AD-Recon-M Medium Height Scope Mount

The AD-RECON-M mount is made for putting high power glass onto a flattop style AR-15. Designed to be used in conjunction with a Laser Sighting System to bring the Objective Housing high enough to clear the laser, or for shooters requiring a higher cheek weld for heads up shooting. This is the mid-height mount that we offer, the centerline height with 30mm rings is 1.64" and 1.7" with 34mm rings. The cantilever throws the scope out front with 2″ offset, allowing you to get the right eye relief. It is precision machined from 6061 T6 aluminum and finished in hard coat T3 Mil-Spec anodize. It features the Patented QD Auto Lock™ Lever system to accommodate both in spec and out of spec rail systems.

Best Mounts in the Industry

I have two of these mounts. I use one on a AR-15 Recce build I use for Coyote hunting and the other is on a HK-91 clone. Both of them have been beat from here till Sunday in the back of trucks bouncing around and out in the field. Either of them have never loosened or shifted zero. Can take em off and put them back on with minimal re-zero adjustment if you even have to re-zero at all.

Excellent Height

The AD Recon M is almost the perfect height. Every manufacturer out there offers mounts in 1.50-1.57” heights. This, of course, keeps the shooter close to the bore and helps keep parallax at a minimum when shooting for distance. The new hotness is 1.93”. This height is for heads up close quarter. This mount is almost the perfect 1/3 co witness height of 1.70”. This mount is the only one I have found that almost bridges the gap at 1.63” height. I have enjoyed it immensely. The height is good enough for moderate distance while shooting prone and works quite well for CQB.
