hrmmmm ... ok well i think i wouldn't cast it becuase too hard for me and i haven't done it before .. but i do live in Aus :) an ther is a new Bunnings that was made about 2 km away :D

hrmm it cant be square becuase the rail need to be like a H shape sorta so the grip things can fit int the gaps if that makes sense ...
(i have tried making 2 outta of tube and a square)

now thinking of it , casting one would be ideal well all in all great suggestions :) keep them coming .haha

casting is easythe first cast i did was a 2-1 foot heat sink and i think that a heat sink is harder than a rail mount

Scope Mount

Unread postAuthor: Procyon » Fri Dec 04, 2009 8:58 am

Never mind the elevation adjustment in the pic below. If you look at how the scope is mounted to the adjustment you'll see that all it is just a piece of flat bar with 2 spacers. The bar is cut to the width and length of the scope mount.
