The Tikka Optilock mount keep the scope centered in all conditions. The scope rests in the grip of a revolutionary ball-bearing type ring. Unlike conventional mounts, the Optilock’s polymer rings distribute the clasping force evenly along the scope shaft, ensuring that your valuable optics will not be twisted or scratched. With Optilock mounts, the scope and mounts are easily mounted and removed as one unit without affecting the point of impact. The limiter pin in the mount base and the limiter pin slot on the receiver enable fast and accurate remounting of the scope/mount unit and guarantee stability of mounting. Optilock bases and rings are machined from a solid block of CR-Mo Alloy or stainless steel. The base design with its clamping device connects to the Tikka T3 rifle’s integral dovetail rail on the receiver.
