      I just got an early #18 mount with the split non-continuous rail.

      I have tried attaching an Aimpoint 30mm low mount, type seen here: http://www.opticsplanet.net/aimpoint-sr-30-mm-x-wide-rings.html

      as well as an arms #19 low dual mount.

      On both the recoil bar of the detachable mount would not fit in between the grooves on the rail of the old #18 mount.

      Is it possible that the #18 mount is out of spec in this area? I had a full rail mount, the more recent production style and no issues. So I'm curious if this is a mount issue, or if the old split mounts were made this way and only accept certain rings from back in the day.

      Any help is appreciated.

      I believe they are the lowest that will work. You get a ring that is lower and your front and rear "bell" on the aimpoint will hit the rail you're mounting it on, preventing the mount from setting in place on the rail.

      I'm talking about this low one. http://www.opticsplanet.net/picture-1-aimpoint-sr-30-mm-x-wide-rings.html

      There is another one that is slightly higher. (second pic in the upper left actually I think)
