Category of Bases and Rails contains all the items that are mounted directly on the rifle and are a middle part between the rifle and a scopes mount.
The main groups of this category are:
• Picatinny rails (one piece, full length),
• Weaver bases (two separate plates),
• All other types of bases, mostly brand specific.
No matter what type of bases you are looking at, there is always one main dilemma that needs to be solved before placing an order. Should you choose an one-piece base/rail or two separate pieces of bases? The one-piece rails that cover the entire lenght of the rifle action are easier to mount, more robust and offer better alignment between the front and rear ring.
Two piece bases on the other hand offer nicer looks (more elegant), more arangement possibilities and more space for loading/unloading ammunition in the action. They are also lighter. When mounting is done by an experienced professional than the two piece bases can be a good alternative, however if you would like to mount the base yourself and if you are searching for the most reliable solution, we have to recommend the one-piece mounting rails.
Picatinny rail standard is becoming the most popular mounting solution on the market and we presume that this trend will prevail in the future.
