2022 Editors’ Choice Award Winning
Trijicon Q-LOC Optic Mounts
One of the easiest ways to ensure disappointment with your new ultra-high-end glass is to mount it in a set of budget rings. Failure will occur once the rough handling starts, and in the end, your optic solution’s durability and reliability will start with the mount you choose. Optic manufacturers like Trijicon have substantially upped their game in the factory-offered mounting solutions. Not to blow sunshine up Trijicon’s skirt, but the company has a proven history of offering above-average mounting solutions for their optics. They’ve again knocked it out of the park with the release of their new Q-LOC one-piece QD optic mounts $350).
Available as a cantilever (AR-type weapons) and non-cantilever (bolt-action rifles) and constructed of 6061-T6 aluminum, the Q-LOC offers an easy-to-use one-handed toolless mounting system and will return to zero if removed and then reinstalled in the same rail space location. The spring-loaded design allows for constant retention and will maintain zero even if the knobs are not tightened. Several different heights are available, ranging from 1.06 to 1.59, accommodating 30mm and 34mm main tube diameters. These are some of the nicest one-piece QD mounts we’ve ever tested and well deserving of their 2022 On Target Editors’ Choice Award.
