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 ring mounts made for a Weaver rail will also fit on a Picatinny rail while ring mounts made specifically for a Picatinny rail will not fit on a Weaver 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.
Verney-Carron is the largest and the oldest French hunting rifle manufacturer. Claude Verney founded the company in 1820. During World War II, they produced tennis and fishing equipment along with manufacturing firearms. Jean Verney, who currently owns the company, is assumed to belong to the 10th generation of Verney gun-makers (Guy Verney is said to have been making shotguns back in 1650)).
Verney-Carron Impact is a pump-action rifle that can be chambered for the following calibers: 7x64, .300 Win Mag, 9,3x62 (3-shot magazine only), .30-06, .7mm Rem Mag, and .308 Win., (it can also be chambered for .243 Win. on request). The total length of the rifle is 107 cm (Tracker – 102 cm). The rifle is equipped with high-precision striped 55 cm beat barrel (or 47 cm (tracker)) with a 6-lugs lock mechanism. The action features 2 piston ejectors. The action is rounded on the top – there are 4 holes drilled onto its top (2 holes front, two back). The ejection chamber has a metal bridge over it and both parts are leveled in the same height.
A: 22 mm
B: 97 mm
C: 13 mm
BHU: 1.5 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.
