    What is the function of a "MOA" base as opposed to a cheap 1 piece base.? The cost is considerably different so I assume there is reasons that are not readily apparent.
    Help is greatly appreciated.


    Okay, I think I found the answer to my own question..according to an article on snipercountry website, a tapered "moa" scope gives you more adjustment for longr ange shooting than your scope alone, if you do not shoot over 1000 yards it is probably not necessary..unless you have a scope with very little adjustment internally..

    They are also useful on rimfires which have a very high drop in the trajectory, but only if you plan to shoot them at ranges over 150 yards or so.


  3. I have had two lever guns that were impossible to site the scope low enough to get within 10 inches of the black ring so I mounted sdjustible bases and it was everythingI hoped for. well worth the cost.
