Re: Can someone look at these pics and tell me what base/rings I need?
I am trying to figure out this. How much height does a picatinny rail add? I am going to go with a Leupold MK4 rail, and MK4 rings. I am trying to figure out if I can get by with medium. I have to order these so if I order wrong I'll be sitting on my hands. So, the Leupold medium rings are .84". The objective lens is 50MM, and half of that is .984". So I am .14" too short. what is the standard height added by the picatinny rail? If the height is more than .14" I should be ok right?
Will my barrel taper also help me out in this situation? I know this stuff has been beaten to death here, but I still need to figure it out.
