    Default I need a smith in ANC

    I need a smith in Anchorage who can help me raise a Ziess Scope on a rifle that uses "Dove Tail" style base rather than the typical ring base.

    You need a new set of rings. Either that or drill and tap the flat tops of the receiver bridges for weaver bases and use weaver rings. I could do the drill and tap for you although it would likely ruin any resale value your rifle has and I would only recommend it as a last resort. If I were you I would start looking on eBay and GB for a set of higher rings. Any shimming you may do to make your current rings work will be either hoaky or if well done, very expensive.
