Finding the best Aimpoint Micro mount that is both super lightweight and durable in today’s market is overwhelming because there are so many different options.
Some people want it to be super lightweight, others want a nice & snug Quick-Detach mechanism, and others want the optimal co-witness height.
Over the years I really enjoy using the Scalarworks LEAP mount for its 7075 T6 Aluminum construction and lightweight skeleton design.
Whatever you need, I have listed 4 best Aimpoint Micro Mounts that fit your need; they’re super lightweight, durable and under $150.
Best Aimpoint Micro Mounts (Works With T1, T2, H1 & H2)
There are many great Aimpoint mounts from LaRue, American Defense, Scalarworks and Geissele Automatics.
Their prices are about the same, and they’re super durable and are widely used by pro shooters.
Scalarworks Aimpoint LEAP Mount
After you have ditched your big and bulky optic for the Aimpoint Micro in order to save weight, out of all other mounts, I highly recommend the Scalarworks QD Aimpoint Micro Optic Mount for only weighing 1.65oz.
The lightest mount on the market without compromising an ounce of strength. Built with 7075-T6 CNC aluminum and that’s an average of 171% stronger than 6061-T6.
The mount holds zero under any condition with the compact ClickDrive QD system.
The low profile recessed thumbwheel also allows the user to remove the sight off in seconds.
Scalarworks also offers 3 different co-witness option including 1/3 height.
They’re fit T1/T2 and H1/H2. In addition, they also fit:
- Aimpoint CompM5
- Vortex Crossfire & Sparc II
- Sig Sauer ROMEO4 & ROMEO5
- Primary Arms Micro
- Holosun Micro
Larue Tactical Aimpoint Micro Mount LT660
The best part about LaRue Tactical mounts is its sexy QD Speed Lever. It’s the best on the market that provides a great secure mount and fast removal without loss of zero.
The lever has a nice feel to it, and you can also adjust lock tension with the wrench provided in the package.
All LT mounts are precision-machined out of high strength bar-stock aluminum with a durable non-reflective surface finish.
The LT660 is a 1/3 co-witness mount, LT660HK is a lower 1/3 co-witness mount, and LT661 is a low mount best for shotguns and other high height over bore guns.
(Note): not all red dot sight mounts are made the same. The lower 1/3 co-witness sits slightly lower than 1/3 co-witness by about 8.3mm.
American Defense Aimpoint Micro QD Mount
This mount has a different approach to solve the shooter’s co-witness height problems. Instead of offering separate standalone mount, this optic mount uses AD-B2 modular base and your choice of risers.
It works with Aimpoint H1/H2 and T1/T2 optic as well as the following:
- Vortex Sparc & Crossfire
- Primary Arms
Machined out of 6061-T1 aluminum with Mil-Spec anodized black finish.
The Patented QD AutoLock lever system has superior clamping force and surface to ensure maximum rail contact and doesn’t need any proprietary tools for adjustment.
