458 Lott Legend And The Trijicon RMR06 Sight System

Over the last year we have had a number of inquires in regard to the Trijicon RMR sights and if they could be applied to our rifles? The questions we had seemed to work themselves out and I modified 2 Trijicon RM62 gunsmith bases that we finally acquired after quite a bit of effort to locate. The height of the stocks comb in relation to the height of the sight itself is as important as any other sight system. The Legends stock design and the RMR06 do work well together.

Anders arrived in Utah to hunt Mule Deer as well as have further work done to his Legend Heavy Sporter chambered for 458 Lott. This rifle has been used on one Elephant hunt already where he used both our Peep Sight and a S&B Zenith mounted in a set of our 30-mm rings. He did in fact use both sight systems to take two different Elephants. In short to try them both under field conditions.

One of his latest desires was to install the RMR06 as yet a third option. As we keep detailed records of scope mounts we make for each project I was able to duplicate the same radius that Brian had surface ground on the front ring to the underside of the RMR base, locate and drill the counterbores for the 8x40 screws and then have the base blued and ready for assembly when he stepped off the plane from Sweden. It took longer to drive to the range than it took to zero in the RMR06. He shot approximately 20 rounds to zero and test the system. He plans to use this rifle this winter in Sweden to add some wild boar to the menu for the holidays.
