I ordered the SS 1-6x for my Rainier Arms RUC 16"  . I would like to order a SWFA Bobro mount for it and was wondering which mount I should go with  - regular , slightly forward or extended?? I normally shoot NTCH . I intend to use this rig for target shooting , 3 gun & some hunting . Who has the SS 1-4x & which Bobro mount did you go with ?  I was also wondering if a cattail throwlever is a must have with this type of scope . Thanks !

I have the 1-4 and ordered the 1-6 as well.  I have the slightly forward on my 1-4 and ordered the extended with my 1-6 as I also shoot NTCH and the slightly forward just doesn't cut it.  Great mounts by the way.  I did just call SWFA and ask to switch the order to the newer style Bobro with the screws on the top.  It is tough to use a torque wrench with them on the bottom.

Thanks gaberelli for the info about the extended Bobro - sounds like that will be the ticket for me. Did you happen to buy a throwlever for your 1-4x & if you did was it a must have for this scope? Another ? is how tight do you torque these mounts without damaging your scope - never mounted scope before ??

I have the throwlever and it IS a MUST have.  Not only is the mag ring tight, it is devoid of any texturing.  I will be getting one for my 1-6 SWFA SS as well.  I have it mounted so that at 1x is at about 10 oclock and at 4x is at 4 oclock.  9 & 3 leaves is poking into you when it is slung against your chest and at 1x.

The torque specs for the mount are 18 in/lbs.  INCH POUNDS.  You will need a torque wrench and some blue loktite.

Just shot a doe at 350 yards with this setup on a 6.8 AR.

I too have the slightly forward Bobro mount for my SS 1-4x. Here's a pic.

Another question ? Any idea when SWFA will have the 1-6x throwlever available . I talked to a SWFA rep that said the 1-4x throwlever is not the correct size.  Would be great if they had it available when the 1-6x ships.
