It's the old dampa mount conundrum, its' design limitations don't lend itself well to heavy/high mag scope applications. I'd like to see what some people came up with, as a "crutch" or a permanent fix that allows scope mounting flexibility and reliability.

Pls share your thoughts and pics if you can! IIRC, AZ has made a custom rail?

Hector Medina also modifies and sells them for the Diana 54/56 platform.

They should hold up just fine on an SLR

Stay well

Yes, it's been a while! Nice to see you here bud. I still remember our epic FT migration to Oregon for the 2012 Nats, what a blast!

Interesting mount (funky concept!), but it won't work for the SLR as it has the proprietary Dampa mount base.

Cheers,
J

(yes indeed Oregon NATS were a blast .. even with the breakdowns and tire blowouts .. LOL )

this might help ….

Remove your upper rings …. and use the fixed lower ones as a base plate …

you’ll need to fashion a couple of metal tabs .. with correctly drilled holes.

These pics should help …







with the tabs installed you can attach any flat Picatinny rail or 11mm rail straight to the top …



with a new rail installed you can now add whatever rings and scope you want .. bonus is the extra height for a large objective and for WFTF higher is better



Obviously the RWS56 TH I experimented on is not an SLR but it's similar concept as to what you are trying to achieve….

if not David Slade has done SLR Dampa mods before so maybe give hime a try at

Stay fluffy my friend …. hope to see you on the FT circuit one day soon … JB

Temecula in MAY ????? Come On Brazil to So Cal ain’t that far ….

good thinking. I've yet to see or hear of a permanent solution vs. a temporary modification to the Theoben Dampa base.

Man I would love to join you all in Temecula but schedule won't permit! Stay fluffy and I'll see ya around!

proprietary mounting system (rail on top of the receiver + rings that screw into this rail)...
