    Looking for people to chime in on scope mounts fro muzzle loaders. I got a deal on a Nikon Omega scope, and am looking for a good mount setup for it. ( I also need the rifle...but thats another story.) I have seen the Gorilla Grips, but I don't know enough to judge for myself. I was hoping to get some opinions on this.

    Thanks

    One of the problems reported by some with the Nikon Omega Extended Eye Relief scope and the Talley one piece scope mount sold by Cabela's is not being able to mount the scope forward enough because of the scope's extended eye relief. That may or may not be a problem for you, but the DNZ Products Extended Eye Relief Mount #14 & #16 allows the scope to be mounted forward more.

    The DNZ Products 1 piece medium mount model #16 is 1/8" higher than their low model #14:

    Make sure that you read all of the Cabela's reviews for the Talley base & the Omega rifle before you decide to buy one. There's mixed reviews, but one of the reviews in particular from 9/25/2007 by "NCBOB from NC" states:

    Talley's website lists the height measurement for their Omega bases:

    Here's a simple Weaver base from Cabela's:

    Thanks for the info. I would not have even thought about accomadating for the eye relief. You saved me some headaches frm buying the wrong mount.

    If you're hunting in the cold weather, you may be wearing a heavy jacket and vest which may also affect the eye relief.

    It also affects the length of pull for me so I even try to put a jacket on when I buy an expensive gun or set up the scope.
    That's why I like the extended eye relief scopes, so then I can still see through it when I'm wearing a heavy jacket.

    Good luck and let us know how it shoots! :)

    My Triumph wears a standard non-adjustable Leupold base, properly torqued down, and 1" Leupold lapped rings, and a Leupold ML Scope. While its not a rifle, ML's still can kick and its worth the time to get a good, solid setup.

    Also I had a DNZ 1 peice of my t3 7mm. Good money invested until I got a 30 mm scope-
