Got it all mounted up. Between the already low cheek weld and the high base i decided to build a adjustable cheek rest. hopefully i get some time tomorrow to shoot it

Looks interesting, wonder how it would hold up to the recoil of a large braked rifle?

Re: I got my Variable Gantry Mount today!!

So would this mount be able to be zeroed on , let say 20 MOA and then for a long shot adjusted up to 40 moa. Then after the shot return it to the origional 20 moa and it will hold origional zero?? That is how I would use it and if it would do this it would be great. But I have doubts.

The height is a problem, might be better suited for an AR type rifle.

Re: I got my Variable Gantry Mount today!!

I would think that a anti cant level would be a critical with the mount being that high!!!
