Flicking through some old threads I came across the 1st picture below. What drew my attention to it is the fact that the mounts look the same as mine, however the front mount appears to be the opposite way round from mine. I have always found that I struggle to bring my scopes far enough back to allow for a comfortable eye relief.
I've had a look at mine (see second) photo and dont think I can turn mine around as it seems to be tapered where the base slides on.
Am I missing something and being really dumb or is there another type of base that allows the ring to be attached further back?
Apologies to ejg for using his image. Let me know if its a problem
