Joining the fray in what has to be one of the most hotly debated and argued subjects in the current firearms market is the new Unity Tactical FAST Optic Riser Mount. This new CNC machined piece of 7000 series anodized aluminum clamps onto your existing Picatinny rail and elevates your optic to a 2.25″ optical center line giving the user a more comfortable sight picture when using heavy tactical gear such as helmets, comm headsets, and gas masks.

Introducing the Unity Tactical FAST Optic Riser Mount
FAST™ is a series of optic mounts and platforms that provide end users with a quicker sight picture than standard height mounts. A 2.26” optical centerline height provides faster/easier reticle acquisition while wearing electronic earpro/communications headsets, night vision goggles and gas masks and allows for more rapid visual processing of the battlefield by promoting a heads-up posture. A heads-up posture also helps users maintain a neutral spine position which is more comfortable while wearing helmets, plate carriers, and other heavy gear.
The FAST™ Optic Riser securely elevates direct-to-rail red dot optics with a standard lower 1/3 co-witness picatinny mount to a 2.26″ optical center line. FAST™ Optic Riser provides an elevated M1913 Picatinny platform for direct attachment of optics such as EOTech EXPS®, Vortex UH-1® and other lower 1/3 co-witness optics.
The FAST™ Optic Riser comes standard with a rail-grabber clamp.
The FAST™ Optic Riser is built from 7075-T6 Aluminum and Type III Hardcoat Anodized coating in Black or FDE*
The Unity Tactical FAST Optic Riser costs $99 regardless of the anodized finish color selected and is currently available directly from the Unity Tactical website. However, at the time of writing, a high order volume has both options sold out. If you’d like to receive notifications on one or both color options that become available you can visit the product page here and join the Unity Tactical waiting list.
