Customer Ratings & Reviews
Great customer service, amazing product, but just one caveat
I had to backorder the 20 MOA steel EGW mount. MSP's customer service was fantastic. They replied to my emails quickly, and as soon as they had the product in stock they shipped it. This EGW mount is hard to find on this website because there is no option to search for Weatherby or Howa under "Brands", you just have to type it in the search bar and hope for the best. The mount itself is perfect. laser straight, the mounting holes lined up perfectly, the threads on the screws were clean and hold up nicely. HOWEVER: You should definitely NOT use the torx bit provided by EGW to mount it. I had a moment of sheer panic when I felt something give while torquing one to spec. The screw was fine, but the torx bit had completely rounded off. I had it very well seated when torquing, too. So get yourself a good sturdy torx bit made of high carbon steel or at least one that's black oxide coated because the one provided must be made from Chinesium if it can't even handle 20 in-lbs.
