On what mount can you install ADE Advanced Optics RD3-020 Raptor? And with which optics can you share the same mount? In this article we look in detail into the Raptor mounting surface.
ADE Advanced Optics RD3-020 Raptor uses the same footprint as Trijicon RMR standard.
That means that you will be able to use the same red dot mount and red dot plate as Trijicon RMR optic uses.
In other words, any red dot mount or plate made to fit RMR footprint will also work for your Raptor sight.
You can see more red dots compatible with Trijicon RMR footprint in this article.
ADE Advanced Optics Raptor pattern
The RMR footprint – which ADE Raptor uses – consists of two sockets in the front corners of the front of the sight and of two screw holes in the center of the sight.
The front socketes are 22,5mm / 0.89 inches far from each other. Position of these two sockets corresponds to position of pins that are on a mounting surface of any mount for this standard.
The screw holes are positioned in the rear part of the optic device. These function for fixation of the sight to the mounts. These two screw holes are 18,8mm / 0.74 inches far from each other.
The distance between the front sockets and rear screw holes is 22,3mm / 0.88 inches.
The screws that are to be used for these screw holes are always included in the package with the sight.
