A 2.26″ optical center line keeps your head straight while shooting, and aids in running night vision.
FAST is a series of optic mounts and platforms that provide end users with a quicker sight picture than standard height mounts. A 2.26” optical center line height provides faster/easier reticle acquisition while wearing electronic earpro/communications headsets, night vision goggles and gas masks, and allows for more rapid visual processing of the battlefield by promoting a heads-up posture. A heads-up posture also helps users maintain a neutral spine position which is more comfortable while wearing helmets, plate carriers, and other heavy gear. FAST Risers securely elevate block-type red dot optics with a standard lower 1/3 cowitness picatinny mount to a 2.26″ optical center line. The FAST Riser provides an elevated M1913 Picatinny platform for direct attachment of optics such as EOTech EXPS, Leupold LCO, Vortex UH-1, and other “lower 1/3” optics*.
*Technically, the FAST™ Riser will support absolute cowitness optics such as EOTech XPS, Sig Sauer Romeo8H, etc. But, compatibility with the FAST FTC Magnifier Mount will be limited.
The FAST Riser comes standard with a rail-grabber clamp, and is either anodized black or FDE. FDE anodizing can vary.
