    Zeiss Duralyt 3-12 x 50. What height optilock rings?????

    Hi,

    I am after some Optilock 30mm Extra Low rings, preferred in blued but would consider stainless.

    I will also post this in WANTED section, but the reason I am asking in general is, has anyone else used Extra Low rings for a Zeiss Duralyt 3-12 x 50 on a Tikka T3??? I want the scope to be as low to the barrel as possible.

    Please PM me if you have any Optilock 30mm Extra Low rings.

    Cheers

    My Duralyts are both in extra low Optilocks.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    I have mine in low and have a small amount of clearance, I wanted the extra low but heard on a low mag you see the mod while looking into the scope

    Just a thought, since barrels used to have a dovetail cut for the rear sight,could a relief be made to allow a low scope mounting?

    I think you'd have to weigh up the risks and benefits. Taking a perfectly good shooter and grinding the barrel isn't without a chance.
    Conversely, what are you really gaining by having the scope 1/4" (or less) closer to the bore especially with the cheek positions of most modern stalking rifles?
