HELP NEEDED 11mm dovetail on Anschutz 54 Action

Post by warbird2006 » Sat Feb 18, 2017 4:41 pm

I purchased new Anschutz 1710 with 54 action for Silhouette shooting.
It has 11mm dove tail.

Then I got EDGE SILHOUETTE rings from morraccuracy.com

All the same features as the standard edge rings except with the maximum allowable height for silhouette competition, available in straight only, for 11mm rail.

EDGE RING STRAIGHT EXTRA TALL FOR 11MM RAIL -- E1-SET-11MM
THE EDGE SILHOUETTE

I guess what I missed is that 11mm dove tail on action 54 is different from 11mm rail

Any Ideas how I can fix my problem?

Thanks

I have those same rings on one of my Anschutz 54 rifles. They work great. What's the problem?

I have the same rings also. Make sure you have them in alignment with the rail, you can spread them a bit to ease installation.

The 3/8 US rings fit just fine in a 11mm dovetail.

I've used various BKL 11mm rings on all my Anschutz. Sometimes they go right on, sometimes they are tight. BKL's allow you to put the clamping screw in from the other side to spread the bases a skoch (that's a technical term for "a wee bit") so they go onto the rail. My point is 11mm is 11mm (dovetail, rail, etc), so if you can spread your bass just a skoch you should be fine once they are on the rail.

I have 2 pairs of those rings on am anschutz 54 and a cz455, both needed to be spread just a tiny bit to fit. Work beautifully and am buying another pair for high power.
