Scalarworks LEAP Aimpoint Duty RDS  mount


State of the art Aimpoint Duty RDS 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.


The Leap is the strongest Aimpoint Duty RDS 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 Duty RDS 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 Duty RDS mount 7075-T6 vs 6061-T6

Every Leap mount is CNC milled 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.

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 Micro 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 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 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.

    Holy fuck I will never buy a mount unless it’s scalarworks ever again

    This mount is not only secure once mounted to your rifle’s rail, it will maintain its zero if removed and replaced. I’ve done this on three separate occasions to confirm. Not a cheap mount, and worth every cent.

    Haven’t gotten to the range to zero yet but this fit my duty rds perfectly, as expected, and places it at just the right height. I’ll definitely be looking for more mounts in the future.

    Matches Perfect to my aimpoint magnifier 1.57 scalaworks mount. I’ve been waiting for leap/10 for my comp m5s. Now I have Perfect height match. I hated my aimpoint mount that came with my comp m5s.

    Glad this lower 1/3 came out for the compm5s later I’ll look into higher mounts but good job
