Picatinny rail consists of slots with 5.23 mm spaces between one another, which means that it can be used across its entire length. It is simple to mount and interchangeable – if something is made for a Picatinny rail, it will fit regardless of the manufacturer or manufacturing date. It is affordable, resilient and reliable – this is why it so commonly used by professionals and military. Because of all its great qualities, Picatinny rail has been dominating the rail market in the recent years.
Picatinny is a big step forward from the Weaver standard. Weaver has a few predesignated slots while Picatinny has slots all over its surface, allowing the device to be mounted wherever the user finds it fitting. Weaver's slot is 3.8 mm wide, which is why all mounts made for Picatinny will also fit on a Weaver rail while those made for Weaver will not fit on a Picatinny rail. This is one of the main reasons why Picatinny is a far better mounting solution.
EAW is a German company, known for producing top-quality mounts. Their Picatinny rails, which are all made from steel, have a nice finish and come with a unique channel in the middle, allowing the user to clearly see the rifle's sights. Screws are included. EAW chooses only the best materials for their products. All of these great features; however, come at quite a steep price.
Remington arms was founded in 1816 when Eliphalet Remington made a flintlock rifle with a firing mechanism. Remington is possibly the oldest gun maker in America that still produces its original product guns. They produce firearms, ammunition and other accessories. Remington model 700 and model 870 are among the best selling firearms of all time. The company is also known for the development of more cartridges than any other company in the world.
Remington 600 was manufactured from 1964 to 1967. It is a bolt-action rifle with a push-feed action system. It can be chambered for these calibers: .35 Rem., .222 Rem., .223 Rem., 6mm Rem., 6.5 mm Rem. Mag., .243 Win., .308 Win. and .350 Rem. It has one hole on the back side of the action and two holes on the front side. Approximately 94.000 pieces were made.
Remington 600 Mohawk's action is of same dimensions as the standard 600 model. It was manufactured from 1972 to 1979 and was chambered for the same calibers as 600.
Remington 660 was introduced as a redesign of model 600. Primary changes were the elimination of the ventilated rib and barrel increase. Remington 660 was also available in „Magnum“ version. It was designed with a 6-shot magazine. Its overall length is 98.4 cm while its weight is about 2.9 kg. Model 660 was chambered in .222 Remington, .223 Remington, .243 Winchester, 6 mm Remington, 6.5 mm Rem. Mag., .308 Winchester and .350 Rem. Mag. The ejection port is on the right side of the rifle. The dimensions of the action (and the distances between mounting holes) are the same as on 600 and 600 Mohawk.
A: 22 mm
B: 92.2 mm
Remove all the stains (grease, oil etc.) from the rifle's receiver with a cleaning fluid (acetone). Once the surface is clean and dry, check whether the screws match the rail and the holes on the receiver. Make sure that the Picatinny rail is compatible with the rifle by inspecting the mounting holes on both. Before mounting the rail permanently, apply a minimal amount of thread-locking fluid 278 or 648 on screws and contact surfaces. Be careful not to get the fluid in or near the mounting holes. Carefully clean the remaining excess fluid around the rail with a cleaning fluid. Using a torque driver, screw the screws appropriately (up to 2.2 Nm) – do not overtighten.
The product has a warranty period of 30 years.

A, B and C markings refer to the distances between holes on the rail/mount. A is the distance between the front two holes on the rail/mount.
A, B and C markings refer to the distances between holes on the rail/mount. B is the distance between the holes in the middle (usually, that is the distance between the 2nd and 3rd hole on the rail/mount).
A, B and C markings refer to the distances between holes on the rail/mount. C is the distance between the rear two holes on the rail/mount.
BH stands for Bauhöhe (ger.) which means overall height. It is measured from the mounting surface of the rifle to the lower surface of the riflescope's tube.
Often, the elevation adjustment that the riflescope offers is not adequate to compensate for the bullet drop when shooting at long range. When the riflescope runs of out of elevation, a mount with an inclination is needed. 20 MOA is the most common inclination. With it, the user gains 58.2 cm / 100 m of additional elevation range when shooting at the range of 100 m. This is approx. 5.8 Mrad of elevation.
