A twice longer J-Meck

Postby Johann_Schmidt » Thu Nov 06, 2014 1:54 pm

Created this tonight.

- removed the rear sight base
- hacksawed a Hawke 11mm scope ring base (it had a vertical 5mm screw hole and thread already in place)
- Bought a 25cm long Weaver without any holes or cuts
- Removed the original (10.15cm long) J-Meck steel rail
- Drilled three 5mm holes in the new rail and attached it
- Filed cuts for the ring base screws
- cut it down to 19 cm
- attached a 6-25x50mm chinese scope, which was the whole reason for this project. I figured it's so heavy and big it WILL flex too much in recoil.

Testfiring next saturday.

Nicely Done. Thinking outside the box is always a good thing.

A twice longer J-Meck

I emailed jmeck already before posting here.

The rail is fantastic, the scope sucked. I need a better scope. Blurry, fuzzy, shady image on all zoom levels.
While saving money for a Leupold, Meopta, Vortex or similar mid-priced scope, I will be using the fixed 10x Konuspro.
