      I have just found a set, cheap and nasty, well free actually, they came with a red dot a friend bought.
      I don't like them, and I'm not sure how sturdy they will be, but I'll give them a chance.
      And if I hate them I may get a set made, or if I can get some time on a mill somewhere I'll make them.
      It can't be any more expensive or time consuming than buying a set of Talley's and importing them :eek:

      Not sure how high these are, but they seem pretty low.

      I just bought a set of Leapers mounts, and they're nice for the money. They come in 2 piece, off-set, and about anyother style you need.

      Nor sure who make all those mounts, but they are available over here, either from Hawke or Deben.
      The lowest 30-mm ring for a CZ is .50" high.

      Leapers Scope Mount

      I resorted to silicone the last time I mounted my scope. Noticed today that the scope has moved a little bit. How do you think one of these would work? Definitely has more surface area, haven't measured for length yet but looks like it might work.

      From the link MOS posted: "I decided to try this mount from Leapers..."

      I found a few Leapers scope bases but they were not exactly like the one in his picture.

      One at Optics Planet: >> http://www.opticsplanet.net/leapers...th-integral-medium-profile-mount-rgpm2pa.html

      Some at Airgun Depot: >> http://www.airgundepot.com/onepi11mdomo.html

      ..and one at Pyramyd Air: >> http://www.pyramydair.com/s/a/Leapers_Accushot_1_Pc_Mount_w_1_Rings_High_11mm_Dovetail/636

      Had I not already ordered Rimfire Technologies scope base and new rings to fit it I would have given one of these a try.

      I ordered the first one from Optics Planet.

      I second the Simmons 3-9x32. http://www.opticsplanet.net/simmons-22-mag-3-9x32mm-rifle-scope-with-rings.html. I just put one on my 795 and it works really well. I used a Leapers mount to ensure that the scope does not move. http://www.opticsplanet.net/leapers...th-integral-medium-profile-mount-rgpm2pa.html

      Anyway we took it to the range last weekend and the gun/scope combo is a real tack driver. Once we got it sighted in, @ 25 yards it was pretty much hitting everything through the same hole, off of a rest.

      I recently purchased a Barska 1.25x4.5x26 Euro Scopeand a set of Leapers mount/rings

      First, the mount/rings...this is a 4" long solid base with 3 set screws in a medium profile...the machining is excellent, sliding onto and tightening easily and securely onto the 3/8 rails with about 1/2" clearance on each end of the receiver cover on my Henry Frontier H001T(M)...the rings have 4 set screws and are coated on the inside with Leapers version of "sticky tape" giving a rock solid mount...I have used these style rings before on a magnum air rifle and have been quite satisfied with them...a note...they are also meant for air rifles and have a set screw for a barrel block, this screw should be removed...screws are all hex heads and the appropriate hex keys are included, which brings me to my only complaint about these rings...they utilize diff size hex screws for the base and rings, needing two diff size hex keys, which however, are provided...these rings placed the scope, 1.5" above the bore and provided enough clearance for both this scope and another with a 32mm objective to clear the rear sites...at 13.95, this setup is a rock solid buy from OpticsPlanet(free shipping with scope)......

      ...now for the scope...this Barska is a 1.25x4.5x26 Euro design with a straight 30mm, all steel tube and is rated as shock/fog/water proof. It comes with the German 4A reticle, this reticle has a HEAVY duplex at the 3, 6 and 9 o'clock positions and a fine line at the center and 12 o'clock positions...the rear objective has a "fast focus" ring on the end and the power ring has a finger tab to facilitate adjustment...at 89.94, from OpticsPlanet(and free shipping with cheapy lens covers and Weaver style rings included), I believe this scope falls into the mid range of Barska's lineup...

      While I am not a "scope" guy, I have had opportunity to use a few scopes from the cheapest of the cheap to top of the line Weavers and Leupolds and find the glass on this scope to be surprisingly clear and bright, with no distortions on the edges thru it's power settings...the focus and POI remained the same through out as well...at lowest power, I could see the front site and before ever shooting, I adjusted the windage to co-witness with the front site, when I started punching holes in paper at 25yds, I was only a couple of clicks off and was quickly on in the windage dept...I like the ability to co-witness with the front site, since it kinda forces you to adopt a proper check weld or at least let ya know when you're are leaning...once I had the elevation set, I was shooting regular same hole shots, eventually putting 20 shot strings together into a single, raggedy edge hole about dime to nickel sized and tight enough prevent my trigger finger from entering...the turrets are finger adjustable, brass faced, with positive feeling clicks and the marks are clearly visible...I spent a good bit of time at twilight, sitting in the open and aiming into the DARK woods about 60-70yds. I could see quite plainly into those woods, being able to distinguish individual leaves, branches and vines...the heavy duplex 4A reticle was easily seen and helped me find and focus on the fineline center...this should make an excellent short to medium range hunting scope...this scope does have a 100yd fixed parallax and I did have some VERY minor parallax problems at short distance, maximum power views...a blink or two seemed to clear it up...

      The bottom line, I found this scope to be an excellent, value priced, mid-range, compact hunting scope and would not hesitate to recommend this scope to anyone for this purpose!!!!!!!

      madjack :cool:

      p.s. when I got home this evening, I beat, shook and threatened my "sleeping" camera...suddenly, the lens extended, the integral lens cover opened and it said..."hey, what day and time is it"...go figure...tomorrow, I should be able to get some pics of my setup and maybe even some pics of my targets/groups(...tell, Alec).................mj
