New T3x, scope mount.
« on: March 02, 2018, 07:41:55 PM »

Hello all,
New to Tikkas and have a question. Just brought home a T3x lite Stainless in 6.5 Creedmore. also have a game reaper scope mount for a vortex viper 4-16. But the screws that came with the mount do not fit in the holes. they don't even go down to the threads. also there are 5 threaded holes and 2 non threaded holes, along with the optiloc hole on the top of the receiver. Did Tikka change the size/ configuration of the holes?

Thanks,
Logged

After much more reading online, they were the right screws. 6-48. I was just afraid to jam them in. But they went in very easy once they got started. Can't wait to take it to the range next week....

Ditto .... looks great .... is your mount 0 MOA or 20 MOA?  I just received some Warne rings to try, and have some Burris rings coming today.  Both 30mm High rings .... I'll see which ones mount the Nightforce 56mm objective the closest to the barrel.  The closer the better.
