U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Originally developed as a joint effort between Lamborghini and Callaway Golf Company, the forged carbon fiber process can produce complex shapes one-third the weight of titanium, yet stronger. Partnering with manufacturing company McVick, Black Collar Arms is excited to bring the world of forged carbon fiber components to a firearm near you.

Forged Carbon Fiber One-Piece Scope Mount

Available first are Forged Carbon Fiber One-Piece Scope Mounts in 30mm and 34mm ring sizes. Despite weighing in at a scant 5.2 ounces, these forged carbon fiber scope mounts are as stiff and rigid as if they were machined from steel (three times stiffer than aluminum!) with just 1/6th the thermal expansion of aluminum.

These are the most rigid scope mounts on the market and maintain flawless zero in any condition. As if the gorgeous carbon fiber aesthetic wasn’t enough!

Forged Carbon Fiber One-Piece Scope Mounts are the first in an upcoming line of forged carbon fiber components currently being designed by Black Collar to be manufactured by McVick exclusively for Black Collar. Expect further optic mounting solutions plus other accessories and components, including AR-15 parts.

Quality is extremely high, but current production capacity is low. Mount availability will be rather limited with small batches arriving at Black Collar weekly while we gradually invest in increasing capacity.

Despite the limited and exclusive nature of the Forged Carbon Fiber One-Piece Scope Mounts and their physical advantages over aluminum mounts, not to mention their drop-dead gorgeous looks, MSRP is in-line with other premium scope mounts.

How do you keep the screws from pulling the threads out of the carbon fiber?

Knute, I wondered about that too. Either heli-coils or J-B Weld is what I came up with, which is to say it tears up the fibers regardless and you’re left with fixing the mess.

The only possibility I can come up with is a threaded shank with a recessed head, pressed into the carbon fiber from below. But that doesn’t exactly make it a one piece body.

I considered the Ikea model of building, but gave it up for the same reason, it wouldn’t be one piece. I’m not spending the cash to find out how they did it, what I’ve got works just fine.
