The "trough" in the D loading ejector (loading tray) is the same width from front to back. On the E version, the width of the trough is progressively narrower toward the front, which raises the nose...

The original setup and one that still works well is a long scope such as a Unertl, Lyman, Fecker or Litschert. A receiver mounted scope complicates matters. You need a base/ring combo that doesn't...

Not usually a good idea on 513 and 44 ( also applies to the 52 if before B model and no one has added an action screw on tang). They only have one action screw, so no way to free float the barrel. ...

MIcromotion triggers don't fit in the B model. If pulling the trigger back HARD doesn't allow the bolt to be inserted, something is amiss in the trigger, bolt or safety slide -- perhaps wear.

Yes. Rimfires have the same hole spacing as CF 40X and 700 rifles, so the 2 pcs. fit them all. For 1 pc. base, you need the one for a 700 short action.
