Quick question regarding the fitting if tikka mounts.
My curiosity has been raised by a recent magazine article (cant't remember the exact publication, although shooting times comes to mind) where the fitting of mounts with an 'arrrestor' was described. The tikka mounts I possess have an arrestor that overhangs the bottom of the mouns, presumably to hang down into the ejection port.
I would have thought that the mount with the arrestor would be fitted to the rear of the two, to prevent the recoil moving the zero. However, the author of the article suggested that the arrestor mount be fitted at the front of ejection port, as zero is affected where the rifle recoils under the scope/mounts and the scope/mounts try to remain in the same place.
So my (longwinded!) question is this:
Should the mount with the arrestor be fitted at the front or rear of the pair?
