two piece mounts on a springer can suffer creep, where the clamping area is not sufficient to prevent the mount slipping backward with the recoil, the longer clamping area of a one piece prevents this!

on a precharge its not an issue, I have heard about using a one piece on a hw100 something to do with stiffening up the breeech block as its a two piece unit bolted together?
I use a HW100S with two piece adjustable mounts from sportsmatch but have not seen any problems in this area, i would think a scope tube clamped between the two mounts would be stiff enough s
