On what mount can you install Kite Optics K1? And with which optics can you share the same mount? In this article we look in detail into the Kite Optics K1 mounting surface.
Kite Optics K1 uses the same footprint as C-More RTS standard.
That means that you will be able to use the same red dot mount and red dot plate as C-More RTS uses.
In other words, any red dot mount or plate made to fit C-More RTS footprint will also work for your Kite Optics K1.
You can see more red dots compatible with C-More footprint stnadard in this article.
C-More footprint consists of four sockets in the corners of the sight and of two screw holes in the rear of the sight.
The front socketes are 14mm / 0.55 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 14mm / 0.55 inches far from each other, same as the sockets for mounting pins.
The distance between the front sockets and rear screw holes is 17,7mm / 0.70 inches.
The screws that are to be used for these screw holes are always included in the package with the sight.

Other than Kite Optics K1, this footprint is also used for other red dots. You can use the same mounting profile also for following optics:
- C-More RTS 2
- Vortex Razor
- Delta Optical Stryker
- … and other, as per the complete and actualized list here
