The newest generation of the Daniel Defense Aimpoint® Micro Mount gives users the option of both an absolute or lower 1/3rd co-witness with iron sights and Aimpoint’s popular Micro R-1, H-1, T-1, or T-2 optics. Its light weight, essentials-only design offers a snag-free, low-profile, reversible mounting option for shooters that do not require or desire a quick attach/detach mount. The mount features a recoil lug which interfaces with the bottom of the optic and prevents the energy from recoil and counter recoil from transferring to and damaging the factory mounting screws. This further increases durability and ensures a repeatable zero shot after shot. The Aimpoint® Micro Mount features our Patented Rock & Lock® attachment system and secures to any MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny Rail with two slotted machine screws. These fasteners thread into stainless steel self-locking threaded inserts that resist vibration and loosening. Offering absolute or a lower 1/3rd co-witness with your back-up iron sights, this mount is ideal for shooters who are looking for the lightest mount to accent their Aimpoint® Micro. In order to achieve a lower 1/3rd co-witness, the user includes the spacer with the mount when installing the optic. For an absolute co-witness, simply install optic without the spacer. The Daniel Defense Aimpoint® Micro Mount has been proven to be one of the most durable and light weight mounts available.
