Has anyone tried the poor boy setup that Larue Offers? I ordered one when I ordered my 104 mount. Any thoughts on it or firsthand knowledge is welcome. I figure if LaRue is putting his name on it then it must at least be decent. I doubt it is better than the actual Eotech magnifier but I will at least have the FTS mount if I decide to get it, though I don't know if the Eotech will mount in it.
I just got it today and I love it. I will get some pics up later. They make a lower riser for those using the GG&G mounts. It is not listed on their website but if you call them they have them. You might call and see if you can switch it out.
Yep, not a bad deal at all when you want to try it out before getting the real deal. The great thing is you can get it from them, decide you like magnification and sell the tube for $50 and keep the mount for the real deal.
I looked through a guys that got the $30 one at I didn't like the aiming reticle inside. Not sure if the repurging that LaRue has done makes a difference in the glass but having the aiming reticel removed sure does help me. Worth the extra $20 in my book.
Good thread guys. Thanks. I've got a XCR on the way right now and I have an EOTech already. I want to buy a Poor Boy setup but I'm wondering if I should get the low version of the Poor Boy. I read a thread on ar15.com and it says that the low version of the Poor Boy mount (LT649) will line up with an EOTech that is mounted directly to the rails (no mount). My thought is that this setup might give a better cheek weld on an XCR. Doesn't the XCR have a lower stock postition compared to an AR? Please let me know if I'm thinking about this wrong.
The other question is: Will the low version of the Poor Boy mount allow for flip up BUIS to be mounted underneith the optic?
Aziator, was your issue with the low version because it was too low for a proper cheek weld or was it that the BUIS wouldn't fit underneith? I am still tempted to try to fit a Troy rear BUIS under the low version. I've looked at alot of pictures and it looks like it might work since the Troy is so low when folded. I'm thinking a lower cheekweld would be better on the XCR and I don't really want to buy a riser mount for my eotech.
