Sniper Country Duty Roster collective wisdom

Scope mounts: Shims

Torsten: HELP! I am considering acquiring an SSG PII. I have spoken to NECG and have
been told that EAW does not make a set of rings that are tapered. I see you mentioned a
"canted" base they made on one of your other rifles. I was wondering if you were aware of
anything that might be available in Europe that NECG might not be aware of. Do you
perhaps have a number for EAW so I could call them direct? Any help would be greatly

Almost forgot, NECG said that I could use an .020" thicker "block" under the rear ring,
but it wouldn't be tapered. This struck me as a particularly bad idea. Any input guys?

If they can not help you, then you just have to get a smith that will mill you a slanted
Picatinney rail to fit the SSG receiver. I would never ever raise only one ring.
If you need more detail, or eaw cant comunicate with you E me and I´ll help.
