All the dope on risers, rings, scopes and optics.

Thank you both! I checked out the companies SqHunter recommended, but unfortunately their weaver style rings are only for 30mm+ scopes. And neither company has bases for the narrow Savage receiver.

But I did get ahold of Morr Accuracy yesterday. He did offer to custom make new 3/8 bases for this thing, but he’s backed up a few weeks right now. I decided to try a set of his tactical target rings that fit a 1” scope on weaver rails, but are about a half inch lower than I was hoping for. That’s still much better than what I’m using today, and if those still frustrate me I’ll have him custom build the new bases and get his taller rings.

I appreciate everyone’s help on this. The Savage is actually a very accurate rifle with a great trigger for the price point, but it’s hard to support for the sillhouette game unfortunately. In time it’ll probably become a backup, but it’ll still do for now.

That is a great idea, thank you. I checked the website and he has bases for Remington rifles already available.

I just completed some 11mm bases for rem 700 rifles (still need black oxide). Both nothing for savage. One thing to keep in mind is that in adding a base you no longer you will be over 1.5" high off the action most likely so go to a shorter size ring than 1.5". The set shown below are actually for a rem 700 clone.

You make some slick products Pete, and thanks for trading emails earlier this week on this! If I do end up with new bases, I know I’ll have to take that into account and that’s what I had done with the current Weaver bases (which also add height).
