Thread: Varberger mounts

    Varberger mounts

    I'm looking for mounts for a Varberger, Redfield/ Leupold ideally but open to alternatives.

    Anyone fitted mounts to one of these?

    I can resist everything, except temptation.

    From memory (I had a 717) I believe that they may be the same as the Sauer or the Remington. I know that the question has come up before so do a site search and you will find the answer.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Thanks - did search, just wanted to check with someone who'd actually fitted before I buy!

    I have a Varberger and had Warne mounts on it and they were OK. I have just fitted a new scope and used Sportsmatch mounts. Had to remove some metal from the free side of the clamp to get a good solid fit.
    Answer appears to be spend as much money as you can on the mounts to get a good fit. Try 'Teir one TAC mounts' or Warne.
    How's your end of the gene pool today?

    Bill I think you may be confusing rings with mounts, Sportsmatch only make rings. From what you have said I would guess that your Varberger has the built in rail, not all Varbergers came this way. The model that I had for instance, a 717 if I remember right needed separate mounts.

    I've had a few through the doors most recent a Lakelander it just used weaver type mounts on the action.

    Just in case anyone on here has the same problem in future.....

    Rifle model is Varberger 777. Same profile as the 757. Both six lug bolts.

    Redfield SR bases - the CS model - fit action profile perfectly (suit Leupold turn in rings).

    The same profile rings also fit Colt Sauer; Sauer 90, 200(Sigrams).

    So in theory any other base fitting those other models will fit.

    US $30 plus $30 shipping plus 30 tax and charges on receipt (cheers UPS) but at least its fixed.

    Now I sup my porridge AFTER adjusting the windage screws.
