6718Re: LXD55 and ZS80 question ( mounting solution for WO scopes)
- Jan 4, 2006Raul-
Nice product (and an attractive sale price!) I took a look at it when
I was looking for mounting options for my WO scopes. Do you have a
version that matches the "newer" WO L brackets? Both of my scopes
came with two holes already tapped on the L bracket, your 4" and 6"
rails provide for one threaded hole and one unthreaded post. I assume
this matches an older style of L bracket or I could be misreading the
info. What I would be very interested in is an adapter with two
threaded screws to allow for a more secure attachment. Thanks.
