Is there a such thing as a low profile picitinny rail?
I have a Savage 10 heavy barrel in 6mm Creedmore. I just removed my VX5 HD 3-15x56 with TPS Rings mounted on the cheap Talley 2 piece bases. Scope bell sat about 1/16 inch above barrel. Life was good.
Removed scope and went to put on Mark 5HD 5-25x56 with Seekins rings. Of course Seekins rings with the slots only fit 1913 style bases so the Warne and Weaver slots are too narrow. Soooo, I mounted scope on a Weaver style 20 MOA Pic rail and it sits over a half inch above barrel. That’s using Seekins lowest ring option for the 35mm which are mediums at .97. I need to get this scope much lower. I’ve searched.
Are there any 2 piece bases that have the Mil Spec 1913 size slots or a very low profile pic rail out there?? Doesn’t have to be 20 MOA or anything. Zero is fine.
Thanks.

You are great! I somehow passed this on Nightforce website too. Thank you!
Welcome, no trouble at all Sir! Several other websites list these particular Savage bases as ‘discontinued’ so that may be why they may not have been on the Nightforce web-page? 😬
