Hi all,

I’m hoping to get some help identifying a few bases and rings.

Years ago I acquired the collection of shooting accessory of a life long military rifle collector and competitive shooter, apparently he was well regarded nationally in the benchrest community also, sadly I did not know the man.

I’ve been cleaning out my home workshop lately and found a small box of rings and bases that came from him. I do not have information on any of these, I’m hoping you all might share your hard earned knowledge!

I took pictures and posted them on a webpage with some measurements and my guesses as to what they are.

You can find it here: -  

If your willing, I would greatly appreciate your 2¢ on these.

Thanks in advance if you decide to give it look.

I can´t answer to any Redfield related but I believe that #4 is Lynx (or Hillver) and #7 is Millet.

I agree, #4 almost certainly Hilver

Was sure I had a point when I started this post...
