    I have picked up a second hand MTC viper connect 3-12 x 24. I need suitable mounts for my HFT500, I am a little unsure what is required as this scope has short eye relief so I am wondering what I need to consider

    Thanks

    Milled down BKL mounts on my 32mm version, you could use any mounts with one cut down.
    I did buy the connect mount but thought it was poor quality, it wouldn't fit my Steyr anyway.
    I nicked this idea off someone I saw doing one.

    I used two single strap 30mm bkl mounts on mine space them as far apart as you can on the scopes tube as the 24mm tube is quite long you can get good spacing whilst still making the scope sit right for eye relief and comfort.

    The example above shows the 32mm version and they have removed one of the straps on the double strap mount (milled) to make it fit better.
