How this new model came to be...
It was inspired by the Brookfield Precision Tool special production run of lightweight steel mounts for the Special Forces in the 1980s. We had been loaned an original Brookfield lightweight mount several weeks before the 101st Airborne called expressing their interest in a lighter steel mount. We had the interest and now they had an urgent need so we rose to the challenge to expedite it, since their unit was about to deploy in a few weeks. We didn’t want to let our brave troops down.
We did our initial design overnight and had the first prototypes for heat-treat and testing in 2 days. We were cautious in where and how much material to remove as to not to avoid compromiseing the overall strength of the new lightweight mount. After many design revisions and prototypes and a few 18-hour work days, we had the right balance;mix to begin on the production beganversion. Mike Sadlak and his dedicated precision tool-makers worked tirelessly through many nights to deliver the finished mounts to the 101st Airborne on time. It was a proud day for the employees at Sadlak Industries LLC. We thank the 101st and our military for the opportunity to serve
Using Iron Sights with a
Sadlak Scope Mount??
Similar to the original Brookfield Precision Tool mount, the Sadlak mount also has a U-shaped channel thru the precision machined Picatinny rail that provides an opening under the rings to use the iron sights with the scope and rings attached.
