6 Best Canted Offset Mounts
The 35 degree brings the sight up closer to slimmer profile, and the 45 degree provides additional clearance around magnified optic scope turrets.
On some guns, tweaking between the 35 degree and the 45 degree can fix the offset bore alignment issue so to minimize vertical offset. However, it doesn't always work on some guns.
It also comes with a wide selection of supported with interchangeable optic plates.
The base cant plates can be purchased separately or as a combination, providing an upgrade path in the future as users acquire new red dot optic.
TREX Offset Mount is built by TREX ARMS. It's a fairly new company that provides tons of tactical training videos online and they're one of our favorites to watch.
What's special about this mount other than the branding - Their product is not much different from other brands, but it's mostly optimized for NVG height when wearing the goggle.
It does tuck in closer inward to minimize the lateral profile of the rifle setup and it offers different mounting plates for Trijicon RMR, SRO, Holosun 507C and Deltapoint Pro at a standard 1.57" base height.
If not using a NVG, the shooter has to get down really low to acquire the sight.
The Trijicon AC32066 45 degree offset mount is a great product from trijicon. It's on sale for a great price online. What this Trijicon brand offset picatinny rail will do is to have a low profile 45 degree mount that works with a magnified optic.
Mount any optic with a picatinny rail, if you don't it's okay, and we can go with the other ones recommended below for MLOK, KeyMod and others.
If you haven't seen this one yet, then you gonna love it.
The Valhalla Tactical RUKH is the world's first adjustable pitch and height offset angled mount, and people who have tried it love it for:
- Better adjustable cheek weld height
- Faster transition speed
- Pivot to your liking
- Align bore axis and POI (Point of Impact)
- Height and scope of your rifle.
- Works for cross eye dominant shooters if used at the right angle
The user has the option to tuck an offset optic all the way in closer to the scope, pivot it out or reverse direction if needed to optimize the setup.
What's the most impressive about the pivoting mount is the ability to adjust reasonable point-of-impact to align the bore of the rifle. That means for any high bore axis rifles like the MCX, SCAR, X95 Tavor and HK416, and you can use this mount to eliminate offset aim that's typical associated with offset mounts on the market today.
The mount currently offers 3 different base mounts with 2 different heights (Absolute Co-witness & 1.93") for
- Trijicon RMR/SRO & Holosun 407C/507C
- Leupold DeltaPoint Pro
- Aimpoint Micro T1
The unit is built with Grade 5 Titanium, the strongest material one step ahead of 7075 T6 aluminum in the industry today, and honestly it's one of the best piece of gear that hit the market in 2020.
LaRue Tactical RMR QD Mount (Base Mount Only)
Why we like this one - The LaRue's LT726 QD lever mount has been my personal favorite for the longest time. If you have a frequent routine of taking off your offset optic, and it's the best to use a QD mount without needing any tools.
Products from LaRue are tier 1 quaility firearm gears. They're used currently in the military and it's also very popular in the civilan tactical communities.
If you have a Trijicon RMR, this mount is a great product to get.
The Midwest Industries is well know for making great firearm parts and accessories. Made with 6061 T6 aluminum, it's super light, which allows this mount to be weight friendly on bigger guns.
I have used this on my AR on the top receiver and also use it as a offset mount for weapon mount light on a picatinny handguard.

What's A Good Offset Mount
Optic Height and Bore Alignment
Depend on what firearm platform you have, your offset optic may not give you the best bore alignment or cheek weld height.
Having a slight offset between the canted sight and the bore will cause poor accuracy and zero.
We highly recommend trying out the Valhalla Tactical RUKH adjustable pitch offset mount recommended above.
