MAK is a German company, specialized in mounting solutions for optics. Their offer also includes riflescopes and red dot sights. MAK's products, made with topmost precision, are known for their high quality. To appease every need when it comes to mounting solutions, MAK has many series of mounts in their offer.
A 12mm dove-tail is usually found on European break-barrel rifles (single-barrel, combo, express, triple barrel) such as Bettinsoli Combo, Steyr Duett, Antonio Zoli Express, Brno Combo, Haenel Jaeger 9, Heym 22 S, Valmet 412, Sabatti Combo, etc. There is a recoil notch at the rear side of the dove-tail. The mounts for dove-tail are a little higher in general because the dove-tail notches are almost aligned with the barrel.
MAKuick mounts are robust and reliable. They offer a 100 % repeatability, meaning that the user can remove them and put them back onto the rifle without the need to re-zero. MAKuick mounts are designed so that they can withstand the recoil of even the most powerful calibers out there. They are lightweight because both the base and the rings are made from aluminum. The whole system that is in contact with the rifle (the clamping assembly) is made from steel. MAKuick is a versatile series of mounts – it allows mounting of all sorts of rings, all sorts of mounting rails (LM, ZM/VM, SR, Convex), different adapters that allow mounting of other devices such as ATN X-Sight; Pulsar Digisight, Apex, Trail; Fortuna devices etc. MAKuick mounts made for the mounting of riflescopes with a rail underneath are made of one part. Because of this, they are more robust, durable and reliable. For digital and thermal optical devices, the buyer has to pick a MAKuick base with four holes on which rings are usually put. Instead of the rings, the user mounts an adapter on top that works as a connector between the thermal optics and the MAKuick base. MAK makes one-piece MAKuick bases for the following rifles: CZ 527, CZ 550, Merkel KR 1, Merkel RX Helix – also fits on all Picatinny rails, Sauer 303, Sako 75, Sako 85 S, Sako 85 M, Tikka T3 and Blaser rifles. They also make a MAKuick base for break barrel rifles with a 12 mm dovetail and for break barrel rifles with a 14.5 mm dovetail (usually found on Czech break barrel rifles).
The BH height of the base is 12 mm. In the MAKuick series, bases for all types of rails are currently manufactured: LM, ZM/VM, SR, and Convex. Mounting a riflescope with a rail underneath is much more simple than mounting a riflescope with rings – once the riflescope is mounted on the rifle, it will automatically be horizontally aligned with the rifle's barrel, no additional adjustments are required. The mount is made out of one part.
First, the user has to make sure that the rifle is fixed (it is advised that the rifle is put into a rifle holder). Once the mount is slid into the dove-tail grooves and fixed by rotating the levers for 180°, the lock screws have to be unscrewed. The user then adjusts the clamping force of the adjustment screws with a hex key so that they are tightened but not too tightened. The lock screws have to be re-tightened to complete the mounting procedure. The recommended tightening torque is 4–5 Nm.
The product has a warranty period of 10 years.
