    I'm trying to source a decent quality set of mounts which satisfy the following criteria:

    • 30mm
    • two-piece
    • self-centering design (similar to the BKL mounts)
    • low

    The lowest 30mm mounts I've seen to date, are the ones that came with my MTC Viper – but once I installed them, they were still sitting at an alarmingly jaunty angle, meaning that the scope wasn't centered over the barrel!

    The jaunty angle seems to be a characteristic of the two-piece clamp which is designed to work with two different widths of dovetail.

    Can anybody recommend a set of suitable mounts?

    Try here http://www.deben.com/optics/mounts/bkl/1inch_scopes_2pc.php

    I have used BKL mounts for years without any problems, my Leupy has sat on top of my Steyr for 4 years with a set of double strap BKL mounts. Never been off and i have genuinly never ever had to re-zero the scope in all those years.

    I think the trick is once you fit you leave them well alone.

    Nice one, Homey!

    I just wondered if there was anything similar to the BKLs, but lower?

    I have a set of milletts angle lock 30mm rings in low, they dont self centre but do have clamps both sides so the scope can be left centred and the windage and centralising adjusted on the mounts. they have been on for years with no problems.

    Cheers Simon.
