School me on scopes and rings for the new CZ 512 I just bought
« on: December 10, 2018, 12:13:44 AM »
I just ordered a CZ 512 American in 22WMR.  This one has a black polymer stock set and a 16" threaded barrel with no iron sights.  I purchased it to bridge the gap between 22LR and 223Rem.  I'd expect shots between 50yds and 200yds on my property with 100yds being average.  I need to put a scope on this rifle, but I honestly don't know anything about rimfire scopes.  The only one that I have is a cheap Chinese 4X that's on my Ruger 10/22.  I did some internet searching and found that 11mm base rings are not so common.  People had both good and bad things to say about the factory CZ rings, so I figured that I'd hold off on them until I decide on a scope.  I know this is pretty open ended, but I'd appreciate suggestions on both rings and scopes.

This dovetail to picatinny mount might be of interest to you.

I have tried a few options with my CZs:  Warne rimfire rings (QD) mounted directly on dovetail, DIP rail, and finally settle on cheapo B-Square dovetail-to-Weaver adaptor.   

The B-square does not add much height and it is tighty-tight!   I can use regular weaver QD rings on my scopes, and swap scopes among my rifles (centerfire included) with ease.

These B-Square are cheap, give them a try, throw them away if you don’t, nothing to lose ...  but I think you’ll be happy.

As for scope, there are plenty good scopes out there at all price ranges.   How much do you want to spend?

Plus 1 one the Leupold 3-9x33 EFRs. Very versatile optics.
