Safariland Introduces New AR 15 Scope Mounts

Jacksonville, FL June 18, 2010

Safariland™, a BAE Systems line of business, introduces its new AR15 Scope Mount line. Debuted at SHOT Show, the new Safariland AR 15 mounts are designed specifically for flat top receivers with Picatinny rails. Three models are available to meet the needs of military, law enforcement and sport shooters.

Machined from 6061-T6 aluminum, Safariland AR 15 mounts have skeletonized 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 mounts are secured to the receiver with mil-spec thumb knobs with integral washers that can be tightened by hand or with a regular screwdriver.

All three models are the proper height to Co-Witness with iron sights, and are available in either matte black or flat dark earth:
