    Posted: January/10/2009 at 16:23
I am trying to decide what Talley Lightweight mounts I would need to install a Nikon Monarch 4-16X50 on a Savage LA rifle (round receiver) with Savage varmint barrel.  The scop has flip caps, but Talley does not provide center line distances for their mounts that i can find.  Anyone ever mount this scope on a similar rifle? Trying to keep the scope as close as possible to the barrel of course.

Dont know if you are open to a suggestion but I like this system. The Nikon scopes are quite limited regarding how much internal adjustment they have and this system of plastic inserts allows you to very easily shim the scope one direction or another or add plus moa should you wish to shoot long range. The other advantage is that these do not mark up and scratch the scope. Also the dual dovetail system will not come loose ever. The additional strength of steel vs aluminum can also be a factor.  I have heard really good things about talley so you may be on the right track but I have tried a number of systems and this works well.

Thank you for your reply, but yes I want to use the Talley's.  I have nothing but praise for the Burris Signatures though.  Just want to use the Talley's on this rig.

If you use the outside measurement of the flip caps as the outside diameter of your scope, and give that to Talley, they should be able to tell you what will work. I gave them the outside diameter of my scope, and they did a very good job.

With 50 mm and lens caps you will likely need high rings.
Good Luck be sure to let us know how you like the Talley Rings, when I look at the way they mount I dont see a recoil lug just side pressure system which makes me a little uncomfortable with the system but they do have a nice clean look to them.

Thanks for the suggestions to call Talley directly.  Ordered the mounts today.  Should have them before the weekend.  Might have a chance to make it to the range with any luck Yippee
It is more about where you put the bullet and less about the size of the exit hole IMO

OK,

  I got the Talley's on the rifle.  Look great and fit super.  Problem is there is absolutely no fron to back adjustment with the Nikon 4-16X50  Shocked  Does anyone have a suggestion for rings/bases that will give me some needed adjustment room.

You can turn the mounts around, both or one of them. That might give you some more wiggle room.

  Tried that.  Zero room.  I have them both facing out(gives me min distance between mounts).  I have less than 1/4" movement.  Long actions are the pits for mounts it seems.
