I have a CZ452 in HMR, I've got a nice little Leupold 10x42 scope on it currently in some cheap sports match rings. The rings are not even straight on the action with the scope being canted off to one side. I've tried flipping the clamps over but it doesn't make any difference.
possible solutions are,
- Buy some Weaver grand slam rings, about £40
- buy some Kozap ones, about £90
Or this is the gun smithing part as I'm a bit tight. I have some Leupols low rings that I had used with this scope on another rifle and the bases are only £20ish however the CZ452 isn't drilled and tapped to accept bases. So here is the question, is it as simple as using a pillar drill and clamp, make sure everything is lined up and drill the appropriate holes and then tap new threads in?
I've got all the tools to do this and I'm 95% confident I can do it without messing it up but just wanted to ask if there was anything glaringly obvious I'd missed or if anyone has done similar or would they just recommend either of the two rings I've mentioned instead?
