It's probably the mount. SA Inc. hasn't made a good mount for some time now. Try a Bassett mount, since the mount is easy on/off I'd say get the low picatinny mount. I know, my solution probably isn't what you want to hear, but it's realistic. Before you install the Bassett, make sure both the screw and hole threads are clean and dry, acetone is good for cleaning both.

If you want a primarily scoped platform go with the Sadlak, if you want to switch a lot or use irons a lot go with the Bassett. I mainly recommend Sadlak because they'll do whatever they can to get you a mount that goes on your rifle correctly without a gunsmith having to fool with it.

Of course the mount is only as good as the rings so definitely use decent rings made for picatinny rails.
