I have to AZ style mounts which had the cheapish fixed dovetail adapters which have a small brass part connected to the end of the adjuster screw (so only grip the dovetail with this). This means that you have to slide the dovetail in from the end of the adapter and can't open the clamp and put the dovetail in at an angle and use the length of the adapter to secure the dovetail.
The ADM brand is well known and have been my goto for dovetails and saddle adapters, and having the dual fit allows you to have more area on your dovetails for fixing guide scopes etc.
So having checked the centre offset of the 2 holes as 35mm on this ADM model I was pleased to find they fitted exactly as expected, even 2 bolts were supplied, though I used my own as the mounts needed a size smaller.
I would recommend these to anyone dealing with the same mounting issues with the cheaper adapters needing a better/easier setup.
