Default Tikka Superlight 6.5 Mount ?

Grabbed a Tikka Superlight in 6.5 Creedmore. New to Tikka’s.

What kind / brand of scope mounts are ya’ll running. Not really sure about how the factory rings mount exactly. Or just go with a pic rail.

Thanks.
MD

For a no thrills hunting rifle I like the one piece style mounts.

Talley. All the way. All of my Tikka's have them- the factory rings are fine but the screws are crap and I don't really care for the DNZ mount at all.

When you’re talking about a hunting rifle, Talley is the only name you need to know. If they make a mount to fit your rifle, you need search no further.

I have a scope mounting business. Most people have their pet favorite mount which they tout as superior to all others. In reality there are a number of companies making excellent bases and rings of EQUAL quality which happens to be excellent.

Burris, Talley, Warne, DNZ, Leupold, EGW and Weaver.

I am borish and annoying but WTF ? Do you mean scope rings or scope mount base ? Your weapon has a built in base and comes with factory rings. ???? Ya lost me on page 0.01. If you have to go all custom bingo like all the cool kids may I have your useless factory rings please ? - Thanks

T3X’s don’t come with rings or mounts...

Since you asked. On my .243 I'm pretty sure I used Talley in low profile. Puts the 50mm scope less than 1/8" off the barrel. Needed very little lapping to get full contact.

Great looking whip, thanks for posting. What scope is that? A VX3 with a CDS in silver?

Thank You.. Yes it is a VX-III 4.5x14. I have had the scope for quite a while. Last Winter I sent it to Leupold for the CDS retrofit. Fun addition but haven't had the chance to play with much past 300 yards.
