ACOG mount for flattop AR

I put an ACOG on my flattop AR recently, and during my last visit to the range the Trijicon mount the scope came with started to loosen to the point the ACOG almost fell off. What is eveyone using to avoid this type of situation? I've seen the GG&G Accucam Quick Detach ACOG Mount, but wondered if I would experience the same results.

If the scope is coming off of the mount, you need to apply Loc-tite to the screws that attach it to the mount. If the mount itself is the thing coming loose, I have been using the GG&G Accucam mount for 10 months here in Iraq. I haven't had any problems with it coming loose from the flattop. However, my scope did come loose from the Accucam mount during a period of rapid burst fire. Applying Loc-tite to the screws solved the problem.

thanks for the reply IZ. i should have been more clear in my initial post...it is the mount that is loosening from the receiver. are there other options for quick detatch mounts besides the GG&G?

I second the Larue Tactical: I replaced the Trjicon TA51 ACOG mount I had on my Bushmaster M4 with a Larue, and it doesn't come loose.
