By William from USA on 2010-04-18 22:45:47Things I liked:Nice sturdy mount for Diana Air Rifles. Barrel angle adjustment is excellent. Put the mount on my RWS model 36 and the fit was perfect. Mount stays put and doesn't move. The mount does make up for the barrel angle on my model 36
Things I would have changed:I wish they could make the mount a little shorter and not quite so tall.
What others should know:I ordered the mount with a set of accushot low profile weaver rings. They were advertised as low but when they showed up they were Medium. If you have a 44mm obj scope or less you need low rings because the base is to high. I have a RWS 450 40mm objective scope and when mounted on the base and rings the center of the objective is almost two inches high. When sighting in at 16 or 20 yards this makes for a real step trajectory over the line of sight. You need the lowest mounts possible that your scope can handle and still have clearance over the power plant housing to get the line of sight and pellet trajectory with in reason. For some people this makes no difference, but to me personally, I have been hunting for 34 yrs with Rifle and air gun and to me having a flatter trajectory leaves less guess work in the field.

By Robert from USA on 2008-10-16 11:52:11Things I liked:Well, I would've liked it if it worked.
Things I would have changed:This base is so high that with the first rings I tried it with I could hardly get a sight picture without sticking my neck out
What others should know:This base overcompensated for the droop in my 34 and I ended up having to shim the front rings which is the opposite to what you do with other bases that don't compensate for the droop. I bought it so I wouldn't have to shim, so this aspect was disappointing. I also had a severe windage problem that I couldn't figure out. In fairness to this base, it could have been the rings I used but I ran out of windage adjustment and couldn't get it zeroed. I kept running out of left windage adjustment. I finally gave up and used the Leapers Accushot one piece base and rings with the stop pin of the base hung over the front of the dovetail and a hard plastic shim under the scope at the rear ring. This works fine, and the only reason I was switching to the new "anti-droop" base is I thought it was a more elegant solution. It's not. At least it wasn't for me. The base makes the scope sit so high it looks and feels awkward. Use the Accushot one piece base and rings, hang the pin over the front of the dovetail, and, if you need to, shim the rear ring. It makes a solid mount that looks right and works great.
