Machined from 6061 aluminum billet, the Wilson Combat Omni H Tactical, Cantilever, AR Platform Scope Mount 30mm features three integral recoil lugs along with three hardened-steel mounting crossbolts to offset the recoil and abuse of the largest MSR cartridges when paired with the robust optics commonly preferred by shooters. Weighing a mere 4.9 ounces, this one-piece mount boasts a generous cantilever design that provides optimal eye relief when using 30 mm optics with large eye boxes. The class III, type 2, satin-black anodized finish is as robust as it is eye-pleasing. MSRP: $134.95;

Whether kept in your range bag or your workbench, the Leupold Mounting Tool provides a convenient means of retaining five Allen drivers (1/2 inch, 1/16 inch, 3/32 inch, 1/8 inch and 9/64 inch) while remaining compact for easy storage. There is also added versatility in the form of a 1/4-inch flat-head blade and two (T-15 and T-25) Torx bits. Such a handy gadget provides a hassle-free means of making windage and elevation adjustments in the field and/or installing rings and mount bases at your bench. MSRP: $24.99;

Compatible with handguns, rifles and shotguns, the Bushnell Laser Bore Sighter .22-.50 Caliber is designed to quickly get you on paper, saving you time and money. Its adapter kit includes multiple arbors that fit .22- to .50-caliber firearms. The laser emitter, powered by three LR44/SR44 batteries, can be used indoors or outdoors and sports a sleek, tapered body that interfaces easily with most flash hiders and muzzle devices. MSRP: $39.99;

Available in various configurations and sizes for variety of riflescopes, the flip-up design of Butler Creek Element Scope Caps forms an airtight seal to safeguard your optic’s eyepiece and objective lens from the elements. When ready for use, they pop open with a mere push of button/tab. MSRP: $9.95 (eyepiece); $29.95 (objective)

The Trijicon MRO Anti-Reflection Device fits on the optic’s objective lens and uses honeycomb cell technology in a field-practical way to hide telltale reflections off the lens while reducing glare to the shooter without affecting the view. Adjust-able tension ensures a secure fit, while the durable, hard-polymer construction can withstand hard use. Its matte-black finish blends well with the MRO. MSRP: $71;
