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 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.

And for those cold days in the woods or when things heat up at the range the ORYX polymer side panels keep your hand’s comfortable no matter the conditions.

Polymer side panels provide added handling and ergonomics – including a thumb shelf – which lends itself to a variety of hand positioning and shooting techniques.

Weighing in at 3.2 lbs, the ORYX is the perfect platform for a hunting rifle.  The ORYX can accommodate up to a 1.25″ straight taper barrel, which makes the ORYX perfect for a precision rifle build.

The ORYX is currently available for the Remington 700, Howa 1500, and Tikka T3. Releases for the Remington 783, Howa Mini, and Ruger American are slated for early 2019.

Modular Driven Technologies has sent out a few black friday sales emails today. Im mostly interested in the LSS Chassis for $239, I will order on Friday (Payday). I will probably go for a $269 long action version. There is outstanding deals on cosmetic blemished factory seconds. Examples, a left handed TAC 21 is $276!!!. Equally intriguing is the skeleton stocks that are $100-$150 off. I don’t think I can swing a stock and a chassis though. If anyone reading this purchases something that’s a factory second I would like to see some pictures and hear some feedback about what the cosmetic defects are.

BROWNELLS MDT BRN-1 M-LOK CHASSIS

To me this is an unexpected product offering from Brownells, a Brownells branded MDT LSS Chassis. Brownells used to be slow to respond to firearm market trends and in my opinion this bolt action chassis finally shows some forward thinking on Brownells part. For me as i have stated before I really like partnerships between my favorite companies and Modular Driven Technologies and Brownells are two of my favorites. lastly i think the Rams head logo is a cool touch given that’s exactly the types of beasts that might see action from this chassis.

There are currently 18 models to choose from including two for the Ruger American Rifle. Colors are Black or Flat Dark Earth aka FDE
