    These are so common, why is it so hard to find bases labeled for it? :cuss:

    Anyway, after my first 25-yard dime-sized groups with open sights, I've decided I can do even better if I can actually see the exact dot I'm aiming at.

    Anyone know of mounts not labeled for it that will work?

    My Mark II just has running grooves cut into the receiver so I can use any rimfire rings. Yours doesn't have that? Is yours drilled for regular bases/rings?

    Mine is a new el-cheapo non-accutrigger (one heck of a stiff trigger!), non-accustock model. I was surprised to find that, no, it doesn't have the usual 3/8" rimfire dovetail along the top. Smooth radius.

    It does have factory-drilled holes for bases, though.

    not sure, my buddies mk ii came with bases installed. I am not actually sure if he can remove them if he wanted to.

    I couldn't find a base listed on the warnes chart.

    A google search came up with a calguns forum thread with people posting a few different options...

    1) http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct/?productnumber=401293 is listed as working with Mark II

    2) http://egw-guns.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=280
    looks like overkill, but read the bottom part, says only works with certain models

    Mine has these grooves also, where the heck can you find rimfire rings?

    The weaver bases come on the rifle from the factory, the ones in the link above will work:)

    You can get the EGW bases for any configuration available. Just measure your ejection port. I think the new MKII's with the "E" receiver have a longer ejection port and will need the model 93 mount.

    Or you can call Savage and order the factory two piece mounts.

    I had a hard time finding bases for one of mine. They appear to be supplied from the factory in one of three ways:

    -Grooved receiver- use rimfire rings
    -Receiver drilled and tapped, supplied with Weaver style bases
    -Receiver drilled and tapped, but no bases

    One of mine was supplied with the last option. Weaver does list bases specifically for the Mark II and a separate set for the 17 cal Model 93 even though the outward appearances are the same. The model 93 bases are easier to find around here, and that is the route that I went, but I've had trouble with both scopes that I've installed on that gun.

    Mine came with rings, but I know walmart sells some.
