In our multi-task-oriented society—where accessoritis-inflicted black-rifle owners are king—why limit your Picatinny rail to just one optic? Warne Scope Mount's Rapid Acquisition Multi-sight Platform (RAMP) mount enables use of multiple optics with a single platform. A combination of magnesium-phosphate-coated steel and matte-black hard-anodized 6000-series aircraft-grade aluminum, the cantilever-style RAMP is designed to successfully interface with any Picatinny rail-equipped upper receiver—allowing proper scope installation on the ever-popular AR-platform rifle.

Originally the AR platform was intended for fixed iron sights and did not provide acceptable mounting surface for optics. Despite the evolution of the M16 family of rifles, the rail system present on the M16A3 and M4 variants still did not enable a variable-power optic to be mounted far enough forward with conventional scope mounts.

Part of its modular design, the RAMP positions the front ring forward of the upper receiver by 1.75 inches, moving optics farther forward. The result is shooters' heads assume a more natural position—one that can be comfortably maintained for a longer period of time whether upright or prone without sacrificing your position due to improper positioning of an optic.

Heavy-duty construction, including a 1/2-inch nut clamping system and heavy-duty 8-40 Torx screws create a rock-solid base for return-to-zero capability—even under severe recoil. Best of all, each end of the mount contains dual 45-degree rails for mounting additional lasers, lights and reflex-style sights. The RAMP is also compatible with both 1-inch and 30-millimeter-diameter scopes.

No matter if your targets are at bad-breath distance or long range, the Warne RAMP Mount provides the versatility to hit the mark on the fly.
