Scalarworks LEAP Trijicon RMR mount


State of the art Trijicon RMR mounts.

Designed for shooters who want the lightest, strongest, and most compact quick-detach red dot sight mount possible. The LEAP/04 redefines the standard for mounting your Trijicon RMR footprint compatible optic to your AR-15's Picatinny top rail. Available in 1.57” and 1.93” optic heights.


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

Scalarworks LEAP Trijicon RMR mount lightest weight


Engineered to be the lightest Trijicon RMR QD mount, without compromising an ounce of strength.

The LEAP/04 is precision CNC machined from all six sides out of a single piece of 7075-T6 Aluminum billet to ensure the ideal strength-to-weight ratio.

The Leap is the strongest Trijicon RMR Quick-Detach mount we've ever tested.

We tested a variety of quick-detach mounts on a digital test stand capable of exerting up to 1500lbs of force. We then used this data to refine our original Trijicon RMR mount design, culminating in the LEAP; a quick-detach mount that is both the lightest and strongest on the market today.

Scalarworks LEAP Trijicon RMR 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 Trijicon RMR 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.

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

Scalarworks LEAP Trijicon RMR mount Low Profile


Quick-Detach with no protruding levers or knobs.

The LEAP mount lets you shoot at your very best by eliminating snag hazards and putting nothing in the way of weapon manipulations. With its industry leading ClickDrive quick-detach mechanism, the Leap mount is symmetrical, protruding less than 7mm from either side of your Picatinny rail.

Scalarworks Leap Scope mount ClickDrive quick-detach system


The world's most efficient quick-detach.

ClickDrive is a tool-free quick-detach system that self-adjusts to any MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rail, making it a breeze to move your optic from rifle to rifle. Its low-profile thumbscrew and low-friction telescoping clamp require only the torque from your bare hand to securely attach the mount onto a rail. An integrated spring-loaded ball-detent exerts enough force against the crown to make it completely recoil proof. Since ClickDrive is a timed system, 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 Trijicon RMR 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 machined base with the industry's highest strength-to-weight ratio, all while being as low-profile as a fixed bolt-on mount.

Scalarworks Leap Trijicon RMR Mount generation 2

In 2015, the second-generation Low Drag Mount became the first Quick-Detach mount ever to be CNC machined 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 Trijicon RMR Mount generation 3

Today, the Leap mount features our strongest 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.


Professionally assembled at our factory in Easton, PA. All of our optics are sourced directly from the manufacturer. Our expert optics technicians visually inspect and function test every optic. uirBundles are assembled using high precision torque drivers to the optic manufacturer’s specifications.

    This mount is the best I have ever seen. It is durable and very light weight. Very satisfied and will buy more mounts in the future, well worth the money.

    Had exact same experience as Jeff above, but wanted to go ahead and let folks know again how top notch the customer service really is.

    I originally purchased the lower 1/3 but it sat to high to see any of my Troy flip up iron sights. I contacted scalarworks about exchanging for the absolute height and they quickly exchanged it. I had the absolute height back in a week and it lines up great with my irons if I want them up and it also works better with a Burris magnifier at absolute height as well. The mount itself is an excellent work of art. It locks up tight and returns to zero. I’ll be getting one for my MRO next.

      We’ve since then lowered the height of our RMR mounts a little to ensure proper co-witness with all iron sight setups.
