guess I'm the only renegade that uses the warne 1 piece weaver rail and burris sig zees then. I have this setup on (3) T3's and have no issues. I personally like the thought of screws holding vs a couple clamps. by the way OP I have the exact same scope you are receiving mounted with burris sig zee highs.

I like the integral rail on the Tikka. Unobtrusive, and Tikka still provides tapped holes that allow a full range of other options to suit a particular need.

But it would be REALLY nice if they chose to support their product by offering a range of ringmounts in standard heights to mount to the integral rail (their Optilock base/ring offering is a heavy weight abortion, and offers zero compared to many other available mounts).

I have owned my last Sako. Primarily due to the ejection problem, but also due to their limited and inflexible scope mounting options. Their system sucks, and they barely support it any better than Tikka does.

I have Burris Signature Zee rings with the two piece Burris Extreme Tactical bases clamping a Leupold VX5 HD 3-15x44 to my T3 .260 Rem-moor.

I like the looks of the Sportsmatch however.

Interesting some people's take on the OptiLocks. I've had a set on a Tikka 695 7mag for over 20 years now and it's rock solid.


There is nothing that enters a man from outside which can defile him; but the things which come out of him, those are the things that defile a man.

Not 20 years but about 4 years on a 06 Sako 75 , never ever an issue.

Are the SportsMatch rings you suggested for 40-42mm obj. mounted to the receiver or a picatinny rail?
