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™ Riser securely elevates block-type red dot optics with a
standard lower 1/3 cowitness picatinny mount to a 2.26″ optical center
line. FAST™ Riser provides an elevated M1913 Picatinny platform for
direct attachment of optics such as EOTech EXPS®, Leupold LCO®, Vortex
UH-1®, and other “lower 1/3” optics*.
*Technically, the FAST™ Riser will support “absolute cowitness”
optics such as EOTech XPS®, Sig Sauer Romeo8H®, etc. But, compatibility
with the FAST™ FTC Magnifier Mount will be limited.
The FAST™ Riser comes standard with a rail-grabber clamp. A Flip-Up
Offset Backup Rear Iron Sight module can be purchased separately. This
feature will provide fast-transition BUIS capability to the FAST™
Riser. The Offset Rear Iron Sight Module is 100% compatible with
existing Offset Front Sights such as those available from MAGPUL, Dueck
Defense, Midwest Industries, and Knights Armament Company.
The FAST™ Riser 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
