Scope Mounts | New England Custom Gun Service, Ltd.
How important is a scope mount?
Even an inexpensive factory rifle will shoot accurately and reliably, IF you use the very best, most appropriate mounts and scope you can afford.
We recommend EAW and Recknagel (ERA) mounts for that reason. They are precision machined in Germany, using only the highest quality steel.
Of particular interest are the EAW "Quick-Loc" and Recknagel "Classic Steel" detachable pivot mounts. These allow the serious hunter to mount different scopes on the same gun. The hunter can then easily switch scopes to adapt to different situations—to be prepared with a backup scope as an insurance policy, to quickly switch to open sights, to have different scopes sighted in for different bullet weights, or to install a peep sight for hunting dangerous game.
These detachable mounts also allow you to remove your scope and pack it more securely when traveling. The adjustments on the mount insure stress-free mounting, and their remarkable precision guarantees a return to absolute zero every time.
The "Quick-Loc", "Classic Steel" and EAW''s Fixed Magnum Mount are designed to withstand the pounding produced by heavy caliber rifles.
We recommend these mounts as some of the best insurance you can have for an important hunting trip. If your rifle isn't shooting as well as it should, perhaps we have the solution.
Relieve stress to get the most out of your scope.
When using mounts with limited or no adjustment capabilities, with a European OR domestic scope, you might "luck out" in your mounting. Chances are, though, that you will run out of adjustment range in the scope and fall short when sighting in or be disappointed in the accuracy your gun produces. All of the problems can be eliminated by using a fully adjustable, "stress-free" scope mount.
This means no more shimming or refitting of the scope bases to achieve a level scope. The rear ring also has windage adjustment. If your reticle is centered in the scope prior to mounting, you can use the mount itself to achieve up to 95% of the collimating, leaving your scope with all its available adjustment range. It will also limit the number of clicks yo need to sight in, allowing you to get the most out of your scope. Quick-Loc models and pricing
