ATOM was a concept brought about by a requirement to mount Aimpoint’s excellent line of Micro optics on pistols. The extension of the design allows you to mount nearly any optic to your pistol without the need to mill the slide for each optic. This allows you to either modify your slide or purchase an aftermarket slide (available Q1 2013) and use any of our adapters to mount your optic of choice.
The slide is modified with a large dovetail to contain the adapter. We hold extremely tight tolerances to ensure zero retention and longevity of the system. The adapters are certified 6061-T6 aluminum that is then CNC’d to our stringent requirements. Each adapter is Type 3 Hardcoat anodized and passes a QC Process before shipping.
The system is capable of using BUIS with the rear sight mounted in front of the optic.
The system assures that your weapon will be future optic compatible (within limitations); and as new optics are introduced to the market, we will release new adapter plates.
The current ATOM adapters will fit small frame Glocks (9mm, .40, .357); and we are working on adapters for Large frame Glocks (10mm, .45 –Except G36) and the S&W M&P.
The system has been tested extensively and even the heaviest combination does not affect reliability of the host weapon.
Currently, we have adapter plates for:
|Adapter|| Net Weight Increase
|Aimpoint Micro||2.05 Ounces|
|Trijicon RMR||0.00 Ounces|
|Leupold Deltapoint||(-)0.60 Ounces|
|Insight MRDS||(-)0.35 Ounces|
|DR Optic / Burris FF2||(-)0.30 Ounces|
|Iron Sights||(-)1.0 Ounces|
