For more general use setups 1.93" is fantastic and you'd likely adjust to it pretty quickly if you are using an optic with a forgiving eye box like a Razor or Kahles. Maybe less so with something like a Nightforce NX8 that is a little pickier about eye placement.
    I guess I'd need to find an optic that works for it. I'm looking at the other thread on LPVOs right now. I am leaning towards a Trijicon Credo HX at the moment because it seems like a good value but I don't know what kind of eyebox it has. I'm really intending this to be a genereal purpose rifle; I think the AR will always be my go-to gun but I might want to run this in some matches just for fun which is why I"m thinking of switching from a ACOG with an RMR to a 1-6x.

    I had this ACOG mount for a bit just to try it out:
    https://www.admmfg.com/ad-b3-c-cantilever-acog-base-2

    that brings the centerline up to 2.1" so that the ACOG could clear the rear sight and that felt comically tall. Maybe 1.9 wouldn't but the 1.7" setup I have on it now seem about ideal.

    Bobro, YHM, LaRue? Though then you'd have to play with how much the riser increases your height and then find a low mount to compensate properly.

    Yeah that's a pain. For example Manitcore makes this thing that replaces the entire top rail:
    https://manticorearms.com/product/x9...ngth-top-rail/

    But they say it raises it "about 1/2 inch" which if true would mean my optic center line would be 2" over and at that point I might as well just buy a 1.9" mount.

    I think I might just end up trying a 1.9" at this point to see how I like it and if I hate it I'll wait for that Badger mount.

    https://www.admmfg.com/ad-recon-sl-s...itanium-levers is 1.152" above the rail for a 30mm mount. Throw on the YHM 1/2 riser for 1.652", or the Bobro or LaRue riser for 1.777".

    https://www.griffinarmament.com/30mm...a-all-heights/ has a 1.1" option.

    I have all my LPVOs in 1.7” Badger COMM mounts. Yes they are hard to find, but get on several notification email lists. They are making them, but slowly like everyone else. I tried the 1.93” height for my LPVOs but found it was a little too high. The 1.7” is truly “just right” to be faster than a 1.5” but still comfortable in prone. You can always get a riser and a set of medium rings. Just check on the actual ring heights and you can get close to 1.7.”

    Badger 1.7 Mount

    I picked my Badger Ordinance mount from Weapon Outfitters.

    Last I saw on another forum there were more on order. You may want to give them a call or send an email.

    I mounted an NF NXS 1-4 in the 1.7 mount. Perfect height for myself, solid, and returns to zero. I think that my LMT would break in two before the mount would. Also, a standard ADM Recon mount mount with a 1/2 riser would put you at about the same height (real close). My Short Dot in an ADM mount on top of the 1/2 riser is about the same. Shooting off the bench the extra-height is nice.

    P.S. It looks like they may have the Tan (FDE) color in stock, but it's not permitting me to add it to my cart. I am sending an email and calling on Monday. If they have them in stock, then I will order another one. I don't really care which color it is at this point. I have been a die hard ADM user (multiple mounts), but Badger Ordinance makes great mounts (non-detachable).

    Update: I was able to add a 34mm mount to my cart. No Joy with the 30mm 1.7 Tan. It looks like only the Tan is in stock. My internet connection is fast and I am having problems with their website. I sent an email to confirm if the 1.7 mount is in stock.

    Badger C1 is the best. They have a good mil/leo discount too.
