The Warne Rapid Acquisition Multi-Sight Platform or R.A.M.P., is a cantilever style scope mounting platform that allows proper scope installation on the popular AR-15 rifle. By design, the AR platform was intended for fixed iron sights and did not offer an acceptable mounting surface for optics. As the weapon system evolved from the military designate M16A1 to the M16A3 and M4, Picatinny mounting systems became standard equipment. However, the rail system found on the A3 and the M4 weapons still did not allow a variable power optic to be mounted far enough forward with conventional scope mounts. The Warne R.A.M.P modular mounting system positions the front ring forward of the upper receiver by 1¾. This allows the optics to be mounted farther forward enabling the shooter to have proper head orientation whether upright or prone without sacrificing or compromising due to improper positioning.
The Warne R.A.M.P also offers unique 45° mounting rails on both sides of the optic. As you know, variable power optics are great for distance but not CQB scenarios. Additionally, CQB sights are great for close quarters and entry scenarios but not for distance shots or target ID. So, which one do you choose? Why not have both? The R.A.M.P provides exactly that.
The primary sight can be as small as a 1-4 or as large as an 8.5-25 or a larger variable power optic. With a mini red dot on one or both sides of the ocular, a shooter can transition from scope to dot or dot to scope in less than a second by rotating the weapon 45 degrees left or right. While the technique is not new, the position of the red dot is. By placing the sight under the ocular of the scope, we have provided a wider field of view through the mini red dot which makes acquiring the dot in the sight faster than you can imagine. And once again, you won’t have to sacrifice your shooting position when transitioning from sight to sight.
For years, 3 gun and tactical shooters have utilized offset sighting systems, along with a magnified optic to seamlessly transition from close to long range shooting by quickly twisting the rifle. Warne recognized the advantage these offset sights provided, and were the first to incorporate 45 degree offset rails in a one piece scope mount. Since its introduction in 2010, The Rapid Acquisition Multi-sight Platform or RAMP Mount has been a hit with some of the top names in the 3 Gun Nation Pro Series, as well as law enforcement agencies across theglobe.

The RAMP Mount is constructed from 6061 T6 series aircraft aluminum. This provides a solid, yet lightweight platform, while still maintaining a high degree of precision. Inside of the ring area on the mount, we utilize steel thread inserts so there are no steel screws fastening to aluminum threads. Each ring cap uses four 8-40 T-15 Torx screws to secure the scope in place. The RAMP also uses two milspec steel cross bolts that allow for 65 inch pounds of torque to be applied when clamping to a picatinny rail. Finish options include anodized red, blue, black, zombie green or Cerakote dark earth and mil spec OD green.
The RAMP Mount is offered in 1″, 30mm and 34mm scope tube sizes, and feature the ideal scope height for a flattop MSR. The RAMP Mount places the centerline of the scope tube around 1.43″ above the flattop. This provides the shooter a good cheek weld, and also allowing clearance for scopes using objective lenses up to 56mm. The 45 degree side rails can be used with a number of accessories. When the RAMP is used by itself, a small red dot can be mounted for lightning quick transitions from long range to close range. When paired with our A645 adapter on the hand guard rail, a shooter can mount flip up or fixed sights as a close range or backup sighting option. Traditionally, the flattop AR-15 offered the use of iron sights only when the scope was removed. With the RAMP Mount, the sights are always available when needed, and the scope can remain in place.
Since the RAMP mount has offset rails on both sides, the side that is not being used can either be removed for a more streamline look, or it can be used for a light, laser, or any other rail mounted accessory that fits. If a secondary sighting system will not be used on the rifle, the dominant side rail can be used for a light or laser. The RAMP Mount is one of the most versatile MSR mounts on the market, and paired with the A645, there is nothing that can match that versatility. Looking forward, the RAMP will continue it’s dominance as the preferred mount of top level shooters in professional 3 gun competition. Whether competing on the 3 gun course, a duty rifle, or your defensive carbine, you can depend on the RAMP Mount to deliver the highest level of performance Warne is famous for.
