    Varmicide,
    Unless you're absolutely set on EAW, I would recommend get something less over-complicated and more robust/reliable.

    I started with EAW swing mounts on my 1st Sauer 202. I found I was having to rezero by about 1 click every morning when the rifle received rough-ish handling. Got rid of them and went for something simple and robust (and cheaper!)...problem solved.

    Ended up with 2 piece warne weaver style bases and TPS rings. Seriously robust in comparison! ...and much cheaper!

    edited to add a pic, the setup looked fine to my eye (sold the rifle now):

    ....hope this helps; over here EAW mounts are talked of as some sort of 'Holy Grail'amongst mounts, I just can't understand it, way too complicated and fragile.....perhaps I'm just left a bit 'anti EAW' after my experience of them /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif .....didn't mention the other downside is that they are seriously high too...almost set your scope up high enough to double duty as a carrying handle!

    I have to second what Matt said, EAW to many parts, problems with them shooting loose.
    But if you are set on some i can send you some over from Germany.
    regards Pete

    Have you still got the scope on that rifle brown dog?

    Looks just like my PMI? that I still am not 100% sure about the clk values on elevation.
