If you need to have someone mount and test the (Single Solution AR Light Tactical) mounting system., I'll volunteer.

I have a scope that needs to go on a 6.8 upper and this might do the trick.


Let me know, there's a write-up in it for ya!

 It looks ALMOST identical to the new Burris. Same manufacturer, I presume?
 Glad they are in, I know they will move quickly!
 If I needed an AR mount, I'd be on that RIGHT NOW!

I just bought one, hope the space between the rings is long enough to accommodate the center segment of a USO SN4 1-4, else I'll have a problem.

Will report back soon.

Us too!  We tried but Mark LaRue went crazy on us.  We called a few years back to get signed up and he accused us of trying to get his price list so we could give it to A.R.M.S. or something.  He hung up and wouldn't take our call.  We tried to speak with him at S.H.O.T. and he introduces himself like this, "I am THE Mark LaRue, what can I do for you?"  When he found out we were SWFA he went weird on us again and said, "I've got people dying over there right now that need my products, I don't have time for dealers".  Then he walked away.  We were thinking, why are you at S.H.O.T.????  He makes great products and I know we could sell a ton of them but he just isn't interested for some reason.

There are no torque specs!

I got my SSALT and, it BARELY fits the SN4, but I have no torque specs to mount it.

I can surmise, but don't know.

The product needs little documentation, but I do need to know torques.

That's odd, because I heard a completely different story from Mark LaRue.

The title of that thread on ar15.com is not accurate as we did not slam LaRue.  His response on that thread just adds to the confusion.  A business associate of ours and Mark's suggested we hook up as Mark said.  I was not aware that he called here and if he did he did not speak to me.  Our associate in common got off the phone with me, called Mark and said that he was trying to hook our two companies up as it would be beneficial to both.  He called me back with the contact info, I called and spoke to Mark who did not seem receptive and hung up on me.  I called our common associate back and told him what happened and he could not understand what happened and neither could I, so he called Mark back and that is when Mark told him that we were just after his price list so we could give it to A.R.M.S.  I tried calling back to tell him that was not the case and to find out why he hung up on me.  My first thought was that he must have had me confused with another dealer.

I can assure you that I never said any of the things to Mark that he is claiming.  We were excited to offer his products and to deal with a Texas based company like our own.  I am even more confused now after reading his account of what transpired.  If I said those thing to him do you actually think I would stop by his booth at S.H.O.T. and try for a second time to become a LaRue dealer?  At S.H.O.T. I told him that I don't understand what happened with our phone conversation and there must have been some confusion but that is neither here nor there, we are still just as interested as before to offer your products.  He was cordial to us, never brought up anything about the odd phone mishap and explained that he was not looking to sign up any new dealers as he is too busy.  I am not a rude or a disrespectful person and would never speak to someone like Mark has claimed I did.  Do you think he would speak cordially with me at S.H.O.T. had I said those things to him?
 
I am not looking to rehash the ordeal and have nothing but praise for Mark and his company.  We send him a lot of referrals and will continue to do so.
 
Mark, if you are reading this I would like to offer my apology for anything I did to that offended you.  We both run successful firearms based companies, we are on the same team and don't need to be pitted against each other.  There is obviously some confusion in regards to what happened.   We would still like to offer your products but I don't think there is any chance of that happening after reading your comments.   I'll even drive down, shake your hand and look you in the eye and tell you with all honesty that what ever happened was not intended on our end and we only had the best intentions and still do.
 
After reading your comments and really thinking about it, the only possible situation that could explain both of our accounts is that you spoke with another Mr. Farris here at SWFA.  We are a family business and at one time there were four Mr. Farris' here and two of them named Chris Farris (my nephew).  Chris Farris II was not taking any calls at that time but my brother Shawn Farris was and at that time he was our buyer.  If you called and asked for Mr. Farris in regards to selling La Rue mounts you would have been sent to Shawn which would explain portions of what you recall and the confusion on both ends.

Looks like Mark is not interested.  I'll still keep my LaRue armadillo on my desk that he gave me at S.H.O.T. and keep the invitation open.

Don't shoot the messenger, but I imagine that has everything to do with your first post.  From an outside prospective, it seemed highly aggressive; especially since you are saying that it may be all chalked up to mis-communication.

I see your point but it was not until reading Mark's post that I was able to come up with that possible scenario.  I've been wondering for years as to why he treated me the way he did and said the things he did.
 
When the question came up about why we don't carry LaRue, I posted the reason why and after re-reading it I see that it could be taken aggressively by an outsider not knowing the back story...my mistake and I apologize for it.

I dont know but the new Super Sniper 3-9x42 and La Rue mounts sounds like a match made in heaven to me when you look at what should go on an M16A4.  Or at least like a match made in Texas  - well that's pretty close to heaven isnt it.  
 
Chris I'bet Mark would like to have one of those SWFA water bottles along with a note saying how much you like that armadillo.  I gave my armadillo bottle opener to my daughter when she got back from Iraq since she turned 21 while she was over there, now its on her key chain. I really like the hat he sent me too when I bought an RCO mount for ACOG.   I think you guys ought to go out  to lunch sometime when he comes through Dallas or may be if you get down that way you could ask for a tour of the factory.  I might drive down to San Antonio when my youngest graduates basic this winter.
Shocked
 I just  read the stuff over on AR-15.com Shocked
Sorry I didnt mean to get something negative going - I'd post there but I forgot my password since it's been so long since I used it and naturally I'm at home and the account is set up on my work e-mail     @us.army.mil

I just ordered some of these rings! Can't wait to give them a shot.
 
I'm a BIG fan of the Burris Xtreme rings but don't so much like the price. If these work as advertised then I'll be certainly buying more.
 
Thanks for providing what looks to be a great product at a great price.
