SKD Aimpoint QRP2 Riser (PRO/COMP M4)
Introducing the NEW SKD AIMPOINT QRP2 RISER for the Aimpoint PRO and Comp M4!
The Aimpoint PRO and Comp M4 optics ship with a perfectly usable mounting system that often gets tossed in the random parts bin to upgrade to a taller aftermarket mount. With new mounts often costing in excess of $150, accessorizing your Aimpoint optic can strain your wallet. With the NEW SKD AIMPOINT QRP2 RISER, you can upgrade your existing factory QRP2 mount to a modern height option for merely $40! Or when purchasing an Aimpoint PRO from us, you can add an SKD AIMPOINT QRP2 RISER for only $20 more!
Four riser heights are offered for the most popular applications.
- The 1.73" Riser will place the center of the optic at 1.73", which is the classic Bottom 1/3 Co-Witness position, allowing for fixed iron sights to be constantly visible for immediate use when needed, while keeping the iron sight picture at the bottom 1/3 of your Field of View so you have an uncluttered red dot view.
- The 1.93" Riser will offer you a largely unimpeded FOV when using over your PEQ-15 and matches the height of the LaRue 1.93" Mounts. Even for those not using the IR aiming devices, the 1.93" Riser will allow for an upright head position for quickly finding your dot and reducing neck fatigue, while not being too high to shoot from the prone.
- The 2.04" Riser will allow you to keep the exact same optic mounting height for shooters using a 2.04" Geissele mount for their Low Power Variable Optics, and also allows for in-line mounting of a CNVD that is secured to 1/2" Riser.
- The 2.26" Riser provides an affordable entry-level solution to use your Aimpoint with the new Unity FAST Flip to Center Magnifier hotness, while staying within a budget. We view this Riser on a PRO or Comp M4 as the gateway mount to eventually using an Aimpoint Micro Optic coupled with the Unity FAST Mount.
The SKD Aimpoint QRP2 Riser is also Bidirectional. Many shooters dislike the left-side orientation of the large torque knob on the QRP2 and Comp M4 mounts because it can sometimes impede AR15/M4 bolt-catch manipulation and can get hung on gear for most right-handed shooters. With the SKD Aimpoint QRP2 Riser, you can now mount the QRP2 Riser base in the opposite direction by design, with the knob on the right-side of the receiver, keeping the left side of the receiver clear and open for bolt-catch manipulations. When the torque knob is mounted above or near the ejection port, it will not get in the way of your ejection pattern, but it will collect fouling easily so we recommend masking the knob with painters tape for extended training sessions.
I got the smallest spacer (1.73) and I’m using it with the Sig Romeo7 optic and the cross bolt mount that it comes with, which is a really good lower cost alternative to the CompM4s. Great optic and this spacer puts it at a height that could be called a lower 1/3 height, but is on the high side of that and works great.
Great riser from an awesome company. Quality, fitment, and finish are all top notch.
Wish I would have known this thing existed years ago. It does it’s job. Comes with everything you’ll need to install and if you are a smooth brain like you’ll find a video on YouTube that guides you through all 2 steps to install this thing
The 2.04" riser fit the Aimpoint CompM4s using a Qrp2 mount perfectly. This riser was purchased to make it easier to acquire a site picture while using night vision. Having this riser installed makes it easier to get a proper site picture during the daytime as well; when not using night vision. The bottom line is that I would recommend using this riser with the Aimpoint even if you are not running a night vision device. The only thing I would do differently would be to purchase the 2.26" riser instead of the 2.04 inch riser, which was not available at the time I made my purchase.
Matched with the Midwest Industries QD mount and purchased the Aimpoint Comp M4s with no mount. Perfect setup and no extra parts laying around in bins.
This riser elevates the PRO at a perfect height for fast target acquisition. No need to “cheek in”deeply. Thank you SKD
This riser is a great way to bring your Aimpoint up to your desired co-witness height without spending hundreds on a new mounting system. This riser even enables you to switch the locking knob from left side to right so the knob does not snag on gear. Highly recommended product!
I got the 1/3 co-witness spacer for a PRO. I have a 1-6x in a 1.93" tall, it's awesome and it isn't as tall as you think. I considered going that route with a spacer for the PRO but with the RDS I want the ability to use the BUIS and still have the optic essentially unobstructed. If something works perfectly, it just works, you won't notice it because it's just there performing its task. I'll leave it at that regarding the spacer. I began looking for a 1/3 co-witness PRO mount/ring and found some from outstanding manufacturers but with a minimum cost if $120+/- In steps SKD Tactical. I've known of SKD for sometime but I found this spacer by sheer chance, it took several Googles but boom here it is, for the PRO or comp M4 I don't think you'll be disappointed.
Using this riser I was able to get my dot to the lower 1/3 co-witness I was used to with my other red dots. Super easy to do and a quality product. My order arrived quickly as well.
