    Yes but Riflecraft will have your arm off !
    See if any one has 30mm rings for sale. I have 30mm but a 1" scope and inserts

    I've just been down this road.

    The short answer is yes, you can just buy the rings and 'feet', leaving the bases on the rifle.

    However, it is neither cheap (c250 for feet and rings) nor straightfoward. You will need to find out exactly which feet you need - they vary depending on the make and model of rifle and the diameter of the objective bell of the scope.

    Email Alan Rhone ( or Paul Grannel at Sentry ( with the specs of your rifle and they will be able to tell you what bits you need.

    If you have the old (springloaded detent, lever with ball) system you might want to take this opportunity to upgrade to the rear base with the dovetail/lever. It is much stronger and secure that the former. Also less susceptible to getting fouled when the scope is removed.
