I want to get a 1 piece rail and am looking at the EGW bases. I was set on getting Burris Zee rings to go with it but noticed that they are for a Weaver rail and the base is a Picatinny type. This makes me nervous on my scope possibly moving because of the differences between the two. Is anyone running a combination like this? I was trying to get away from having to lap the rings but if I go with a different brand what is recommended?
Thanks for the help
I have a Burris Zee rings (if you get the one with inserts, no lapping is required) and EGW picatinny rail on my .270 AI.
... and a Burris tactical on picatinny on my wife's AR
No problem whatsoever thus far.
