    Ruger No1 eye relief problem sorted with Conetrol

    Some of you may remember some of my posts relating to a Ruger No1 that I bought a while ago.
    For those of you that don't, they are absolute buggers to get the correct eye relief on.
    Well after a little bit of money having been wasted I finally got lucky and found a kindly gentleman in the USA who was selling a brand new Conetrol set of mounts and rings for a Ruger No1 and was willing to sell them to me for £85-00 delivered.
    Well I took the chance and they arrived today. And look how fantastic they actually are.
    Not only have these mounts managed to move the scope back a significant amount but they have moved the scope as close to the barrel as is possible.
    I have made up a preliminary batch of rounds and will zero in the next few days.
    The next questions is should I fit a mod? Will it ruin the look of the rifle? and if I do fit one who makes the smallest and lightest mod out there?

    Nice G - and they came really quickly. Since you've got your cheekpiece on, you may as well go for the mod as well - if lots of money then Lawrence, if not ATEC CMM or Maxim - what calibre is this again?

    Conetrol are a nice product and nice to see them still about.

    BUT - you've not fitted a 30mm tube 56mm plus objective scope in the range 15-35x with 343 stage illumination, ballistic ranging turrets and a cammo paint job..... not using it for deer stalking then?

    IMHO fitting a moderator will ruin the balance of your rifle not to mention what it will do for the looks.

    Ps: This is a good example of how important it can be to give as much thought to a scope’s dimensional properties as image quality if wishing to achieve ideal eye relief.

    Yes I know, but after having used a mod for so long, it seems bloody loud.
    Does nobody produce a really small mod that could dim it just a bit? I'm not looking for a full blown mod just something to help with a small reduction.

    I also apologise profusely for not fitting the latest Rangefindingsupermegawoppercanseeafliesdickat1000y ds scope. The main reason being that the scope would be far too long having fitted all that writing onto it. Might help sorting eye relief though

    If that’s a reference to my comment re choice of scope its been very misread! I was in fact alluding to long-tube scopes of sensible magnification and objective diameter that might now be considered “vintage”.

    That's what ear defenders are for .

    As for scopes well the newer types all seem to have gone for short tubes. probably following the short action fad . It's not only on the Ruger No1 that eye relief becomes a problem with these modern short body tubed scopes. yet again it just shows that new is not always better.
