Thread: scope mount/base and receiver details

    scope mount/base and receiver details

    I have googled till the cows come home but cant find anything definitive

    does anyone know of or have a list of the various receiver dimensions for scope mounts/bases and various rifles?
    most of them seem to have a specific radius to the tubular receiver and a specific bolt pattern.

    Thought it might be useful to work up a resource/database that says what bases are interchangeable as well as being able to have custom ones made up

    anyone?

    There is a book with all (most) popular rifle actions dimensions, although I cannot recall the name of it.

    I've got a copy of one - FRANK DE HAAS - "BOLT ACTION RIFLES".

    Frank has long departed, so this tome only covers actions up to the Tikka M55/M65 era.

    The book has been updated, but I doubt if the technical measurements of more modern actions such as the Sako 75 are in the latest edition (which is 2003 I believe).
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.
