IWC Logo NEWImpact Weapons Components just announced their new 45 Degree Offset Rotation Limited QD Mount for 1913 Picatinny Rail and it looks like it’ll be another winner for them.  I wanted to give you a sneak peek so you could get in on the pre-order now.  We will be reviewing one as well once they are available which should be in just 2 weeks.  The design is an extension of the already very popular THORNTAIL Light Mount in that it will utilize all of the same hardware and mounting cap as the THORNTAIL.  The idea was to put the QD mount as close to the center line of the weapon as possible which will give it the lowest profile possible.  The 45 Degree Offset QD Mount is machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum which means it will be very strong but very lightweight as well.  As with ALL Impact Weapons Components proucts, the 45 Degree Offset QD Mount is machined by Americans in Colorado!  Small Made in USA flag  Usually “Made In America” means a higher price-tag but that’s not how IWC thinks.  How’s less than $30 bucks sound?
