I've got a friend who gave me a extended one piece weaver base for my savage 10pc, didn't know if it was worth using or should I pony up and buy a badger ordanance?

Good bases can be had for less than the badger,  TPS, imo, is just as good fit and finish wise and cost less.  I wouldn't use the weaver personally, but thats just me.

Go with something other than weaver, TPS isn't that bad on my rifle

Just got home with a caliper from work and broke out a straight edge to check this base out, Every thing is square and consistent through out the base. So I mounted it  and the mounting holes couldn't have been drilled any better. It also has a recoil lug similar to that of the badger ordanance mount. Over all it seems to be a quality mount, Im going to roll with it and see how it holds up.
