Re: Beefing up XP scope base?
You can never have to much scope mounting, but you can have not enough.
On small light recoiling cartriges the factory mounting will be fine. But if you have a hard kicking
round and /or hang a heavy scope on it you may have problems. so it is best to go ahead and have bigger and more holes drilled and tapped while it is being built.
I would also recomend a Picatinny rail from Near mfg so if you need to you could install more
than two ring sets. (I have one pistol that I had to install 4 rings to keep it from shearing the
rings from the bases).
Better safe than sorry.
