    Default Aimpoint #10266 Optic mounting Question

    I’ve used this low profile base for years on my MP5’s with an Aimpoint Comp ML4. I would like to attach a red dot sight that’s designed for a Picatinny rail. Does anyone know if that type of optic will attach to my Aimpoint base? Thx

    Just some additional consideration for whichever optic you choose. The length of aimpoint 10266 rail section (the area where the mount clamps on to) is very short. I have an older T1 standard mount that works, but the LRP QD mount is too long. You would need to make sure that clamp portion on the mount will fit the 10266.

    Thanks! That is exactly my concern.

    Vortex Crossfire works with the old mount - I just put this combo on my Zenith. Sight picture is nice, just above the front sight post, well inside the hoop. Probably the similar Holosun will work too. Romeo 5 does not - needs a longer rail, has a fat screw. A little dremel work on the mounting base of the sight would probably be all it takes to rectify.

    The older Aimpoint/B&T 10266 mounts have a shorter rail than the current B&T 10266. But even the current mounts don’t fit everything.

    I just mounted a T2 on a newer 10266. It fits perfectly. If you get that mount with an older 10266, you'll be out of luck.

    Update: It works great with a Bushnell TRS-25 with a perfect co-witness!
