Integral Mounting Systems
The Leupold Integral Mounting Systems (IMS) family quickly and easily eliminates the two most common issues faced when mounting standard riflescopes to AR-style rifles; scope height and eye relief. From the Mark 1™ to the Mark 4®, each aluminum IMS cantilever design mounts directly to the firearm’s Mil-Spec 1913/Picatinny to raise the scope and push it forward, eliminating the need for risers or specialized optics with shortened eye relief. All Leupold IMS products are tested to endure the rigors of the field and are covered by the Leupold Full Lifetime Guarantee.
MARK 1 - Mark 1 Integral rail slides slides into place and the living hinge easily clamps to the rifle wioth two Torx T-15 screws , providing an affordable and easy-to-use alternative to risers which do not push the scopes forward.
MARK 2 - Mark 2 Integral 1" Rings, 30mm Rings, and Integral Rail attach directly to the Mil Spec/Pictinny rails using 1/2" keeper nuts providing an affordable and easy-to-use mounting solution which eliminates the need for seperate scope rings or risers.
