Thread: QR Mounts

    QR Mounts

    Afternoon, All.

    I intend to swap between NV and a day scope on my rifle and have already fitted a picatinny rail and Drone Pro successfully. Now I'm after advice re. the mounts for the day scope. It's a S&B 8X56 30mm tube and I'd like to use QR mounts that hold zero!

    What are my options?

    Many thanks for your thoughts,

    Dom

    I've had good results with Leupold QR mounts on my Photon. With the scope you have you'd be fine getting back to zero or at least very close so it wouldn't make a difference at the ranges likely to shoot with a fixed 8x scope

    Great. Thanks for that. I'll look at Leupold.

    another vote for the leupold qr , i have them on my day scope for the hmr and they are great quality and when funds permit i will get the 30m for the photon and replace the current ones on it.

    That's good to know. I plan to put the S&B on my CZ HMR, when the DP's on the other gun. What height do I need, please?

    I have medium ones on a DIP picatinny rail and the photon only just squeezes on but the DIP rail is a very low profile, about 5-6mm higher than the dovetail.

    edit it's on a CZ452 HMR

    The S&B has a 56mm objective lens and is going on a CZ452 HMR. The rail I've fitted is also low profile and fits very neatly onto the dovetail, but 56mm is a big lens...

    The photon is a 50mm lens but it's the body of the unit that is close so I'd expect medium would be OK if not the high would be fine but maybe not as low as you'd like.

    I might try medium, in that case.

    I have Warne QR and Leupold QRW rings in 30mm tube size, but the largest scope I run in medium height is 44mm.
    For 56mm, I think you will need high rings.

    1" Super Low: .55"
    1" Low: .65"
    1" Medium: .77"
    1" High: .9"

    30mm Low: .65"
    30mm Medium: .77"
    30mm High: .9"
