Hi first time posting, long time reader. I just want to take a moment to say I feel this is awesome website for vast amounts of information and also a great place to purchase too. Thanks everyone.

I just purchased a 3-9x50 zeiss duralyt scope off the sample list and need help in mounting it. I have a Remington win. 760 gamemaster pump. The mount that is on it is a Remington single base mount. Here is a link to one that was for sale on ebay so you can see what I have.

I don't know if this mount is all that great but it kept the old japan made 3-9x40 tasco scope in tact all these years with around 40 whitetail deer under its belt. If you guys think I should replace it then I may. If so I didn't know if someone could give me a SWFA part # to a good setup. I've heard good thing about Warne, Tally and such. If you guys (and Gals) think this base is good enough I would only need a part number for a decent set of rings that would work with my old mount.

I do want fixed ring because I never took the old scope off the gun in the past 30 years till now. I know I need 30mm and I am thinking medium is as low as I can mount this, maybe someone can confirm this.

Thanks Joe

Welcome to Optics Talk, Joe. 

I deleted the link you posted. Please don't post links to other optics vendors, as per ROE # 3.

I now realize you were merely trying to show what part you had by posting the other retailers link. 
I should have let that go, Joe. I'm sorry. 

Feel free to repost, if you think it will help.

Yea I wasn't sure about that either, that's why I got a link from an auction that was over. I took some pictures on my digital camera and downloaded them to My Pictures on the computer, but couldn't figure out how to get them in here.

Thanks for that link, looks like those might work. Do you know if their is one or two screws that hold each of those down. Wonder if those be mounted either way if I ran into clearance issues such as eye relief

2 screws per ring mount, into receiver, then 4 screws per cap. Yep, you can flip them around, if need be.  

I love these rings.

But be advised.....

One ring is for the rear and one ring for the front of the receiver. One ring mount is more round and the other more flat. 
I meant you can flip them around to get better scope mounting, if you wish. So long as you have the correct one fore and aft.

Ok I am going to order a set, that's a fine looking setup you have. Thanks for the heads up. Do they tell you what to tork the set screws at when I get these. Now all I need to order is a set of flip covers, I will have to figure out what size to get, hopefully all 50mm will fit. What brand you have on your Leupold?

Talley light-weight ring mounts
base to receiver:20-25in/lbs
ring halves:15-20in/lbs

I honestly can't recommend these Talley ring mounts enough. These things are light and STRONG. I typically put a dab of BLUE Loc Tite on the base screws when installing. None on the cap screws. 

You can either call the good folks at SWFA directly and they will advise on what cover you need, or go to this thread and post your question on here and they will give you your answer. All 50mm objective covers are not the same.


Those were Butler Creek, but I changed those out since with Alumina scope covers. They are made exclusively for Leupold scopes, I think. 

All the best! Let us know if we can be of further assistance. You can send me your pics of your rifle when completed and I will be happy to post them on here for you. You need 50 posts to post pictures.
