    Weaver - Picatinny rails ?

    Can someone explain the difference between Weaver and Picatinny rails ?
    Some rings fit on both and some only seem to fit on Weaver .
    I have some Burris Signature Zee rings and I'm not sure what base they will fit ?
    Anyone know .

    The slots are different widths, about 25 thou from memory.
    Picatinny is bigger
    Generally - Picatinny won’t fit Weaver, but Weaver will fit Picatinny.

    Thanks guys , problem solved .
    It's just that I have bought a Picatinny style mount for my Blaser and was hoping to use a set of Burris rings that I already have , when alarm bells started going off in my memory banks about the differences between different manufactures .
    I'm confident now that my rings will fit when I receive the base .
