Scalarworks LEAP Aimpoint ACRO mount


State of the art Aimpoint ACRO mounts.

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


Leap mounts hold and return to zero under any condition. Guaranteed.

Scalarworks LEAP Aimpoint ACRO mount lightest weight


Engineered to be the lightest Aimpoint ACRO QD mount, without compromising an ounce of strength.

The Leap is the strongest Aimpoint ACRO 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 ACRO 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 ACRO 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 ACRO 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 ACRO 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 Scope mount ClickDrive quick-detach system


The world's most efficient quick-detach mechanism.

A fluted crown requires only the torque from your bare hand to securely clamp the mount onto a rail, and uses the force from a spring-loaded ball-detent to make it completely recoil proof. Return-to-zero is guaranteed as long as the same person takes it on and off.


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

Scalarworks Leap Aimpoint ACRO 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 ACRO 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 ACRO 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.

    Got the leap mount paired with the Acro P2 and it’s such a rad combo. I run scalaworks mounts on all my optics that require mounts. The tension knob is miles ahead of any of the mounts with the big stupid clunky bolts that protrude from the side of the mount. Those look stupid. Rock solid lock up. Now the milf 3 doors down has been eying me ever since my package showed up. Her husband runs Warne mounts.

    Cannot beat ScalarWorks combos. Hands down best mounts in the business.

    It’s solid and well built BUT not compatible with Holosun AEMS. The grip part is more narrow so the AEMS claw although closed all the way does not clamp on to the mount at all. Dispite that, it has great use and potential that I am keeping it for a future red dot ?

    I own several Aimpoints and only use Scalarworks mounts. Best mounts in the business hands down.
