XS Model 700 Sight Base with Imbedded Aperture

I'm considering the XS aperture, which is embedded in a Weaver-style mount for 700 rifles. It's 65 bucks but it'd probably save you that much in ammo over the years. The only time you see it is when the scope comes off and there it is, all zeroed and ready to use. Just set it and forget it.

Anybody using one of these?
“Nine-tenths of tactics are certain, and taught in books: but the irrational tenth is like the kingfisher flashing across the pool, and that is the test of generals. It can only be ensured by instinct, sharpened by thought practicing the stroke so often that at the crisis it is as natural as a reflex.” ~ T. E. Lawrence

That is pretty cool. I also wonder why base manufacturers do not integrate a bubble level in the rear of the base...
