That and the Optilocks don't mar the scope.
Um no my friend. There are many companies that do ringmounts for both sakos and tikkas. There needs to be a distinction here between RINGMOUNTS AND RINGS AND BASES! you should be utilizing the integrated rail if possible. I have warne 30mm on my tikka 595, warne 1" on my sako 75 and stock tikka factory rings on my 223 tikka 595. The problem with the optilocks is there mediums are too low, there real expensive and the screws are soft so they strip out all too ofter. Call neer mfg in canada and ask him what the deal is with the optilocks! But if you can stay away from leupold on the tikkas and sakos and stick with ringmounts if you can.
