Late last week, Strike Industries (SI) introduced their new 45-degree offset mount called the Ambush. Offset red dots with a low powered variable optic (LPVO) are becoming the preferred setup for tactical and competition shooters within the community. This allows the shooter to go from long to close engagements without adjusting the magnification of your primary optic. The new Ambush from Strike Industries offers that 45-degree offset for your optic mount while being completely modular. The new Mount allows you mount a wide variety of red dots to Ambush.

The modularity of the baseplate that attaches to the mount is what allows the SI Ambush it’s enhanced modularity. The baseplate is dual sided with an Aimpoint Micro footprint on one side and a multi-optic mount footprint on the other. The new multi-optic footprint was developed in house by Strike to provide users greater utility out od their mounting solution. The multi-optic baseplate accommodates the most popular red dot footprints in the industry such as: Trijicon RMR, C-More, Leupold DeltaPoint Pro, Docter/Noblex and Shield. This system gives users the flexibility to mount all mainstream optic footprints on the market with one plate.

Below, is the product description from Strike Industries on the new Ambush 45-degree offset mount.

Product Description

The Strike Ambush 45-Degree Optic Mount gives you a modular dual mounting plate design which covers just about all mainstream red dots on the market. When you want to run a dual optic setup and have a close distance Mini/Micro Red Dot Sight (MRDS) with a Low Power Variable Optic (LPVO) scope, this 45-degree optic mount is a low-profile and high-strength accessory without forcing you to pick only one red dot you have to pair it up with. The 45-degree angle should get you out of the way of most LPVO scopes along with two mounting positions to pick from on the SI Multi-Optic Mount side. Easily place a MRDS alongside a LPVO with the low-profile SI-Ambush Picatinny rail mount that either sits flush with the top of the Pic rail or slightly below making it easier to sit under a scope or scope mount. The Strike Ambush 45 comes with a dual footprint mounting plate which has the SI Multi-Optic Mount on one side and the Aimpoint® Micro Standard footprint for T-1/T-2 compatible red dots on the other side making this a new innovative modular option for a diverse market. The SUS630 hardened stainless steel Picatinny rail mount is ambidextrous for either side. The 6061-T6 aluminum mounting plate can be flipped to select which MRDS but also oriented to work with the right or left side of the Pic rail. Fitment for one or fitment for almost all MRDS’ on the market, the Strike Ambush 45-Degree Optic Mount gives you a simple, compact and modular just about all-in-one solution.
