I doubt you will find lighter or cheaper, but look at leupold backcountry mounts. Similar to Talley in that they are 1-piece, but much nicer lines.

Do you know if they have a ring that fits directly onto a Picitinni rail.

THanks

I'm not sure how much they weigh, but ATRS makes some stellar rings. I have 3 pair of the 30mm lows, extremely solid rings. Will see if I can get an accurate weight on them for you.
