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 red dot sight mount possible. The LEAP/10 redefines the standard for mounting your Aimpoint CompM5s 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.


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

The LEAP/10 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 Aimpoint Duty RDS 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 Quick-Detach mount design, culminating in the LEAP; a quick-detach mount that is both the lightest and strongest on the market today.

Scalarworks LEAP Aimpoint Duty RDS 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.

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 Aimpoint Duty RDS 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 Aimpoint Duty RDS 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 Aimpoint Duty RDS 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 Aimpoint Duty RDS 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. Bundles are assembled using high precision torque drivers to the optic manufacturer’s specifications.

    Bought the 1.57″ when it came out then got rhetoric 1.93″ one. Awesome matches my magnifiers height and is solid.

    Top quality mount in every way. I bought this to put on my Aimpoint Duty RDS. The fit and finish is perfect. This mount is light, strong, and comes with Nylok thread locker on the screws. Installation was easy and I appreciate the torque specs being listed on the website as I use a torque wrench. Ordering was easy and shipping was fast. I couldn’t be happier with this product.

    The mount and value gets 5 stars. First time using scalerworks mounts and within a week I purchased another for my LPVO. The quality is superb and they “look” great. I was a bit disappointed with the optic itself but that really isn’t a scalerworks issue. I went with a comp m5 after loving my other Aimpoints, but most illumination settings are worthless and you get a huge ring that glows inside of the tube (mostly an indoor issue, even when adjusting to a setting more appropriate for indoors. It’s important to me as this goes on a home defense build). That said, from a value standpoint, the bundle is easily the best price you will find. The shipping was also incredibly fast. So outside of my small disappointment with the optic itself, I will look to scalerworks for all other mount (and combo) purchases before going anywhere else.
