I have a Swarovski Z6 1-6x24 EE to put on my comming Winchester Model 70 safari express in 458
I have read that the large eye boxe of this scope may require a higher set of rings than the low ones
anyone has experience on this
thank

Canuck

I have this scope mounted on my M70 in .375. The Talley QD low rings were too low but the Leupold QRW with low rings worked fine. I prefer the Talley’s but I don’t want to raise the scope up that far.

the Leupold may fit with the low ring but the base is higher so it come to the same hight if you would of take the talley with medium ring

I believe that it is lower than the Talley with the med ring. I may be wrong, but if what you say is true, I’m pretty sure it would be in Talley mounts.

Sorry, it’s been a while since I mounted it. Wish I was more help.

You need warne or tally medium in order to clear the bolt. The eyepiece is a little large. Plenty of clearance on medium. Depending on how you open the bolt you possibly could use low but I believe you will need to palm it. this is a Warne medium

I hate to be the one to suggest this, but you can buy both options and just keep the one that works the best for you. Return the other to midway or brownells or wherever you bought them from-

I called Talley and told them the gun and scope combo and they know what mounts and rings to send. I have done this on 7 rifles and all are perfect for me.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
