Question for those using a Cheely XWF Heavy Open Frame

I'm wondering if using a single-sided mount that centers the optic in-line with the bore on a regular width frame, such as the Everglades mount, would still do so if used with a CGW XWF Heavy Open frame.

 

I can see via the description and pictures that the XWF Heavy Open frame has a recessed area where the 5x mounting holes are, but i'm unsure how deep the recession are cut and if it would mimic that of a regular width frame.

 

Anyone running a XWF Heavy Open frame that would be able to comment on if they were able to center an Everglades or similar mount over the bore?

No experience with the Everglades mount. Matt build my gun with the XWF frame and his mount for an RTS2. The recess in the frame looks to be slightly less than half the thickness of the side of the mount where the 5 screws are. The centerline of the optic is ever so slightly to the left of the centerline of the bore, viewed from the rear. The offset is so minimal that it's not noticeable at a glance. Keep in mind I didn't measure anything, just how it looks with my good eye.

I've had 3 guns built on XWF frames now. What Pat Rafferty did for me, with a standard Cheely Mount twice, and an Everglades mount once, is machine the "mounting pad" on the optic mount flush with the rest of the mount. He did not cut the frame recess. There MIGHT be a few thousandths difference from "exact" center over bore, but I have never noticed it. I think that is something you're not going to notice while shooting, at all, and I've never paid it no mind as long as it's within 10-30 thou.
