I need some utlra tall mounts for a rifle, I have a few 1" pairs but they are way too short... I would need something like 2" rings or even taller, which i'm having a really hard time finding.
 
 
could someone point me in the right direction?
 
 
many thanks,
 
nick

 You probably need to go to a "see-through" mount to get anything THAT high. Or you could stack risers on top of one another to go as high as you want.
 What are you building anyway?

Ya i have a pair of see-through mounts but they aren't very stable and can't hold a zero, i'll google those stack riseres and to understand what you're talking about.
 
I'm building an odd spring powered air rifle, the rail is on the barrel which sits an inch under the receiver, a red dot works fine but i'd like to mount some glass on it.

Any chance of showing us some pics? That sounds very interesting.
Also, is the rail a Weaver type? If so there are a lot of options for going high.
If it is a magnum springer you will want strong mounts and I can see where see through would not work.

It's not a magnum springer so quality mounts are not a must, it has a 3/8 dovetail rail on it, I was exaggerating about the rail being an inch lower but it is still too low with regular 1" mounts.

A side cocking bullpup, cool!
BKL makes a 1 in. riser for 3/8 in. dovetails that might be the ticket. They also make some pretty good mounts to put on top of the riser.
 
Good luck,
Doug
