    Set of 1" rings and bases for Tikka T3

    Fellas

    After a set of rings and bases for a Zeiss 3-15x42 1" tube to go on a Tikka T3.

    Currently mounted with standard Weaver bases and cheap Sun Optics low rings (SM112). Position of scope is perfect.

    Height from top of action to bottom of tube is currently 14.5mm / 0.57". I can go 3.5mm / 0.14" lower and maintain acceptable clearance to barrel.

    The current rings and bases don't give me much confidence and I would like some integrated one piece rings and base preferably. Opti-locks for the Tikka considered at a sensible used price. Must be overall low size, no higher than the measurement above.

    I'm allergic to the hardcore tactical one piece CNC wizzo mounts at $400 +++, not necessary thanks.

    Who's got what that they no longer need?

    Cheers

    I've got a set of 1" talleys, low I believe.
    PM if interested, and I'll dig them out to confirm size.

    I have a set of Optilocks, 1 inch, blued, very good condition including inserts, the one-piece version that fit directly to dovetail.
    $120 posted on, happy for you to send them back for a refund if they don't suit.

    I’ve got some one inch blue optiloks if you think they’d work? I’ve got 30’s on a sako with 50mm objective so should be ok as they’re the same centre measurement

    I did indeed get the Talley low.

    This was the perfect height for me with the 42mm objective, due to the DPT chassis and where my eye lines up, but I reckon you might be able to get a 50mm objective on them too.

    I'll be back in a bit and I'll take a photo and measure it if that helps @Gibo.
