What do you think?
Any member use this mount?
How well this mount hold zero?
I plan to use this mount with my new Nikon Team Primos scope on my newly build 6.8spc.
It looks like it will have room for Matech BUI.

They work great if the ring spacing is good for you and the scope is able to be forward enough for you.  As for zero I never tested it.  There should be enough room for the BUIS.

The Matech covers 2 complete slots, so it should fit with maybe a rail width to spare, if you can have the mount overhanging the front of the receiver like in the pic.  If you need the mount flush or behind the front of the receiver, the Matech probably won't fit.  It takes up more real estate than most BUIS.

The Wilson Combat doesn't add a whole lot of forward eye relief.  As you can see in the pic, that scope's eyepiece is a bit behind the charging handle, so if you shoot anywhere near NTCH, you won't have enough eye relief with many scopes.  This is especially true of illuminated scopes, which tend to have longer eyepieces.

Rock solid mount. Not enough relief for me. IM me and I'll sell you mine on the cheap.

Had the Wilson and the Armalite one piece.Stayed with the Armalite because it was lighter and eye relief was more suited for me.They both hold zero very well.
