    I have a sportorized 1903a3 that I just put a Bushnell 3200 10x40 on. When bore sighted I only have a couple of rounds of Left windage adjustment left. Both the front and back bases are tapped and screwed in place. Does anyone know of a base system that will allow for windage adjustment without having to have the action retapped or is there some other way to adjust the bases? I haven't had a chance to shoot the gun yet and I'm hoping its not as bad as it appears, but with my luck it will probably be worse.

    Thanks

    Leupold or Burris both have adjustable rear base setups.

    Thanks for the information. I looked at the Leupold bases at the local Gander Mountain but they did not have on that would work on the a3. After reading you post I dug a little deeper and found them at cabelas and midway. Thanks
