    optilocks for a 56mm scope

    Could someone please advise on the minimum height I can get away with , I'm fitting a docter 8x56 to my 85 hunter ( slimmer profile barrel) , its 30mm tube and the outside diameter is a little over 60mm , can I get away with meduims. Or will I need the high optilocks , thanks

    According to their chart 'low' rings should be ok. I have low for my 50mm obj scope and there is a little room to spare....

    Depends on your scope position. If you need the eyepiece or power ring to clear the base you might need higher rings. It happened to me and I ended up having to buy another set of higher rings to be able to mount the scope more forward.

    Low rings will be fine. I had a zeiss 56 objective scope with outside diameter of 62mm on a sako 85 varmint on low optilocks.

    That's a relief - I've just speculatively added a set of S/H lows to a private sale thinking they should fit. Now, does anyone have Picatinny bases to go with them?

    If you're buying optilocks they're not pica but proprietary bases, recoil stud on rear and tapered on the front.

    low should be ok with that barrel profile and the ring/base.
    If you have the rarer one piece "ring mount" and they'll be mighty tight.
