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.
The FAST™ FTC Magnifier Mount is built from 7075-T6 Aluminum and Type III Hardcoat Anodized Black or FDE*.
*Due to the chemical process that takes place during Type III
Hardcoat, the final finish can vary slightly from part to part (even
parts done in the same batch). Therefore, your FDE FAST Mount may vary
from one to the next, and may vary slightly from the photos shown
