Which scope rail for a Rem Mod 7?

Want a rail for mounting a scope on a Rem Mod 7. What would you suggest? I do not know anything about the subject. Thanks for any and all input. My current 2 piece Leupy mounts puts the scope to far back. It hits the head from recoil every once in a while ... even when consciously allowing all the space I can. I think a rail will allow me to move the scope forward more. It is on a 7 mm SAUM.

    Remington XP 25 MOA 3 Hole - $25.99 : Evolution Gun Works , World Class Precision Parts

    This one should fit the 3 or 4 hole Model 7 receivers.

    If you want a 4 hole rail, this one should work

    +1 for the EGW, and try and make a conscious effort to hold your head square to the scope. If you tip your head in at all, you will get smacked. That is something I have to think about every once in awhile.

    I believe that there is a long list of us who will not buy another EGW. That list is down in the optics section of the forum.

    What were the complaints? I have had nothing but good things to say about mine!

    If you donít mind putting out some bucks for a quality scope base check out Near Manufacturing or Seekins. If weight is an issue the Seekins bases are lighter. Both build excellent rails.
