The Spuhr ISMS (Ideal Scope Mounting System) is one of my favorite scope mounts, so I was really thrilled to see that Spuhr is finally releasing a version with a quick detach capability. The ISMS is machined from one-piece solid billet, in 7075 T651 Aluminum. In addition to the quick detach levers, the new model has all of the same features found on the standard ISMS mount, including . . .
- 10-degree leveling wedge
- 4 numbered and indexed mounting torx heads
- Built in level
- 8 accessory interface attachment points
One cool feature of the new mount is that the portion that interfaces with the corners of the picatinny rail is scalloped out in order to increase the purchase on the rail, which helps compensate for any rails that may be slightly out of spec.
The quick detach version of the ISMS will retail for $495.
