    advice on mounts / rail for new scope please

    Hoping that this is the correct section.

    I have got a new scope - a schmidt and bender 8x56 - and am looking to buy the mounts i need to set it up and am looking for a bit of advice.

    My rifle is a remington 700 and at the moment it has no mounts on it or a rail just the bare barrel with the screw holes.

    My question is what will i need to buy to mount the scope on the rifle and what is a good make of mount to buy. Also will i get away with medium mounts or will i require large ones?

    Have a word with

    He set up the s&b on my winchester mod 70 and did a cracking job. That was 3 years ago and following my initial zeroing, i haven't touched it since. He knows his stuff and good prices to boot!

    Hope that helps,

    You have purchased just about the easiest rifle to get mounts for, every gunshop worth their salt will have mounts in stock to fit this rifle.
    Go for steel mounts every time if you can. Leupold are one of the most common makes and good for the money as are Weaver and Hilver.
    Probably the most adaptable system will be to fit a picitinny rail allowing a mix and match aproach.

    One other piece of advice - get the lowest mounts you can.

    I would fit a one piece base from Ken Farrell

    and also buy the mounts from there as well.

    Excellent robust set up that will last .

    Yes they send to the UK and are also available through Brownells.
