    A short action should be okay, your scope has the same mounting length as the VX5 (5.4 inches) on my 260, my front ring as almost as far back as it can go, but that is partly due to getting the correct eye relief. Not a lot of tube room between turrets and objective bell!

    Youre right. The VX6 can be a pain to mount.

    Im actually thinking blue rings might look better than stainless on the finnlight 2. So anyone have some lying around?

    Mate for a 30 mm tube scope of less than 50 mm lenses diameter if using sako optilock rings and bases you want extra lows.

    Yeh i would if i was going for the bases as well. My understanding is the one piece low is the same height as the extra low with the bases.
