The Warne R.A.M.P mount is a 1 piece scope mount for AR-15 style rifles, or any rifle that has a picatinny rail and needs a forward mounted optic. R.A.M.P stands for Rapid Acquisition Multi-Sight Platform. It gets the multi-sight part because besides having built in rings, it also has 2 45degree angled mounts. These mounts allow you to install a small red dot sight on one of the canted rails. One could mount Iron sights on these also, but would then need the optional mount for the front sight to attach on. The RAMP mount comes in three sizes for most needs: 1inch, 30mm, and 34mm. I have the 1" version, but they are all essentially the same.
The 45 degree mounts are really what sets this mount ahead of its competition. With the ability to mount something small on either the left or right side of the scope, it will appeal to both left and right hand shooters. If you decide not to use one side or the other, or neither, the angled mounts are removable with 2 socket head screws on each. Because of the added mounts, and space to attach the mounts, it is not the lightest mount out on the market.
Another nice feature on the RAMP mount is the 1/2" hex screws on the mounting base. They are to be torqued to no more than 65in/lbs. Also a torx style allen wrench is supplied to tighten down the top of the scope rings. There are 2 T-15 torx screws per side and should be tightened in an x pattern.
I really like the RAMP mount. It puts the scope at the correct height and the proper eye relief. With the option of adding a small red dot if one desires. The only negative I can see with the mount is the weight, but it is a very sturdy mount. If you are in the market for this style mount, you cant go wrong with the Warne RAMP.

Alex on Amazon 5/5 stars. Best AR mount anywhere.
Bought one of these for my RRA LAR 15 to use with a Leupold Mark AR on top and a Leupold Deltapoint on the side. Got it, opened it, and could not have been more impressed with the build of this mount! Rock solid craftsmanship. Placed it on my AR and it holds tight and sits perfectly. Take it off...no problem. Put it back on....exact return to scope zero. Just bought another one for my RRA LAR-8! Get one, or two, you will not ever want any other mount!
Jkrispies on Brownells 5/5 stars. Great mount for a 45 secondary mount.
A little heavy (even with the side mounts removed) if you're not going to use the 45 degree option, otherwise typical Warne quality, which is the best I've found out there. Only warning I'd give is to do some research before buying this-- will your Mini-Red Dod Sight clear the bell of your primary scope? Ironically, I think the perfect use of this scope with a 45 degree mount would be on a monolithic receiver (think SCAR) and the mount backwards. Height is perfect. If you don't foresee yourself ever using the side mounts, I would recommend going with the Warne SKEL mount, which is the same mount as this minus the extra attachments, thus reducing weight significantly.
