I started thinking about a quick disconnect scope base for a traditional style 1" scope to mount on an AR. The Burris PEPR is standing out. Any other suggestions or experiences? One piece or two separate rings? Height... cowitness or bottom 1/3 cowitness, or does it matter (would use with flip-up sights, not front tower, and would not use together due to magnification)? Reliable return to zero obviously a must-have.

I've been looking for a QD scope base also. I'd love to be able to take my Nikon P-223 scope on and off easily so that I can use bus when I want and scope when I need to.

I found these on Midway, been waiting for a good price and looking for reviews on them.

I'm not sure if any one is better than the other, just sharing what I've looked at.

I love the Bobro on my Blackout.

Also have an American Defense but I have not used it enough to pass judgement yet. The one ting I don't like about the AD mount is the optic can turn as you tighten the rings up.

I ended up with a PEPR. I don’t know if I like the QD concept. Latch, unlatch, adjust, repeat. You can easily lose the adjustment when removed, so it’s really only “quick” in the “disconnect.” Seems to take much longer to put on than just tightening nuts.
