    Hey

    Just today I got my vulcan and im adding a Nikko Stirling Panamax 4.5-14×50 AO HMD, Question is, High or medium mounts? Cant make up my mind. High feels better but the mediums are lighter and I guess bettter?

    What are you guys running?

    Thought closer to the barrel was best?

    I had mediums on mine, but found that I was having to contort my head and neck to line up the scope.  I went to high and really like them much better.  I think the common convention is as Ginuwine1969 said, the lower the scope is to the barrel the better, but since these are bullpups and and they don’t really fit the normal convention of a rifle as to where you shoulder the gun, I think some folks, me included like the higher mounts on our bullpups.  But hey try what feels best for you.  As far as throwing the normal convention out take a look at what Ted did with one of his guns at a match!  4 or 5 rails on top of each other?

Depends on whether you’re shooting short distance(lower) or long distance (higher)

    I like higher mounts with these air rifles. The higher mounts tend to flatten out my trajectory to say 50 or 60 yards. Different strokes I guess……….no right or wrong here

    The answer is going to be very subjective.  There’s pro’s and con’s to having low and high mounts but I think the most important thing being missed here is cheek weld.  First and foremost if your eye doesn’t line up to the centerline of the scope, you shouldn’t use it.  If you have to crane or move your head and neck every time you shoulder the gun, you’re doing it wrong.  A good test to see which height is best for you is to close your eyes, then shoulder your weapon as if you’re ready to fire, then open your eyes.  If you get a perfect sight picture, then that is the perfect scope height for you.  For me and my Vulcan bullpup, I find the Warne mounts in high line up for me nicely but everyone’s faces are different and it may not work as well for you.  

    That being said, as long as the scope lines up to my eye, I do prefer the higher mounts.  Like Marksman said, it gives you the flatter trajectory out to around 50 yards.  When I use my scopes I use on my PBers on my air rifles, they all end up around 2.75″ above bore.  It’s not as comfortable for me as far as my eye lining up but I do like the fact that with a 25 yard zero I could use the crosshair to about 55 yards and it gets me to within 1/2″ of my target throughout.

    I have put medium on mine. With the adjustable butt pad they are easy to shoot.

    nice thank you. lots of useful info, and looks like most ppl have the same idea. High for comfort and then low for trajectory. Depending on range it looks like? Good thing i have both sorts of mounts so i guess ill do a chrono session today with lows and then next time try out the highs.

    Dont look at me! Most likely just some random missclicks, didnt even know that the +- was in use. Imo the forum systems that have the ability to give out thanks are better and serve the purpose just as well .

    On some bullpups the recoil pad is positioned a little too high on the stock for my frame. I end up just using the lower part of it so the gun is positioned higher and the scope is closer to my eye level. This lets me get away with using lower mounts without being uncomfortable. That’s my preference over using higher rings. 

    I think I remember one of the stores selling adjustable buttplates for the Vulcan. Might be worth checking out.

New Vulcans come with that standard, and yes I adjusted the rifle higher with the help of it.
