I had few 2piece bases, I mounted one and but my sav 220 and I found out that the 2.5 x cabelas scope is too short. What scope do you on top of your 220?

Which one piece base is working for you?

Your best bet would be a one piece rail and weaver style rings (high).

I used a Warne tactical rail with high burris sig. zee rings and a Nikon 3-9 slughunter

I used an EGW 1 pc base on mine with Burris rings and a Leupold 2-7 Ultimateslam scope.

I used a Weaver i piece base, Leupold PRW(low if I remember right), and a Bushnell 1.75-4.5x32

Pabear, have you had any issues with fired hulls hitting your windage scope cap upon ejection?

just fyi, the manual actually recommends high rings

My gun shop got me a one peice Weaver mount. I paid $15.00 for it. I am using med Leupold rings and a Leupold 2x7X33 scope. Works great for me! ;D

Any base(s) for a long action Savage with round rear will work (accutrigger, stevens)

Should go without saying, but make sure you get a rail-style base. Bases with only one set of slots isn't going to give you the adjust-ability you need in ring spacing to mount today's shorter scopes.

I actually had a rather lengthy discussion about this "issue" with the folks at Savage after receiving a Model 212 slug gun in for review. Basically I pointing out "Why bother including the aluminum 2-piece Weaver bases on long-actions when they're utterly useless for most any hunting scope made after around 1990? If you're going to include a base, include the Weaver 1-pc rail which will actually permit the end user to mount a scope on the darn thing."

I don't remember the number as I threw away the package. When I ordered the gun I had the gun shop order the mount as well.

Weaver # 48329, I found out the hard way not all long action accu-trigger bases from weaver work on the 220F, I purchased a #99493 tactical weaver base Long action accu-trgger that won't work because they don't cut the radius the length of the base that sits on the action, they leave a 1/16" piece uncut and the base rocks on the action. After a call to weaver they said it is supposed to be like that.
