    Hey Guys.

    I need a favor. I am out of town at the moment and am trying to find a picatinny base that matches the specs of a DPMS LR-308 flat top picatinny rail. I use a Larue Quick Detach scope mount on all of my rifles and having the same size picatinny rail on each rifle allows me to quickly switch optics between rifles without needing to adjust the levers. I am hoping to buy a picatinny base for a new rifle, but have gone down this road before and want to be sure its pretty darn close to the DPMS picatinny. Since I obviously cant change the DPMS picatinny, I have to use that as my standard.
    I assume the only measurement I need is the thickness of each picatinny and perhaps the width? I appreciate the help fellas.
