Default Bassett M1A scope mounts

My Springfield 3rd Generation aluminum mount comes loose occasionally. I saw the Bassett website and a video on YouTube. Sounds interesting, but are there any folks here that could share their experiences with the product?

I've got 2 Bassett mounts on my rifles and I love them. They're easy to mount and hold their zero when removed and reinstalled. I torque mine to 22 inch pounds and have zero problems with them

Excellent product. Properly torqued they should give your years of service.

I added a Basset Standard Low Scope Mount to my last M14 Variant Build in 2013.

For me it is easy to install & remove and it holds zero well.

The Bassett is a great mount, and holds its zero even after being removed and replaced. I appreciate the little wrench they supply for torqueing the mounting screw correctly and consistently, using only the weight of the rifle itself.

I really do like their low mount. Form and function are simply an engineering marvel that works. They produce different models to suit most user's demands.
Easily transferable from rifle to rifle and the darn things hold true. When installed per instructions they tend to stay fast.

Something new? I know there had been a discussion that they might have gone under but I see their web site is back up...

I think I will order the low per NF1E preference. I value his expertise on M14's.
