    Hey guys,
    I need some input on weaver style bases for a rem 700 sa, burris signature z rings. The only one piece weaver style base I see is the ironsider. Did I read that weaver rings will fit a picatinny base, but picatinny rings will not fit a weaver base? Would the best thing in my situation be too buy a quality picatinny base or should I just go with the ironsider weaver base? What do you recommend?
    Thanks

    Weaver and Picatinny will fit each other - purists will argue it, but in reality, they are interchangeable.

    Warne makes the nicest Weaver bases... at 1/2 the price of the brand "L" bases.

    There must be something wrong with mine... cuz they fit on each other.

    It's amazing how many times theory and practice don't match.
