Rings and mounts are an important consideration in mounting your quality optic. Only a handful of brands are chosen by the US Military to mount long range scopes on their sniper rifles. The Nightforce Unimount has X-Treme Duty in its name for good reason. Do not let the lightweight allow mount fool you. Nighforce 30mm mounts have been used with a number of battle-hardened tactical and sniper rifles for more than a decade.
The Unimount 30mm rings are at home on a sniper precision bolt rifle as well as on AR10, SR25 sniper rifle and an M4, AR15 duty carbine. The mounts are offered in low settings for bolt guns without a rail over the barrel, and high settings for larger scopes with rails under the scope. Also offered in 0 MOA and 20 MOA cant for duty and long range applications. The Nightforce mounts were originally made for the NXS and NX8 Nightforce serires of precision riflescopes, but will also be at home with other high-quality 30mm tube scopes. With the relatively large number of 30mm scopes on the market, the 30mm Ultralight mount is a best seller for Nightforce.
Manufactured from titanium and 7075-T6 aluminum, Nightforce CNCs their Ultralite Unimounts in multiple heights and with an a selection of 0 MOA or 20 MOA tapers, depending upon the height. The aluminum body keeps things light but robust when combined with the titanium jaws and cross bolts. If you're looking for a precision mount that is half the weight of comparable steel options, the Unimount is perfect for your Picatinny rail equipped weapon system. With proper tools, these can even be utilized to swap the optic to multiple hosts and return to zero when remounted. Using precise tolerances, Nightforce has designed these mounts to protect optics from stress and bending as the screws are torqued.
For added optionality, the Nightforce X-Treme Duty mounts can swap upper rings with a bubble level ring and the RAP top rail accessory platform.
