About the NcSTAR AR15 Adjustable Scope Mount QR
The NcSTAR AR15 Adjustable Scope Mount is a great option if you're looking to have a solid quick release mount for your scope. It does so by adding a quick release throw lever to your standard scope point meant for flat top railed receivers. Added to the feature list is the adjustable rear ring which will help accommodate a wide variety of scopes. The front ring is fixed and cantilevered for maximum clearance. The rings also come with inserts so that you can use either 30mm or 1" bodied scopes.
This scope mount is constructed out of solid aluminum and will give you the rigidity you need to mount your scope securely. Mounts that wobble or work lose will do you no good as they will mess with your zero and give you an inaccurate sight picture, causing you to miss unnecessarily.
Q: High mounts vs. low, what do I need?
A: Low mounts are for the scope to sit closer to the bore of the gun. Hunting style or full stock style guns where the stock is offset from the receiver will be best for this. You would use high scope rings on guns such as M4s where the stock is almost inline with the receiver. You could also use a high scope rings to compensate for your headgear such as a bulky mask.
Q: Is it bad to have a scope mounted high off a gun?
A: You will experience a big disparity in something called height over bore. The more offset the scope is in relation to the bore, the more difficult it may be for you to zero your scope. But once it is zeroed, you will have to keep in mind if you zero parallel to the bore then you will always hit at the height that the scope sits between the barrel. If you zero for the exact point of impact, the trajectory will only intersect at that particular point and you will be either high or low if shooting at any other distance. It is best and overall more simple to keep a scope that is closer to the barrel of your gun for this reason.
