Strike Industries have announced a new 45-degree offset reflex sight mount called Ambush. As you know, red dot sights mounted at an angle in relation to the main magnified optic are used for quick close-range engagements in a matter of tilting the gun sideways. The new Strike Industries Ambush 45-Degree Optic Mount has a modular design allowing to attach a wide variety of red dot sights, angled to either the left or right side of the weapon. Let’s take a closer look.

The Strike Industries Ambush mount consists of a SUS630 hardened stainless steel base and a 6061-T6 aluminum mounting plate. The base is compatible with standard 1913 Picatinny rails and has a low profile design allowing to place it below a scope or scope mount. The mounting plate is double-sided with an Aimpoint Micro footprint on one side and an SI Multi-Optic Mount interface on the other side. The latter allows attaching red dot sights of the most popular footprints: Trijicon RMR, C-More, Leupold DeltaPoint Pro, Docter/Noblex and Shield.

The SI Ambush mount comes with two different size Torx tools, a thread locking compound and 18 (7 different types) screws for attaching various reflex sights. On the Strike Industries website, it is thoroughly described which screws must be used with any particular red dot sight. The SI Ambush mount weighs 1.8 oz (51 grams) and has the following dimensions: length – 2.05″ (52.1 mm), width – 1.05″ (26.6 mm), height – 2.47″ (62.75 mm).

    For the tiny bit of D-bag larping tactical operator in all of us, another place to hang the extra crap one might need in a dark alley...At a convenient 45 degree angle, mind you...

    Oh I like how thin it is. It'll really slip under cantilever mounts much easier than the ones like Arisaka.
