Re: New Ultra Slug Hunter- Scope Rings?
Tip, is the Leupold scope a compact model? You should have eye relief enough that the hammer is rearward of the eyepiece in the "fired" position. If the eyepiece bell touches the scope rail (using Low rings), try taking the scope rail off the gun and grind or file a chamfer on the rearward end, taking enough off so that the scope bell wont touch. A miss is as good as a mile; if you can get the tip of a toothpick in between, you're good. I've done this on two Ultra sluggers & have no problems, don't need a hammer extension either. Good Luck!
Forget about the danger; think of the fun!
