This Mount is designed specifically to fit the new Aimpoint Acro recently released. Aimpoint has come out with a unique mounting system involving a dovetail.
We've created two separate versions of this mount, a low profile mount for your average shooter. And a slightly higher profile mount specifically to be able to work with our FX3 3X Optic Flipper! Both are priced the same, however we wanted to accommodate anyone who decided they wanted to use our flipper with the new Acro. The size difference between the two mounts is roughly 100 thousandths of an inch.
This system is very rugged, made from 6061-T6 aluminum, and machined to fit the sight angle as well as the receiver angle. These angles are very important although most of the time over looked. They provide a much better contact point so it stays tight and true. The receiver is a casting and needs a 1 deg. wall taper to release form the mold, if you don’t machine this into the mount you’re not going to get a proper fit.
