Was unsure about which mount I needed, but was able to get a super quick response through e-mail. They were spot on and I love the mount. Highly recommend them.
I really like the mount you can barley even see it with the gun attached. Made another order for four more mounts yesterday and have my eye on a lot more!
It is normal to have variances from weapon to weapon as we all know different magazines can have different results in each builds lower. I have never met the owners or receive any compensation other than amazing customer service just to start off. I review anonymously as I can say whatever I choose to good bad or ugly and give everyone the truth. If I have an issue you all will read about it probably from "anonymous" which would probably be me. After receiving my AR9 mount although having some wiggle room was annoying I do have to say but I accepted it as I know there is no "Mil spec" with this type of build. After reading a reviewers post about the fitment being tight, I was jealous as I would always rather it "tighter" ;) You can always take a little material off but adding it takes a lot more finesse to get it right. Either way being that this company really strives for perfection they go above and beyond. The owner went out of his way to custom mill a replacement and have it sent out even though it wasn't necessarily Spartan Mounts issue in my opinion. Like I stated earlier they really strive for perfection which I admire. Either way I will test out the new one I receive and let you all know. If it is too loose, let them know...If it is too tight, file some off as you are really close, if it is just right disregard this as this will be the majority of folks. Hope this helps anyone thinking about ordering, Here is another tip. Send an email prior to ordering and let them know what magazines you use and maybe that will help them document what tolerances they need to make them with tighter tolerances so they favor the tighter fit rather than the looser fit. Data helps a lot and feedback helps iron out inconsistencies. I think Spartan Mounts recognizes that and it makes sense in how they seem to treat their customers. All you have to do is read the reviews to see the overwhelming praise of their customer service.
I disagree with the statement of the mounts being flimsy. In no way is that true these are solid and do not see them breaking at all under any instance of normal use. I did not find mine to be tight at all and quite the opposite. Mine was quite loose and I will be contacting them about my concerns. I KNOW that these guys 100% stand behind their products and WILL correct anything that should be corrected or could be. You are also incorrect on how you mount the mounts. You install into the mag-well of an empty weapon (duh), you level said weapon and pencil trace a line in an indiscrete place to mark your placement. Then you install wall plugs and or screws through said mount and viola! Success! Fitment problems certainly are a give as we are currently in uncharted waters here people. We are getting custom mounts for some weapons and magazines etc. that vary themselves. 1 AR9 Lower receiver may fit Glock mags perfect and another they may be a little more loose or snug. There are no MILSPECS or standards made yet like their is in the AR platform and even with that there are variances as well. Either way with that all said...Why write a mediocre review and complain when this company would definitely resolve any issues you had without issue? Some children are never happy I suppose. ;)
Just got my mount for my AR9. Bit disappointed for two reasons. 1st is it is quite flimsy . Bottom and back need to be wider and/or thicker. 2nd is the magwell post is not angled so when mounted plumb, the gun is not level. It is a bit tight, but that can be easily rectified.
Very strong mount, easy to install well built and well thought thru
These mounts are great! I was emailed personally from these guys asking how I like the product. I told them I hadn’t been able to install it yet but I’d write them a review whenever I did! Great product. Reaching out to you as a customer was awesome! No automated crap. If I have a problem I’m confident these guys will provide me with great customer service.
