The Leap is the strongest Trijicon MRO 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 MRO 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 MRO 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 MRO mount 7075-T6
Scalarworks LEAP Trijicon MRO 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 Trijicon MRO mount Low Profile


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.

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 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, factory built optic bundles.

    Everything came very nicely packaged and very quickly too! I will be using Scalarworks for all my future optic and optic mount needs.

    110% satisfied. Works great looks awesome and holds zero exactly as advertised. Will be buying another one for my aimpoint nano.

    Got a 1.57 MRO HD bundle for my PWS Mk114 and it is perfect! The mount looks clean and is simple to operate. The mount has never come loose and I don’t see any reason why I would use a different QD mount for my 14.5 patrol rifle.

    Regarding the MRO HD it is my favorite red dot. Any issues of the previous MRO were addressed and the eotech style reticle really makes the dot crisper even with Astigmatism. I f you want something different than Aimpoint and from an American company with great values, The MRO HD is an excellent option for a CQB setup or as a standard LE/Civilian patrol rifle setup.

    Both the Scalarworks Leap/05 and Trijicon MRO performed flawlessly on my Daniel Defense m4v7.
    I highly recommend Scalarworks

    Great quality mounts and customer service. After receiving my order, I noticed a spot on front lense of the MRO that doesn’t come off, contacted Scalarworks customer service, they reviewed the issue and shipped the replacement the following day.
