Ar scope mount

Looking for an inexpensive scope mount for a 1x4 scope for my AR. Would like something that provides clearance for Magpul BUIS on the rear underneath it. Thanks

I bought one of the $29 Weaver AR mounts at Walmart. Mine has a 1-6x. I don't have buis, so I don't know if it will clear it. I served well for me during deer season.

your scope will dictate the required scope mount height required for the BUIS clearance. i have a burris PEPR QD on my AR with a 1-4 scope and magpul BUIS. i would wager thats not your definition of cheap as it runs about 90 bucks regular price, but sales can be had. The PEPR mount has 1 inch of rise which is sufficient for clearance with my scope. so a 1 inch high scope mount should serve you well. (the 1 inch is from the rail to the base of the scope rings)

https://www.amazon.com/Locking-Inser...+blob+qd+mount

Green blob has some cheap QD mounts. It might clear the Magpul BUIS as they sit fairly low, but it will depend on the ocular bell diameter. I have always used a 1 piece QD mount for my 1-6X PA scopes with MI low profile sights. No problem with clearance.

Watch out with these guys. I ordered a couple sling attachment points from them and they were out of spec and wouldn't work.

Yeah I ordered a set of flip up sights and they were pretty cheap. The locking buttons didn't work really well and the mounts seemed off. They went in the spare parts bin. For $20 I wasn't too upset. You get what you pay for. My Midwest sights are top notch.

bought this for my 1-8 vortex but the qd springs ended up misaligning and bent once i tried to tighten it https://www.amazon.com/Offset-Piece-...qd+scope+mount

ended up getting an aero precision mount and havent looked back since https://www.amazon.com/Aero-Precisio...recision+scope

one thing ive learned is never go the cheapest route for scope mounts.
and if you do make sure to loctite everything

Those are nice mounts. The American Defense and Larue mounts are also very nice options if you want the QD.
