Things I liked: I like having the rings fixed to the base as it reduces movement error......and the slant angle was just right for the Octane Elite, ... using barracuda 21.14 gr. pellets. It put the scope elevation into the mid range adjustment at 25 yards,on cross hair. I also liked the spreader holes .....as all such items should have a means of removal. Some do not have this.
Things I would have changed: It would be nice if there was some windage adjustment......as I had to file the inside groove on both sides to achieve barrel alignment .
What others should know: When shooting at distance....barrel alignment is critical with the scope,.....and so if the 11mm groove on the rifle is not perfect....one needs to compensate for this with windage adjustment. By distance ..I am speaking of 100 yards. IE...If you hit a dot at 25 yards.....you should in theory hit the same dot at 100 yards with the barrel aligned and under perfect conditions and shooter stance.
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.

How many minutes of droop correction do I get with .007 droop correction in the bkl one pc scope mount? 30 min., 40 min. or what. I'm looking for approx. 3 inches elevation @ 10 yards. Mike in Wis.
