Would you consider this one piece standard Leupold mount a "TRUE" one piece like the ones you all are referring to?  What I mean is that this one piece base does not have a full rail picatiny and instead use the dovetailed Leupold rings.  Also due to the recess in the one piece design, would you think it would still interfere with loading and unloading if you don't have a detachable box?

Here's the pic.

  There is a lot to be said for this line of thought in regards to a hunting rifle.

 It really makes for easier loading and unloading of the loading port on a rifle with a blind box magazine. Especially with cold fingers. 

 

Good points if he has a ADL Remington. 

 

All my rifles have a hinged magazine floorplate's or have a detachable magazine. I hate "milking" rounds out of a rifle.

 

Other than that, I've used rails for a number of years with no problems to report.

 

  Yeah, cheaptrick I can't argue with that, either.  I've never been entirely happy with either configuration. The blind boxes require you to "milk" live rounds out, detachable box magazines usually protrude downward too far, and hinged floorplates have been known to become unlatched. Unexpectedly. In the dark. In minus 20degree F. temps. In 2 feet of snow. They also suck the heat from your hand when you carry the gun by the belly.

 Long one-piece bases DO solve a lot of mounting problems, and generally prevent alignment problems sometimes seen in 2- piece systems...despite them covering the loading port , I usually choose them myself. Sometimes you just have to compromise something...

  Well that mount seems to be very popular here in the Wisconsin deer woods. There really isn't anything wrong with it. It's quite strong, windage-adjustable and nicely machined and finished. The cutout area helps with clearance somewhat.( Which really isn't more than a bit of an annoyance in most cases, anyway.)

 They are reasonably priced and available for many firearms, too. I've installed many of them without problems. Still prefer a Picatinny rail these days though...
