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 its 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
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

The Leap has no protruding levers, bolts, or knobs to rap your knuckles, or get caught on clothing, gear, and surroundings.

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


Our patented ClickDrive quick-detach mechanism is intuitive, self adjusting, and completely recoil proof. By decoupling clamping force from vibration resistance, ClickDrive doesn't need massive amounts of imprecise torque, and is not dependent on unreliable friction. A low profile recessed thumbwheel deflects 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 design.

Scalarworks Leap Aimpoint Micro T-2 Mount generation 1

From its introduction in 2014, the original Low Drag Mount featured our recoil proof ClickDrive 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. Its 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 an even stronger 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, properly torqued and threadlocked, optic bundles.

    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!

    I just installed the LEAP lower 1/3 for my T2 on my BCM 14.5″. I’m very impressed with the design and quality of this mount. Highly recommend!!

    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 !
