Scope rings for 34mm barrel, 56mm objective lens, Anschutz 11mm dovetail base



Log in to see fewer ads
I have an Anschutz 2013 rifle for benchrest.

I am thinking of buying the March 8-80x 56mm scope with a 34mm diameter barrel, but need rings.

I need to fit this scope on the Anschutz 11mm dovetail base.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.

Contact Kelbly's and they can help you select the best height, etc.

Excellent rings and service!

I'm sure you mean a 34mm scope tube. At first I thought you were referring to a 34mm rifle barrel, then read your post re the March scope. I believe Talley makes scope rings for a 34mm tube and fitting an 11mm receiver rail (if that's what your 2013 has). With a 56mm objective, High rings would be the minimum I believe, maybe Extra Highs. Try Europtic.

Thank you 1813Benny and Doug,

Thank you for your quick and kind responses.

I asked Kelbly, and Ian Kelbly said that their 34mm rings should be fine with a 56mm objective lens on the March scope.

They are out of stock now, but should get them in about 3 weeks.

+1 on Kelbly's. I have a them on my 1907 and my 1761 and clearance is fine with a 56mm objective. Excellent fit, finish, and great CS. Also recommended by ANA.

If Kelbly's is OOS call ANA as they stock them, and will sell to you direct.

It appears that this scope has now been discontinued. (source:Opticsplanet)

I guess I'm an old timer and don't understand the appeal of mega scopes.
I've had higher power scopes, but my best shooting was done with nothing more than a Leupold M8 12x ao target scope.
I briefly owned a Burris 8-32, and at 32, it was indicating my heartbeat too much.
Even with my Leupold 6.5-20 scopes, I usually liked to settle in around 17x. for .22, and might crank it up all the way for longer shots with a 17hmr.

Bigger tube means more light, but more importantly mor adjustment, and finer adjustment, mor room for stronger internals and less stress on them.

As for seeing my heat beat in the scope, my bp medicine solved that

As I get older, and my vision deteriorates more magnification and light is better for me. I can still shoot iron sights , but i cant see the holes at anything less than 14 x.

Heres a disgustingly huge mega scope

Thank you everyone for their replies.

After much thought, I have given up on the idea of mounting an 8-80x 34mm scope tube with a 56mm objective onto a BR 22 rifle.

I think part of a rifle's good looks and balance is part of the rifle's heritage.

An excellent decision!!! There are more than a few higher power 1" tube scopes that I'm sure would meet your shooting needs. I have a Bushnell Elite 4500 8-32x40 SF (1" tube) on my 1411. I'm not sure whether these are still available, but there are very good Leupolds, Sightrons, etc. that would work well. And they won't overwhelm your rifle.

Thanks Doug.

Your advice on this and other blogs are really well-thought out and very helpful.

Ian Kelbly, when discussing the 34mm rings, questioned the use of an 8-80x 56mm, 34mm scope tube on a 22LR shooting at 50 yards...............
I had to agree with him that it doesn't balance with the rifle.

I currently have a NF 15-55x 52mm on my 2013 rifle, so I'll just leave well enough alone. I thought I could upgrade the scope on this rifle and move the NF to another one.................
My 2013 is a long, heavy, and meaty rifle which I thought could carry a 34mm scope tube with a big objective with ease............
Upon careful thought, the scope will be too big.

You are probably also missing the appeal of all things TACTICAL!

I believe you would be hard-pressed to improve on the NF scope. I had one of those on my 1710D HB some years ago, and while a fabulous scope optically and mechanically, its size (and weight) just overwhelmed the rifle. I ended up trading it on a beautiful rifle and got $200 bucks besides. Still have that rifle -- a Bill Myers-build Hall RB-LP with a Benchmark 3-groove reverse-taper barrel, and Jewell trigger that shoots really tiny groups with Center-X. NO regrets!

Doug,
How is that Benchmark 3-groove barrel? How does it shoot? Are you able to discern a difference between barrel makers?

I ordered a Benchmark 3-groove straight contour 0.900" barrel from them about 3 months ago. Still waiting for the barrel. Will send it off to a gunsmith who will cut and chamber it with a Nevius reamer. Will order the Nevius reamer from JGS Precision. This barrel will be put to use on my 2013 rifle.

Dating myself, but I think of the big optics on the rifles that U.N.C.L.E. agents and foes were running around with.
