I was going to put the rings and bases on today and lapp the rings so I would be ready to mount scope. The nightforce rear bases do not fit but the fronts fit the gun in front and rear. I need suggestions as I still want to use my nightforce rings. What should I do about bases? Order onother pair and use both fronts?
I would replace the bases with another set/brand !!!!
Talk to Nightforce about your problem and allow them a chance to make it right.
If that does not get results then go somewhere else.
Dont mix and match bases or rings because no good can come of it,(They are machined
together so they are strait with each other.I made this mistake a long time and the
mismatched rings and bases used up all of the turrent adjustments in the scope.
If port access is not an issue a one piece base is better.
