View Full Version : Quick detach or thumb screw?

February 19, 2002, 04:07 PM
Going to mount a red dot scope (Kobra) on my AR-15 flat top 16 inch barrel what would be better the quick detach or thumb screw mount?
Will want to take scope off to use iron sights every once in a while.
Thanks in advance.

Purists would never have QD, especially on a sniper rifle. I'm no purists and like the ancient Romans, I'd like to take the pragmatic approach. Since you'll be taking the scope off every now and then, go QD. I did with my Remington 700 LTR (yes, I sinned).

You could just get a flip up rear sight and leave everything on all the time

I have a Kobra with the thumb screw mount that I will sell you for $125 including shipping. I used it once and have all of the original packaging and five extra batteries that I will throw in. If you are interested e-mail me [email protected]
