I need some help, this Zeiss mounting problem is bugging me.
I want to use Burris Signature Zee rings.
I have a standard Howa SA aluminium picatiny rail. It measures 0.850" and my Burris rings will not fit,it needs to be 0.830"
I have two weaver steel bases I have checked on the weaver web site and they are the correct ones.
The longer S 36 is 0.830" the other S 35 is 0.820" The slot on the longer is 0.140" on the shorter 0.152"
Surely this is wrong they should be the same width and the slots should be the same.? Have two bases been mixed up and marked incorrectly/counterfit?
I have checked on Brownells and the standard picatiny/weaver rail should be 0.830" Before anybody posts I am aware of the differences between the two.
Please could any Howa or remmy 700 users who have either weaver bases or a one piece rail please measure them and post results
I am awaiting a reply from Weaver re the correct specs and measurements for the S35 and 36 bases
