The generous guys at Scalarworks were kind enough to send me one of their 1/3 Low Drag Mounts (LDM)  for Aimpoint Micro’s to review. I have been following the LDM development for a while and was very interested in the mount. It’s lightweight, skeleton construction seamed perfect for a lightweight fast carbine.

I have to say, after opening the packaging and getting my hands on the LDM, I was extremely happy.  This thing is light. It felt like it weighed less than the small cardboard box it came in.
I immediately mounted it up on a Colt AR6720 and was very pleased. I really like the scalloped thumbwheel construction,  used to mount the LDM. Also, the LDM just looks badass.

Construction and mounting the LDM  is rock solid, lightweight and low profile.  I have several of the popular / well built / reliable micro mounts, and on initial inspection of the Scalarworks LDM, I can say it does not disappoint.

The Aimpoint Micro seems to be floating in the air over the receiver with this mount. I am eagerly waiting getting on the range with the LDM.
Some very minor modifications have been made to the LDM mounts, due to user feedback and I think the LDM is looking like a rock solid piece of gear.
