MR1 rifle scope mounting ?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have experience mounting a standard rifle scope on the MR1?

 

I have read that due to the height of the rear factory sight, the scope must be mounted well above the normal sight plane. This would prevent normal cheek weld and stock positioning when sighting through the scope.

 

Is it possible to remove the factory rear sight to allow normal positioning of the scope? Would the integral front ramp sight interfere with the scope's line of sight?

Great. Got two answers. One on the forum, one by email. One says the rear sight is easily removed. The other says can't be done.

 

Is there a Benelli employee out there who reads these posts?

Hi tcutlermd and welcome to the forum. Does the manual have the exploded parts diagram?

 

If it shows two screws being used to secure the rear sight like Tucker mentioned, it would seem like removing them would produce the desired result. I can't see it being unremovable unless it's welded on there.

 

If you don't have the parts breakdown diagram. Numrich may offer it in their schematics section.

 

What kind of scope do you want to mount?

 

Later,

 

Hookster :)
