There are a few other places that have them cheap too.  I am not crazy about the sideways rings though.  Another option might be to use a YHM riser and my existing rings.  Not sure if that will be enough height, the XTR has a 50mm objective.

    Decided to go with a Burris  P.E.P.R.

    You can get the QD model for $80 on ebay, which isn't too bad.   Especially if I buy an ebay gift card at the grocery store to get credit for fuel points.  I like that the rings aren't sideways, easier to mount things without the scope turning that way.  Only downside is that it doesn't come in FDE.

    Good mount. That's what's currently mounting my Nikon to my .300BLK.

    Do you have the QD version?  If so, does it lock up solid?     I'm probably going to wait a couple weeks to order it, that way my gift card fuel points will roll over into next month.   

    Been looking for a bipod too.  I'm thinking I'll go with the Harris 1A2-BRM.  I'll need to figure out if I can just attach it directly to the hand guard or if I will need to get a rail section and an adapter.   The Alexandria Pro Fab hand guard uses a proprietary system that is a little different than usual.  It has these little plates with threads that sit on the inside of the rail.  Then you attach your accessory rail section to them with screws through the holes in the handguard.  However, I think the screws are the same size as a YHM sling stud,  so I think I might be able to just get one of the plates and put it directly on there and attach the harris bipod without having to add the rail and adapter. 

    I'm really looking forward to seeing what this thing will do with a good optic and bipod on it.
