Those of you who are heavily invested in the bolt action rifle game will no doubt be familiar with the Masterpiece Arms Bolt Action Mount. The Bolt Action Mount is a precision machined scope mount meant to mate high-performance rifle optics with Picatinny-equipped rifles. Masterpiece Arms have just announced a few new enhancements to their Bolt Action Mount.
Masterpiece Arms Introduces New Enhancements for the Bolt Action Mount
The BA Series Mounts are made for mounting high performance optics onto bolt action rifles with Picatinny rail scope bases. Pic rail to scope center line height varies. 1″ & 30mm versions are 1.060″. 34mm are 1.060″, 1.125, 1.250 & 1.500. The 35mm & 36mm mount measurement is 1.250″
The mount is precision machined from 6061 T6 aluminum and finished in hard coat T3 Mil-Spec anodize. Horizontal split rings.

- This mounting system is designed to handle large objectives up to 56mm (34mm Mount) and 50mm (30mm Mount).
The first thing many of you will notice about the updated version of the Bolt Action Mount is the addition of a new hold pattern on the flat side of the mount. The holes are drilled and tapped to accept things like turret guards, dope cards, bubble levels, and other accessories available from Masterpiece Arms. The holes feature 20mm spacing and 4mm metric holes.
Why would one want to mount turret guards on their scope? Precision shooters in particular have to worry about their turrets being bumped or moved when shooting in different positions and through barriers. It is not uncommon for scopes to get knocked around a bit during a match so these turret guards serve as a safeguard against accidental changes to windage and elevation which could prematurely end a match.
The Masterpiece Arms BA Bolt Action Mount is available now from the Masterpiece Arms website and starts at a price of $249.99.
