Bravo Company Manufacturing, aka BCM, has a whole new spin on Picatinny rail mounts. The new Angled Torque Mounts do away with the traditional cross-bolt and replace it with an angled screw that pulls against the underside of the rail. BCM claims that this new system offers “unprecedented zero retention.”
More Optics @ TFB:
As depicted above, the A/T mount puts all of its mounting force into the rail rather than the mount body. There is plenty of force available, as BCM recommends 65 inch pounds of torque on the fastener. All of that tension is borne by a nitrided steel clam and nut and a 7075T6 aluminum mount body. There are also several recoil lugs machined into the bottom of the mount.
There are currently four A/T mounts available. Two are for the Trijicon MRO, and two are for the Aimpoint Micro/T-2. A 1.93-inch and lower 1/3 co-witness height are available for each of those optics. All models are priced at $119 and they are in stock as of writing.
From the manufacturer:
BCM® A/T™ Optic Mounts
Capability in the face of the unexpected and catastrophic, the BCM A/T Mount is built in anticipation of a “no fail” shot that will save another human life.
PERFORMANCE WITHOUT PEER
Improving on Mil-Spec rail interfaces dating back over 30 years, the BCM A/T mount delivers unprecedented zero retention on a properly mounted red dot optic. Low profile and snag-free, BCM A/T Mounts are built with a minimal number of components – delivering a stronger component with less points of failure, ready to take on dynamic and adverse settings.
Each A/T Mount features multiple integral recoil lugs to mitigate recoil and counter recoil to preserve your zero and ensure “no fail” shots are placed where intended by the trained rifleman.
Each 7075T6 billet mount is hard coat anodized per Mil-A-8625F. Additionally, both the steel alloy clamp and nut are hardened with Nitride coating.
THE ANGLED TORQUE™ LOCK-UP
A/T (Angled Torque) mounts employ angled torque through a patented* clamp which applies triangulating force to create a stronger and more reliable lock up of the mount onto the end user’s rail. To retain the hardware in field conditions, this system uses a serrated locking spring-washer to prevent the loss of torque on the shaft nut.
