A bit of a strange one but I was just digging through my drawer of gun bits and stumbled across a set of fixed Warne Tikka T3 scope mounts. I had a look at them and the dovetail size is the same as on my CZ550. I even went as far as fitting them to the rifle and the recoil pin on the side of the mount fits the groove in the CZ dovetail exactly! Does anyone know if they're the same mounts packaged for both guns? I honestly can't see a reason not to use them, everything fits as if made for the gun!

I own both rifles and have had Warne's on both. The Tikka Warne's have a recoil pin in the center on the underside of the front ring to engage the hole in the Tikka action. The CZ's recoil lug recess is on the rear bridge on the left side. This ring has an extended lug to fit in this recess. Even if the dovetail is the same width, I do not believe the rings are capable of interchange.

It sounds like you have CZ rings in a T3 package.

I’d suggest a phone call or email to Warne to find out for certain.

It's a long time since I had a T3 to look at. Thanks for this - I think your suggestion could be spot on as I've also had other 550's in the past.

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

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
