Hello;

I have recently bought a US Optics ST-10 TPAL to mount on my  AR10A4 flat top rifle. 

I quickly found that the old scope mount ring-to-ring distance is not sufficient for the USO ST-10 TPAL. The inside distance between the integral rings is too short, and both scope rings impinge on the erector assembly in the middle of the scope.

Would anyone like to recommend a one-piece scope mount for gas gun 1913(Picatinny) rail systems? 
NO additional MOA built in mount.
 
I should say something cheaper that USO's UMQDS mount system, $380 is a crazy price! Whacko

I know the La Rue LT111-30mm will fit that scope however to determine if the AADLAND or the BOBRO mount will fit please call SWFA and ask them. Phone Number: (972) SCOPE-IT (972-726-7348) Im sure the Badger Ordnance ones will fit they make them is Steel and Alloy and the steel ones are too heavy for words Ive had them. I also prefer the one piece type of system that is slightly forward.

I've been reading good things about the $229 Aadland 1-pc mount. I used the Armalite 30mm 1-pc mount in the past to mount a NF on an AR10T. At $90 it worked fine, but I'm really considering the Aadland with my next scope purchase.

Our mount does work well with T-Pals:



Even if you don't need the 20 MOA slope, it won't hurt anything with that scope.

If you do not want any slope built in, Aadmount might not work for you.

If you can deal with built in 20MOA, Aadmount is easily my top recommendation for a non-QD mount.  I probably have more mileage with these mounts than almost anyone else out there except for JonA, of course), since i use them almost exclusively for my articles.

My recommendations for Ar mounts are usually quite simple:

-non-QD: Aadmount

-with QD levers: Bobro or ADM

It does not mean that other mounts out there are not good.  It simply means that these are the ones I have the most confidence in through personal experience.

ILya is absolutely correct.  There ARE other mounts out there that compare in quality and function.  However, I've not found a one piece mount, semi-QD (or non-QD), that compares in value to the Aadmount.  I've been a long-time hater of AR-type rifles, but finally broke down and got one.  After considerable research and comparison, the Aadmount was the only one that met my very strict requirements and maintained a reasonable cost.  I hope Jon produces a QD mount.  If so, I will own one.  If you must have a QD, ILya's recommendations are solid (get it... solid... scope mounts...).

Near Mfg. has to be included in any discussion of one-piece mounts.  Richard (Near) manufactures beautiful, yet beefy/rock-solid one piece mounts for tactical or hunting applications.  They aren't cheap; I use his tactical mount, called the Alpha Mount, exclusively on all of my huge inventory (5 long guns).  I also paired the mounts with one of his rails.  I have spoken at length with several custom gunsmiths that were familiar with Richard's products.  To a person they said his rails were consistently the straightest available.  I call his hardware functional artwork.  

Yes, he is that good.

I have limited experience with Near mounts, but the ones I have seen looked very good.
