Looking for the best absolute cowitness mount for the SP5K + aimpoint T2.

Can anyone recommend something?

You won't get absolute cowit with any mount for Aimpoint. Only cowit you have is lower 1/3. I have the B&T mount works well enough with the T2, but limited in what optic picatinny mount you can use (factory Aimpoint low mount works). I'd also check out MFI's ultra low mount, that looks to be compatible with more picatinny optic mounts out there than the B&T.

I bought the regular picatinny version, put my Bushnell TR-25 on it, and was a bit disappointed the dot basically hits at the top of the circle above the front sight. Not what I was looking for, but it does work.

I went with the B&T long mount and the LaRue LT661 QD base. I'm pretty sure that with a T2, you can't get low enough with the sight for an absolute co-witness. Even though the dot usually appears at the top of the front sight ring, I just can't bring myself to Dremel off the top of the ring.

The B&T short mount (BT-10266) won't work with the LaRue QD. You need the longer mount (BT-21241) because of the QD base length.

I like the ability to detach the T2 and reattach without loss of zero. LaRue's mounts are great for that. At LaRue, T2 with QD mount is $751, and I believe the LT661 QD base runs $107.

Here's the view through the sight:

I went with the B&T low mount.

Shout out to Chopstix Kid - thanks so much for spending the time showing me the mount/optics, and answering all my questions. Amazing customer service, I had a blast. Very happy to have walked away with the B&T mount, and two B&T PCC's. You rock!

On a side note - it would be cool if Aimpoint had a T2 that had an integral throw lever mount, the same height as a Bushnell TRS-25 for full co-witness.

I have those 2 same B&T's. They both are amazing and congrats on your acquisitions.
Congratulations! Looks like some serious firepower. Now you need 3 mounts.

The trigger on the KH9 is unreal...amazing in SA. In DA however... it was described to me as a 'recoil reduction trigger', because the pull is so long and heavy, and the trigger slap when it breaks makes your finger sting, apparently you won't notice that the round has been discharged. Haven't shot it yet, but I believe it. It's so heavy I don't think it could be pulled properly under stress, even when the adrenaline is flowing. Honestly I cannot understand why someone would put that trigger into their design...what wast Karl Brugger was thinking? You literally have to stand on the decocker to get it into DA, and at that point given the 30lb trigger pull (honestly if it was 40 or 50 I wouldn't be surprised) I think it may actually be more 'safe' than a safety. It's funny that the website likens the trigger to a Sig 26, because in feel and application it has zero in common. I'd love to measure the pull but I do not have a gauge that goes high enough.

That said - the KH9 does have some magical intrinsic feel to it (maybe just perceived on my part) that makes the whole rig feel higher quality than the APC9 somehow. There's just something about it...it feels odd and special. Sexy perhaps?
