XSKEL1BU Gen 2, Extended Skeletonized 1 inch MSR Mount, Blue
- MSR Ideal Height.
- Over 2 inches of forward Cantilever.
- Steel Threaded Inserts for Cap Screws.
Stylish 1 piece Cantilever MSR mount Designed to have the "Ideal Height" for Modern Sporting Rifles, the XSKEL places the optic at the proper height and forward position on AR platforms. Skeletonized design along with steel hardware and threaded inserts provides a lightweight and rigid mounting platform. This Gen II Edition has all the features you need.The XSKEL Mount offers a lightweight scope mounting solution for your MSR style firearm with the same durable, return to zero reputation that you've come to expect from Warne. This mount is CNC precision machined from 6061 aluminum and we've been able to reduce the weight by utilizing a skeletonized body and ring caps. The XSKEL provides 2 inches of forward cantilever, making it the perfect scope mount for LPVOs and a 1 piece side clamp design for additional strength. The extra cantilever provides proper eye relief when using scopes with large eye boxes and will give extra space behind the mount for accessories like the Warne A645 45-degree side mount adapter.
Warne Engineered the XSKEL to be light in areas where it could be. Still, thick and heavy duty in the places where it needs to be, making it a durable and lightweight scope mount for low-power variable optics or variable scopes with a 24-56mm objective.
