I just picked up an Aimpoint 5000 for a song. The mount is a mystery though. It's a single point picatinny mount. The ring part has a 6 screw cap. The odd part is that it seems to have an upward tilt. The scope is not level. Do any tactical rifles have a rail that tilts down as it goes forward? Thanks.

Check out the torque on the screws!

 It looks to me as if the entire mount has been  bent upward by careless handling, a fall, etc.  I'd buy a new mount.
