Hi all,
 
I found out about this forum a little while back and seems like there are plenty of folks with upscale gear and upscale knowledge to go with it. Hope one of them can help me with this.
 
I've got a Schmidt & Bender PM II 4-16X50 (34mm diameter) and right now I'm in the process of deciding to get either a Sako TRG-22 or a Blaser R93 LRS2. My problem now is that my choice might be restricted to the Sako, since I can't seem to find a mounting system for the Blaser that will offer 20 MOA of forward angle for the scope. Warne, Badger and plenty of others make 20 MOA bases for TRG's, so that's no problem but, for the life of me, I can't find a slanted base for Blaser R93's. I'm amazed that there's no German manufacturer that could figure out how to put a German scope on a German rifle with a forward angle...
 
Anyone have any idea what I could use? Or is there no solution to this?
 
Any and all help would be most appreciated!

I prefer steel; he seems to work with aluminium.

Wow, that looks pretty much exactly like what I'm after - but do they make them canted (with a forward angle)?

Any other ideas?

I have no doubts about it either, but I like choice!
 
Someone told me that the LRS2 can be ordered with a canted Picatinny rail from Blaser and he measured the cant to be 12 MOA; can anyone confirm?

Hi S&B.

 

What you have heard is 99.9% correct.

 

Blaser do a weapon called the Tactical 2. It is based on the same R93 action and looks very similar to the LRS2 but... it comes with a Picatinny rail that is "bolted" directly to the top of the receiver, not just clamped on like the Blaser saddle mount. This rail is available (from memory) in zero, 20 and 40 MOA angles.

 

The Tactical 2 also comes with a very effective muzzle brake and has an optional tail spigot.

 

I have first hand experience and training with these weapons and they are very accurate.

 

Regards,

 

Paul.

OK, is there any documentation about this rail on the Tactical 2? I've done a lot of searching regarding sloped mounts and R93's but have come upon nothing, so I'm surprized I missed it. Can you point me to a web page, brochure, manual, etc.? I'd really appreciate it! Big%20Grin

No worries.
 
Go to the Blaser USA web site and you'll find it in their price list http://www.blaser-usa.com/uploads/media/Blaser_USA_Price_List_2007_10.pdf - http://www.blaser-usa.com/uploads/media/Blaser_USA_Price_List_2007_10.pdf  (near the top of the last page).
 
Unfortunately my memory failed me, they do 12 and 40 MOA not 20 and 40 as I said above.
 
(They also do a zero angle mount, but Blaser USA do not list it).
 
Regards,
 
Paul.

Dear God, how did I miss that catalogue... and from Blaser themselves, no less!
 
Heh, count on a fellow Commonwealther to help out; many thanks - 12 MOA is not perfect, but it's a lot closer to 20 MOA than a flat rail.

I don't know how much angle you need, but the 40MOA rail can be bought separately for approximately $230-$250Au.

 

What calibre are you thinking of?

Nothing fancy: .308
 
But the reason I need the 20 MOA is because of how the scope I already have is set up at the factory; here's the info, straight from the manual (see section 4.2, p.3): http://www.schmidtbender.com/images/downloads/PMIIInstructions2006Edition.pdf - http://www.schmidtbender.com/images/downloads/PMIIInstructions2006Edition.pdf
 
From the above, you can see that 40 MOA is inappropriate for my scope (with a 130 cm elevation range).

hello guys, I have quite similar problems, but I already have my blaser lrs2 with standard blaser saddle mount. I would like to get a picatinny rail to mount it on this saddle mount... can anyone help me?

Go SAKO.  The mounts you want are available, it's better built and safer.
