    Rimfire Technologies (top) and EGW (bottom)

    If you intend on shooting your .22lr or other rimfires past 100 yards and reducing or eliminating excessive "holdover" as your scope may run out of vertical adjustment, a sloped or MOA base is a must have. This is comparison of the Diversified Innovative Products (DIP) 25 moa base and the Evolution Gun Works (EGW) 20 moa base, and some of my objective opinions of both.

    In the spring of 2010, Savage unveiled their new top-secret rifle the Edge, and within less than two moths after Savage unveiled this new rifle, EGW created a new, one-piece Picatinny/Weaver mount for it. At this time, there is no other alternative for a one-piece mount, for the Edge. This is the first product I have ever gotten from EGW and I will evaluate this new mount and describe how it fits, works, and how well it is made.

    The Edge is a new altogether different design rifle that has a dissimilar scope base mounting distance than that of the 110/10 model Savage rifles. The Edge is able to use the two-piece mounts made for a round back Savage 110/10 series rifle, but this limits the availability of useable ...

    When I finally got my project gun together I needed a good quality well-built scope base and ring system, but there was a hitch, I needed the lightest thing possible, so weight was the biggest factor, so that my gun would weigh in at our goal of the 10.5 lbs weight limit. The slightest ounce would make or break this goal, I did not want something cheaply made, or lightly built. I need a tough mount that would allow the gun shoot repeatable and hold zero. I also needed a set up that the rings was very close together, due to the scope I wanted to use being so short. This is when I learned about the Talley lightweight scope mount system that they offer.

    Before this, I had never ...

    Game Reaper scope mounts are relatively new to the gun market, and they are a product of DNZ Products located in Sanford, North Carolina. The mounts are made by Certified Machining in the same location. Considering how many firearm related products are now made in China, it's refreshing to see an American made product.

    Game Reaper mounts are machined from billet aluminum into a single piece mount. There are no moving or adjoining parts other that the ring caps. Multiple piece rings/bases will allow for rings to come loose from their bases over time which will let the scope start to wander. On this mount, it is all a single piece of aluminum. The machined billet also allows the base to be light weight while remaining strong. The other ...

    When we planned Project 2005, one thing we wanted to do is use quality components on the rifles when possible. The scope mounts are no exception. In fact, since an African safari was part of the project, the bases and rings had to be very well made. Nothing would be worse than to get half way around the world and discover that you are not able to hit your game because the scope mounts are damaged. The rings and bases also had to be precise enough to allow for long range match shooting without worrying if the mounts are doing more harm than good to the rifle's performance.

    Once the requirements were established, I then proceeded to contact various companies ...
