    Weaver Rail for Weatherby Vanguard????? Help!!!


    I have got a Weatherby Vanguard and I need a Weaver/Picatinny rail.

    I have just bought the one that is designed for the Remington 700 as normally the scope bases match.

    When I went to fit it the screw holes are the right distance apart to screw into the action, but the Weatherby action must be 1/4" longer so therefore do not line up with both front and back screws.

    Has anyone else managed to get a weaver rail for their Weatherby Vanguard?

    As you have found out the, Remmy 700 and Howa actions while they have the same profiles the bridges and not the same distance apart,hence while 2 piece bases fit fine, one piece ones don’t, you need a rail to fit a Howa, 3 Eye Tactical do them or contact Jager S A off here he might have one in stock.
