Leupold has added to its mounting systems with the introduction of its new Mark 4 IMS mounts for AR-15s (Modern Sporting Rifles), and expanded rifle fits in its QRW, PRW, Dual Dovetail, Quick Release and Standard bases.
"Rings and bases are often overlooked, but are critical to getting optimal accuracy out of your rifle and riflescope," said Tim Lesser, vice president of product development for Leupold & Stevens, Inc. "We develop and test our mounting systems to eliminate guesswork for the hunter and shooter. There's no decision needed, just choose Leupold and you're good to go."
The redesigned Mark 4 Integral Mounting System (IMS) is a one-piece mount that is optimized for AR-15 builds. The lap-free scope rings feature four screws, with threaded steel inserts. Long-range shooters can choose the Mark 4 IMS with 20 MOA built in, while hunters and casual shooters can choose a flat base.
For fans of the round-receiver variants of the Savage 10/110 and Weatherby Mark V platforms, Leupold now offers QRW two-piece bases. These bases allow for the use of either QRW or PRW rings. For the new Ruger American Rifle, Leupold is offering Standard bases specifically designed for the short-action models. Dual Dovetail mounts are also now available.
