It's interesting that you are able to make that work for you. I generally have the scope's rear-most lens right right over the end of the charging handle -- meaning my nose is back a bit from the charging handle. Even then, my one-piece mounts that do not have a forward offset for the scope are positioned at the very last slot on the upper receiver's rail.

FWIW, the Warne one-piece mount I ordered has both the forward offset and a 20 MOA cant. You may not want the cant on your mounts, but a forward offset should make nose-to-charging-handle mounting a little easier.

My Warne XSKEL won't be immediately mounted. I currently have mounts for my 16" and 14" ARs -- some with older scopes and 30mm tubes. The new XSKEL will work with 34mm tubes. When I eventually upgrade optics down the road, the Warne mount will be all ready to go.

Warne allowed me to choose any of their XSKEL models. I thought about the QD model briefly. Then I realized QD is just a feature I really won't use, adds 1.5 ounces to the weight, and adds some metal bits that stick out -- and may eventually catch on something.

Furthermore, Warne threw in a torque wrench that is designed just for XSKEL's mounting bolts. Pretty easy decision to ix-nay the QD version.

I use mostly ADM but I like Bobro the best.
I also have Larue too but I like the ADM better.
ADM has so many sizes and configurations to fit everything and are priced very well.
Bobro fit and finish is the the best.
Not crazy about Larues mechanism otherwise they are OK.
YMMV
