Unless you can find a used one, this is about the only place to buy one. It is a terrific mount.

Not that I'm aware of, but Explore Scientific has a very similar product, Twilight dual scope mount. There is one for sale on AM right now. There's a review somewhere on CN I've read.

I got mine a few years back from Mark at Teton. You might try pm'ing him and see if he has any left or point you in the right direction.

His CN name is maknewtnut.

Tech2000 sells the GR2 for $310, which is excellent by the way.These guys don't advertise anymore and they are hard to find.I got me one 6 years ago and never regretted it.

No reason to go for the Giro III, unless of course you intend to use more than a 50 lb load on it.
