Seeking advice on a set of scope rings or mounts that will allow me to put a 50mm scope on my V2. I have the durasight mount system from CVA but it will only allow a 40mm scope without hitting the barrel.

Is there a see through scope ring available for the V2 that will allow you to put a 50mm and still allow you to look under the scope?

I recently saw a hunting show and the person had what looked like the durasight system with a 50mm scope. Maybe she had a shim of some sort to lift it up.

I have a nice 50mm Leupold scope to use , so Im thinking it would be cheaper to buy different scope rings then a new 40mm scope.

any advice.

The problem I have with big scopes is the distance your cheek is off the stock. The thumbhole stock has a higher comb. Do you have that?

You might check Talley mounts. They might have a high version for the V2.

No thumbhole stock here, I will look at that Talley option. Worse case I will have to invest in a new 40mm scope.

I guess i have always used a larger 50mm and it feels strange going to a smaller one. I tried an old 33mm scope on there and it just didnt feel comfortable at all.


Thanks for the input

I see now where that you can order the durasight deadon mount in a high version that will fit the 50mm scope. I guess I did not specify and they sent me the medium height one that only fits a 40mm scope.

My bad on this one.


I will try to swap out and get the higher set mount so that I can use my 50mm scope that i am comfortable with.

Thanks for the input from everyone.

KraQr4x4,

I have a 3x9x50mm Nikon Prostaff mounted on my CVA Kodiak. I use the WEAVER Stainless Steel HIGH Rings on a one-piece rail... No problems ever.

I'm a big fan of a quality Weaver style base and a set of Burris Signature Zee rings.
