Mount FAQs

We do not recommend using Quick Disconnect products with our tactical scope mounts. They WILL shear the top of the lugs off. We only recommend using quick disconnects with our HD line of rails.

Will This Mount Fit My Receiver?
We manufacture all of our Scope Mounts to precisely fit factory specifications. Each Scope Mount we manufacture is particular to that specific action / receiver.
(For example: A Winchester mount will not work with a Montana Long Action receiver. A Remington Short Action Mount will not fit a Howa / Weatherby Vanguard 1500 Action)

The quickest and simplest way to see if our Scope Mount will fit on your action / receiver is to measure the two middle holes on your receiver center to center as shown in the diagram below. Calipers are suggested for measuring but the nearest 1/16” on a ruler or tape measurer will do.

I have purchased a mount from one of your vendors and there is a problem (screws are missing/I’ve received the wrong mount/I am dissatisfied). What are my options?
At EGW, we stand behind our products and will do what we can to ensure that you are as satisfied with them as we are. If you purchase your mount from one of our vendors, we do recommend that you try to resolve any issue with the directly. If you determine that you have received the incorrect size/length screws in a mount that you have purchased from a vendor, please contact us with the model of the mount, and we will be happy to send replacements out to you. We are happy to assist with determining which of our products you require, and will provide what support we can, regardless of where the product has been purchased.

I would like to use Weaver rings on my Picatinny base. Where do I mount them?
To properly mount weaver style rings on picatinny bases, push the weaver rings as far forward in the lug as possible. The front of the ring crossbolt should be pushed up against the back of the lug in front of it. This will keep the rings from moving during recoil.
