I recently bought a Zeiss Conquest 3-9X40 scope. I am going to mount it on a Weatherby 7mm and was wondering if the standard low mount Weaver rings would work or do I need to get Medium rise rings? I have never used a scope with the "European" blunt style end. Thanks.

I think the low mounts will work with the 40mm objective.

My 44mm Conquest took a medium.

 

Good choice on a scope.

Thats a tough call.  Lows might get the objective end to clear the barrel, however that scope has a large eyepiece, so there is bolt Clarence to consider as well.

 

Also, if you plan on putting flip up covers on the scope, that will add millimeters to the OD of the objective.

 

Good Luck!

Dave

Also keep in mind that different manufacturers low rings are different heights.

 

Medium will work great and leave room for the covers as David mentioned.  Consider the Talley One Piece Rings and Bases.

Just for everyone's information I finally got the Conquest Scope and my Weaver rings (low) worked fine.
