Samson Manufacturing recently introduced their Rapid Precision scope mount. The mounts, with a 2″ offset feature a lightweight design.
From Rapid Precision
Precision machined from 6061-T6 aluminum, these scope mounts are perfect to mate your favorite optic to your favorite firearm. Integrated into the clamp cross bolts are two steel recoil lugs to eliminate scope base movement during heavy recoil to better maintain zero. The scope ring bases utilize threaded steel inserts to prevent the internal threads from being stripped by the ring cap screws, extending the lifespan of the rings if you decide to change out the optic.
Requires 7/64″ hex wrench for rings and 1/2″ wrench for thumb nuts.

Samson says the 34mm, 35mm, and 1″ rings with 2″ offset will be coming soon.
The new scope mount will cost you $148.95 plus shipping. There were some questions as to the actual weight (what is lightweight?). The shipping weight is listed as 0.95 pounds on their site. The specifications tab lists the 30mm rings with the 2″ offset at 8.4 ounces. Those coming soon will be between 7.0 and 7.2 ounces.
