1. For reasons unknown to us at SCC, it seems that SCC members who are AT&T users experience issues with emails and personal messages when using our forum. This is not unique to SCC and several other internet sites are reporting the same issues. Todo10, the company who helps us with the forum and hosting, have file a complaint with AT&T but we are not convinced AT&T will do anything about it. The only way around this is to register and use another email address not connected to AT&T. We are sorry for any inconveniences this might cause!

    I have a mid '60's Forester .243 HB and it has a Lyman Super Targetspot scope on it. It has very little eye relief and I want to replace it with a newer/better scope . I am not sure the scope rings that are now offered are the same as the ones that were used in the 1960's. The Lyman scope is mounted in front of the action and doesn't use the Sake mounting area at all. If anyone has any information on what to get and height of the rings let me know. I would think I will get a 50 MM objective scope in one inch tube or similar. [​IMG]

    I have a set of unused Sako Optilock rings in the box which I'm sure would work for a 50mm objective on a Sako Heavy Barrel. I'll let you have them for a reasonable price and if they should happen not to work for you the way you'd like you can send them back for your money back. If you like, drop me a Private Conversation and we'll exchange shipping info.
