Made-in-the-U.S.A. carbon fiber scope mount for AR rifles solving common problems with weight, holding zero, heat transfer and adjustability.

The Advanced Carbon Fiber Scope Mount brings military, aerospace and Formula 1 race car technology to optical mounts for the shooting sports.

Until now, scope mounting technology has not kept pace with innovations in optics. Modern scopes and optical sights have an increasing amount of electronics, and traditional metal scope mounts transfer heat from the firearm's receiver to those electronics. The Advanced Carbon Fiber Scope Mount protects these electronics from thermal damage by preventing heat transfer.

The design and material significantly reduces weight, yet is stronger and more precise than conventional metal products. The carbon fiber compression molding process produces rings that are perfectly aligned with each other, causing no stress on the scope tube when properly mounted.

Carbon fiber material is always “true” or perfectly straight, it does not bend or take a set. As long as the mount is not broken, it will remain straight and holding zero.

Firearms have become too heavy when loaded with accessories and other components, particular as the technology in many components has not changed for the last 50 years. The light weight of the mount helps to reduce fatigue, extend operational range, and increase accuracy.

Proudly Made in the U.S.A.

ZERO-G integrates true aerospace technology to an archaic product category, increasing handling and performance. The Advanced Carbon Fiber Scope Mount sets a new standard for gun component design, manufacturing, and performance, all proudly done in the U.S.A.

Perfect for competition shooters in Open Division or for hunters who want a sight for quick shots up close, this is a fantastic addition to the scope mount setup. The auxiliary mount is anodized matted black, the carbon mount will just be the natural black of carbon fiber.

Manufacturing Plan

This product is entirely made in the U.S.A. We're partnering with an experience manufacturer of carbon fiber goods to get the molds manufacturing process just right. The entire goal amount requested in this campaign will be applied to the cost of the setup tooling and the actual production of the mounts and their miscellaneous parts and packaging. If we exceed our goal, there is the possibility to invest in tooling that will increase our production capacity (e.g. multi-cavity molds).

Risks & Challenges

We have spent countless hours refining the design of this product. After our first production unit is made, we will spend time testing and evaluating the scope mount to make sure that it meets our design targets. This is an entirely new product that has never been attempted so we may have to adjust the carbon fiber manufacturing process to ensure that we produce a mount that meets or exceeds our expectations.
