    Recently bought a 1968 Browning Safari with the Sako action (22-250) at the Tulsa show. The problem is that it came with a one-piece Redfield base and I was wanting to change the one-piece base to a two-piece base. I am running into several dead ends trying to find this two-piece base. Leupold said to use their bases for a Win mod 70,but after checking the hole spacing,that won't work. My hole spacing is .750" front and .500" back. I thought at one time Redfield would have made these two piece bases, but they are probably long gone by now. Any help or leads appreciated.Good shooting,Travis

    Can't help you with the Redfield mount, but I can offer some alternatives. Weaver made mounts for this model in a 2-piece configuration. Also, there was a base for the Sako/Browning roundtop made for the old Bausch & Lomb external adjusting scopes. This is a one-piece, though. Finally, Conetrol makes mounts for everything, and they are solid and look beautiful. They are, however, a hassle to install because of the ring configuration. To find the correct Redfield, Weaver, or B&L; mounts I would advise just hanging out at gun shows and check out all the dealers in old scopes and mounts. Also you might want to check the Gun List - there are some dealers in old scopes and mounts who advertise there. Good luck - I hope you find what you need. I've had a couple of Sako Brownings myself and I know mounts for them are hard to find.
