The other month we looked at a new 10MOA Picatinny rail for the CZ527 from Barton Gunworks; they also make for Savage, Anschutz, Sako and Remington. On test here is the short action unit for the Remy 700, though we fitted it to a Bergara B14 BMP. British-made from high grade aluminium alloy and anodised in satin black, it features a true MIL-STD-1913 (Picatinny) build. It’s for more longer range use where you might run out of elevation, inclining the base, means you have to lift the scope/rifle up to sight the target, thus gaining elevation adjustment. However, the 10MOA inclination will allow most scopes to still zero at 100 yards. The rail comes complete with four mounting screws and all Allen keys required. The fit is precise so it’s best to locate all screws loosely before tightening them up; you can feel the tight tolerances as you cinch it down, which gives confidence in its ability. To prove this we used Tier One rings and they went on with ZERO movement; so good enough! The area around the ejection port is cut out to the right so ejection, single loading and access to the magazine is not affected. Plus there’s an inch of rail that hangs over the barrel, which might suit some as to preferred eye relief. Both long and short action rails are available.
