Mounting a railed scope to a Sako or Tikka using Optilock bases

Optilock do not offer a system for rail mounted scopes but there is a solution for users of Sako and Tikka rifles. Recknagel, a German manufacturer of high quality mounts, make dovetail attachment that is a perfect fit on the OPTILOCK bases made for Tikka and Sako rifles. Parts are available in BLUE finish only but can be used with stainless bases if required.

Parts can be found on page 11 of Recknagel catalogue 8.

The part numbers are as follow:

Zeiss rail 49045-0600
Swarovski rail 49053-0500
Schmidt&Bender rail 49067-0300

Parts are supplied and priced per each, unlike mounts which are supplied in pairs. If a pair is required the order must specify this.

I found out this when a friend of mine bought a Zeiss V8 railed scope and it was really hard to find a good mount with low barrel height...

Here is how it looks on a Sako 85L:
