    I have a new custom rifle coming in that has a leupy scope and rings. I want to put a 5.5-22X50NPR1 scope with NF rings and a Picatinny rail. Does anyone know where I can find rings and base?

    Here's the spec's on rifle:

    Action: Model 70 Classic ( New Pre-64 )
    Krieger Barrel, 26" Fluted, #7 taper
    Borden Stock
    300 Weatherby

    That's a walk in the park. wwwbadgeroradance.com . They're really expensive but they're the best. But do a search I just bought aPicatinny rail for my Mod 70 classic and paid less teh $50 bucks and it works perfectly. Only problem is I can't remember who I bought it from.

    As Ironworker mentioned Badgers are very well respected as are Nightforce

    I also like the ones From Seekins Precision

    I had bought a 20 MOA 1 piece for my Model 70 from Ken Farrell.

    I am not real good at this Internet stuff, but I think I need to explain a lttle bit more of what I am trying to accomplish.

    I want to get the maximum amount of adjustment out of the 5.5-22X50 scope. I do not have a zero stop on this scope and would like to get a base that would allow me to adjust the scope near the bottom of its adjustment for a 100 yd. zero. By doing this, I think I will be able to use the maximum amount of adjustment to reach way out there. Also it should make it very easy to find 100yard zero again.

    It has been recommended to me by another smith to use a 40MOA base, but I am thinking I will need a cheek piece like Defensive Edge has to get the right adjustment for my eye with the scope sitting so high. I would also like to use NF rings because I want DE's new cosine and bubble mount. I believe it is made for NF Rings.

    I suppose I could buy a base and then figure out what I need after I have shot it, but I do not want to waste money on 2nd guessing. Maybe someone on here can tell me what I need to buy to make this work.

    My other option is to just send it to a smith and get it done that way but maybe I can just tote my rifle around and look at it for awhile before I ship it off again :)
