I am trying to locate a Weaver single (long) mount base with aradius that matches the radius of an obsolete rifle.
I discovered that the #15 rear(small) base fits closely,and that the front base ,#16, is too small in radius. I suppose that the #14 base would be just right.
My question is;is the number sequence the same with single bases as it is with dual bases.?
Is there a gunsbmith in the House?
thanks,
Frank

"Introduction to Modern Gunsmithing" MacFarland 1965 Stackpole hasThe Weaver numbers and radiuses

#14 is tapered for Sav 99 only
#15 is .946"
#16 is.840"

Next up from #16 in diameter would be a #24 at .9" and the same .54" spacing.

Clark,
Thanks a lot.
Does McFarland's book have the radii for long single bases?
I was hoping that they were numbered the same as the smaller bases,but I know now that they are not.
I would like to know the number of the one with a radius of about .950.
Thanks again,
Frank

Clark,
I have located a Weaver base,#82,which has only a slightly larger radius,and I can use it.
Is that number in your book? What would be the next smaller number?
Thanks,again
Frank
