Hello, I' m a new member.
 
I' d like to know if someone have some experience with this mounts.
 
For that I know, they are made in Germany, are built in 7075 (like ARC, Spuhr, USO and no other I know: all other usually is 6xxx alu family or steel), have a lot of very well-enginereed gadget; compared to Spuhr, are 30% less expensive.
 
But, at least, I dont' know anybody who employ this products.
 
Why?
 
Thank you for any kind of information.

Thanks for greetings.

 

I've seen there's no experience about: I'm thinking I'll do the test.

 

At the moment, I need 3 mounts: a fixed one for my T3 in 6,5 x 55, this one 'll be a Spuhr SP-4001, and two fast detach, one for my SPARC and one for my Optasight.

 
I'm think to take a ERA-TAC fast detach for my SPARC and put it on a Benelli MR1, and one for Optasight/Benelli M4.

Bad news.
It's arrived my ERA-TAC picatinny for my Tikka T3 (item 57050-2081 in their catalogue).
 
Foolishly I haven't make any check before the bedding; today I' ve bedded it, and I' ve seen it's not flat; I' ve thightening screws with my Fat Wrench, it's not a mounting error.
 
Now I have to disassemble this lemon and order a new picatinny, NOT a ERA-TAC this time.

Are u certain its not the top of your reciever?   Is it bending as you tighten your base bolts? Many many recievers are out of square. Thats pretty common

I've run across a few receivers that were "out" in windage (screw holes out of proper alignment, original reason I started using Millet Angle-Loc rings) and had one that had to be shimmed with a Picatinny.  However, that is a pretty big differential.  Mass production is, at times, inconsistent.

Apologize for delay.
I have removed this piece of cr@p;
 
 
 
My T3 beavertail is OK, surely non perfect (NOTHING is perfect) but standard; in fact, I have bedded the item because the "dry" assembly can't be perfect and have no stress, but this picatinny is a circle arc.
 
Yesterday I've talking with mr. Alessandro Contessa for a 20 MOA picatinny, I have to attend 2 week.
 
The good: I take the item directly in his work and can't have another nasty surprise.
 
The bad: I' ll like something in 7075, this one is made of steel.
