When you see it in your hand you will understand that its one of the most rigid mount made. You could pull a trailer from it. Not that you would just saying its super strong. Here's a shot of the mounting bolts using 4 M8 bolts. The backing plate that mounts to the ring is 1/4 inch aluminum so its pretty stout.Looks real good with the added bonus of having a billet dust cover. Got to ask though.... how does it handle high winds, any Flexing or whatnot? Wondering because of how much sticks out unsupported from the mounting point.
Best looking sidemount so far IMO.
