Scalarworks LEAP/08 30mm Scope QD Mount


Video | What’s Included | Specs | Pictures | FAQ | Restrictions | Related Info

We prefer the Scalarworks LEAP line of scope mounts. They are light. They are each built like a tank. They are extremely fast and easy to level (this is a painful process for most scope mounts). The LEAP line has a solid Quick Detach system that retains zero better than any other mount we’ve seen. As far as scope mounts are concerned… this is the cream of the crop. This Scope LEAP fits 30mm scopes with two variations to choose from: Standard 1.57″ and 1.93″. It also accepts Scalarworks’ Side KICK, an offset red dot mount that attaches directly to the LEAP for a more minimalist optic setup.

  • Compatibility: MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny* Rail
  • 30mm: See technical drawing in the User Manual for details.
  • State of the art 30mm scope mounts. Designed for shooters who want the lightest, stiffest, and easiest to use quick-detach scope mount possible.
  • LevelDrive™: An integrated set-screw lets you square your scope with your mount in record time.
  • Side KICK Compatible: Supercharge your sighting system by adding an optional reflex sight in the optimal offset position. Available from Scalarworks.
  • Engineered to be the lightest QD scope mount, without compromising an ounce of strength.
  • Smart Structure: The LEAP/08 base incorporates 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.
  • 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.
  • ViseRing™: A low-profile design doesn’t get in your way of viewing or manipulating your scope’s adjustment turrets. A high-strength, multi-link hinge eliminates the uncertain and tedious setup required by split rings.
  • Smooth Edges: LEAP mounts have no protruding levers, bolts, or knobs to rap your knuckles, or get caught on clothing, gear, and surroundings.
  • ClickDrive™: 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.

Which height should I get? Standard 1.57″ or 1.93″?
The Standard 1.57″ height works great if that’s what you’re used to, but we typically prefer the 1.93″ option as it allows for more of a “heads up” posture, especially when shooting while moving, and makes scoping with pro masks and respirators much easier.
