Default Vortex Strike Eagle + 1895

Looking for a new scope mount/rings that will give me better eye relief than i get now with this current mount i have

https://www.amazon.com/CCOP-MNT-1516...4E501BPY4CFG7J

at the moment 1-2x is a comfortable hold from holding my cheek on the rest with decent eye relief but any further magnification and i have to uncomfortably shift my face foward. I just need about 2" and im hoping one of you guys can direct me toward the correct fitting mount for the 1895sbl.

Check out ADM.

They can get the scope somewhat forward

https://www.americandefensemanufactu.../product/1122/

or really forward

https://www.americandefensemanufactu.../product/1129/

but it will come at a price.

I had misread your original post, however, not sure what you were expecting using a cantilever mount designed for an AR. With a more traditional rifle stock (read not AR straight stock) a standard set of scope rings will do the trick. There is a reason the cantilever is not working for you and that is because this the wrong application for it.

yeah i was reading an article on eye relief. found some standard rings like you mentioned and that will give me a more comfortable height and relief. for the meantime i turned the mount like suggested above and it's right on the money.

I assume from the thread title the OP has a Marlin 1895. I believe too an AR mount would be awful. I don’t see how you could get a good cheek weld using an AR mount.

First you were using small rifle primers in pistol rounds and getting bad results http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s....php?t=1427723 and now you're using an AR mount on the wrong type of gun.

Use the right tool for the job.

i found out why i had a few primers not set off. I wasn't pressing them into the pocket enough. Was .002" off but thats been fixed and tested with all primers set off. Small rifle primers for 9mm are good to go. Sometimes you don't always have to do things by the book and improvise with what you have. Don't be triggered by someone else's methods as long as they work.

SRP's in pistol were very common in "IPSC" in the late 80's when guys were hot-rodding 38 Super and 9mm to make major.

Most of these AR mounts are designed for a lower 1/3 cowitness. Absolutely too high for a lever gun like a Marlin 1895, you will get no cheek weld.

Another vote for American Defense AD68L.

Edit: For some reason I assumed you had an 1895 SBL which has the picatinny rail on top. The above will work with a rail.
