Re: Scope Mounting on Win M70 EW
I have a Win M70 with a Kreiger Palma barrel and a Leupold 6.5-20x56 VX3L (with the half moon cut out underneath). So, it's probably the same clearance as a 50mm.
It's mounted on an EGW 20 MOA picatinny rail using Burris XTR Rings (Med Ht). I've heard others indicate that they prefer to pay extra for the Nightforce rail. I have both and haven't had problems with either.
I use the low rings with my 40mm objective.
