Fitting and Size Guide Considerations
The way you calculate the clearance is by halving the overall OUTSIDE diameter of your rifle scopes objective lens and then deducting half the rifle scopes body tube diameter.
For scopes with a 30mm diameter body tube this means deducting 15mm.
Note we say OUTSIDE diameter - this means NOT the lens diameter, you need to measure the whole outer casing diameter.
The result gives you the minimum "saddle" dimension required - the measure from base of mount to bottom of the ring - the Saddle Height that is shown above.
The amount the saddle dimension is greater than the figure you have calculated is the amount of clearance your scopes objective will be clear of your rifles body. The saddle on these mounts is -
Worked Example -
- A scope has an outer case measurement of 60mm.
- 60 divided by 2 = 30.
- 30 minus 15 = 15mm
- So the mount must have a saddle measure (base of mount to bottom of the ring) greater than 17mm or else it will ground out on the rifle body unless the base is raised
This is an approximate guide:
Calculating clearance in this way assumes the rail is not raised above or below the barrel/body
Rifles with grooved receivers such as some models of airgun and .22 rimfire will mean the scope sits lower than a rifle with a raised dovetail.
Weaver/Picatinny on the other hand may raise, in some cases quite a lot.
Something else to consider is that some rifles with a high or adjustable cheek pieces may require high or extra scope mounts so that your eye is in line with the rifle scope and your head is kept in an upright comfortable position.
