Scrumbag yes the guys had a ball of a time it was 2018 cause it was to be held this year at Darwin hosted every second year. They shot with us the week before the world champs and one of our BASA guys won the tournament.

@Frederik

The underside of the Recknagel QD mounts has a hole for a pin

What I dont like about the Recknagel QD mount is that it lifts the reflex or aimpoint and might be too high where you have to lift your head when shooting.
My goal was to get as close as possible to using it like open sights.

True...and you couldn't get lower than your setup. I added a stock pad to get my eye lined up where it needed to be.

It is actually supplied with a screw, where the head rests against the bridge. I used one to mount an aimpoint on a CZ 527.

Ah I have tried one on my CZ527 in .223 Rem once (then we got locked down for CV19) so haven't had much of a play. Didn't use the screw. Did you find it necessary to use the screw?

I find that on my 9.3x62. The stock fits me well with the open sights but I need just a bit of lift to work well with the red dot.

I used it just because it was supplied.

And actually, I think the screw goes in the end, not the bottom. I will look.

It goes on the end for the 527 size. Not enough room on the underside for a pin.

Some new feedback after shooting BASA competition again this weekend the sight and rifle is easily coming together and without too much effort is extremely fast to handle and firing accurately.

I came 2nd place this shoot only to the person who won the world big bore champs. Thinking, a few more shoots and everybody will hate me or change to a setup like mine.
We were just over 90 shooters for the day.

Ammo used is cheap Claw bullets non bonded 480gr Loaded witrh Norma 203B powder running at 2300fps.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice
