Seeing as Brithunter's account is suspended, I think this question may be a bit of a long shot, but does anyone out there know if the action profile on the BSA Mod E (factory sporterised/reworked P14) was cut to match the profile of the Winchester Mod 70? I plan to rescope my Mod E in the next couple of weeks, but suspect the body tube of the new scope will be too short for the BSA'a long action and will necessitate using a reach-back mount on the front base. It's got Parker Hale bases and rings on it at the moment but I strongly suspect that there's no such thing as a reach-back mount to fit PH bases. I have a spare set of Weaver bases from a Win Mod 70 and a suitable set of rings is available from Optics Warehouse. I just want to know if the Mod 70 bases will fit before I remove the current set up, only to find the Weaver bases unsuitable.
