Scope base measurement question
Need a measurment from a BO and a NF 1 piece base (20 MOA) from anyone able. I need to know the hight from the top of the crosslots, the very top the rings set on to the point where the top of the reciever contacts... This measurement must be on the frontend of the base and not the rearend of it.
I've got a set of Ultra High (AR15) MKIV rings and need a base that measures .250" thick or better to get the NF 5.5-22x56 to clear the barrel block on the new 30.
My brothers 2 piece NF base measure .300" tall and just wanted to make sure the 1 piece up front did too, .300" thick would be even better than .250". I know the Ken Farrell base is .400" tall and would work perfect, I just want one with a recoil lug on it and the NF is what I'm looking at for this right now.
What's the spacing specs for the cross slots on the Weaver style bases like the BO and NF use vs. the what Ken Farrell uses?
My dads Farrell base has .400" spacing and square cut slots for his 700LA.
Thanks a bunch in advance. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
