Scalarworks LEAP Aimpoint Micro T-2 mount


State of the art Aimpoint Micro T-2 mount.

Designed for shooters who want the lightest, strongest, and least obtrusive quick-detach optic mount possible.


The Leap Mount returns to zero on every re-installation, and holds zero under the heaviest recoil. Guaranteed.

The Leap is the strongest Aimpoint Micro T-2 Quick-Detach mount we've ever tested.

We put a variety of QD mounts on a digital test stand, capable of exerting up to 1500lbs of force, and analyzed load versus displacement data for each. We then used everything we learned from these tests to refine our original design, culminating in the Leap; a quick-detach mount that is both the lightest and strongest on the market today.

Scalarworks LEAP Aimpoint Micro T-2 mount clamp

A highly efficient clamp design guarantees precise operation and unprecedented rigidity: It features an oversize hooded thru-hole to buttress the thumbscrew's shank, which is the maximum possible diameter to fit a Picatinny channel. A pair of hardened steel precision ground pins is press fitted to the clamp and act as guides.

Scalarworks LEAP Aimpoint Micro T-2 mount FEA

During it's development, the Leap mount was subjected to dozens of stress tests before a single prototype was ever made. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) helped extract every bit of performance from every gram of material. This cutting edge design process has resulted in the most efficient mount design possible.

Scalarworks LEAP Aimpoint Micro T-2 mount 7075-T6 vs 6061-T6

Every Leap Mount is CNC milled from 7075-T6 billet, which has vastly superior mechanical properties to 6061-T6, and is used where ultimate strength and durability outweigh cost considerations.

Scalarworks LEAP Aimpoint Micro T-2 mount Low Profile

Smooth is Fast

Narrower than most bolt-on mounts: the Leap has no protruding levers or knobs to rap your knuckles, or get caught on clothing, gear, and surroundings.

Scalarworks LEAP Aimpoint Micro T-2 mount Quantum Quick-Detach system


Quick-Detach Mechanism

The Scalarworks® Quantum Quick-Detach mechanism is completely recoil proof, while requiring only enough torque to firmly clamp onto a Picatinny rail. By decoupling torque from vibration resistance, the Quantum QD mechanism is intuitive, fast, and self adjusting, all without needing an imprecise knob or obtrusive lever to keep it from shaking loose. The Quantum QD's recessed head is carefully designed to deflect external impacts, while letting you take the mount off in under 3 seconds, with or without gloves.


The Leap mount is the most deliberate evolution of our original Low Drag Mount design.

Scalarworks Leap Aimpoint Micro T-2 Mount generation 1

From it's introduction in 2014, the original Low Drag Mount featured our recoil proof Quantum Quick-Detach mechanism, a precision telescoping clamp with world class return-to-zero, and a CNC milled base with the industry's highest strength-to-weight ratio, all while being as low-profile as a fixed bolt-on mount.

Scalarworks Leap Aimpoint Micro T-2 Mount generation 2

In 2015, the second generation Low Drag Mount became the first Quick-Detach mount ever to be CNC milled from 7075-T6. It's external edges were rounded to minimize stress risers, the thumbscrew was Black Nitrided, and a pair of integral shear lugs was added to the clamp to further improve lateral impact resistance.

Scalarworks Leap Aimpoint Micro T-2 Mount generation 3

Today, the Leap mount features a re-engineered base with a forward lean to provide more room for magnifiers, and chamfered side pockets for improved thumbscrew access. The re-designed clamp has discreet hardened steel pins and a stopper to indicate when it's sufficiently open to clear a Picatinny rail.


Worry-free, factory built optic bundles.

    Received my 1/3 LEAP/Micro mount and Aim Point T2 bundle. Nice engineering of the mount.

    Fit my M1A Scout perfectly to allow use of either the iron sights or T2 Red dot without having to remove the red dot or the mount. Thank you for advising me to order the 1/3 mount. The larger open space in this mount ensures that I have a clear view of the front sight when using the iron sights.

    The light weight of the mount and the red dot is a real benefit since the M1A Scout rifle with a loaded magazine is heavy. The Lenspen is a nice touch. I had wondered where I was going to get something to clean the lenses on the red dot if they got dirty.

    Thanks again.

    Impressed with how such a lightweight, skeletonized mount is extremely durable. I also noticed there was no backward/forward play before cranking it down to the rail. Rock Solid/Secured mounting with just your fingertips! Great Engineering developing these mounts and for the price of the bundles, there is nothing that can beat that.

    I have been running a Geissele T1/T2 mount which is a very nice Great mount, But i just replaced it with the Scalarworks Leap mount, and WOW. This thing screams PERFECTION, light weight, lock up is fantastic. Smooth,audible, and very crisp kn the lock ip clicks. Holds zero and return to zero is awesome. I love having to use zero tools to take it off and lut it on and yet not have to worry about it falling off. I did not care for the big nut on the G mount. Needed tools and looks odd. The Scalarworks Mount is TOP Notch, top floor, the Penthouse. Amazing. Now i need to get 2 30mm scope mounts to swap out my G mounts. The Scalarworks scope mounts have a built in level feature. They thought of everything. Its a must buy.
    Thank you Scalarworks for Producing TOP Tier stuff

    I just completed a 2 day tactical carbine class. It was a torrential downpour virtually the entire time.  

    After about a 1000 rounds, I was watching other red dots fall off or flat out fail from the moisture. I watched everything with threads that weren’t loctite’d on rattle off of guns. I saw people struggling with the weight of their water logged equipment. 

    This lightweight bundle ran through the courses of fire without a hiccup.  Malfunction drills, numerous shooting positions,  bounding drills, etc… I didn’t lose my zero once, the Aimpoint performed flawlessly, the light weight of this bundle helped me tremendously, and the mount never loosened up, not even a click. 

    Thank you guys for building what I consider the very best mount on the market. As the saying goes… buy once, cry once… this bundle is worth every penny.

    Amazing. Just got mine in today and its an amazing feat of engineering. And the weight (or should I say lack thereof) is ridiculous! Folks, if you’re trying to understand how light we are talking about consider this: an unloaded OEM Glock 19 magazine weighs 2.4 oz. The Leap Micro weighs 1.6 oz. Almost a full ounce less than an UNLOADED double-stack, polymer mag. I started picking up random things off my work bench just to compare the weight. Scalarworks are clearly sorcerers.

    I bought this optic a couple months ago from Scalarworks, and I have been incredibly impressed by both the optic and the mount. Kudos to Scalarworks for shipping the optic installed to the mount with nylok treated screws to the correct torque. Packaging was nice, and I appreciated the free stickers and lens pen that came included.

    The mount attached to my rifle securely and has maintained zero after being removed and reattached multiple times. Very impressive. Unlike some of the competition QD mounts, the Scalarworks mount will not damage your receiver and it is true return to zero.

    After owning a couple T2 micros, a Comp M4, and the Comp M5, I feel that any future Aimpoint optic purchases I make will be the Comp M5.

    This mount is absolutely second to none, it is the most intuitive and well thought out mount in the industry. The fact that the bundle is put together PROPERLY and ready to go out of the box is a nice bonus. Everything from the customer service to the product and swag is top notch. Lastly, the owner is an awesome guy, we spoke over the phone several times about several things. He is a gun guy through and through and knows his stuff. I will absolutely only be using scalarworks mounts from now on.

    This is as good as it gets. Installed with my Holosun micro on my BCM 16″ in a matter of minutes. Once you try this quick detach method, you will never want to go back to a traditional mount. It just makes no sense with this as an option. And, it’s lighter than any of the others on the market. Win, win. Just forget about the extra cost and buy it. You get what you pay for!

    This is the mount to get! I Searched for several weeks trying to find the perfect mount. I had searched every well known brand out there and was close to purchasing one, the. I came across the name scalarworks and decided to check them out. What caught my attention was the amazing design, looks matter to me. After seeing the round knob i was not sure at first because I was so used to seeing latches, or super quick releases. Finally between reviewing how well this mount seemed for others I wanted it. This mount is so light weight and looks beautiful paired with my Aimpoint T2. The twist button knob is actually perfect and I’m glad it is not anything else. It’s quick and easy to put on and take off with no hassle. It is light weight and strong. I wanted a light weight, strong and beautiful build and that’s what I got. Packaging was great got some goodies, to me a company that cares about the looks and packing of their product says a lot and to me that type of attention to detail as such says one thing. They care about their product and care about what their customers think about the product. Only thing I wish scalarworks would do is advertise more because I almost bought the wrong product before I saw their name.

    I’m very pleased with the LDM mount ! I used to use the Larue mounts but really didn’t like the level sticking out to the side. When I came across the LDM it seemed like the ideal mount, but I wasn’t sure about the mounting system. When I received my LDM my concerns of the mounting system went away. The detent on the mount is strong enough to get it nice and secure on your rifle while still being easy to remove. These mounts are expensive but well worth the cost !

    After several months of hard use, I can honestly say I will only be purchasing Scalarworks mounts for my red dot sights from now on. I never review products, but this is one deserving of praise.

    The Scalarworks mount is most remarkable to me in the fact that its very existence is an unlikely phenomenon. From a design standpoint- common knowledge is that gear comes with pros and cons, with positive and negative trade-offs. They say you can’t have lightweight without sacrificing strength, you can’t have strength without it being heavy, or if you manage to find something that is both lightweight AND robust, it’s going to be unaffordable. The Scalarworks LDM manages to bend the rules by being unbelievably light, incredibly strong, and yet it is still sold at an affordable price. Needless to say, I am beyond impressed…
    …and I haven’t even gotten to the best part yet.

    I am a USMC Veteran and a current Law Enforcement Officer. I can break and abuse equipment with the best of them. I don’t like “extra” on my rifles. I don’t have an affinity for bells and whistles and as a rule I have always preferred a fixed mount for an optic because I don’t like extra parts, pieces, gadgets, or gizmos sticking off my rifle. I recognize the importance of a quick-detach mount for an optic but have never use them because I prefer the streamlined, bombproof, and simplistic design of fixed mounts that you can rely on.

    Yet despite all that, here I am. The Scalarworks LDM is the first QD mount I have found that meets my own criteria for hard use and after testing several, it was the only product that managed to persuade me to use a QD mount at all. Not only is it light, strong, and affordable, but it has a user-friendly and unique system that outperforms other mounting methods while maintaining a repeatable return to zero if you take it off. And it does all this while (in my opinion) managing to still look better than all of the other mounts on the market.

    Anyone interested in a QD mount needs to ditch the levers, clamps, and other methods and try out the Scalarworks system.

    Likewise, anyone interested in a fixed mount should also try the LDM as they will be pleasantly surprised to know that it is the only QD mount that retains all the benefits of a fixed mount.

    For lack of better words, when I recommend this product to people I find myself explaining it by saying that it’s essentially a tool-less, quick-detach fixed mount.

    I was inspired to write this review after returning to the website earlier this morning and ordering my *second* LDM + Aimpoint T-2 bundle to go on another rifle. I was pleasantly surprised when halfway through typing this review, I just received my shipping shipping notification via email for the second order. That was quick!

    Thanks Scalarworks for combining a superior product with great customer service!

    So I decided to try scalarworks. I purchased the T2 bundle. Very professional company. Excellent shipping. But hears the thing. I never write reviews unless I am satisfied beyond belief. We’ll hear I am. This optic bundle is amazing. Tried it on a sig 556 R and a AR pistol. Both co witness absolute perfectly with no adjustments. Very impressed! Then the proof was this weekend. I printed the aimpoint targets to sight in the t2. No need for them. totally calibrated from 50 to 200 yards from scalarworks. I was shooting empty shot gun shells on top of a beer bottle at 100 yards. I can’t say enough the quality of the mount and the optic. Thank you scalarworks for a precision job. Made me smile at the shooting range could not miss!! Why don’t you make a matching mount for the aimpoint magnifier! I’d buy one.

    Purchased the Aimpoint Micro T2 bundle and could not be more pleased. This is a fantastic product combination. The transaction was superb. I purchased the bundle on July 7, 2016 and paid for the expedited shipping. The bundle arrived Saturday the 9th before noon at my house. The mount itself is very high quality and the fact that it comes already mounted to spec in a very professional package was the icing on the cake. I will highly recommend Scalarworks to everyone and will buy from them again! Thanks for a great product bundle.

    Purchased this bundle recently and all I can say is that the mount and optic are awesome. Having owned all of the other major brand mounts I can say that I hands down like this one the best. The mounting system extremely light and very easy to use. While I haven’t had the opportunity to beat on it yet I have no doubts that I will hold up just as well as any other mount on the market. To top it all off Scalarworks has amazing customer service and fast shipping. All of my optics and mount will be coming from here from now on. Hopefully they will expand their line to traditional scope mounts!

    I discovered this mount while checking reviews for the Aimpoint T2.(mrgunsandgear video)I liked the look. I checked the Scalarworks website and and was quite pleased to see they had the bundle available for a better price than I had seen anywhere else for this particular bundle.I ordered on 3/3 and on 3/5 it was at my door. First thing I noticed was how nicely the finish on the LDM matches the finish on the T2, and of course the flush mounted thumbscrew. Between the first class customer service and the quality of the product I could not be happier.

    After watching Mr.gunsngear’s Aimpoints T2 micro review on YouTube I noticed that the mount he was using was clean and very low profiled. So after doing some mount comparisons with respectable competitors I went with the winner, the Scalarworks LDM100. Couldn’t be happier with this mount, one of the most impressive parts of the mount is how fast & easy it can be installed or removed from the rail. My next mount purchase will be Scalarworks mount for the Trijicon MRO.

    Saw the videos from Travis Haley and Larry Vickers and thought those look pretty damn good. With tier 1 guys running them & “zero hold” claims I decided to research em a bit further and then order one for my Aimpoint T1. Purchased a 1/3 lower LDM for my 14.5″ BCM lightweight competition gun. Got it mounted and headed to the range to zero the gun (50yd zero). With the gun zero’d and after about 100rds sent down range I decided to pull it off and mount on my 11.5″ to play around and check zero. Most rounds sent hit slight low/left. Re-installed on the 14.5″ and confirmed zero. She was dead on and I was very surprised! Awesome quality lightweight mount with a rock solid zero! Just received 2 more for my other guns!
