    Any particular reason you want true cowitness instead of lower third?

    If you can live with lower cowitness, I'd go LaRue. The LT-129 will hold an extra battery, and the latch design is more rugged. If I remember right, there's a small spring inside the Bobro latch that can fail, and renders the entire mount useless if it does.

    Plank- Why I want/need a absolute co-witness mount is because I have a Aimpoint magnifier with a LaRue LT755 (short) FTS mount on my rifle which only works with absolute co-witness hight optics.

    If I got the LaRue cantilever mount, LT-129, I would also have to buy the "high" LT755 magnifier mount. That is $350+ in mounts right there, so I would rather spend $150 on the Bobro if its "just as good, or almost as good" as the LaRue.


    Anyone have a Bobro mount they would comment on?

    What Plank said. If the Bobro spring breaks, you're screwed.

    My data is a bit old but I believe LT makes an absolute cowitness mount now because there was enough demand. I still prefer the 129, but that's me.

    Sounds like I should spend the money and get the LaRue mounts. Buy once, cry once.
