Quick Detach lever lock system
American Defense Manufacturing produces some of the finest quick release scope mounting solutions available. Made from 6061 T6 aluminum and held to high standards, these mounts are of extremely high quality and are immensely capable.
Cantilever Mounting Platform
The AD-RECON scope mount is designed to be used in conjunction with a flat top AR-15. The cantilever style mounting system allows the user to set the scope farther forward to maintain proper eye relief. However due to the cantilever, the mounting point is entirely on the upper receiver only and not the forward hand guard. The receiver is a more advantageous place to mount the scope due to the fact that it is more rigid and does not require you to have a monolithic top rail.
Quick Release Attachment
The stand out feature of the American Defense Recon mount is the quick release locks. As the name implies the quick release locks allow for rapid removal and remounting. This is advantageous in the case that your scope goes down and you need to resort back to iron sights. This can also be beneficial if you should choose to use one scope for multiple rifles and would like to freely switch the scope back and forth. In addition to allowing for rapid mounting and dismounting, the mounting mechanism has additional benefits. The QD Auto Locking lever system is adjustable. This adds the capability of being able to adjust to both in spec and out of spec Picatinny rail systems. Also, for added flexibility, the levers can be configured to lock to the front or the rear, based on user preference or equipment concerns.
