    Have a set on back order in 30mm for my new M12 Max 9.3x62....being told a few weeks before they show up. Biggest complaint with the German made rifles is lack of availability and back order waits. Europtics.com is great to deal with and gets orders right out to you as soon as things come in. Talk to Tyler if you want a set, he’s top notch.

    Good news and thanks for the update! I'm keen to hear of both the build quality and the reliability of return to zero.

    I'm based in Ireland and have just purchased one of the new Mauser M18's in 6.5 Creedmoor (ideal for our local deer species). I have a Schmidt & Bender variable with 56mm objective and a Nightforce with same objective that I'd like to switch between so will be good to hear your first hand review. Thanks again and looking forward to hearing from you.

    Was told they are medium height. Most of the quick detach mounts I’ve had seemed to sit a tad bit higher than my fixed mounts, but it’s never been noticeable when I was shooting. Will post a picture once mine arrive.

    They showed right about the time my parents flew in for a week’s visit. Had to leave on a business trip after that so haven’t had a chance to mount them up yet. Will post when I get back this weekend and get a chance to set them up.

    Well, first impression is that these are a pain in the ass to mount. Bases need to be mounted with adhesive and screws, Grrr. I’ve always just used a little locktite on the threads, never had an issue, bot Mauser is specifying an adhesive with the screws. The quick releases need to be adjusted, ones too lose and the other is too tight, but the torx screws are so tight I can’t get them lose to attempt the adjustments needed. Fighting with these for over an hour and finally said the hell with this, before I screw something up or strip the heads. Going to take the rifle and mounts over to our gun shop and have their smith do the mounting. Sure he’ll have the tools and know how to get these mounted, where I’m just getting frustrated. FYI, the instructions aren’t very good.

    Jesus that sounds like a nightmare already! I've heard they are finicky but not that that bad, let's see how the gunsmith does - best of luck and keep us updated!
