Do you have a close up of the mount from the side? Did you need to mod the stock to get clearance for the plate? Since I'm a southpaw shooter does the mount allow for a center over bore sighting? I've tried several side mounts before and they were always slightly offset to the left which made me have to come over the top of the stock to get a good sight picture. In fact I found some scope rings are actually off center if you turn them around. I found that the hard way. Took the rifle to the range and could not get the scope to zero. Then my buddy said hey why is your scope to one side. A quick measurement and yep 1/4 inch off.. argh.. Cheap rings bad range time.
Thanks Grindl

That was the reason for the "spacer" plate , I mentioned , Mark . I adjusted the mount in the vise to get it to a near perfect 90 degrees from side to top rail , after it was ready for mounting to insure the proper angle over barrel , but also had to make a spacer to move the scope bracket away from the receiver , approximately the 1/4 inch you refer to . The scope is "Barrel" or Bore centered , as close as possible .

I'll check my photos , and if I don't have one on my computer , or photo-bucket , I'll take one and get it loaded in the next day or so .

And yes . I did have to notch out a small amount of the stock , maybe 1/8th or 3/16ths , to get everything to match-up and have a good fit of the action to the stock . The bottom line of the mount is parallel to the baseline of the receiver .

Goin to hunt for the photos you requested , or take some , and get them up .
