I've been bitten by the Ruger Rimfire Series bug and have been gearing up to get into the local matches.
I traded into a 10/22 that was set up "tacticool" style and had a nice set of aperture sights affixed to a full length rail system. I'd been thinking about adding an optic to it and had heard good things about Primary Arms and their Aimpoint clones. I figure for a range toy/rimfire shoot gun It'll do nicely.
So one pops up for sale on our local forum (www.carolinashootersforum.com
) and I bit. When it arrived I liked everything about it except the mount. It was a high cantilever and the HK SL8 style sights I have will not co-witness with the optic. I need the standard low mount apparently.
I emailed Primary Arms to enquire about purchasing a standard mount as I didn't see that as an option on their website.
Quoted below is our email exchange in it's entirety:

I recently purchased one of your M3 red dots used with the cantilevered high mount. I need a low mounting option for the rifle I intend to use it on. The cantilever high is too high to co-witness (HK SL8 Sights on a railed 10/22). How much would it cost to purchase a standard low mount?
Needless to say I was highly impressed. I bought the optic used. I had no expectations of a free mount, I simply wanted to find out how to purchase one. They responded quick and with the offer to ship it to me for free!
That's Customer Service for you, and I'll be purchasing products from them again in the future.
