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.
Blaser has revolutionized the way riflescopes are mounted on the rifles by introducing a unique mounting system. Most Blaser rifles (R8, R93, B95/B97, D99, K95, S2, BBF95/97 and many others) have four notches on the barrel, the dimensions of which are the same on every Blaser rifle that uses this mounting system. Blaser is one of the first rifle manufacturing companies that introduced the barrel-mounting system.
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 parts that are in contact with the rifle (clamping parts) are 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).
MAKuick mounts made for Blaser rifles have some advantages over Blaser's Saddle mount. The base is designed so that the user can choose where the rings are mounted. Because there are more holes for the rings on the base, the user can move the riflescope back and forth. Basically, the riflescope can be mounted closer to the shooter's eye, which is great. The mount's mechanism is designed so that it can be mounted on any barrel and there won't be any play. The user can mount a Picatinny rail on the classic MAKuick base made for a Blaser rifle – the result is a detachable steel Picatinny rail that can be quickly removed and put back on the Blaser rifle.
The BH height of the base is 12 mm. In the MAKuick series, there are mounts for all types of rails that 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.
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 put into the four notches on the Blaser rifle's barrel 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.

In this category, it is listed whether the mount is attached to the optical device with rings or via rail. In the red dot sight adapters section, it is written which red dot sight the adapter is made for.
If the mount is attached to the optical device with rings, the ring diameter is listed:
If the mount is attached to the optical device with rail, the rail type is listed:
In the red dot sight adapters section, it is written which red dot sight the adapter is for:

BH stands for Bauhöhe (ger.) which means overall height. It is measured from the mounting surface of the rifle to the lower surface of the riflescope's tube.
KR stands for Kröpfung (ger.) which means extension. This is the distance between the mounting surface and the front ring, measured horizontally. If the ring is exactly above the mounting surface, the KR is 0 mm.
Often, the elevation adjustment that the riflescope offers is not adequate to compensate for the bullet drop when shooting at long range. When the riflescope runs of out of elevation, a mount with an inclination is needed. 20 MOA is the most common inclination. With it, the user gains 58.2 cm / 100 m of additional elevation range when shooting at the range of 100 m. This is approx. 5.8 Mrad of elevation.
