They sure look beefy... What are they made of?

They are made of 7075 Al, on a 5 axis machine apparently.  I've not tightened them up yet forgot to ask about torque setting but i'm guessing its around 15+/- for the top screws and 60-65 for the rail screws.

Wow, that sure looks like it'll get the job done!  I was wondering if you had tightened it down yet--it looks like you need to push it forward on the rifle before you do.

Yeah, I just got them on, as the guy who made them wanted some pics for his website, and I'm waiting for a new torque tool (borka).  Patience is becoming a pain at the moment.

Saddle looks to have very little clearance over the mount.

Looks nice.

your right, very little clearance indeed.  The guy ended up taking about 1/2m out from underneath where the turret assembly sits.  Very happy with it, would have liked the Spuhr in a uni-mount but still might move to the rings he offers.
