Help Choosing Mounts

Postby iscao » 25 Dec 2014, 21:36

Hi.
I have an mk4 panther, at 24joules with a sightron 10-50x60 on it.

The mounts i have are the totally adjustable sportsmatch atp 66, but i want to change them cause i´m having problems aligning the scope with the barrel.

I´m thinking on put the BKL 301 with risers. I need to eliminate the windage error,just by mounting the scope on the mounts.

What do you think? You recommend the BKL for this propose?

Regards
iscao

BKL Mounts provide excellent scope alignment, check the height needed to clear the magazine ideally keeping the scope as low as possible. I recommend following the instructions carefully.

If you are having scope alignment problems with adjustable mounts I do not see how non adjustable mounts will help.

BKL will mount centrally on the scope rails, but I would have thought so would ATP 66's, as they move in the horizontal plane, perhaps I misunderstand your issues.

Some barrels bore are not central to the outer diameter, is this your issue.

How are you measuring or observing your misalignment?

Probably the problem its me dont know how to work with the bought mounts and dont have the patience to work properly with them.

I know the barrell is good, the only problem it´s the mounts, and with mounts without horizontal adjusting the problem 99% sure it´ll be corrected.

The dilema its choosing the mount. For what i read the BKL are excellent, but price. For the other side, you may know other brand of mount as good as BKL and less price.

IMO BKL mounts are excellent for Air and Rimfire rifles; there unique design ensures that the scope tube is mounted in perfect alignment with the scope rail on your rifles action. BKLs also provide an extra 3mm pedestal height compared with other popular medium and high mounts; this factor can be useful on Daystate and other magazine rifles. BKLs are worth the money. ;)

BKL it is then :D I would go for single strap ones, as you are using on PCP rifle, this will save money too.

Sportsmatch are a good mount, use non adjustable ones if you have difficulty obtaining BKL's

Thanks mates :)

You think single strap mount it´ll be enough for 24 joules?

One thing, i also will use BKL risers with the mounts.

Where i can buy BKL Risers and mounts? I just know the opticswarehouse and ebay... On intershoot doesn't have, or at least doesn't show in the website.

Uttings, Tawnadoairguns, Deben.

I may be misunderstanding again, why do you need risers and mounts.

Single strap will be fine.

Whereabouts are you.

The risers it's for having less clicks of discount from the 40 mt to the 50mt. At least in theory..
