Scope mount?

Postby allen308 on Thu 10 Feb, 2011 11:27 am

Just ordered a new U.S. Optics 5-25X58mm with 35mm tube T-Pal scope for my 98B. I am thinking I want to use a QD type mount. Any input on who makes the best that will hold this scope. It seems that the 35mm tube and T-Pal feature makes my choices limited. I love the mount made by Aadland Engineering called the Aadmount but at this time they do not offer a model that fits my scope. Any help would be appreciated.

I have never been a fan of QD mounts, but let me know how that US Optic scope holds up. I have had my hands on several and all of them have failed. Even had one that wouldn't adjust immediately after mounting the rings.

Wow, thats the first bad report from anybody on the U.S. Optics products. Do you have a preference to scope brands?

S&B, Nightforce and Leupold all have some good scopes. I am sure others do too but I don't have any hands on experience with them
