Video Blog – Review: Aero Precisions Lightweight Scope Mounts


In this video, we review the Aero Precision Lightweight Scope Mounts. These scope mounts are an integral body scope base and the scope rings are extremely lightweight and affordable.

As we like to do at, our review will include the “Good, Bad, and Ugly” of this product.


Take a look at the video for the full review.


We Recommend with a caveat: For tactical scopes (short body) these mounts work, but longer scopes with a 3 screw base may cause to extend too far to the rear.

The Good

  • All aluminum
  • Integrated ring and base
  • Colors
  • Lightweight
  • Don’t twist the scope during tightening too much

The Bad

  • Very low torque (concerned screws may back out)
  • Easy to strip screws

The Ugly

  • The 3 screw base forces pushing base as far forward and limits usage to tactical, short-bodied scopes
