See through rings

Discussion in 'Optics / Sights / Lasers / Lights' started by MotoMel, May 20, 2016.

  1. I have a new 995TS and acquired an older Weaver V7 scope with a Leopold ring attached. What I would like is a see through ring to mount the scope so the iron sights would be usable. Any information on a good height for the ring (1" diameter scope tube) would be appreciated. Also if you can recommend a specific mount it would also help me.

    This thread is a mess. Links to rings that won't fit the HP rails, no mention that most see through rings that tall would eliminate cheek weld entirely...

    I'm thinking this simply isn't a good way to go, as evidenced by the OP abandoning it.;)

    BTW, there used to be a mount made that was sheet metal, cut to clear the ejection port, drilled to use the shroud cover bolts to mount to the gun, and bent to provide a flat surface above the OEM sights, with a rail attached there.

    I've got one.:)
