I'm wanting to hear from those of you who have had a problem with these of any kind in the "Dual Dovetail" I've read about them bending on other threads and I know that if twisted in & out more than once they loose a lot of their original holding abilities. I know they are not as strong as the Picatinny / Weaver system. I'm wanting to get my scope lower on a Sako 75 and the Optilocks, Talley's, and all other forms of Weaver / Picatinny don't bring it down like the Burris Dual Dovetail system. I'm mounting a 30mm tube with 44mm Objective that has a total O.D.of 2.090". If I'm not hunting dangerous game, on a high dollar hunting trip, Marine Sniper, would not the Dual Dovetail be ok? Is there maybe ways to make it better? I thought of an idea that may help...use a very high grade of grease on parts before twisting the ring in the base, clean out all grease with carb. cleaner or brake cleaner, after drying fill in the under side with a good grade of Epoxy / JB Weld. Any engineers out there maybe could tell me if getting the parts; both ring & base or just ring or just base very cold prior to twisting them together would help prevent the metal from shaving off? I was also thinking just how bad is it for the scope mounts to bend if the scope got hit in such a way to bend the mounts...wouldn't this kind of act as a "sheer pin" and maybe keep the scope from absorbing the full impact? Anyway I've not bought these yet but thinking about the Burris Signature so I can use the offset inserts to bring the scope to zero while the scope is still optically centered. I've seen the Conetrols mounts and they seem nice but very expensive for the 30mm system. I could not tell by looking at their website but with all of the adjustments in them they should have the floating centers or do they?? The price would not seem to high for me if they also have the floating centers like Burris or Optilocks. I've worked with the RWS air rifle mount that has those ring / windage adjustments along with elevation..a lot of care has to be used to keep from putting stress on your scope. Anyway thanks for any who care to share their thoughts on this subject..I know that I can be wrong about my own conclusions.
