Same as Dave been using Sportsmatch for 20 odd years, robust, cheap, reasonably well made and more importantly able to swap and change scopes guaranteeing zero. Will need a proper cut dovetail though.

Theres no standard rifle dovetail across the manufacturers, in fact can have three different rail sizes on same gun by same producer that will drop straight over other producers dovetails.
Weaver wont have as much grab circa 1.89mm as a proper dovetail 3.65mm, neither does the superior picatinny/Stanag circa 2.6mm grab depth which is to a spec. Realistically all they offer is set stops to position the mount which can mean not getting the correct eye relief as you are unable to slide mount down the rail or have only one critical position the mount can be fixed to the scope tube.
