A modular sporting rifle (MSR), another name for the civilian AR-15, is a lightweight, semi-automatic offering parts modularly and incorporating aspects of the M16 and M4 carbine rifles. ArmaLite introduced the concept for the MSR, creating it as a simplified version of the AR-10, and sold it to Colt, which introduced a civilian AR-15 in 1963.
Many hunters prefer the MSR for its two-part receiver and modularity, which allows for various part substitutions, more versatility and improved accuracy, and it has a proven ability to hold up to the elements. At one point, the MSR included a carry handle. Now, most feature a flat top picatinny-style rail for easily mounting accessories.
For nearly 30 years, Warne Scope Mounts has stood above the competition with best-in-class, compact, firearm-specific fitments. We're a company started by shooters crafting our products for today's hunters and sportsmen and prioritize your experience through accuracy and precision-engineered solutions that won't weigh down your build.
For MSR rifles, Warne Scope Mounts provides the following 30mm mount solutions:
Warne Skyline Precision Cantilever Mount
We craft the Skyline Cantilever 30mm mount for the competitor and demanding environments and to complement multiple scope diameters. We start with 7075 T6 aluminum billet and add two integral recoil lugs with four mounting crossbolts and a two-inch cantilever for a greater degree of eye relief.
At a height for AR-type receivers, the Skyline suits your game with more accurate alignments and return-to-zero functionality and is compatible with Picatinny rails.
Warne Rapid Acquisition Multi-Sight Platform
The Rapid Acquisition Multi-Sight Platform (R.A.M.P.) helps the shooter correctly mount their scope onto an AR-15 rifle and adds 45-degree mounting rails to both sides of the optic. This modular 30mm mount solution lets the shooter place their optics farther in front, thanks to a front ring moved ahead one inch, and makes it easier to maintain a proper shooting position. The shooter can also switch between optics for distance shots, target identification and CQB use.
SKEL Cantilever Mount Series
Warne Scope Mounts' SKEL series utilizes a skeleton-style design made with 6061 T6 aluminum to shave down weight without compromising durability, includes our Return-to-Zero performance guarantee, and complements modern 30mm scopes with a forward cantilever. The result allows the shooter to use any scope or optic solution with a flat top gun while maintaining their proper position.
Included within this series is the QD XSKEL; the Super High X-SKEL for shooters needing to use a head's-up position or a gas mask; and the LR-SKEL for long-range precision applications.
Warne Scope Mounts manufacturers all MSR 30mm scope mounts in the U.S. and supports our products' precision craftsmanship with a lifetime warranty.
