hi

i am putting a scope on a new rifle.a friend said to use high mounts.now i always mount my scopes as close to the barrel as i can get.always thought that would be more acurate.Listening to my friend i was curious if it matters?Thinking about triing it but it does not seem like it would be beneficial to me.woundering what othere people think. thanks for the time.

    Got a really great deal on a New England Handi Rifle in .308. It had a Simmons scope on it with a set of see through mounts. Real akward to see through the scope with that mount. Want to mount a Weaver K4 on it. Suggestions as to a good mounting system. Keep in mind I'll need clearance for the hammer.

    By the way.......what can I expect to pay for a 20 guage shot gun barrel for it?

    I purchased a Rem. 700 and it came with scope mounts. Does anyone use these or is it a recommended practice that I just go out and purchase better ones?

    I just mounted a 3x9-50 scope on a Optima elite with Belgarra barrel. My guestion is how close is too close for the scope bell and barrel clearance? It clears the barrel by 1/16".[:D]

    I have a Browning (Japan) 1885 rifle with 24" half octagon barrel.
    The receiver and barrel are factory drilled & tapped for mounting
    a scope.
    Can anyone tell me which bases and/or mounts will fit this rifle.
    I haven't been able to find information specific to this rifle.
    Thanks for any help or suggestions on this !

    I need advice. I have a scope mounted on a Remington MOdel 700 that is shooting at least 8 inches high at 25 yds with the elevation cranked all the way down. I am using Luepold bases and medium height rings, would changing to low mount Luepold rings bring down the point of impact enough to make it useableat say 100 yds?? I am still getting very tight groupings, just way too high

    New to mounting a scope. I ordered a set of leupold rings and bases and they don't fit, the rings are dovetail and the bases are standard which leads me to my question. Which is better, the dovetail with no windage base adjustment or the standard with the windage base adjustment. I am mounting a leupold scope and leupold says that their scopes have enough built in adjustment that you don't need the base windage adjustment. Any commments.

    MAGSHOOTER300,

    You might need to contact New Ultralight Arms as this rifle was his original design before Colt bought the rights. Melvin Forbes ended up buying the company back from Colt after they screwed it up. He should be able to help you with getting the right rings and bases.

    I thought I had seen some w/ Talley ultralights on them. I checked Talley's website but did not see Colt LR listed. A call to Talley may be worthwhile. They have always helped me.
