Looks pretty sweet, I just upgraded from sportsmatch TO84 to the Mountain Tactical 20moa pic rail and Seekins medium rings when I mounted my NX8 a few months back and needed a little more height. This new mount seems like best of both worlds.

This looks interesting. Let me know what you think of it. Of course I just bought the Spuhr mount for black friday

I’m curious what guys will think of it. Honestly Iv been less than impressed with my mountain tactical stuff. It works but it’s never appeared to be the highest quality.

I like their Tikka bottom metal, but wasn't impressed with the mags. Sold the 2 ide bought and got more factory mags. Also for hunting, metal on metal was noisy

I like their mags and bottom metal. Everything Iv gotten has been functional, just lacking in quality, small imperfections, sloppy finishes. I actually really like their mags. I bought them before you could buy factory m+ though, now I need to grab a few of those.

Is the factory M+ the 6.5PRC mag? Is there somewhere to buy them new?

This mount looks simple, light, and checks all the boxes I'm looking for except I'm sure it's made of 6061AL.

M+ is the creedmoor mag as well, around 2.9”, though my current rounds .060 off the rifling wouldn’t even fit. I can handle the bit sticking out on the MT mags.

As said MT makes decent stuff, but holding one of their parts in my hand next to a sterk, area 419 or spuhr part it’s immediately noticeable

I had that mountain tactical bottom metal for a few years. I like that the trigger guard is larger than the factory one but I don’t think it improved the rifle all that much.

Looks pretty silly to me, the whole idea of a dovetail system is to be able to get optimum ring spacing
