Dednutz scope mounts?

Anyone have any first hand experience with the dednutz brand scope mounts?

I'm considering their one piece mount for my Remington 700. They look solid, and seem to have some good things said about them on the web, but most of it is just forum-babble here and there.

I'm mostly interested in them because of the price. The whole one-piece unit is almost the same price (or cheaper) than many quality scope-ring bases alone, without even bothering to figure in the cost of the rings themselves.

I know you get what you pay for. But I also know there are some good bargains out there if you look.

Are these mounts quality? Will I want to swap them out for what I should have bought in the first place a couple of months down the road? What's the skinny on them?

I like the ones on my Remington 30-06 and Savage .223 bolt actions. I know nothing on price or style as they were equipped before I got the guns, but they hold zero well and seem to be sturdy enough.

Suppose you were setting up another rifle...

Price being taken out of the equation, would you buy them again? Or go the more traditional base&rings route with another manufacturer? And why?

I think they do what they were designed to do. They certainly eliminate the torquing of the scope upon installation and seem to allow for more surface area attachment. Also, the design seems as if it "has" to be more stable than two separate ring mounts.

As always, the rifles are more accurate than i am so... yes, i would look into getting them again.

Have them on my 10/22 and would not go with anything else. Simple and rugged.

These the ring/base integral jobbies?

That then gun and or scope height specific. Ring span fixed too.

Depending on how you want a specific type of scope mounted, you could be hosed (esp if changing scopes).

If you know what will fit you, aren't going to change your mind, they might be a dandy setup.

I run Weaver bases (cheap) and Burris Zee rings. They allow me to fit a wide range of items easily.

I know PAt loves them. He'll be along.

I use EGW bases with Seekins rings now. If I didn't want to spend the money again, I would run the EGW base and Burris rings. If I wanted to spend more than I did I would run a Seekins base and Seekins rings.

For that money I would get an EGW base and Burris XTR rings. That will cost you about the same amount and be a better setup imnsho.
