will the nxs compact fit on the sako 85
thank you! sounds like its not worth getting this rifle since im looking to put this scope on a new gunI have a Sako 85 Carbonlight short action 6.5. With Optiliocks (the ones with bases) not the ringmounts I can't get the scope back far enough. I have an NXS 2.5-10x42. Just replaced it with a Tangent Theta TT 315m.
I had the front base flush with the Ejection port. Ringmounts may buy you enough mounting length because I think they give you a few extra millimeters in front without the base. But you have to be mindful that windage is effected with those mounts and they may not work out ideal flush with the ejection port.
