Seriously I have One Sadlak Airborne and two Sadlak steel. Also one A.R.M.S #18 which in turn is really an updated Brookfield.
I think the Airborne is the best.

Thanks from AzMedic

Lee Emerson (member Different) has compiled an M14 Scope Mount FAQ that should answer your questions:

Also, Sadlak has an excellent website that describes in detail the differences between their mounts and the old Brookfield mount:

I used a SA Gen 4 mount for a while. I picked up a used Sadlack steel airborne mount for a very good price, and it is a much better mount. SA mount would loosen up. Not in a major way but I found that annoying. People like them though. I had no trouble selling the SA mount for close to what I paid.
