Arsenal SM-13 Scope Mount

Arsenal, Inc. - Press Release

 DECEMBER 03, 2013


LAS VEGAS, NV – After the successful fulfillment of a military requirement, Arsenal, Inc. is excited to announce the release of the SM-13 to the commercial market. This one-piece side-attaching scope mount for the AK variant rifles was born to meet and exceed the toughest objectives put in front of Arsenal, Inc. The SM-13 was designed and manufactured specifically to surpass the following requirements:

  • To come up with a light-weight, precision, and highly rigid scope mount platform for military application:
    The one-piece CNC precision machined SM-13 is manufactured from aircraft grade aluminum alloy for the minimum weight (only 5.76 ounces) and maximum strength.
  • To have the maximum-length Picatinny railing system for attaching top mounted devices, such as scopes, red dot systems, night visions, and magnifiers:
    The over-7.5-inches-long Picatinny rail that runs along the rifle, from the end of the top cover to the rear sight leaf, allows for attaching multiple devices at the same time or one device for the maximum eye relief.
  • To have the lowest profile that adds the minimum to the bulk of the rifle and allows the use of iron sights while the mount is installed:
    The SM-13 follows the contour of the rifle closely. The absolute low profile and the relief cut along the rail allow the use of the iron sights even when the scope mount is attached to the rifle.
  • To have a quick-release attaching mechanism that provides the maximum stability and consistency:
    The SM-13 utilizes the time-proven steel adjustable locking mechanism that allows instantaneous attachment and release of the scope mount without any compromise to the accuracy and loss of zero. Unlike some other mounts that attach to unstable top covers or gas tubes, the SM-13 attaches to the side scope rail of an AK variant rifle, which provides the most stable attaching platform on the rifle.

The SM-13 is now available through distributors and retailers nationwide.
