Safariland has released its new AR-15 scope mount line designed specifically for flat-top receivers with Picatinny rails. Three models are available to meet the needs of law enforcement, military and sport shooters, according to the company.
Produced from 6061-T6 aluminum, Safariland AR-15 mounts are made with top caps and bases that reduce weight. Each top cap is secured by four screws to prevent movement of the scope or red-dot sight. The corners are rounded to remove sharp edges and lessen the chance of snagging on other gear and webbing. The SAF-S30C, SAF-D30 and SAF-S30 are the proper height to co-witness with iron sights, and range from $89.95 to $129.95.
The SAF-S30C is a single-ring mount adjusted forward to enable the use of night vision or magnifiers as needed. The receiver's mounting base is wider than the mounting ring, providing maximum stability and strength for attaching to the receiver.
The SAF-D30 is designed for use with telescopic sights, and has two rings integral with the mounting base. A single clamp is secured by two military spec thumb knobs to maximize strength and rigidity. The forward ring is cantilevered to allow the scope to be positioned forward enough for proper eye relief.
The SAF-S30 is designed for 30mm red-dot sights, requiring single-ring mounting, and is wider at the base than the mounting ring, providing maximum stability and strength to be attached to the receiver.
