I'm currently in the market for a new scope and am intrigued by the rail mounting systems offered by Zeiss, Schmidt and Bender, and Swarovski.
 
My question is are all of these rail mount systems the same or is there any appreciable difference between them? Is one regarded as the best? The scope will be mounted on a Blaser R93.
 
Thanks,
            Josh

Hi Josh,
I am new to this forum but have just purchased a Swarovski PH scope with the SR rail mount system. I have posted asking for info as to mounting options for a Weatherby rifle. I have had no replies as well. It apears that not many people have experience with this proprietary system. My scope should arrive any day and I bought a Weaver/Picatinny base which seems the only option for my rifle. The scope to base system is listed around the web for about $100. It is claimed that it will keep your optics plumb and will stay solid as a rock under recoil. I know I am responding to an older post but please let me know how your decision worked out.

Rockblaster,
                     From the information I've been given, the Swarovski, Schmidt and Bender, and Zeiss rail mount systems all work on the same concept. I've decided to go with a Zeiss scope, not so much because of the mouting system but because of the specifications of the scope itself. I've got a 2.5-10X50mm diavari on order and its suppossed to take ~8 weeks to come in from Germany. The mount itself is currently on its way. I'm planning on posting pics once I get it and I'll let you know of my impression once I get get it.
 
FYI. You're getting a comparitive bargain with your mount as the Blaser scope mounts all go for $375 regardless if you want a 1", 30mm, or rail mount. Pretty rediculous, but what are you going to do?
 
Josh

Hey Josh,
 I've just got mine up and going, at least mounted and bore sighted.  I will post some pics in the next couple of days.  My high end camera appears to be malfunctioning so will use the wifes $200  (which seems to take better photos anyway) when she gets home. It is really a clean look without the rings and am anxious to get it to the range. Good luck with yours, Mark
