Unity Tactical FAST Riser
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 centerline 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 Riser securely elevates block-type red dot optics with a standard lower 1/3 cowitness picatinny mount to a 2.26″ optical center line. 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. A Flip-Up Offset Backup Rear Iron Sight module can be purchased separately. This feature will provide fast-transition BUIS capability to the FAST Riser. The Offset Rear Iron Sight Module is 100% compatible with existing Offset Front Sights such as those available from MAGPUL, Dueck Defense, Midwest Industries, and Knights Armament Company.
The FAST Riser is built from 7075-T6 Aluminum and Type III Hardcoat Anodized Black or FDE*.
*Due to the chemical process that takes place during Type III Hardcoat, the final finish can vary slightly from part to part (even parts done in the same batch). Therefore, your FDE FAST Mount may vary from one to the next, and may vary slightly from the photos shown online.
The is mount is exactly what I’ve been looking for, very high quality and functionality. And the shipping was super quick. Very satisfied.
I got the Unity Fast riser in FDE and it functions great, much more comfortable to use my eotech and is rock solid, I tightened it down to 30in-libs and used blue loctite.
Very please with mount I wish I can with QD attachment but I’m very pleased with the product
This riser does its job well. The mount is sturdy and precise. little to know horizontal adjustment was needed with my Eotech XPS3, however as expected adjustments for the change of height over bore were required. distance within my 36 yards zero requires excellent awareness of your holds, as well as an adjustment to all other previous holds past your zero. The only improvement needed is the consistency of the finish of the FDE. i love the 50 shades of FDE as much as anyone else, but this particular product arrived in a nearly rose gold-tone, which wasn't that exciting. nevertheless, the product itself is 100% worth the squeeze and does its job exactly as intended.
As with anything Unity Tactical, it’s expensive, but it’s bulletproof and great at multiplying force. Being able to maintain a more heads up position when utilizing optics is a must have, as once you begging to duck down, your peripheral abilities are diminished, which in CQB, could mean your life or limb. Ditch the co-witness setups, get your head up, and start being a better reaper bringing tyrants to meet their maker… I mean targets, paper targets, maybe steal, whatever tickles your fancy.
The riser is straight quality and the service from SKD is always top notch!
This thing is incredible. Brings the dot to a higher setting for a better heads-up position. With the EXPS optic, simply use the QD lever to remove optic and use back up sights, or it comes with a mounting solution for an offset rear sight (haven't tried yet). Pretty cool. Would purchase again.
Obviously the unity riser is amazing with my LCO, first order from SKD......the first of many, crazy fast shipping even during the COMMUNIST CHINA ASSHOLE COVID19 cause pandemic!!
