  • Trying to ID a scope base

    Maybe somebody here can help. Have a one piece base, Leupold style but marked with a circled R. Only other marking is a 70A on the bottom. Redfield? The 70A is the thing I can't document, I assume it is a short action post 64 model 70. Anybody have any other ideas? Can post some pictures if needed.

        Yep Redfield base.

        I wonder if you have the base and no rings? The rings have the screws for the top half coming from the bottom up instead of the top down. I finally gave up trying to work with these on my last scope mount.

          Have the rings as well. Now need to figure if it is a long or short action. Can't find dimensions online, even on Redfield's website

              I'm thinking long action, eh?

                well, it appears that the short action would be marked SA.

                  The70-A was made from about 71 to 78.They had less polish a blind box magazine and a plastic triggerguard on a checkered walnut stock. Mine is a long action and I believe it would fit a stock with a box mag and a floor plate. It fit perfectly in a black shadow stock.

                    No box. Looks like it's for a long (standard) action Model 70. Sure wish the tables and charts on all the websites had picture or better descriptions. At least the Weaver bases have model numbers and charts!
