Re: newbie help

I grinded my front screw down now everything works seems to work good. I am looking to get my scope now. I want a nightforce nsx 3.5x15x50 and i am considering getting the nightforce direct mount system. Has anyone had any experience with this.

Re: newbie help

Glad you got it straightened out.

Not sure about your particular action/base combo, but you should be aware that when you mount your bases sometimes the mounting screws can be a little long and lock up the bolt as well. Hate to see you back in that boat......and yes I've been there and done that too

Re: newbie help

Thanks winmagman I will definately check that when I install my bases. I can use all the help I can get especially since this is my first custom. I have been reading here and a few other sites for a while and just now decided to start posting since everything is coming together now. So has anyone had any experiance with the nightforce direct mounts. Also what size rings do I need for a 50mm scope.
