The Leap is the strongest Trijicon RMR 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 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.

Scalarworks LEAP Trijicon RMR 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.

Smooth is Fast

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

Scalarworks Leap Trijicon RMR mount with 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 ever 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, factory built optic bundles.

    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.
