    Default Quick Release Weaver mounts?

    Has anybody ever tried these mounts? How reliable are they?
    Pro's & Cons?
    Will you lose zero when removed and refitted?

    I also considered those but have been told that the mechanism is not that sturdy....how often are you going to swap scopes on the Steyr anyway?

    Not that often really. Probably never...
    I just like the fact that they are 5.8 mm high. i will need a low mount considering I will be using the scope ramp.

    I have also considered this route because I could not find a case to suit the Steyr with hamster and scope ontop. By removing the scope "quickly" to store it a normal case it seemed to be the route to go, however i was also not happy about the idea of removing the scope every now and then.

    no...removing the scope is not a good idea
    I can source the 30mm Weaver low profile mounts from Leapers..in fact I will bring in a whole bunch with the next order.
    Otherwise they are available in JHB, the ones I use came from there...can find out if anyone needs..let me know.

    Hi Guys, I've got a Krico 308 with a Schmidt & Bender 2-6 & quick detach mounts. Can't remember the make but do have the info somewhere. Will look for it and post it here. I will also try and load a photo of the rifle. OK, this serious quility but is 100% reliable on the 308. I will take the scope of and put it back, no problems. As for the Weaver mounts, I have no experiance, but if the quality is right, the technology works.
