MDT ELITE SCOPE RINGS

MDT Elite Scope Rings with Built In Anti-Cant Level

Anti-Cant devices are very important to long range precision shooters, it’s good to see scope ring and scope mount manufacturers incorporate anti-can’t bubble levels into their product offerings. Modular Driven Technologies the folks behind the MDT TAC21 Chassis System are now offering their Elite Scope Rings with Built In Level. MDT makes good stuff so I have every expectation that these rings will be well made and accurate. 

What’s an Anti-Cant Device Do? as the name implies it’s a level designed to help the shooter hold the rifle perfectly level and avoid “canting” or tilting the rifle when taking a shot.

MDT ELITE SCOPE RINGS

MDT Elite Scope Rings offer a solid, lightweight mounting system for your optics. Made from precision-machined aluminum.

MDT ELITE SCOPE RING DETAILS

The MDT Elite Scope Rings offer a solid, lightweight mounting system for your optics. Made from precision-machined aluminum, they are available in 30mm and 34mm diameters. The two diameter options are available in four different heights (measured from top of rail to center of bore).

MDT ELITE SCOPE RING SPECIFICATIONS

  • Designed for ultimate precision and strength
  • 25mm (0.984”) of lateral contact with scope tube
  • 30mm (1.181”) of lateral contact with mounting rail
  • The main body is machined on an automated seven-axis, high-end CNC machine tool
  • Extra wide profile provides extremely stable mounting
  • The bottom rail interface is machined at the same time as the scope clamp interface, guaranteeing all rings are square and parallel
  • CMM checked to 1.5 millionths of an inch precision
  • Machined from Billet 7075-T651 Aluminum – 1/3 the weight of steel with similar strength
  • Extra thick clamp system will never bend, fatigue, or become loose with use
  • Built-in bubble level on medium, high, and extra-high rings (No bubble level on low rings)
  • Stepped base-to-cap interface allows the fasteners on one side to be tightened before making final scope alignment adjustments
  • Six oversized #8-32 Grade 8 fasteners used for clamping the scope
  • Sleek curves blend well into most scopes

MDT Precision Scope Rings are designed and manufactured to STANAG 4694 specification, also known as “NATO spec”. This means the scope ring sits tight to the top of the scope base rail, with pressure being applied to the underside of the angled rail surfaces to maintain a solid interface (as shown below). This design also allows mounting on out-of-spec rails:

By contrast, US MIL-STD-1913 spec mounts attach only to the angles sides of the rail, leaving a small gap between the top of the rail and the underside of the mount, and significantly reducing the amount of contact area between the mount and rail:

Testing performed by NATO has shown that the STANAG attachment method increases the robustness of the interface, leading to increased alignment repeatability. MDT Elite Precision Scope rings can be mounted to scope base rails designed to both the STANAG and MIL-STD specifications.

American Defense AD-RECON-S Scope Mount

Rifle Scope Mount – American Defense AD-RECON-S

American Defense AD-RECON-S Scope Mount – As mentioned on the MDT TAC21 page we were on the fence with scope mounts for the project. We really wanted to go with the SPUHR but the cost was beyond our budget and we figured for most others as well.  In the end we chose the American Defense AD-RECON-S Scope Mount for a few simple reasons. The first reason is they have a relationship with our friends at Criterion Barrels. Relationships are important to us. Reason two, we recently purchased a B&T Industries ATLAS PSR BIPOD BT46-LW17 and it included an American Defense ADM 170-S QD base for attaching to a picatinney rail. The ADM QD system utilizes a lever locking system reminiscent of the BOBRO QD mounts though not as refined.We were pleased enough with that mount that we wanted to get our hands on a.n ADM SCOPE MOUNT for evaluation. Lastly the mount has a lot of surface area to hold the scope and is visually appealing and actually has a look that goes well with the MDT TAC21.

A note on the cost of the SPUHR. It’s not really an apples to apples comparison to any other scope mount. The SPUHR is $410 but it includes an integral level and the ability to accept  bolt on accessories for additional sighting options.
