Best scope mounts for SAKO 75?

i stripped a hex head screw on my optilocks for the 15th time. I do like the plastic insertc to maximize contact and minimize torquing of the scope. What other mounts are worth a look> ANyone try S&K rings?

Near manufacturing makes a very nice one peice base that fits right over the factory tapered dovetail. You can use many choices of rings with his base.

What he said. I screwed around w/several different options before trying the Near base. Trust me, just spend the money and get one. You will be much happier w/it than anything anyone else has to offer.

He'll do them in either SS or blue. Somewher around $150 and worth every penny.

If your in a hurry, this might not be the best route to go.
I know he has been real busy lately, but you can find all the info you'll need on his website: www.nearmfg.com

It slides on tight. You take a wooden block and tap it on with a hammer. He provides screws and it has holes with threads so that you can have your action drilled and tapped. I have not mounted mine yet. I'm thinking about using Epoxy to hold mine in place, it's a good chance it would stay in place by just the tight dovetail fit unless you have a muzzle brake. If you have a muzzle brake better either screw it on or Epoxy it on. I had mine on but removed it because I'm wanting to use the Leupold QRW low 30mm rings and the scope turret housing is about .015 to big to fit without bottoming out on the high points of the base. I'm wanting to machine .015-.020 off four of the islands to clear using the low ring. I think he "Richard Near" still have these in inventory in Stainless Steel. The cost is $159.00 plus shipping.
