Things I liked: Very solid mount.
Things I would have changed: Scope rings need to be slightly taller in relation to the base.
What others should know: This base will not work if your scope adjusting turret goes around the scope ring on the bottom. In other words unless your scope is completely smooth, on the bottom of the turret area, the turret will hit on top of the base which will not allow you to lock down the scope in the rings. Rings are too close to the base. I tried to mount a Nikon Prostaff EFR 3x9x40 scope on this mount. If you look at a picture of this scope you'll see that the adjustment turret is very slim and flat on the bottom. It still would not work. If that is not a problem for you this base and rings seem to be very well made and sturdy.
Things I liked: Solid, one-piece mount.
Things I would have changed: My gun needed more droop compensation than this mount offered.
What others should know: I purchased this mount for two reasons: (1) I needed droop compensation. Even with two soda-can shims on the rear scope ring of my old setup, I could not get my scope to zero. (2) I wanted a one-piece mount vs. separate scope rings: I found it difficult to get my scope aligned with the bore using my old scope rings. This BKL mount solved the alignment problem. It clamps the dovetail for a full four inches. By tightening each of the six(!) clamping screws, it is solidly anchored in perfect line with the dovetail I still had to add two soda-can shims under the scope at the rear ring on the BKL mount to get my scope zeroed in. Apparently, my gun has some serious barrel droop. At more than 5oz in weight, this thing is heavy for a scope mount; much heavier than a pair of rings. In my case, my gun was already over eleven pounds, so a few more ounces was not a big issue; just something to be aware of. This mount is solid! Once clamped in place, it feels like part of the gun.
Things I liked: Completely solved my scope alignment problem. Excellent quality, good quality hardware.
Things I would have changed: Anti slip material inside the ring will be nice. I used 3M double sided tape in this case. Also please consider making these for the picatiny / weaver rails.
What others should know: If you want to shoot straight, shoot accurately, why not do it right at the first time by getting the BKL.
