Thread: scope mounts

    Default scope mounts

    Looking for scope mount recommendations for a Win model 70. I have used dual dovetails, and like them, but they do not come in stainless. Every pair I used have rusted even when trying to oil them in the field. Iím looking for a premium product.

    Default scope mounts

    I have used weaver for 30 years.
    They have never let me down.
    I have never had one rust on me. I have hunted in severe weather conditions for days. No problems.

    Good Hunting,

    I am a life long fan of Weaver rings and mounts. But after using the one piece Talleys on my wifes Kimber I would chose them over the Weavers.

    WARNE! I'm suprised they have not been mentioned yet. They are very, very strong.

    Default scope mounts

    Warne and Talley are both very good. I prefer the Warne Maxima bases over the Talley bases because they seem to blend in with the Mod. 70 receiver. Both make quick detach rings if you want easy access to iron sights.

    Default keep your leupold mounts

    Keep your leupold mounts and send them to be refinished.

    ROBAR industried does NP3 coating.

    Other companies do teflon and other coatings as well.

    There is also nickel finishing.

    So dont give up on those superior leupold dual dovetails just for rust.

    If you want world class disconnect mounts leupold has QRW mounts and bases as well as leupold QR mounts and bases.

    Again, just have them refinished by ROBAR or another refinisher.

    Default stainless mounts

    All of the above are good products. My favorite are S&K. I like them first of all because they are tough, second because they are steel but still very light and third they do come in stainless...be for warned, the one thing they are not is cheap, esp. in stainless. All of my sheep rifles have either these or the Talley ultralights, initially used exclusively by Melvin Forbes/Ultra Light Arms.

    I switched two rifles over to Talley Lightweights this year, and they are my new favorites for rifles that lack iron sights.

    My .375 H&H has iron sights, so I wanted quick-detach mounts on this rifle. I went with the Warne Maximas. They are tough and, as advertised, they return to zero after removing the scope. The steel bases sit low enough that they don't block the iron sights.
