    Good quality. Machined from a solid piece of metal. There is a nice assortment of holes, slots, and threaded holes for attachment.

    However, the top is not flat as I would prefer or understood it to be. It is shown as flat in the webpage photo, but customer service provided photos were accurate. Despite this, the rep insisted it was flat topped when asked for clarification. Instead of flat, it has two lips that poke up for use on a curved tube rather than for flat tube rings. This means that longer screws need to be used, there is less surface area contact with the rings, and the rail does not sit flush in the dovetail clamp. It is for this reason I have to ding it down a star. Provide a flat top version in the future, swap mine for it, and I’ll upgrade this review to 5 stars.

    I agree and confirm the previous review from r_kruser. Qualith machining, after grinding down the lips on the edge which are designed to go directly to a OTA, it easily mounted onto my OTA which already had mounting brackets on each end of the tube. The length of the dovetail plate helps let me balance the declination axis.
