Hi,
I should receive the SS 10x42 scope this week .  I'm looking to mount it primarily on a Savage 10FCM Sierra.  I'd like to also mount it on a Bushmaster AR15 M4.  It'd be nice to be able to swap the scope back and forth using a quick-mount between the two rifles without having to adjust the rings.  Is this possible?  If so, which mount/base combinations would I need?  If it's not possible (without spending $200-$300 on exotic mounts -- It'd be cheaper to get another SS scope ) then, what is needed to mount it on the 10FCM rifle?

I've heard good things about the Leupold QRW rings.  For each rfile, which height and base would I need for the 10FCM, and for the M4?

I'm new to scopes so any help will be appreciated.

Mark

Leupold 30 mm medium QRW rings - 64.95

Leupold 2 piece QRW/PRW base for the Savage 10 - 29.95

B-Square riser for the flat top - 42.95

 

Would have to get the B-square riser to clear the front sight and hand guard for the M4 with just medium rings.

 

When you go to switch the scope to the M4 you could run in to a problem. The spacing between the cross slots on the QRW base may be different from the riser's cross slot spacing. They would have to be exact for this set up to work. If you have to remove the ring from the scope you would be defeating the whole purpose of the set up. You may just be better off getting another scope to eliminate confusion.

Brady,

The Savage 10FCM has an Accu-trigger so the base-rest is 'round' (new style).  The Leupold 2 piece base for the 110 is for the older base.  Do you have another base recommendation?

Thanks,
Mark

Yeah the QRW/PRW's are only available in the non accu-trigger models. It's still for a model 10 though. The only other option I see is the picatinny rail made by badger. It's a one piece rail for accu-trigger's with built in 20 moa just for short actions. You could then put some IOR quick detach rings on it, and still use the riser for the M4.

 

IOR Quick Detach Tactical 30mm Rings..... $64.95

 

Badger Ordnance 1 Piece Rail..... $156.95

 

B-Square riser.....$42.95
