Have got myself a set of bases too fit the rifle. Question is where does the recoil pin on the front base locate into? Or is it not needed? Do you remove it? Any pics of your rifles wud be very good too look at.

Punch it out and then push the base right forward on the front rail. It can't shift from there, so no need for the pin. I have them set up this way now on my M65 after having problems with the base overhanging the chamber because of the pin. Works fine.

what he said!.... knock the pin out. at least then you can sort your eye relief properly. optilocks are good but not the best idea, you should get an egw picatinny rail from midway uk and then you can use any weaver type mounts and alter them according to eye relief and it also gives you the option of night vision if you want go that way.
