Thread: Nd 3x50

    Nd 3x50

    I have recently acquired one of these and want to be able to mount it on top of a scope, the only trouble is the fitting that came with it will not fit under the saddle mount on my scopes. Is there an alternative that will sort this problem for me?

    Thats right but myscope sits in a saddle mount, it's a blaser, and the supplied fixing attachment will not fit between the scope body and saddle mount. I'm sure that somebody said they had found some alternative mounts but I can't find the post.

    I (think I) had a similar problem with my IOR - it wouldn't fit in a regular saddlemount. The options were to go for high rings/risers for the saddlemount or to use a MAK mount. I did the latter, using a Picatinny rail. It worked well, but having sold the IOR and bought a Zeiss I am now back to using a regular saddlemount. I have just sold the MAK mount, but here's a picture of it:



    I then used Leupold Quick Release (QRW) mounts on top, which gave me plenty of clearance.

    Hope this helps.

    Another thought - would one of the Clulite mounts work (http://clulite.cluson.co.uk/led-gun-...-gun-lite.html)

    JayB,

    An alternative option is to mount a small piece of picatinny rail on the fore-end QD stud (assuming you have one fitted) - Weaver do one - and then mount the ND using a standard (although I find the offset one better) 25mm mount. This works pretty well. I guess you could mount a normal picatinny rail by more conventional means too.

    I have just been on the phone to Tartinjock and it looks like good old TJ has got just the thing kicking about amongst his kit somewhere

    Email sent with a pic . Let me know.
    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position
