Need Help Finding a Rail Base

I am having a hard time finding a base for this action. I need a 20 or so MOA rail for my new 6mmbr build. The rifle was an early Weatherby Vanguard Deluxe. Short action with the Sako type bolt release on the left side of the action. Doen't seem to be like the Howa. Here are the C/L measurements from rear forward on the mounting screws.

1~2 = .860"

1~3 = 4.765"

1~4 = 5.365"

Any help or direction would be appreciated.

Jeff

EGW makes rails for the Mark V, but I don't know if it would fit your rifle.

Broz- I'd give EGW and Ken Ferrel a call. I think nightforce, egw, and Holland make bases you can drill your own hole in as well if nothing at all turns up. I think you'll have a rough time finding the info you need on the net unless someone chimes in that's been down the road you heading.

Re: Need Help Finding a Rail Base

Thanks guys, Not crazy about the EGW's. Last one I got was not the best. But , I will give Ken Ferrell a call. I bought one Ken Ferrell for it. It is a SA rem and does not fit. So like stated above. I need someone that has been here or a good tech on the phone. Also the non drilled base is an option too.

Thanks!

Jeff

Jeff- What was wrong w/ your EGW's ? I just picked one up for a rem LA and was wondering what you noted so I can check mine.

Broz,
You might try to get in touch with Near Mfg. I have two of his rails and they are great. One is for a Sako the other for a remington. Great Guy. I know that he makes some for Weatherbys.

Yes , Richards bases are TOP NOTCH!! Machining is the best and nice recoil lug and things match up to the rifle receiver too. Not sure if he makes a vanguard one or not but I could check.
