Need advice on installing Sako Optilok Mounts....

Posted 07 October 2006 20:36
My buddie brought over his new sako 75. We were going to put on the mounts. We realize how the taper works. The confusing thing to me is I would think you'd want to push the mounts up to where they get snug on the taper and then set them. Yet the directions say the front mount should be mounted in line with the front of the ejection port. Should we follow directions or slide them further forward to snug on the taper??? (Imagine a guy not wanting to follow directions!)
