    Bruce, ive a well kitted out machine shop. Manufacturing a mount from scratch, in house will not be a problem.. What i will do is manufacture the mount sans top half of the ring, using a couple of spare ERA TAC ring tops.
    3D Printing a mount from Ti64 is tickling me at the mo, but i can't realy warrant the expence investment (we 3D Print sound suppressors)

    Here's what an IWS with Weaver/Picatinny rail will get you. Should be quite suitable for scopes with larger diameter objectives, and that's most of them these days.
    Notice that the IWS rail is in the forward position and can be moved back a good inch from what is shown in the first photo.
    Low Stanag rings without the need for the rail would drop the scope down another 1/2" or so.

    For those who may be interested, I'm looking into having some Weaver/Picatinny rails made that will replace the usual Stanag rail on the IWS bracket. It will be a case of remove two screws take the original rail off and screw this one on.

    A Picatinny rail would need to be offset about 1/4" to the right to clear the main body of the bracket and leave clearance for rings, so an 11mm rail is another option being looked at.

    This should give the lowest and longest possible mounting and eliminate the need to use the rare and expensive Stanag rings.

    Will have more info shortly.

    I can manufacture them if you have drawings or an example.

    Thanks for the suggestion; that might work Pete. We'll see what the local firm says as the inquiry there is in already.

    Then, there is the Canadianicon solution: The Griffin and Howe setup.

    A seriously robust-looking piece of kit.

    The REL type mount is better. The mount slides on from the rear and cannot recoil forward due to the front pin.

    The G&H mount slides on from the front and the pins are the lock and the friction of the clamp. So the forces of recoil try to pull the rings off the same way it slides off.

    The REL system mount solves the SSR mount problem that the Swedes (postwar) used the jack screw on the M41B and the Germans tried the vertical lock screw thru the mount.

    well let me know if i can help out. I'll be manufacturing a mount to use 34mm scope tubes, with adapter rings to reduce to 30mm soon any how. so an additional bracket type wouldn't be any hassle. I'll probably do a picatinny version too. Stood in the shower earlier i had a strange vision of an Enfield in an L96A1 type chassis.. just for fun.. I made such chassis to fit Howa's and Tikka's so that would be kind of fun... But I want to get this Burris XTR II on the rifle first.. and what a blow in that direction, just found out the other day that Burris discontinued the 1-8x24 XTR II..
