Picatinny Rail mount question

I am looking to mount a Burris AR-332 on my 188 seires Ranch Rifle. Has anyone had any experience with the GG&G picatinny scope mount? Is it any good or is there another picatinny mount I should look at that will fit the Ranch rifle scope ring mounting system? All advise greatly appreciated.

It's what I used to mount a Burris Eliminator 2 on my Mini 6.8 - works great!

The GG&G is the best receiver mount I've owned. It is well made, and is not bulky at all. The only thing I did not realize is it has to be centered on the receiver. It is clamped to the rifle using 4 machine screws. The screw heads are what actually clamp the mount to the rifle. This means you have to really pay attention, and make sure it is centered.

If you need to take it off. On the rifles with the scope grooves, 581,582, just
loosen one side and when you put it back on the scope will need less zeroing.

I run mine with a Bushnell TRS25 Red dot. Love it.

I've read where a lot of guys get the mount setup where they want it, then use RED LocTite on the screws on the left-hand side of the action, as well as BLUE LocTite on the screws on the right-hand side. This allows you to loosen the screws on the right side of the receiver, remove the optic and mount (i.e., to remove the bolt), then re-install and return to zero.

I used a Warne Picatinny rail on mine to mount the Bushnell TRS-25. it works great, but I doubt it would repeat if I took the optic off and put it back on.

I found out today from a Leupold tech that every 1/1000th of and inch of misplacement equals 1MOA! at the target.

This eliminates all but the absolute best designed and made mounts out there. Note I said "Designed and Made?"

A well made mount with a sucko design is not worth the really ridiculous $ that many of these mounts cost.

A good design does not need to cost a fortune. I just paid $34 for a one piece mount for my Beeman R1, which is an Arse kicker of a spring powered Airgun, that would kill a high dollar scope in a matter of 100 shots.

Once torqued down it has stayed in place perfectly (I marked it so I could tell) If that mount will work on that gun, it would work on any high powered rifle out there.
