Whats the difference in regular vs extended? I'm mounting a Leupold VX2 3x9x40 on a Winchester Featherweight and think the lows will work but I don't know about these extended bases. Any suggestions?

The extended bases are for the long action calibers when used with shorter scopes that have less ring mounting distance (which I would guess the 3-9 you have, will have a shorter mounting area) .  I just put an SS 3-9x40 on a friend of mines .300 win mag, Winchester Model 70 with the low extended bases and it fits perfect.  If your rifle is a long action, then I think you will need the extended bases, if a short action then the regulars should do you fine.  I am by no means an expert, and I am just trying to pass my experience along.  Your best bet would be to call SWFA tomorrow, they will get you squared away with what you need....
