Wanted: 30mm Optilocks for Sako 75


Well-Known Member
Hi, just treated myself to a Zeiss Diavari 6-24x56 scope, looking a set of 30mm rings to suit a Sako 75, currently has a zeiss HD5 4-24 x50 scope on it in optilock mounts. looking a set of mounts to suit the 30mm tube56 objective.
any advice or anyone with suitable they are considering selling?
I'd start with a look at the current mounts - would they work? If not, what height are they, and how much extra height do you need?
OK - my Zeiss 6-25x56 is on a SAKO 85 .223 with heavy barrel, and it's in medium rings. This leaves 3-4mm between the objective Butler Creek and the barrel. I can't remember doing it, but imagine I would have tried low rings and found they didn't work.
I'd therefore say it seems likely that medium rings will certainly work, but if you're keen to chase the lowest fit possible then with a standard-profile barrel and/or without Butler Creek you might get away with low rings.

I have to say there's no problem with cheek-weld and medium mounts on my rifle, at least, with the factory laminate stock.
