    XT-22 Scope mounts

    I just purchased an XT-22 and I would like to get scope mount bases for it prior to picking it up. I can not find any information at all on this subject. Any one have any information ?

    Re: XT-22 Scope mounts

    You need 2 Weaver top mount #12 bases. I got mine from Midway...

    See the Weaver application chart on their site.
    Weaver bases with Lupy rings on my XT22...

    Another thing to consider is the size of scopes ocular and power ring. If your rings are to low the bolt won't clear them if they are large.
    The DIP rail is a nice option as well...

    I have one on one of my Savage MKII'S and like it...

    Another rail I have is this Kwik Site, happy with it as well...

    As you can see, lots of options.
    You'll love that rifle, mines a great shooter! Best of luck.

    Re: XT-22 Scope mounts

    I understand the 12 Scope mounts you can get from Midway, but how do you know what Rings to purchase. I'm interested in getting the Weaver RV9. Does anyone know what rings I would need to purchase for the XT22 Bolt Gun? Any help would be appreciated.

    the size of the rings depends on the size of the scope you are going to mount. I just installed 1 inch medium burris zee rings for a 3-9 40mm nikon scope. the medium rings give me plenty of clearance so the bolt handle does not hit the scope. I tried using rimfire rings on the dovetail base, but I was unable to zero the rifle. I think there is a manufacturing defect with the dovetail. Once I installed the #12 weaver bases and the new rings I was right on the paper. I have never had so much trouble zeroing a rifle as this one. I purchased a tube fed xt-22, so far I have not been impressed. Hopefully when the weather is better I will get it dialed in and it will be a tack driver.

    #12 mounts work perfectly.

    They have standard dovetailed mounts on top, however, if you want to put on a rail, you will need special rails! It is not a flat topped receiver. It is round on top, so a standard dovetail/weaver mount will not work. I used short pieces of adapters that worked fine and raised the scope just right to clear the barrel, with medium height scope rings.

    I believe the XT-22 has the same bolt action receiver that Marlin has used in all their bolt guns, since... a very long time ago. Decades. At this point, Marlin's owner's manual is just for "the bolt action Marlin", regardless of which one you bought.
    Costco should sell bullets in those bins, like walnuts. Or you could buy two five gallon buckets of bullets, shrink-wrapped together.

    Your single post here has helped me so much starting out trying to find mounts and scope rings! Thanks so much it was a blessing! I have purchased two #12 Weaver mounts and Zee rings that fit absolutely perfect on my XT-22! Now I'm just waiting for my scope to come in and shoot my gun!!!
