When Luke Yost bought an ACOG he decided he wanted to be able to move his new optic between a couple of rifles. Luke was busy studying material science at MIT and didn’t have the time to re-zero his optic so he did what any enterprising MIT student would do. He started his own company and invented a better mouse trap. Behold the Mod Zero M-Zero scope mount that lets rifles share scopes by retaining the scope’s zero within the Picatinny rail.
Mod Zero is funding the M-Zero mount through an IndieGoGo campaign. Here’s their pitch:
Have you spent an entire range trip and boxes of ammo rezeroing scopes? Or do you spend your hard earned gun-money on buying a handful of scopes and red-dots dedicated to just one rifle? At Mod Zero we’ve reinvented the zeroing process to make scopes modular between rifles. Rather than zeroing one scope to one rifle, our M-Zero Scope Mount lets you setup a common zero between your rifles. Zero your rifle to your scopes, Not your scope to your rifle.
Ballistic Dial: We also have a customizable ballistic dial built into the elevation dial. Basic application is range adjustment independent of attached scope. Other applications include ammunition variations, barrel/caliber swapping, and suppressor use. The ballistic dial is still in development. Range adjustment prototyping has been successful.
Our patent pending windage and elevation adjustable M-Zero Scope Mount stores the unique zero of a rifle in its picatinny rail. By setting a common zero between rifles and optics, shooters can swap components freely as their needs change.
Start with zeroing both optics to Rifle 1. Then attach the M-Zero to rifle 2. Next mount either optic to Rifle 2’s M-Zero. Finally, zero the M-Zero scope mount. Now, both optic can be attached to either rifle without the need for re-zeroing.
Early bird supporters can pick one up for $225.
