Miike 214, It seems that it is too far forward for a good eye relief on my scope. EGW sells the base for Win 52 for the Martini. However the hole for the base on the Martini are 3" forward than the 52 holes. Thus the rings on the scope won't let the scope come back for the eye relief that I need. What scope are you using? thanks

You need to use the two holes closest to action. I have a 40 power muller and have plenty of eye relief. Mike

One of the guys on this forum, Stu, sells a different mount that attaches to the threaded holes that normally go for the rear sight. He even sells them on eBay.

On several vintage target rifles I have used a Brownells rail or Weaver rail and mill, file or grind the rear underneath side that goes over the front of the receiver (whatever you have access to). Very rigid, good eye relief and $5-10. Only takes a few minutes. With a Weaver base you may have to drill one hole but great thing is if you do it right it is rock solid.

Litetrigger, do you have a MkIII? The longer front part of the action I think puts the d/t'ed target scope mount holes more forward than they may be on the shorter MkII? That would make the scope set more forward.
Im trying to figure this out too for my MkIII.

I got one of these with another MK II, I've been thinking of milling in a second set of holes slightly ahead of each existing hole but with a built in 20 moa cant for long-range shooting. Beautiful mount and lends itself to the modification without ruining it.

I have one on my H&R M12, no problem with movement. Also excellent repeatable zero when switching between peeps and scope.

Well that’s odd, I guess do a search for EGW, Winchester 52. They have several different flavors I’ve saved in my watch list.

I’m curious as well with a Mark II in my near future. Just mounted my 20 power Lyman All American on the H&R to test some ammo. From C/L of rear base hole to rear of base it measures 3.800
