Scope mount for left handed AR

6062 Views 19 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  J.Boyette
Hello all,

I just finished upgrading my Stag Model 7 and I have run into my first issue.

I bought a Larue Quick Disconnect mount (LT-104) and a Leupold VXIII scope (4.5-14 x 40).

For those not familar with the Larue mount, it is a solid one piece mount.

Unfortunately the Larue mount is designed for a right handed rifle as the throw out levers interfere with the ejection port. I reversed the scope mount to put the throw out levers on the right side but this doesn't allow me to get the optimum eye relief or leave me enough rail space for my BUIS.

So my question is will a two piece mount set up do the trick? Can individual rings be reversed for a left handed rifle application? Can anyone please recommend a quality set of individual rings designed for a flat top AR. I was hoping for something with throw out levers or thumb screws. I need them for a 30MM tube. Please provide exact model number and source.

Thanks .

I'm wondering if this might work as a riser for clearance? Its definately not cheap, but it may be an option to look into...

Edit: There is also a 7.62 version, as this is the 5.56. I'm not sure what the difference is besides maybe the built in BUIS clicks...? :?
Might want to try and take one looking down the side of the barrel to give a better idea of the angle of the dust cover. Looking down at it, from the side, is a little deceiving...
