New LaRue VFZ Mount

So apparently the best known mounts to everything AR has just gotten a little better.  LaRue tactical, who has been making arguably the best available mounting solutions around.  From the best optics mount, to the best flash light mounts, LaRue stands true to its creed, “Everything AR,” and has been making everything for the AR since 1980.

Well, Larue is now introducing the VFZ mount.  The VFZ mount is designed to hold an absolute zero when re-attaching optics.  Since LaRue mounts were pretty much the best mount I’ve ever used on a optic for a quick detach and re attach feature ( and even with the old mounts they held zero quite well), I was extremely excited to see this posted on AR15.com by LaRue:

A new theory in the concept of clamping accessories to MIL-STD-1913 rails, VFZ applies the KISS principle to our entire line of QD mounts.

The new VFZ will be an option to all LaRue mounts that feature a locking lever, and are the perfect cost-effective solution for those who don’t need ultra-quick-disconnect capability. The VFZ takes less than a minute to install, using a supplied 3/8” wrench. Once installed on the firearm, index marks allow the user to remove the mount, then reattach to the same tension, providing unprecedented return to zero for a non-QD-levered mount. The unique vertical alignment of the clamp allows components that are structurally stronger than traditional cross-bolt designs.
