Burris has a similar style they call Universal,  Millett has a version called Turn-In Standard.  If I remember correctly Nikon had a bash at it also years ago.  But good old Redfield was first & I think the best. 
I now only use Weaver style mounts, because once in Germany I dropped my rifle (yeah, I know, dumb-a_ _), and had a Redfield SR. base holding the scope, and wish I had it in a Weaver set up, with a stand by scope.  But I didn't........aw well.
NOW, I do always have a back up scope in my pack, with a pre-zeroed scope.  But haven't dropped a rifle since the first & only time.

.....and Twice Shy!

It was not only a nice German social hunt, it was a 900 hectare (that's a bit more than 2,223 acres) full of wild boar. roe deer and fox.  No bag limit, and being one of the  guest, it was all FREE (very rare in Germany, everything cost).

And here I am standing with my foreign finger up my American butt.

When I call back to say hi, at the end, the 'Good bye' comment always mentions to some degree, 'Don't drop anything'  and it has only been 17 years ago.

I even always have a back up rifle now.........................."Never again!"

Thanks,
 
    Due to the type of mount I am going to use I will probably have to stick with Redfield type.  I am building up a sporter on an old Greek MS split bridge type reciever.  The best looking mount I have found so far uses Redfield type only.

You can't go wrong with the Redfield system, I promise you will not regret it.

I like the Burris rings because of their little plastic inserts that grip the scope and don't mar it up.

Do Weaver and Burris make Redfield type mounts.  The mounts will probably come from Watts Walnut.  They make an old type for the split bridge recievers and they only accept Redfield type rings.
 
Thanks

Weaver Grand Slam rings are Redfield style.  Millett, Burris and Leupold all make Redfield style rings.
