MKII FV SR Scope Mount Recommendation?



Log in to see fewer ads
I just purchased the rifle and have a Boyds Tactical stock on the way. What height rings for a 40mm objective for proper clearance and cheek weld?

Medium UTG picatinny rings. Amazon has them for cheap. They do not move once tightened. I have Leupold rings on my CZ and honestly, other than looks, they perform the same job equally.

I run Weaver rings (Quad lock or 4 hole skeleton I believe) on most of my guns. Most of my scopes are 40 or 42mm, and I run medium rings on all of them.

As an engineer, I had trouble with tall, medium, etc. I like numbers.

On my new gun, I put low rings which measured 0.78” from mid rail to center of scope tube.

I think the Boyd will work.

I used Warne low rings to put the 50mm objective exactly where I wanted it. Just enough clearance for scope caps.

Beartooth cheek riser on the factory stock works well for me.

I have the same frustrations. Very few rings actually provide a dimension one can use to make meaningful calculations. Very low, low, medium or high are nothing more than arbitrary descriptors used in ads. Many scope bases are nearly as bad. Weaver does list some good information helping to raise/lower the scope height. i.e., the Weaver 24 two piece bases are used on my FV SR to lower my scope a few more mm.
I’ve found my spare ring and bases box is ever expanding yet still isn’t complete.

I have a Bushnell Elite 3200 4-12x40AO scope mounted on a heavy barrel MkII BTVLS with the OEM thumb hole stock replaced by a Boyd's Rimfire hunter.

The rings measure 0.375" from the top of the two-piece Weaver bases to the inside bottom of the rings where the scope sits. The bell measures 2.07" in diameter and it clears the barrel by about 1/8". I believe these rings were listed as "medium".

Rings on a .22 is not that hard

The purpose of the rings is to lock down the scope at a height to keep the bell off the barrel. The recoil of a .22 relative to the recoil of a .308 or higher caliber is nominal. You dont need $50 rings to secure a scope on a .22. Get some UTGs and tighten snug but not tight if just using an allen wrench. If you have or can borrow a torque wrench, tighten to spec and you will be fine.

3/4” rings. Measured from seam (mid scope tube) to top of rail is perfect height for me with my new Boyd’s Varmint Pro. They were labeled as “low”.
