    I cleaned the garage today, and uncovered a box that hasn't been opened in at least ten years. I found these inside, with no recollection of what they are. If it helps, they were with some other miscellaneous AR-15 items. Thank you in advance.

    In related news, I (obviously) don't need them. Maybe you do? Send me an offer.

    They are scope rails that fit inside an AR15 carry handle.

    Thank you, good sir!
    Of course I've forgot - I haven't used an A2 style rifle in forever. It's flat-tops for me!

    I served in the Marines from 1992-2000, and it was always iron sights or the M9. Expert qualified in both, every year. I sure miss those huge targets, compared to what I shoot at now. :)

    It sets down on top of your carry handle of the AR 15

    I tried one, once upon a time. It kept working loose. Irons from then on for that gun. The next gun had a flat top!

    I shim mine very tight and the nut has holes in it for a bar like a spanner. I put release compound on the handle, scuffed up the mount and jb welded it with the shims then let it sit very tight. You need one for each carry handle at that point

    Well. You figured that one out but didn’t come up with cutting the flats for the Tikka 595 barrels. Hmmm........:p:eek::eek::eek::eek:
    I tell my wife, when I come up with a good idea, “two brain cells collided and a spark happened!”

    Well... *** I **** didnt mean "homos" or "paedos" by it. :)

    Those carry handle mounts would be the equivalent of mounting your scope 4 - 5" above your bore line on a bolt gun.

    Nobody does that today. We got way better options. :)
