FAST is a series of mounts and platforms that provide end-users with a quicker sight picture than standard height mounts. A taller optical centerline (mechanical) height provides faster/easier reticle acquisition while wearing electronic ear pro/communication headsets, night vision goggles, gas masks, and plate carriers that can impede a natural shooting position. It allows for more rapid visual processing of the battlefield by promoting a heads-up posture.
The FAST LPVO Offset Optic Base attaches to either the forward or rearward mounting holes in the FAST LPVO Scope Mount. Together with a FAST LPVO Offset Optic Adapter Plate, it provides a base for attaching any number of mini red dot sights directly to the scope mount. The Offset Optic Base places mini red dot sights at a 35 degree offset from the scope tube for faster transitions. When used with the Optic Adapter Plates, the mini red dot will have a mechanical centerline of 2.05" above the rail.
The FAST LPVO Offset Optic Base is only compatible with the FAST LPVO Scope Mount and requires a FAST Offset Optic Adapter Plate to function.
The FAST LPVO Offset Optic Base is built from 7075-T6 Aluminum and Type III Hardcoat Anodized Black or FDE*.
*NOTE* FDE is used throughout our catalog to reference a spectrum of colors that include tan, brown, bronze, earth, and everything in between. Due to the chemical process that takes place during Type III Hardcoat, the final finish can vary from part to part (even parts done in the same batch). Therefore, your FDE product may vary from other parts from UNITY and other companies, and may vary from the photos shown online.
