Mark V Picatinny Base

Who makes a picatinny type base for a Mark V Weatherby magnum action? I have a 36x Scope with Weaver type rings that I move back and forth from several rifles for range work then switch to my hunting scopes after I am happy with a load. I have rails on all of my other rifles and thought what the heck, I might as well put one on the 270 Weatherby Magnum. So far looking on-line at catalogs I cannot find anything other than the 2 piece Weaver style and I would think that the ring spacing would be off so I couldn't switch without loosening up at least one of the rings each time. What is the best way for me to go? Thanks. Tom

A long action remington rail fits them, just make sure the rail doesn't have a recoil shoulder on it.

For a perfect fit to a Mark V Wby action take a look at Richard Nears bases.

Not cheap, but second to none for a Weatherby.

Jim, I am not sure what a recoil lug on a base is? Are they common? Tom

Re: Mark V Picatinny Base

A recoil lug is a great thing with a wby magnums recoil. It is a protrusion off the bottom of the base that registers against the action port to stop any movement of the base durring recoil. The 700 Rem has a different port size so the recoil lug is located in a different location. Near will make you a base with or with out a recoil lug.
