    My issue was much less pronounced but similar, in the end it was overcome with a custom made scope riser and a set of Sportsmatch ATP66 mounts.

    To every problem there is a solution, it just depends on how radical the solution is!

    Well with Jon on the case it seems my stress and frustration levels have dropped quite a lot.

    It should make it easier when it comes to sorting out No 14

    This is the sort of engineering / machining problem Jon loves.

    Neil you are spot on, Jon seems to be pulling out all the stops on this project as he reckons it should be done and ready for Friday at Millride - the pre European try out shoot.

    From the messages I am getting from him it is going better than expected.

    He has said that the rail will be "Utilitarian" - purposeful - not pretty pretty.
    I have no issue with that at all. The gun is stupidly accurate but the poi shift due to the rails was frustrating to say the very least.

    I think it was Rodney Boyce in the USA back in the 80's that had about the most utilitarian idea - a piece of 10" black rainwater drain pipe taped to his scope as a sunshade. Did the job - won competitions with it - so...…………. you do what you have to do.

    Ummm, that's either a busy workshop... or an incredibly impressive collection.

    Yes it is both, it's a working shop, and a personal collection. I don't think there are many 'interesting' guns he doesn't have. I think he has at least twice as many scopes too.
