    Question 2-7x33 redfield revolution fittment

    The other night I fitted a 2-7x33 Revolution Redfield scope to my 336 in an attempt to prove the previously fitted scope to be the culprit in how the rifle shoots...6" plus at 100 off sandbags.

    I went with the Redfield as its one of the more common scopes i see fitted to or recommended on here for the 336....however when i tried to fit it with the weaver low rings i have, i found that the adjustment housing in the middle of the scope and the magnification adjustment ring fouled the weaver rail (63B)....is this a common issue? I have had a trawl through the old posts on here and can't find a reference to it happening.

    After finding that things interfered i used a die-grinder and files to clearance where stuff touched until i can freely turn the magnification adjuster and can see light through under the center housing on the scope with the rings locked down.

    Just kinda curious whether this is a known thing or i have used the wrong rings or something (the rings i have are weaver 1" low topmount SS)

    Cheers
    Callum

    I have used Weaver low height rings before with the Redfield Revolution and had no problems.

    I dislike those rings. The aluminum base is butter soft and easily damaged or stripped. The screws also love to rust the second a screwdriver puts the slightest scratch in them. And, of course, any bur in the strap will scratch the scope.

    When I use Weaver rings, I use the Grand Slam series. I have used both low and medium height, with a Redfield Revolution 2-7x, without issue. However, I do not recall which was used in combination with a standard 336 rail, and which was used with an RPP Rhino rail (original and BUIS version).

    I believe the standard Weaver 'low' rings sit just a bit lower than the Grand Slam 'low'.

    What base/rail are you using?

    Sorry for the delay on the pics....i had to wait till the kids were in bed or my 2 1/2 year old would want to "help"....(and who cares what this thing is, it has SCREWS and we know exactly what to do with screws)

    As you can see i had to file it down in the middle and use a die grinder to scallop out the rear end to clear the zoom ring....everything clears now.

    That right there is one of the reasons why I hate the 2-slot bases so much:

    The rings are stuck in whatever position the slots were cut, which ... more often than not ... doesn't work with whatever scope one is trying to mount.
    And, while I do prefer a once-piece base on Marlins, the extra slot is one of the benefits of the Warne bases.




    Also... Your serial number is visible.

    I have had to do the same thing with the Weaver low rings and several different scopes.It works.
