Scalarworks LDM 30mm Aimpoint Hack

If you have one of the Aimpoints (or other red dot sights) that require a 30mm ring mount – like the excellent Aimpoint PRO – you are probably bummed that there is no Scalarworks LDM mount for you. Well, I have good news…

The LDM/CompM4 can be used in conjunction with the ring from the Aimpoint QRP2 mount to create a lightweight mount for your 30mm Aimpoint. This combination is only 0.0236″ than the normal height that Scalarworks builds into their mounts which is basically imperceptible (and still within the height ranges of other mounts).

If you have a complete QRP2 mount that came with your Aimpoint, or can find a cheap used one (which is easy considering how many people replace them), and an LDM/CompM4… You have everything you need (including the hardware) to mount a 30mm red dot sight.

Field of View Isn’t a Thing with Red Dot Sights

If you are using your red dot sight (RDS) correctly, you shouldn’t really have to worry about field of view (FOV). The idea that FOV is a concern with red dot sights likely comes from people using them incorrectly or a misunderstanding of how they work.

With both eyes open and target focus, you should barely be aware of the body of the RDS. You look past the RDS and only see the red dot superimposed on your target which is where your focus should be (in most cases). If you find yourself being sucked into the tube, you may be focusing on the dot.

Sights like Aimpoints are often referred to as “1X” optics which is not technically true. They are not magnifying the view through the optic – think window, not magnifying glass. Red dot sights are usually non-magnified optics and not subject to the geometry that creates the conical field of view found in magnified optics.

Aimpoint recently posted a video featuring John Lovell of Telluric Group that offers a brief explanation of how to employ your dot sight so that FOV is not an issue:

The Aimpoint 3X-C Magnifier is Now Available

The new Aimpoint 3X-C Magnifier, which debuted at SHOT Show 2016, is now available from authorized Aimpoint dealers.

Designed for the civilian shooter at a budget friendly price point, the 3X-C can be used in conjunction with all Aimpoint sights for long-range aiming or observation. Additionally, a variable (-2 to +2) dioptric setting allows this magnifier to be adapted to the individual shooter’s eye.

The 3X-C can also be used as a handheld 3X monocular. Aimpoint magnifiers utilize the red dot in Aimpoint sights as the aiming reticle, eliminating the need for re-zeroing when shifting between non-magnified and magnified aiming. The 3X-C is encased in a shock absorbing protective rubber cover that also creates an ideal ergonomic grip. Internal optical adjustments make aligning the magnifier and sight quick and easy.

Scalarworks Aimpoint Comp M4 Mount Preview

Scalarworks gave us a preview of their upcoming Low Drag Mount for the Aimpoint CompM4 and CompM4S. The mount features the radically skeletonized design and extremely low profile thumb wheel that is typical of the LDM mounts. It will be available soon in both an absolute and lower 1/3 co-witness version.
