Raising scope elevation to 55MOA for 22LR with custom pic rail

Thanks to custom picatinny rail created in-house by our gunsmiths, this 22LR Lithgow Crossover now has the elevation adjustment to shoot out to 400m on dial-alone.

The rifle was set up for long-range competition use (precision rifle and field) but the factory mounting options didn’t support enough scope elevation. This was reducing the amount of elevation available, costing time and accuracy when finding and hitting the target.

So, our gunsmiths created a picatinny rail in 55MOA to allow maximum elevation adjustment. The rail was made to suit the length and size of receiver, with a cut out for the ejection port and drilled/tapped to suit. It was finished in black Cerakote.

With a trigger job to bring the factory trigger down to 1lb, it is ready for some accurate competition and field work.

Pic rail brings new sights to Colt 1911 Rail Gun

Our client was wanting to reduce eye strain and aid clarity of vision by moving to a a sight/scope that allowed two-eye target acquisition while shooting pistol competition with their Colt 1911 Rail Gun. The Vortex Viper 6MOA Red Dot was the answer, but this Colt was just not designed to accommodate it.

Installing an off-the-shelf picatinny rail meant the sights would sit too high (there would be too much offset between the sight and the bore).

This design needed to be low profile, high speed and low drag for competition. So we created a custom picatinny rail with a lower profile and modified to slide to create a tidy recess for the rail to nestle into.

After finishing in Cerakote, the pistol was ready to go. Now there is a happy shooter rocking their Rail Gun with a new Vortex Viper and both eyes on target.
