    If you had a rifle with a Picatinny rail for a scope mount and you wanted to switch between two different scopes without having to zero or sight the scope every time you switch, what would your setup be? For example - switching between a 4-12 Coyote Special and let's say a fixed 3x scope.

    You could go the expensive route..OR your can try getting the QD UTG mount.
    Other than their quad rails (Both standard and free float) for the AR platform.. I don't much enjoy their designs most of the time they're quite bulky.. however.. the quick detach scope mount along with a riser because of the bell of my scope, it works out.
    With my 5.56 ARs it holds zero well.
    Just a thought.

    I have a Bobro QD mount and it does a pretty good job returning to zero.

    Warne manufacturing Quick detatch rings. They return to zero every single time when I change scopes on my AR. Made in Oregon!

    bobro, larue, adm, say they remain zeroed. but always confirm with actual shooting.

    I don't switch optics but if I did they would be in Larue mounts.
