Another Take on Dual Optics Mounts – The Offset Juggermount

538e3d88e33aa

Enamored with the previously covered “Ultimate Jig”, I was browsing through Juggernaut Tactical’s website and came across a mount that seems to not get much attention from the company despite an innovative take on the concept, the Offset Juggermount.

Almost all dual-optics solutions typically have the optics mounted to the main receiver, which is solid solution. Instead realizing that the optic itself is typically just as solid, Juggernaut Tactical mounted the red dot to the optic main tube. This is highly convenient, especially for the various quick disconnect mounts coming to the fore which will keep both optics zero’d to one another.

The Juggermount is compatible with a veritable plethora of red dot systems including: “Burris FastFire, J-Point, Tasco Optima, Firepoint, Docter, Fowler/Pride, and Insight Technology MRDS”. From there, it also has the option for a bubble level to verify cant for those using the main optic. Nifty.

To me, the most interesting piece is the potential option to use the non-dominant eye and immediately switch from the main optic to the red-dot without having to shift the main cheek weld. This is highly useful for both CQB or high magnification settings that can often be difficult to get on-target quickly after changing positions.

The Juggernaut is available directly from Juggernaut tactical. Various offset mounts are available for 1″, 30mm, and the new 34mm tubes. Base pricing is $105 with a $5 option for the bubble level.

    My immediate reaction is “why?”, but I actually kind of like it. Interesting to see if it is more/less useable than a 45 degree offset.

      Anything that saves you from having to tilt the entire weapon system to the left, changing your entire grip, is a plus.

        Unless you wanna look extra tacticool when in CQ, All gangsta style and what not..

  • Would the point of impact be 1″ or so to the left of the POI of the scope, or would the zero be designed to converge at a specific range?

    • Roy G Bunting

      Depends on how you zero it. Considering the purpose, I’d probably put a 100 yard zero on it, or for 5.56mm I’d probably use the 25 yard battle sight method.

      • Gary Kirk

        Exactly, but I think I’d rather co-align (if that’s a word) the two. Just so if one went down, could still possibly use the other to some degree. Know elevation would be a problem still, but better to deal with a single adjustment than having to quick math two..

    Hopefully this is better received than the D-Evo.

  • gunsandrockets

    Logical.

    Great just what all the yahoos need another way to nail more doodads onto a rifle. They build five pound mountain rifles so you can add seven pounds of BS to the outside of it. Anyone that I have ever met with multiple redundant sighting systems on a gun when shooting could not hit the ground with their hat.

    Dual optics: because engaging in a firefight where you simultaneously take out targets at 500 yards and two feet happens to you all the time…

        That made me laugh out loud. 😀

  • Ευστάθιος Παλαιολόγος

    Another benefit if such solutions is that you can put high powered optics on target fast using the red dot rather than scanning the area through the scope

    Hmmm, no thanks. I don’t like the idea of putting mass on the scope. The scope has to start it and stop it during recoil and other movement, making the scope’s life harder. Does it really matter? Probably not. I’m not saying there’ll ever be a real world consequence.

  • billyoblivion

    Be hella hard to shoot non-dominant side.

  • Green Hell

    Why not just put it sideways, is there a difference?

  • Goody

    If I’m walking behind dinner the last thing I want is this bit of lego poking me in the chest.

    Tactical add-on salesmen’s days are numbered, anyway, their impending doom will be electronically actuated power rings, or those neat fluid lenses.

  • the_duck

    I like my JP Enterprises offset mount, which is designed to be a 45 degree on bore axis option. Like it more than the Daniel Defense offset it replaced.

  • The problem I see is that the height over bore from the scope is what? 2 inches? Then you add a red dot over to the side, adding more distance?

    No thanks. I would rather stick with an easy 45 degree offset that is closer but that is just me.

    How many of us are Marines in Fallujah?

    If you have put a magnified optic on your rifle for home defense, you either live in the palace at Versailles with its mile-long hallways or you’re preparing for the wrong scenario. Most homes statistically speaking have no more than twenty yards of straight shot inside them – if you need a magnifying optic for that, you’ve got no business holding a rifle because it’s obvious you’re blind as a bat. 😉
