The Daniel Defense 1 O’clock Offset Rail is optimized for mounting miniature red dot optics in the 1 O’clock (right-hand) or 11 O’clock (left-hand) positions for quick, non-magnified, transitions when employing magnified primary optics on AR-type rifles with MIL-STD-1913 rails. The geometry allows for zero cheek-weld shift during the transition. This facilitates very fast transitions from magnified to non-magnified optics, and back. The 1 O’clock Offset Rail can also be used to mount a variety of lights or other accessories that mount to a MIL-STD-1913 rail. By flipping the part upside-down, one can mount a light in a good position for use with a vertical foregrip.

- Noticeable jiggle/play when completely tightened.I just submitted a ticket 5-10-18 and am waiting to hear back from support regarding this product. I purchased one through Amazon.com for use on my DDM4V5 with Daniel Defense Picatinny Rails. I have it mounted on the ejector port side, at the first slot forward of the port. Tightened completely, there is noticeable jiggle/play. I'm not sure if this is normal (I wouldn't think it was). I am hoping that it isn't and either DD replaces it, or Amazon notes the review and replaces it as well.
- Great product for sites and optics, not great for mounting lights.Like everything DD makes, this is a top quality product. Fit and finish are perfect, and Rock & Lock is slick and simple innovation. Unfortunately this is not the appropriate adapter for my application.
I am trying to offset mount an Inforce weapon light so it is not directly on top of the rifle. On the top rail the light obstructs six o'clock in my ACOG. In my opinion this is not suitable for mounting lights because it puts the light too far off the rail and makes it awkward to manipulate the light.
I would love to find a 1913 bracket on an offset mount more similar to the scout light mount. That way the light would be in the crotch between the top picatinny and the keymod side rail.
As far as far as offset optic or iron site mounts go, though, this is probably the best rail on the market.
