Best scope mount system 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?

    Yep, those screws can be a pain in the you know what. I've installed Conetrol mounts on one of my 75's and I like em' a lot. The only drawback to Conetrols is that they're somewhat more difficult to work with. If you're going to mount a scope and leave it, they should be fine. If you change scopes frequently they may not be the best option.

    I've heard that Talley makes mounts for the 75, but I have not seen or used any.

    I would go for harder screws for those same mounts. Otherwise those are excellent mounts. If had to replace those I would probably take Burris Signature rings.

    I have talley mounts on several model 75 sako's. Great mounts, but the best I have found for the price are the 2 piece picatinny mounts made by IOR/Valdada...you can reach Val of IOR at 1-303-979-4578 and he has them in stock. They slide on the tapered dovetail like the talley and then have a set screw that goes down into the knurled surface of the 75 so the bases won't walk off...almost identical to the talley with more versatility for ring position.
