Default adjustable scope mounts on a springer ?

Looking at attempting to get my aim points the same for my springer and pcps , been down the shimming route and tbh I dont like it too much ,everyone I know has tried this has at some point had some issues , even on pcps ,

so , anyone got some experience with adjustable mounts on a springer ? ,

Hilver used to make them specifically to fit HW's, all steel with recoil arresters. Excellent bits of kit, I use these when fixed mounts don't give a good set up.

You occasionally see them crop up in sale threads, or shop bargain buckets if they don't realise what they have.

Failing that, as well as the normal adjustables, sportsmatch do (or did) a droop compensator mount, one piece with angle built in.

No problems here. Proved poi shift wasn't down to them. Steve Privett uses them. Enough said

Dave, thanks for this , I havent ever needed recoil pins fitted to my rails with existing sportsmatch set up ,, just saw a set of mounts the other day , two piece but had vertical adjust on them, I wondered if that particular adjustment / area ever moves or is a liability on a springer

Have had absolutely no problems with the Sportsmatch adjustables on my TX's (both the ATP 61 & 66), no movement whatsoever.
But, have observed competitors picking up >15 lbs of gun by the the scope, not recommended I imagine...

I have the sportsmatch 2 piece ATP66 adjustables on my 2 TX200s -- no problem at all with POI shift.

I use them on my HWs and LGU: 2 x Sportsmatch AOP55 and a set of ATP61. No problems at all.

The late Paul James (RIP) swore by AOP55.

For what its worth, I've used one piece sportsmatcm mounts on my weirauchs HW77 and HW97 for years and no problems and no scope creep.Don't need locating pins.
The HW77 has a fixed one piece used since 1982,and the HW97 for 5 years using the adjustable one piece mount.
The adjustable is a more precise way to set up a scope and leave scope turret adjustment to a minimal in its central positions,
Hope it helps.
