    Not sure what diameter the tube is on your scope is but there is a pair of Sako "Made in Spain" rings on eBay right now.

    I've got a pair of these and buiIMO theld quality is as good as the Finland built rings.

    Thanks

    There are probably over a dozen brands/types of scope mounts which fit the Sako Tapered Dovetails. Most of them are excellent. Some are no longer made but can be found on ebay or Gunbroker.

    The simplest and most readily available is probably the Leupold ringmount, which is carried by nearly every supplier which handles any kind of scope mount. All of the online stores have them, and they are available in four heights and two tube diameters.

    There are many others which work as well; personal preferences and aeshetics vary, but with very few exceptions one will do the job as well as another. Just look for any ring/mount which is made for the Sako Tapered Dovetail (its the same mounting system from the original L-46 to the current Model 85, with a couple of oddball exceptions like the M7 and L581).

    I use Talley bases and rings on my 264’s. I gave up on the Leupold years ago. Talleys are better and much lighter.

    Even though everyone knows I'm a bit of a Conetrol fan.......

    A few years ago I considered the Talley's......but could not get past the "dove-tail mount on-top-of a dove-tail receiver"........thing.

    edit: Does Talley now offer paired single rings with Sako dove-tails?

    Doesn't look like it. According to their product list, the only Talley option for Sako rifles is to use the bases that slide onto the Sako tapered dovetail and are secured with vertical screws against the top of the receiver. I fully agree with your point about not wanting to add bases to the already-present Sako tapered dovetail bases.

    It does seem a bit excessive to put a base on top of a base. I did, however, have a Talley setup on an FN-Sako for a while. That's a round top action so I had to have a base. My preference for a QD setup on a Sako is the Warne, which is vertically split like the Talley and clamps directly onto the Sako dovetail. They are discontinued and not always easy to find, but they work great and are simple and light.
