    Optilock 30mm higher two piece rings

    Hi, I need a set of 30mm higher optilock rings for Tikka or Sako (got a larger bell scope I want to mount on both rifles). The one piece low rings won't put the scope up high enough for the objective bell to clear the barrel.

    How big is the bell? A 50 mm will fit low mounts, ( at least they do on my rifles )

    56mm for the glass. I don't have the scope handy but a similar one has outside diameter of the bell at about 62mm.

    Yup that'll do it
    What about a rail to get it a little higher?

    Send it to Mark @ Waitaki Engineering he will drill and tap and fit a 20/10/0 moa rail
    There are many satisfied customers including myself.

    I prefer the Optilock system - less bits to come loose. But thanks for the ideas. I do have a rail on one rifle to bring the height up so that I can use low Optilocks.

    Dpt is now making a one piece mount in 30mm high with 20 Moa built in for tikka. A bit more expensive but rock solid.
