I'm with Trout, get a Mueller if you can't afford top-o-the-line. I put one on my 35 Whelen last summer and no problems yet. And that thing really kicks the snot out of me, so we'll see about recoil issues. Other than that, haven't had a problem with the ones on my 223 and 22 mag either. Those two have been mounted for about 3 years without a lick of a problem... Except when I'm not on my game.
Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.
