    Fitting the rifle. (CZ 452)

    I just attended my first Project Appleseed event over the weekend with a brand new CZ 457 Synthetic SR and VX-Freedom 1.5-4 scope.

    The factory rifle LOP is 14.25, I'm 6'9".

    Even with the scope mounted full forward, I found I was too close to the scope and getting significant shadow, especially in prone. After TD1, I picked up a 1" LimbSaver pad, which helped, but still wasn't enough. Of course, it was squishy and moved side to side.

    Any leads on a product that will add an additional 1.5-2" of LOP? I assume the least expensive method would be some sort of buttstock spacer.
    Is there a better way of solving this problem, like moving the scope forward? I could probably afford to go a bit higher on the scope.

    I prefer not to invest a bunch of money into this rifle. Also, I know virtually nothing about rifles, so let me know if I'm asking the wrong questions or attacking this wrong.

    The 11mm dovetail is the sticking point I think. Iíve seen 1 and 2 piece mounts that push the scope forward but theyíre all Weaver or Pic rail. The easiest thing I can think of offhand would be to pick up a 12Ē undrilled piece of Pic rail from EGW and have it mounted to the rifle at full length. Work out the eye relief and then have the rail cut to the length you need.

    All generalizations are incorrect, including this one.

    Get yourself an 11mm to picatinny adapter like this:

    Then get a low + extreme cantilever AR scope mount like this:

    With that you may have to put a stock pack on to raise the comb depending on our cheekweld.

    These are the best 11mm rings I've found. I still do some work on them, but they're closer to right than anything else I've found:

    I have a stack of rimfire rings that don't work like revolver guys have stocks and everyone has holsters.

    Not sure if it'll help @David S, but just putting it out there.

    At 6'4", I also have some issues with factory LOP on my CZs. I've done the Limbsaver slip-on thing and so far it's OK.

    I have a Savage FV-SR that I money-pitted with a custom LOP Boyd's stock, but I'm so upside down on that gun now it's ridiculous.

    Current strategy is just buy a T1X when prices come back down.

    Current situation on Talley rings. Not sure switching to OLongís rings will solve anything.

    Iíll look at the other options for moving the scope up and forward
