The MAD mount body is CNC manufactured from billet 6061 T6 aluminum alloy and Type III hard coat anodized in a non-reflective black mil spec finish to provide combat durability. The stem and aperture disc are made from solid billet 4140 steel and have hardened wear points for long service life. All steel components are black manganese phosphated per mil-spec. The MAD overhangs the rear of the receiver by 0.200-inch. This provides a lip so that the sight can be easily deployed even with a gloved hand. The sight stem locks in the up position with a positive mechanical detent system. Once placed in the up position, the sight cannot be folded down without depressing the spring assisted detent release button located on the left side of the sight base. This totally eliminates the possibility of accidentally lowering the sight.
The MAD is the lowest profile BUIS with a locking detent and weighs in just over two ounces. It is now available with an option for Trijicon Tritium night sight inserts. The MAD is used by elite armed forces and law enforcement teams word wide. Don?t forget it is compatible with the AR10.
