Backwards

The LaRue RCO mount I got for my PAC5X scope put it about on Picatinny notch farther forward than I wanted it.

It hit me today that the mount is reversible!  So I reversed it.

Before...


After...


The RCO (oriented "correctly") is designed to put an ACOG a lot father back on the rifle and is intended to be used without a BUIS, so the contour of the "tail" matches the top of the charging handle boss on the upper receiver.  That little tail interferes with the BUIS I've mounted if I wanted to put the scope where I wanted it.

Reversing the mount lets me put it where I prefer it and requires I go to the range and zero the rifle anew.

Darn!  I have to go shooting!
