Geissele Automatics is best known for their superb triggers, along with various other items that I have fawned over in past reviews. At today’s Media Day at the range, they were also showing off their newly released scope mounts for traditional riflescopes as well as the Aimpoint T1 Micros series of red dots. Along with their new mounts, they brought some fairly bold claims to the table . . .
Chief among William Geissele’s claims were that regardless of torque, their mounts would have zero point of impact shift when removed and replaced on your firearm of choice. Geissele claims that they achieve this in part by starting with a roughly four pound block of 7075-T6 that they then precision machine into the final form before cutting the rings with a jeweler’s saw.
According to Geissele, several of these mounts have been in the hands of some government organizations for the last few months for field testing. Said agencies are reporting back that the maximum POI shift they’ve recorded is .05 milradians at 100 yards. Geissele tells me that one of the biggest advantages to their CNC driven manufacturing process is that they can precisely match the location of the mount relative to the scope and the receiver for individual applications. Geissele himself was quick to point out how centered this particular Leupold was within the mount. I’ve asked for one, and Mr. Geissele promises me they’ll get me on the list. Look for my report soon.
