mount with the only downside being the goofy knob that NO tool fits to tighten to the pic rail. But on the inside of the mount... yeah... no good.

    They have the mount according to tracking. I have to follow up with them.

    They are currently out of stock on LEAP/PRO mounts, I'm sure Scalarworks will send out a brand new mount once they are available but that might be a few weeks dependent upon their production schedule.
