Re: Base and rings for a savage rifle

I noticed that NF is advertising a one piece base for Savage short action rifles. Has anyone had any experience with them on a model 12? Thanks

    I second the Nightforce hardware. I recently purchased a brand new model 111 in 7mm Rem Mag as mentioned by the OP. I put the one-piece NF base on it with the ultralight rings and they fit PERFECTLY. Yes, they are expensive, but IMHO, they are worth it. One less thing to worry about once I go shooting, as I know that I have a superior mounting platform for my rifle.

    I am sure I will have to use medium or high rings. The scope I am gonna put on that rifle is a 6x18x50mm. Would that setup you used for the 111 work on the model 12 I have coming?

    Not sure. Maybe someone else can chime in on the model 12. As far as ring height goes, I have the 1.125" rings and I am using a 56mm objective with a 20 MOA base.

    I recommend the EGW rail and the Burris Signature Z rings. Economical but very good solution.

    I have an EGW base on my model 16, with leupold mk4 rings. Same exact setup as i have on my m700LA. Would not use anything else.

    Thanks men, for all your suggestions and information. I went outside the box to try something even more different. I ordered a DNZ gamereaper one piece direct mount. I will post pictures and info on how the mounting works out.
