The design goal of our extended eye relief scope mount was to take advantage of the generous eye relief found in the new generation of 1-4x, 1-6x and 1-8x rifle scopes ideally suited to practical rifle applications, whether field or competition. Used at 1x, the scope itself will effectively disappear from view to allow function similar to a true 1x dot sight. This technique, though, requires the scope to be mounted farther forward than usual, which is difficult to do with standard mounts without bridging the receiver and hand guard rail. This, of course, can be cumbersome and lead to possible POI shift due to flex in the hand guard.
This modified version of our classic scope mount solves these issues by allowing for proper head position and cheek weld while still mounting entirely to the upper receiver for greater stability and accuracy. What’s more, this forward mounting capability is ideal for shooters preferring a more abbreviated stock configuration for a faster mount and more versatility in compromised positions.
The extended eye relief JP Flat-Top Scope Mount attaches to any standard Picatinny rail and features an integrated recoil lug for stability. Ideal for AR applications, its intermediate height can accommodate up to a 56mm objective while the mount rings will fit any 34mm scope tube. The mounting straps also come with pre-drilled holes for piggyback mounting of the JPoint Microelectronic reflex sight using the JPA-GUARD protective wings.
