I have new TX! left hand 17hmr on the way. What is everyone using for scope mount? Any other accessories you all recommend out of the box? Going to be a woods gun for squirrel hunting.
As always looking forward to advice from this great group of rimfire shooters.

I used Weaver #61 (48504) bases & Hawke 22112 low rings to mount a Nikon a Nikon P3 3-9x40 EFR scope on mine, later replaced it with a Weaver Grand Slam 4-16x44 SF scope using the same rings. I also bought a slightly longer Tikka T3x recoil pad (#S54065174) from Beretta for it. No other mods.

In addition to being drilled and tapped, the T1x receiver has an 11mm dovetail rail. Warne 7.3 rings would be an excellent choice for scope mounting using the dovetail.

I used the Warne dovetail rings. They’re labeled to fit a 3/8” dovetail, but if you flip the clamp over that side is for 11mm. That feature is poorly documented, not sure why.

Been going thru my glass and have decided that the Thor thermal is going on so I will need a 1913 Rail. Looks like that means DIP or EGW. Thanks for all the input. Like normal Rimfire Central folks are awesome.

An overlooked dovetail mount is the Burris Signature rimfire rings. They have the synthetic inserts which are available in different offsets so that the scope can be optically centered but also can be used for increased elevation. The best part of is that they do not leave ring marks on the scope. They come with two different sized clamping lugs, one for 3/8" dovetail or switch to the other one for 11mm dovetails.

Another vote for the Burris Signature with synthetic inserts. Use them on all my rimfires...except T1X after having a larger diameter match barrel installed. The medium rings provided about 1/8" clearance between the OEM barrel and 40 mm objective lens. It now has the DNZ Game Reaper 2- an excellent choice as well and they cost about the same as the Burris rings. The only issue I had with the Burris rings was that the provided screws are a tad short to initially catch the ring screw threads before the inserts are compressed. It could be done, but took a little fiddling to prevent cross-threading. Called Burris CS and they sent longer screws, no charge.
