    Might be something to do with the 40mm tube, no optitlocks?

    There is a bit of a story to the new scope of Beeman's. We took it out to sight it in yesterday and after about 7 shots the scope/mounts/rail fell off, much to our surprise. Back to Beeman's and we reattached the scope as we thought the screws securing the mounts to the rail hadn't been tightened at the shop.
    Scope re attached we set off to check it out again, first shot the scope/ rail comes adrift again. This time we took the gear to re attach the scope so we put it back on again and fired a further 8 or so rounds getting the rifle sighted in. ( took out a 2 liter milk bottle at 400 meters so can't be to bad considering the weather we were shooting in.)
    In answer to Veitnamcam question I think Mathis is right, the mounts will fit the rail but not the Sako dovetail. Currently the rifle is back at the shop to get the rail and receiver drilled and Tapped so the rail will stay put. Not nice seeing an expensive scope landing on the deck of the truck, twice.

    What's it weigh? Very cool but that scope to barrel gap though..... could fly a Cessna through there.. surely there's something to get it lower I can't imagine it's very well balanced?

    Not sure but should be able to get enough dots ( elevation ) out to about 1100 meters, cool scope all you do is press the range finder( built in to scope) and a dot appears on your vertical crosshair along with hash marks for a 10 and 20 mph wind, the range is shown as is the remaining energy of your bullet at that range. You first need to program the load data into the scope via Bluetooth from the supplied app from Swarovski.

    Yes it does look out of place but surprisingly it comes up nice and balances out ok, Beeman is going to talk to the supplier to see if it can come down a little but as there are limited mounts available to fit it that may be it. The weight is 1090 grams. Lucky it's attached to a Sako Carbon light.

    I hope your bouncy scope comes back glued tight this time. Not good having to catch it before it hits the ute deck..

    I'd be taking that back to the shop and asking for a rail for a sako, theres no need to drill and tap that nice action.

    Get one from Richard Near, NearMfg.com

    The dovetails on the mount are tapered to match the receiver, with a recoil lug at the back, same as optilocks.
    Plenty of info on NearMfg mounts here, and no need to drill and tap.
    Clown in the shop should know better.
