    Sako Optilock Ring Mounts height question

    Fellas I am wondering what size "Ring mount" I would need for a 1 inch scope & 50mm Objective ... Would low fit? I'm fairly sure the medium would but want it as low as possible on a T3 Superlight?

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Low don't allow a 50mm objective to fit

    Mediums allow a good fit

    My son has a Swaro Z5 5-25 x 52 on his Sako 85 300WSM.

    We have used one peice ring mounts, with ample clearance for the objective end.
    One piece ring mounts come in one height, from the Sako chart on the back of the packet, they will work for objective diameters
    48-56 mm, depending on barrel profile.

    Two piece rings and bases offer a whole heap more options.
    Google " optilock ring chart " and you'll see the charts under
    " images "

    Thought I'd jump on this thread with a variation of the original question for anyone who can help - have a Zeiss HD5 3-15x42 and need a pair of optilocks to mount on a finnlight - will low rings fit?

    Yeah As Matagouri said, they will be fine. The Rifle I am buying has a 40mm objective already installed on em with plenty of room.

    This should help.....the rings mounts are one piece and come in one height only, refer to the top part of the chart.

    The mount rings for mount bases, have more options for height,and different mount configurations for different length actions.

    Tight fit but works.

    Thanks to all who helped out.

    The scope is long enough to clear the largest diameter of the barrel so I imagine a shorter scope may not fit.
