Scope mounts for weathermark 6 lug 3006
« on: April 28, 2018, 09:18:17 AM »
Looking for recommendations to mount Vx 3i 3.5-10 40 mm on Mark V Weathermark 3006.
Trying to keep weight down. Gun shop says 2 piece bases and fixed ring set up may not provide sufficient eye relief adjustment. Never used ring base combo and want to avoid a rail. Thoughts appreciated.

I would call Talley and tell them what you have and what you are looking to do. They can complete the sale right then and mail you what you need.

Iíve also had good luck with Leupold rings and bases, but just MAKE SURE you get the right ones. If you go the Talley route and call them, you will know absolutely you are getting what you need.

All I use now are the Talley lightweight 1 pc, so save yourself the headache and call them. I wasn't happy with the Leupold rings and bases on my ULW and replaced them with Talleys. Show us some pictures once you get it rigged up!

Thanks. The one piece rings / base combo can be turned around to provide mounting options, correct?

Talley customer service was very helpful and provides two good options for the Weathermark 6 lug 06. The steel  (split) rings and bases can be ordered with an extended front base  to provide a bit more adjustment for eye relief. The lightweight ring / base combo can be turned  around  to the same effect. The lightweights are about half the weight of the steel.

I am now not  sure and probably over thinking. The Weathermark is 6.25 lbs and the scope is 12.6 oz. So it's a light but not ultra light weight rig. The steel rings and bases are 2-3 oz heavier than the lightweights so the added weight between the hands may help steady the gun when shooting from position.

I will throw my vote in for the Lightweights.

I appreciate all of the good responses. Decided to go with the extended  steel ( front) bases and fixed rings. Figure the extra 3 oz. on an  already
light rig will be fine and possibly more shock proof. Thank again all.
