Buyer Beware: Counterfeit KDG Sidelok Mounts

If you are in the market for a Sidelok Mount from Kinetic Development Group (KDG), be careful. Counterfeits are starting to show up. KDG produced an image that shows some ways you might be able to spot one of these fakes.

In addition to the tells that are shown in the image, you can also see that the counterfeit does not include several machining steps like chamfers and tapers that are important to the structure and function of the mount. These things are easy to spot when you have the real and fake mounts side by side but more difficult to spot when you don’t have the benefit of a comparison picture.

The best way to insulate yourself from this kind of fraud is to only purchase your mounts from authorized dealers. If you are buying a used mount, insist on some pictures of the problem areas outlined in the image above.

KDG is happy to announce our partnership with AXTS Weapon Systems of Salem Oregon! AXTS has made a name for itself with it’s popular Raptor charging handle and MI-T556 carbine, as well as the Talon safety for the AR-15. The new Talon Ambidextrous 45/90 Safety Selector is one of the most easy to install, user friendly safeties on the market, and a natural choice for the FNH SCAR series of rifle. AXTS will be selling the SCAR edition of their Talon exclusively through KDG, effective immediately! The Talon comes as user installable kit, allowing for full ambidextrous engagement of the selector. The patent pending design also allows for easy configuring of either a 45° short throw, or 90° throw as found on stock AR-15, M4 and M16 rifles. Now, users can match their safeties across various common platforms in both form and function all without removing the safety from the lower! The Talon features a screw-less design, so you will never have to worry about levers coming loose or falling off. This is a 2 lever kit with additional lever sizes available from AXTS. The SCAR TALON is made in America from 7075 aluminum, in MIL-SPEC hard black anodized (type III) finish. KDG will additionally have a FDE colored option available within a few weeks. Gain the benefit of additional leverage, increased engagement surface for larger hands, and ease of use when wearing gloves with the SCAR Talon safety selector!  MSRP is $79.95, and is available NOW on KDGs website and at authorized dealers.

KDG Releases SIDELOK – Aimpoint Micro Mount

Kinetic Development Group (KDG) has releases their SIDELOCK – Aimpoint Micro Mount. It is available from their website and authorized dealers.


From KDG:

KDG expands their lineup of SIDELOK optic mounts with a new model for the popular Aimpoint micro red dot optics. Designed to fit Aimpoint T1, T2, H1 and H2 models, the mount will also fit other popular miniature red dots that share the same footprint. The Sidelok micro mount allows the user to achieve a lower 1/3 co-witness with flip up iron sights when mounted on the AR-15 or M4 carbine.  This lightweight, 2.7 ounce Aluminum mount uses KDG’s Sidelok (pat. Pending) cam lock system to attach to picatinny rails instantly. With no tools needed to attach the mount, the user simply rocks their setup onto the chosen mounting space, and down onto the rail. Once pressed down, the Micro Mount self locks, and the optic can be zeroed in the usual fashion. Removal is equally fast, and can be accomplished with one hand even while wearing gloves. The front-located release button has a smaller, recessed secondary lock, which must be deliberately pressed in to facilitate removal; similar to the way a Glock trigger safety works. Do to its’ design, it is virtually impossible to accidentally engage the release, and the cam lock system ensures a secure grasp on various sized (and some out of spec) picatinny rails. This equates to a fast, easy means of removing and attaching optics while retaining an absolute return to zero. The smooth sides of the mount prevent snagging and “Busted Knuckle Syndrome”, while the unique skeletonized riser reduces the overall weight of the mount.

KDG plans to continue releasing more Sidelok models for other common optics, including one for the recently released Trijicon MRO. The new Aimpoint Micro Mount is currently available on their website and at their authorized dealers and distributors. MSRP for the mount is $139.00. For more information visit the links below.

The MLOK Universal Offset Mount uses their Kinect technology to act as a quick-detach interface between the mount and MLOK compatible slots. To mount the offset rail, you simply press the mount into place which automatically triggers the Kinect mechanism and locks the mount in place. Removing the mount is as easy as depressing the buttons found at each end of the mount.
