Rings for an 802 Mossberg.. not much space.



Log in to see fewer ads
I'm having a scope ring headache on the 802 because there is so little dovetail before and after the ejection port. (An eye relief issue because there is so little space to locate the turret section of the scope... can not move scope forward or back very much at all.)

Is it true that a one-piece (long base with 2 rings) would block the ejection port?

I am looking at cantilever/offset options.

Anyone have some favs / recommendations?

The 640 series in .22 mag has the same problem. Here is what I used on mine ITEM: 274M long offset rings, matte black pair: $38 @ Havlinsales.com

This is what they look like, and they work very well. Made in USA. They can be mounted in either direction as it suits the installation needs. Havlin's is the best.

THANKS! I found that and you'd think it would be perfect. The mounting foot is 1.65" but I have only 1.25" of dovetail. Ick.

RB22 scope puzzel SOLVED (Mossy 802 - ditto)

(( Put solution and pics in new post in Taurus/Rossi section. ))

Took a while but I found a scope config that I like.
(That is the short version. Now I have a sack of parts to return to Zon and Wally's.)

My solution:
BSA 2-7x32 AO Compact "Sweet 22" scope. (under $60, Wally's etc.)

Leupold Rifleman Detachable See-Thru High Rings ($12 at Wally's). Yea!
These rings are narrow so they did not have a big foot print and so they have some location options. And since they are Leupold's I was not worried about lots of torque to hold in place.

AND I can still see iron sights! Big Yea!
