Scalarworks LEAP/08 MounT
The Leap Mount returns to zero on every re-installation, and holds zero under the heaviest recoil. Guaranteed.
LIGHT MADE RIGHT
Engineered to be the lightest QD scope mount, without compromising an ounce of strength.
The LEAP/08 incorporates different structural elements to maximize overall performance.
A large diameter tubular section up front to resist torsion from side impacts, and a very wide I-beam bridge in the rear to resist recoil induced oscillations.
THE ONE RING
The Scalarworks® Ring was designed from the ground up to be stiffer, lighter, and easier to use than split rings.
A high-strength, precision fitted hinge ensures even pressure around your optic, without requiring the tedious and imprecise setup that split rings do.
Twin oversize CNC machined shoulder screws provide even tension and act as structural elements, making the entire ring assembly phenomenally rigid.
Each side of the Scalarworks® Ring is carefully lightened with a curvature continuous scallop that produces a very high strength-to-weight ratio.
The Scalarworks® Ring is wider than competing designs, providing more surface area to safely and securely hold your optic.
Scalarworks 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. Scalarworks then used everything they learned from these tests to refine their original design, culminating in the Leap; a quick-detach mount that is both the lightest and strongest on the market today.
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.
During it’s 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 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.
Scalarwork’s 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.
- Patented ClickDrive quick detach system is recoil proof, returns to zero, and can be removed in under 3 seconds
- ClickDrive features a stopper to show when it has opened enough to clear a rail
- Forward lean for additional magnifier space
- Low profile mechanism with recessed heads doesn’t catch on gear or knuckles
- Precision CNC machined from a single piece of 7075-T6 aluminum billet with 4140H steel hardware
