I wanted to mount the Vortex Razor HD II 4.5-27 on the Tikka TAC A1 for a play. However, the existing ‘medium’ scope rings were not tall enough to clear the Picatinny mount on the front.
I figured it was time to also invest in some decent mounts. Spending close to $4k on a scope – decent rings only make sense.
Will it make you shoot better? Hmmm… hard call. And honestly – not that interested in extensive A/B comparisons between scope rings – I do have better things to do. However, it’s one of those things – buy once, cry once, no question now that the scope isn’t moving at all.
