Aside from the GG&G AR15 Vertical Grip, another retro eBay bargain which L119A2 builders have been indulging in, is the GG&G Accucam QD Aimpoint T1 Mount with Integral Lens Covers.

I think I’m right in saying this particular mount has been discontinued by GG&G, since it no longer appears on their website.

It’s not a new design. As can be seen from its cantilever format, it’s from an age before continuous top rails were common. Back then, it was a way of squeezing an optic, magnifier and rear BUIS on to a flat top upper receiver.

Given that the L119A2 has a monolithic top rail – an improvement over continuous ones, as there’s no join between hand guard and upper receiver – use of the GG&G is more likely an overhang from the L119A1 era.

Age notwithstanding, it’s a great mount with a decent QD system; and – something the T1 really does benefit from – Butler Creek flip-up lens covers.

The front cover is a tight push-fit and it’s possible to sandwich some lens protection between it and the T1’s subjective lens, if required.
