    I will have my new Cooper model 22 in a Varminter 260rem this month. I will be mounting a 50mm nightforce on top. I want to get a picatinny 20moa canted rail. Does anyone know if the action holes would line up with any other popular rifles say any of the big three ''remington''. Or will I have to order a blank and have a gunsmith drill the rail to cooper specs?

    THANK YOU. Did you bed yours with apoxy? it looks to set higher than the Warne rail. Before I got your reply,I purchesed a rail from OPTICS PLANET, I believe it is made by Warne the profile looks to set lower, but the Ferrell does look sharp and it is 15$ cheeper.

    No I didnt epoxy it. I set it up with a dial guage and It didnt matter which screws I tighened or loosened or in which order I couldnt get any movement at all not even a 1/10 of one thou.A tribute to both cooper and farrel.IIRC farrel do a low profile but Im not suer about that model.

    Yawn, turns out that Optics Planet is out of stock. The rail you have does it have a flat spot on top with no rails in the middle? I like the way that looks. would not having full rails limit my mounting options?:rolleyes:

    USO looks great except the price is 45$ more.

    Does it interfere with ejection of cartridge?
