    Sako rings for 34mm scope

    Hi all, Looking at upgrading to a ATACR 4-16x42 F1 on my Sako 75, what 34mm rings you guys using and height would fit for this scope?

    If ya hoping to get something decent through Beretta NZ ya fuked, I didn't want to use a rail on my 6-204 T3 ( because it looked friggen ugly ) & the only 34mm rings & bases they could supply were extra extra high, ugly useless & way over priced.
    I ended up getting some Leupy bases ( still higher than they need to be ) & leupy 34mm rings off KiwiGreg & they were better value & quite tidy.

    I'm not using em at the mo so could be keen on selling but not sure if T3 will fit a S75's ?

    From an engineering perspective the NEAR rail hands down. Lower and fits into the dovetails with an integral recoil lug. No drilling and tapping.

    I've had both.
