If you spend time running lever-action rifles, you’ve probably gone through the process of mounting a red dot sight to your gun (or guns). This has varying degrees of difficulty on a lever-action but is rarely simple. Thanks to Hoptics USA, there’s now a direct mounting system available that’s compatible with Henry and Marlin levers. It’s called the Direct Optics Mounting system, and it promises to make levers and red dot sights easy to pair together for your ideal shooting platform.
Hoptic USA is launching its DOM system mounts with two versions, one for red dots with a Holosun K footprint, and one for Trijicon RMR footprint dots. The DOM-K is the Holosun K compatible model and is described by the company as the DOM-K Cowitness Holosun K Mount with Ghost Ring Sight.
This mount is made to be sleek and compact, so it doesn’t add unnecessary bulk or protrusions, and is available for all rifle caliber Henry and Marlin levers. It’s made from 6061 T6 aluminum and Type III hard anodized for durability and resistance to wear. All mounting hardware is included and the mount is made in the USA.
The DOM is a compact mounting system compatible with the Trijicon RMR. Its footprint makes it compatible with all RMR footprint red dots such as the Holosun 507c, 407c, 508T, and Swampfox Liberty. The mount ships with a fully adjustable Williams rear ghost ring sight and everything needed to mount it, including Badger Ordnance Torx head screws. It has an overall weight of 1.3 ounces including the ghost ring. The DOM is machined from 6061 T6 aluminum, Type III hard anodized, and made in the USA.
