FAST™ is a series of optic mounts and platforms that provide end users with a quicker sight picture than standard height mounts. A 2.26” optical centerline height provides faster/easier reticle acquisition while wearing electronic earpro/communications headsets, night vision goggles and gas masks and allows for more rapid visual processing of the battlefield by promoting a heads-up posture. A heads-up posture also helps users maintain a neutral spine position which is more comfortable while wearing helmets, plate carriers, and other heavy gear.
FAST™ FTC Magnifier Mounts feature the first ever Flip-To-Center (FTC) mechanism (patent-pending), providing stowage completely within the footprint of the weapon’s receiver while not occluding the host optic’s sight picture at all. This provides the most optic capability with the lowest profile during all modes of operation. The revolutionary FTC function completely solves the problem posed by legacy flip-to-side magnifier mounts (when disengaged, the magnifier hangs off the side of the gun, creating a major snag hazard). FAST™ FTC Magnifier Mounts completely eliminate this danger and utilize a force-to-overcome mechanism for rapid transition. Designed for Aimpoint® Magnifiers (3XMag-1, 3X-C) and some other 30mm magnifiers.
FAST™ FTC Magnifier Mounts come complete with American Defense Manufacturing® patented QD Auto-Lock™ Lever.
