I am off to france on fri with mark from stalking england on the boar and really looking forward to it but had a big dilema do i take my 270 or the 300 win but scope on the 270 is a 3-9-40 and really wanted a dot sight but things have been tough so couldnt afford to get a top spec scope ,anyway i have gone down the cheap route now i hear sighs already but glyn off here was kind enough to give me a one piece scope mount which i could adapt to a picitiny rail.
I left the pins on the scope rail and drilled the picitiny to fit over the pins and i the drilled and tapped the sako rail so the picitiny would screw to that i then araldited the pins for a stable platform.
next came the fitting of the dot sight and off to the range for testing and zero which i ran out of adjustment so back home to inspect the dotsight which at the front they are bolted on to a rubber cushion so i released it and fitted a higher cushion to give me more adjustment . today i went back for more testing and managed to zero perfectly and after putting 50 rounds down the 300 win i am now happy and has held zero perfect so i am now ready for france, I will post my efforts on the trip and hopefully can take the camcorder for footage , atb wayne
pics pretty crap but off iphone,
