Question on scope mount on Savage 111G 25-06

I want to mount a Leupold vari x 2 on a Savage 111 long action 25-06. The receiver is long over the bolt and the scope is too short ,the Weaver rings I have would hit the cant of the scope and there is no room to adjust eye relief forward or backwards. If any of you guys have a rifle like this, I was wondering what rings and base I would need?

Savage Arms makes a short and long action receiver from what I read...Appreciate any help I can get on this, I was getting this gun ready to give to my Grandson as his 1st hunting rifle for his birthday in May...Thanks...

I had a similar problem with my 3006...I bought a weaver one piece mount...it gives you another slot to mount the scope...it's a PITA loading and unloading but it works for me.

Also I believe weaver makes rings that are offset to allow more adjustment...good luck.

Thanks Whil e , I was looking at the one piece Weaver base, and it looked like it would fit but might be a PITA to load and unload with the bar across the receiver, I was hoping I could come up with something else that would be a little easier for my Grandson to operate.... Thanks for your input...

I have a Savage 112 that I tried 2 or 3 brands of factory bases and nothing would line up right with the holes. So I finally took it to a gunsmith, he took a piece of undrilled Picatinny rail and custom fit it to the predrilled holes. It wasn't the cheapest route but it worked out great.

Thanks for the link, hopefully I will find some off set rings and a 2 piece base that will work...

Get a set of Weaver bases and then get a set or two of Weaver extension rings. The sets come with one extension ring and one regular ring.

One set might give you enough room to span the action but I know there are some actions that need two extension rings to work.

I had a similar issue with a savage 110(older model) in 223. Older scopes were longer, the new generation of scopes are all pretty short. I used the weaver extension rings on mine. Works fine. A one piece rail would work as well.

Thanks to all for all the good ideas I received on this thread. I knew I could count on some good advise on here from my friends on HPA....I was thinking of getting the Dual extension rings ( #49045 ) and the one piece base mount (#431M )....That might work out ok.....

Try the extension rings in place before you buy a base. If they provide enough room you may get away with single bases which is better than a one piece base for clearance.

BTW check Walmart for the rings. I found them there a few times and the prices were pretty good.
