The problem with the optilocks is there mediums are too low, there real expensive and the screws are soft so they strip out all too ofter. Call neer mfg in canada and ask him what the deal is with the optilocks! But if you can stay away from leupold on the tikkas and sakos and stick with ringmounts if you can.
I mostly concur, I just think it is stupid to use the 6x40 screw on mount when you have integrals.

I am a saddle mount kind of guy, and not just a saddle mount I want the saddle mount attached to the receiver, not to set of bases.

The Spuhr system is ideal, but any saddle mount similar like the TRG mount is gravy.

If you don't like saddle mounts and you want a pair of rings instead that is your business.
