As some folks have learned the hard way, A.R.M.S. throw levers sometimes fail at inopportune moments.
LaRue mounts, on the other hand, are well known for their return to zero qualities and toughness.
In this video, I demonstrate the difference between the two.
The A.R.M.S. throw lever fails after four hits, while the LaRue is damaged, but still fully functional.
The sad part is, a lot of companies get suckered in to using A.R.M.S. mounts for their products – such as the EOTech 553 and Elcan Specter DR – when far superior mounts are available.
LaRue isn’t the only game in town – I like Bobro and American Defense as well – but A.R.M.S. shouldn’t be on anyone’s purchase list.
It should be noted that I have no connection with either company, and procured both mounts shown in the video with my own funds.
