    Nightforce Unimount

    I just purchased a Nightforce Unimount to attach my Nightforce 3.5-15x56 to a Rem 700P LTR. If the Unimount has 20 M.O.A of taper built into it, which base should I use on the rifle?

    Will there be any potential negatives to having a 20 M.O.A base under the 20 M.O.A Unimount?

    Thanks.

    Other than your scope being pretty high, shouldn't be a problem.

    Unimounts and other mounts of that type I think are more for AR's and other perimeter defence carbines. I wouldn't use anything but rings and bases to get as low as possible ona bolt gun, but that's just me

    Just found out that Badger Ordnance makes a Zero Cant base and I ordered it up from Brownells. I will return with a full report and photos.

    You do realise NF makes different height Unimounts ??

    Granted I much rather used a tapered base and standard rings, but my AIEI came with a O MOA base. It was easier to put the slope in the ring / mount

    I ended up with a Unimount because the other taper one piece ring I tired ( NEAR ) was to low. The Unimount 1.125" was just right. As you can see form the pic, the 56mm objective of the NSX just clears

    Thanks.


    Yes.
    20MOA + 20MOA = 40MOA

    Unless you mount the unimount backwards, then 20MOA + -20MOA = Zero MOA or straight.

    This would not be a problem. He would still be able to achieve a 100yrd zero with 40MOA.

    Re: Nightforce Unimount

    Trg42 - Thanks for the pic! I need to check the height of my Unimount, but that is what I hope my rig comes out like.

    The Unimount was an impulse buy, I got 10% of my NXS and they offered the same deal on the Unimount...so I bought both.

    If it doesn't play out, I guess I'll have to buy another AR-10 to use it on...that sucks

    I should have pics up this week sometime.

    Hi just to let you know you forgot to hide the gun number on the bolt.

    Re: Nightforce Unimount

    I finally got the scope mounted and took it to the range. It does sit a little higher than I would have liked, but I have the Karsten cheek piece in the mail so I want to see how that feels before I swap it out for standard rings. The base of the scope sits 5/16" off the barrel which isn't too bad.

    Because the Unimount has 20 MOA built into it, I used a Zero Cant Badger Ordnance base.

    Re: Nightforce Unimount

    Here is a picture of the third 5 shot group out of the gun today and ever (first time shot)...



    Not bad for a stock Remington LTR. However, it did almost take two fingers to pull back the trigger...HEAVY. That is the next evening project.

    Thanks for all of your thoughts.
