    generally speaking, yes, you'll have a slight variation based on wall thickness differences, but they'll be the samr, give or take a couple mm.

    That's a serious setup

    All it needs is an atlas bipod and a tab biathalon sling

    Here is my MVP 5.56 Patrol: Bushnell, AR Optics, 3-9 40mm, BDC reticle. Weaver Tactical Rings, 1" high. I like my scopes mounted low and had to remove the William's rear sight leaf.

    The turrets are 1/4 MOA clicks. The reticle has dots for ranges out to 500 yards for elevation for 55 - 62 grain bullets. So far I have only shot it at 100 yards to get it zeroed and for some practice. I'll take it out to 200 yards in a couple of weeks when I get back to the range.

    What are people's opinions on going for an all in one mount like an ADM's Recon vs rings on a 7.62 Varmint?

    Is the Recon mount plus the 20MOA EGW rail I have coming going to place my scope too high?

    Scope is a Vortex Viper PST 4-16x50 FFP.

    Thanks

    The one piece mount on top of the EGW rail will likely require a comb extension on the stock. I'm running the EGW 20 moa base on a 308 Varmint with EGW's 0.860" rings and a SS 5-20 which is just a little larger than the PST in every dimension. It clears with enough room for scope covers, but I mount my scopes pretty far forward. It's about as high as it can go and still get a decent cheek weld with the MVP stock. It depends on your shooting style and the dimensions of your head too. The 30mm ADM recon lists a similar dimension at 1.470", so to get the same cheek weld I'd need a 1/2-3/4" comb extension.

    Thanks for the reply Shaun, much appreciated.

    I'd prefer to run as close to factory a cheek weld as possible i.e. avoid having to fit a riser. Do you thing that the 30mm Recon SL (lowest model) would work for me at 1.110'? My biggest concern is whether the bells either end of the optics would clear the rail and action mounted on these low mounts??

    Specs are:

    EGW Rail: 6.670" long and these bases sit at approximately 0.35” high.

    Recon specs see below (AD-RECON-SL):

    Sorry to be a pain in the a$$ but there isn't anywhere I can go that has all these items and taking a gamble on my own average calculations could prove costly considering how much postage from the States is... I really appreciate everyones help... Cheers

    With the low EGW rings that give 0.860" for that mount "A" dimension, I have ~0.160" up front, and had to modify the back of the rail to get the scope far enough forward. The scope is a SWFA SS5-20x50. I used a mill on the back of the rail. If you don't have access to a mill, a patient guy with a file could do just as nice a job. All I needed to do was remove the last lug, but this is a little cleaner.

    This is the limit for me w/o a comb riser of some sort. Your shooting style and position will vary.

    I stumbled upon this thread through a Google search for MVP Varmint scope mounting, as I had the exact questions which were answered by this thread. Figured it was only fair I contribute back into it.

    MVP 5.56 Varmint with Nikon M-223 NP 3x12x42 on Millet low rings.

    I just recently upgraded from my Crossfire II scope to a 6.5-20×44 Viper PA with the mil dot.

    Absolutely love it. Great scope IMG_2014110559760.jpg

    The Predator has a Sightron 4x12-40 S1H-TAC mil dot AO, mounted in UGT quick release rings. Scope works great, mount is very solid

    Was unhappy with the fit and finish of the Millett scope rings. So I ordered a set of Leupold PRW low rings.

    Mine is the 7.62 MVP with 20" sporter barrel. I mounted a Vortex Crossfire II, Dead-Hold BDC Reticle 6-18x44 scope with sunshade using Leopold rings and stock bases. I have near zero clearance, I had to file down the bottom of the bikini cover to get it to go on. I had the dealer mount the scope and boresight it, although it was a waste of time, the objective bell actually rubbed the barrel at the lower end of adjustment. Good thing the eye relief suited me better with it moved forward which cured the rubbing issue. Tightened it down, boresighted and was 1.5 at 100 yds before zeroing it. Very nice, clear scope.

    Well guys I am new here and just set up my MVP Vermint in 5.56/.223 and took the scope they sent with it and took it off and put it on a .22 of mine as that is all it was good for. Plus that is where I put the bi-pod also. My rings are Burris Hi mounts and the scope is aSightron III 10-50x60 ⅛ MOA. The bi-pod is from Mystic Performance a real nice and rigid pod. And weighs like 11 oz. Now just to hit the range here as soon as the monsoons quit. But, looking forward to making up some nice loads that will take me out to 600 Meters. The only complaint is the scope and pod everything else looks 1st Class.

    IMAG6295 1 (2).jpg Got back out to the range today. First day a couple of weeks ago was a bust. Make sure that if you buy one of these you remove the scope ring bases and locktite the screws. Mine started loosening up on me but I could not see it. Could tell something was wrong by the way the groups opened up. Got swapped scopes and still could not really see the bases move but they were. After coming home I just stuck the rifle in the gun cabinet. A few days later I pulled it out and was just holding it and then started flipping it up and down while holding the stock. I could feel something moving and could finally verify the scope was moving.
    Any hoo.
    Current set up is with a Barska Varmint 6-24x42 AO Model AC10046 Mil Dot. For a cheap scope this thing is really solid. Clarity is really good and adjustments are correct.
    Stock scope bases. (With Locktite added)

    Shooting today was 47deg F with 10-15 mph winds.
    Shot a few different rounds will post up in another. 5 shot groups. The American Eagle Green Tip was the Best Along with the ZQ1 62gn.
