its a mount that lets you you put optics farther forward for quicker target acquisition.
so the optic would be over the barrel instead of on the receiver.


does anybody know of one???

Maybe you could convince XS to come up with one.
Actually, could you make one of the existing models fit.

The cantilever mount is intended to mount to the barrel, but keep the scope over the receiver. I suppose you could push it forward, or mount it backward. But if you are going to go through the trouble of making holes in the barrel, this might be a better route:


originally posted by Big-Bore:
I like to use the Extended Powers Custom base, the one that mounts on the receiver and the barrel. You mount it on the receiver, then spot center mark the holes on the barrel and D&T them. It gives a longer scope base for a bit more latitude in scope placement.


From this thread:

But, I think a rail that used the existing front two holes in the receiver, and the dovetail for the original rear sight. It would be extra kewl if it incorporated an adjustable sight at the rear of the unit. This would give you a BUIS and it would increase the sight radius.
