    In theory

    So my edge currently has a vx6 with 44mm objective

    Looking to go to a 50mm sightron s3

    Have 6 - 7mm of clearance from barrel

    Thinking 50 - 44 =6mm 2 =3mm lower 3mm higher so should have 3 - 4mm clearance.

    Am i correct?
    Dont have time to test fit instore unfortunately

    Cheers
    Shane

    Yep that's correct have done this several time swapping scopes around rifles it starts to do your head in. They both have the same tube size right?

    Only thing that might cause grief possibly is if the sightron has a longer parallel objective section or needs to be set more rearward to achieve correct eye relief ....I dont have a sightron to look at but you should be golden.

    If it's longer a canted rail will reduce clearance too as the scope is mounted at an angle to the barrel but once again won't make a huge difference.

    Also check the actual outside diameter of the scope instead of just the lense diameter. Could vary between manufacturers. A quick check on the factory websites should give the info.

    Yep, have been caught by that one before too. The objective measurement refers to the theoretical size of the lense, so some scopes have a chubby on and others are much more petite.
