Scope ring height for Brno



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi,

I want to mount a Leupold VX2 2-7x33 scope to a Brno 2. I want it to clear the rear sight. I was planning on getting a set of Warne Maxima 16mm rings. Do I need Medium or High rings? Any experience?

The rings you need will be determined by the height your eye is with respect to the mounting grooves and the position your head is normally in when shooting.
No point in having low rings if it then becomes necessary to scrunch your neck to get down on the sight.
Sometimes a high mount can be beneficial - depends entirely on your body build.

Bolt handle clearance will be an issue, you would need pretty tall rings. You might consider a 2-7x28 instead.

I can't necessarily help you out with that exact scope or rings, but I can measure the scope and rings I have on my Model 2 this evening and relay that to you for reference.

I have a fixed 4x on my M2...it's a house brand Japanese made scope, I believe with a 32mm objective, mounted in BRNO (hilver?) rings. The rear sight ramp is still in place and I could get the scope to barely clear. If you remove the rear ramp, you shouldn't have any issues mounting a scope

I'll follow up with measurements and pictures this evening or tomorrow am.

That's it in a nut shell and the design of the stock to get a good off hand cheek weld. Lower is NOT better for Off Hand shooting....IMO. Loooong story short.

Maybe I'll shoot it with irons first and see how it goes.

Any experience with Warne MAXIMA rings?

The Warne and also the Burris (which I like better) 16mm Mediums are already high (the Highs are REALLY high) and will work nicely with the Leupold VX-2 2-7x33. I have four Brno Model 1s and two have Warne rings and two have the Burris rings and all have a Leupold VX-2 3-9x33 EFR scope. No issues with sight or bolt clearance.
