Rampart Range Day 18 – Scalarworks LEAP/Scope

Tuesday, May 29th, 2018

Unveiled at SHOT Show, the Scalarworks LEAP/Scope is their first foray into scope mounts. It weighs 5.48 oz.

First off, the rings have a very tight tolerance due to their hinged, captured design. It uses two oversized screw which are slip fit into the base. These don’t just cinch the ring but also act as part of the base. The rigs offer a smooth design, with no gaps to worry about.

The front is a tubular design which resists twisting while the rear is a wide, more traditional I-beam design. Additionally, the bridge is exceptionally wide for lateral impact resistance.The LEAP/Scope also incorporates Scalar’s popular Quantum QD System.

One thing they didn’t show at SHOT was their patent pending Leveling Screw. When you mount the optic, just don’t tighten all of the screws on the mount. It’s a one-handed adjustment thanks to the captured screw. Once it’s where you want it, you can torque down the rest of the mounting screws.

Scalarworks Launches Aimpoint Pro Quick-Detach Mount

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

Easton, PA – August 22, 2017 – Scalarworks is pleased to introduce the Low Drag MountTM for Aimpoint PRO sights; the lightest quick-detach Aimpoint PRO mount in existence.

Scalarworks_LDM210_aimpoint_pro_mount_lower-third_rear

The LDM/PRO is a lightweight, high-strength, low-profile, quick-detach optic mount for with MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rails, that is compatible with the Aimpoint PRO, Aimpoint ACO, Aimpoint CompM2, and Aimpoint CompM3, and most other 30mm tube sights.

The Scalarworks LDM/PRO features a user friendly and low-profile 30mm ring. The Scalarworks ring has a precision fitted alloy steel hinge that ensures even pressure around the optic, without requiring the tedious and imprecise setup that traditional rings do. Twin oversize CNC machined shoulder screws provide even tension and act as structural elements, making the entire ring assembly phenomenally rigid.

Like every Scalarworks Low Drag MountTM, the LDM/PRO has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any quick detach mount on the market. It’s tubular monolithic base is CNC machined from ultra high-strength 7075-T6 aluminum, and features our patented recoil-proof thumbscrew with ball detent mechanism. It also has the same precision telescoping clamp as our popular Aimpoint Micro, and Trijicon MRO mounts, which ensures a repeatable zero with each installation.

The LDM/PRO weighs less than 2.45oz (in lower-third height) which is less than half that of Aimpoint’s bundled QRP2 mount. The LDM/PRO is proudly made in the USA, and is available in both Absolute and Lower-Third Co-Witness height variants.

Rampart Range Day 2017 – Scalarworks

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Scalar Works debuted their new On Point Sights for the AR, developed in conjunction with Larry Vickers. I’m super impressed with these fixed iron sights. Not only do these Picatinny compatible sights look great and are easy to adjust with just your finger, they are also well thought out.

IMG_2125

When industry transitioned from a 20″ sight radius found in the M16, many back up sights, and fixed sights for that matter didn’t compensate for the shorter sight radius of the carbine. Consequently, the adjustment screws don’t actually offer what we would consider standard MOA adjustments. You may have noticed this phenomenon when adjusting your iron sights. The shift isn’t as predictable as we would hope during adjustments.

IMG_2123

Scalarorks sat down and did the math to reintroduce predictability in iron sight adjustment. While their adjustments are based on a 15″ sight radius, each set of sights comes with a easy to understand guide to determine amount of adjustment per click based on your radius.

Additionally, LAV realized that when we had transitioned from the M16A1 to the A2, we flipped the rear peep sights around so that we no longer looked at the flat face but rather the scallop. This can cause distortion due to light reflecting within the scallop. Consequently, the On Point Sights have flat peep sight faces.
