    to all,

    i recently bought a chapuis 375 h & h rifle, it will need swing off scope mounts/rings.

    any recommendations on the best, most repeatable and secure brand or style? i am at a bit of a loss as to how the actually lock up on the rear end.

    any suggestions? thanks in advance!

    @BeeMaa,

    thanks, finally got an answer. i ended up going to NE custom guns got their quick lock swing mounts. you are right, about $500. i research a while, they were a touch more than some other swing mounts, figured it was worth it after hearing some reviews on you tube.

    Glad it worked out.
    I found some other mounts made in Germany, but couldn't find a supplier in the US.
    Had to do a Google search for "pivot scope mount", looked at pictures, and went from there.
    What did we do before Google and blogs?

    Did your Chapuis come with factory bases? My Sagittaire came with Recknagel bases factory installed for their swing mounting system. Are you sure the NECG rings will fit? JJ Perodeau has access to the Recknagel product and installed a set on my rifle. http://jjperodeau.com/

    After taking a look at Chapuis Armes, I'm intrigued.
    Is your 375 an O/U or SxS?
    Love to see a picture.

    EAW mounts are a very fine German made detachable mounting system. I have them on a 318 Westley Richards. I have two different sets of rings and scopes for the rifleand in the 10 plus years using this setup I have never had an issue keeping zero. The scope and mounts were installed by JJ Perodeau and his work is excellent.

    That is a big plus of having detachable scope, the ability to have multiple optics.
    300 yards...use 3-18x50.
    100-200 yards...1-6x24
    <100 or DG on the menu...open sights or maybe a reflex/red dot.

    My problem is the cost of these particular mounts.
    They are VERY nice and WAY out of my league when it comes to price, especially when it comes to buying multiple sets.
    Then again, I don't have the $$ for the double gun to mount them on either.
    Problem solved.

    i have an o/u rifle. the wood is amazing, it called to me, so i had to buy it!!!;)

    the rifle has two fillers in the rib. two screws for each filler. the EAW mount will come with bases and rings. i simply called NE custom guns, told him the rifle i had, and the scope i was going to mount on the rifle. he checked out the correct base and rings and put them on order.

    i will try to attach a photo at some point here.

    @Red Leg
    my rifle was an auction rifle, so it came with a case and the gun. i felt i got a decent deal on it. no bases, they will come with the EAW rings that are on order. look just like the photos posted above by john flaws.

    like i said before, i think the wood is pretty awesome and i HAD to try to buy it!!

    I do not know of a finer set of swivel mts. BUT they are a little complicated for SOME applications. I would recommend NECG do the installation there are many different block heights for scope front rear alignment. That said I am just about to walk out and put a set on a CZ 550 a very easy installation. Just depends!
