Can anyone help me slect the right scope mounts for a Sako 85 VLS in .30 cal. I will be installing a Zeiss conquest 3.5-10x44 and was looking at the Sako Optilock Rings 1" Xtra Lo S/S S130R923 or would i need the 1" Lo S/S S1300924. Any assistance would be appreciated.

 
Happy Hunting

Personally... I don't like Optilok rings at all.  The rings are way too high unless you are using huge objective bells, the bases are unnecessarily thick, the screws they use seem very soft, and they are very expensive.  The only positives I can say for them is they have the ring inserts that prevent scope marring and misalignment and their finishes match the Sako rifle finishes perfectly.

For Sako rings, I'm a Talley man...

Amen, Brother Ted. Optilocks aren't worth the coinage.
