When attaching the mount it was apparent that the rear portion of the mount was thicker at the receiver contact point such that when fastened in place with the rear screw, the front of the mount spaced away from the receiver. I chose to mill the rear of the receiver at the top of the rear sight block also the area behind it. The amount of material removed was approximately .015 t inch.
The fit is now very solid, but the rifle has not been test fired, so a final approval for the build is not yet possible. The rings seem lock in positively and the gray parkerized finish is very attractive.
The mount I received had rough machining marks. The rear of the base where the screws go was not even flat, as if when the piece was threaded it distorted the metal preventing the rear ring from ever sitting level. Also, the rings only came with one screw and no screws were included for the mount itself. Do NOT buy this mount.
