I ran across this graphic on the Geissele Automatics Facebook page today and wanted to share it with you guys. I’ll be the first to admit I have been a little out of the loop on the Geissele Super Precision Scope Mounts but this graphic surprised me as I had no idea they were offering 3 different variations of the AR15 / M4 Scope Mounts. These mounts are basically the same mounts that Geissele builds for the Unites States SOCOM (Special Operations Command) and have been getting rave reviews by those that have had their hands on them so far. 

Geissele Automatics Super Precision Scope Mounts

The AR-15/M4 Super Precision series of scope mounts are optimized for use with an AR-15/M4 upper. The mounting surface spans 7 picatinny sections and utilizes 4 shear lugs. These mounts use Geissele’s update of the classic nut and bolt method for clamping the mount to the picatinny rail, which is the most secure method of attaching your scope to your weapon. Each nut and bolt combination provides 1,400 pounds of clamping force, much more than any lever mounting arrangement.

The Geissele Automatics Super Precision scope mounts are available in a Standard, Extended and Hyper Extended configuration with the additional options of 30mm or 34mm ring size, a 20moa built in Cant and your choice of 7075-T6 Aluminum or 2099 Aluminum Lithium Alloy.  You can take a look at and order your own here: https://geissele.com/ar15-m4-super-precision-scope-mount.html

Seekins Precision 1-Piece Scope Mount

Posted on April 13th, 2016 by ar15news

I’ve heard that Seekins Precision will be releasing information on their new Scope Mount very soon. Not sure exactly when but until then I thought I would share a sneak peek at the new mount. These photos were posted on their Facebook page.

The photos that Seekins Precision has shared so far show a cantilever style 30mm scope mount that has two picatinny rail clamps that are secured by two large Torx screws. No word yet if there will be other styles, models or additional options to choose from but this version looks awesome. As you can see it looks great with both smaller 1-4 and 1-6 optics as well as larger magnification optics. Keep an eye out for more information on the new Seekins Precision Scope Mounts coming soon.

The combination of high quality construction, light weight and easy to use QD system make it my favorite T-1/T-2 mount to date. They told me there were working on some new mounts and low and behold, a few weeks later they are now introducing their new Trijicon MRO QD Mount which according to Scalarworks is the worlds lightest QD model.

Geissele’s Sneak Peek Christmas Present

Posted on December 29th, 2015 by ar15news

In case you missed it, just before Christmas Geissele Automatics gave AR owners all over the country a Christmas present of sorts by releasing a sneak peek at a couple of new products that will be coming soon. As you may already know, Geissele has been working on a new Scope Mount for a DOD (Department of Defense) customer since early 2015 and will be available for consumer purchase in 2016.

As if Geissele Scope Mounts weren’t good enough, just prior to Christmas they released an image that had every AR owners mouth watering. In the image (see below) there was a sneak peek at the new Geissele Ambi Charging Handle and Geissele T1/T2 micro red dot mount. The Ambi Charging Handle looks like it has a nice curve to the handles which should help you really get a good grip on it for ease of use and the T1/T2 mount looks low profile but stout.

Another new product coming soon is a new scope mount for the 50 BMG rifle. As you can imagine, due to recoil you can’t just use any old scope mount on a 50 BMG. The new Geissele 50 BMG Scope Mount will feature a 3 bolt design for the mount to rifle interface as well as a 3 bolt design for the scope ring caps to clamp on and hold the optic nice and tight over a larger surface area. If you own a 50 BMG rifle, this might be something to look into!

As you can see, Geissele isn’t just sitting around happy to be making Triggers and Rails. They are working continually to add more and more to their lineup all the time. Now if we could just talk Bill into making complete rifles we would be all set. 🙂 For more information on Geissele product, head on over to www.Geissele.com.

Kinetic Development Group SIDELOK MRO Optic Mount

Posted on December 18th, 2015 by ar15news

KDG has just introduced the newest member of their SIDELOK family. The new SIDELOK MRO Optic Mount is you guessed it…for the new Trijicon MRO. The new SIDELOK quick attach/release mounting system is pretty amazing. With just one hand you can release the optic from the rifle and then push it back on and it locks in place. If you’re one of the many people who purchased the new Trijicon MRO red dot, you should definitely give the KDG SIDELOK MRO Mount a look.

The Sidelok is a revolutionary new mounting system for optics. The patented cam system locks the mount down onto picatinny without the need of tools, side levers, or huge knobs. The release system allows users to change out there optics on the fly with less hassle. The 2 levels of locks (MRO Mount) ensure the optic will not move unintentionally, maintaining zero for the shooter, and returning to zero when remounting in same position after removal. This mount utilizes a lower 1/3 co-witness.

Specifications:

Height (From top of Picatinny Rail): .88″

Width: 1.10″

Length: Base – 2.25″

Weight: 2.9 ounces (7.0 ounces total with optic attached)

Features: Lower 1/3 Co-witness

Finish: Black Anodized

Compatibility: Trijicon MRO Red Dot Optic

Rainier Arms has secured the exclusive intro and a special intro price on the new mount at just $119.95. Get in on this intro special at www.RainierArms.com.

American Defense Manufacturing just announced a few new red dot sight mounts. They are already well known for their Quick Detach scope mounts and red dot mounts but are adding a couple of cool options by way of a 33 degree and 45 degree offset mount for the Aimpoint T1/T2 red dot sight and the Trijicon RMR red dot sight.

American Defense Mfg T1 RMR offset QD Mounts

As you are probably already aware, engaging targets at close range with a traditional magnified scope is not an easy thing to do. Many guys will install offset backup sights which can take more time to align the front and rear sight if you need to rapidly acquire a target. By using an offset red dot sight mount you get the benefit of not having to align anything, just put the red dot where it needs to be and fire.  

Choose between 33 and 45 degree offsets and Left or Right hand style. There are other options out there but until today, none were being offered by ADM with their trusted QD system which is a big deal. You can check these out for yourself at the links below.

Arisaka Defense Releases Inline & Offset Picatinny Mount

Posted on September 25th, 2015 by ar15news

Arisaka Defense always puts out high quality products. I personally use a bunch of their products from Light Mounts to complete Flashlight Builds. Just this morning I received the following press release for their Inline and Offset Picatinny Mount. As you all know, KeyMod and M-LOK rails are great but what do you do with all of your lights, lasers, grips, etc. that only mount to Picatinny rail sections? You need an adapter like the ones Arisaka just released to make them compatible. What I really like about these mounts is that they are adjustable from side to side to allow a wider range of lights and accessories to fit and the KeyMod mounts incorporate the new patent pending Inverted KeyMod Screws from BCM instead of the normal. Take a look at the press release and pics below for these great mounts.

Press Release:  Arisaka Inline & Offset Picatinny Mounts Released

Arisaka is pleased to release our new Inline and Offset Picatinny Mounts. The Inline version is available for KeyMod and M-Lok, while the Offset version is available for KeyMod, M-Lok, and the Centurion Arms CMR. Both KeyMod mounts utilize Bravo Company’s Patent Pending Inverted KeyMod Screws.

Arisaka Defense Inline and Offset Picatinny Mounts 1

The Inline Picatinny Mount is designed for rail systems that feature 45 degree attachment interfaces, like the BCM KMR, Geissele SMR MK4 and MK8, Mega Arms MKM/MML/Wedge Lock, and Midwest Industries Generation 3 handguards. The height and adjustable side-to-side spacing place Picatinny based lights like the Surefire X300 and Inforce WML close to the handguard and within easy reach at the 1:30 or 10:30 clock positions.

The Offset Picatinny Mount is a combination of our Offset Scout Mount and a short Picatinny rail section, and is designed for rail systems that do not have 45 degree attachment interfaces like the Noveske NSR, Midwest Industries Generation 2, and SLR Rifleworks Solo Series handguards. Like the inline version, the mount places Picatinny based lights at the optimal 1:30 or 10:30 clock positions. The mount allows the user to adjust the lateral positioning of the Picatinny rail section for additional clearance next to front sights or other accessories.
