New Sportsmatch One-Piece Mounts Available

Newly available are two Sportsmatch one-piece mounts. These top-end mounts have quick release (QR) capability and are designed to fit both Weaver and Picatinny-spec mounting rails.

Sportsmatch is a specialist manufacturer of scope rings and mounts – that’s pretty-well their whole business. The company is based in the UK and has always manufactured all their products there.

In fact, Sportsmatch has been in business for over 50 years. It was founded back in 1972 by John Ford. John was a keen shooter and was not satisfied with the scope mounts on the market, so he decided to make his own.

The company’s management is now headed by John’s son Matthew as John is now retired from the day-to-day activities of Sportsmatch. Its products are sold in more than 40 countries world-wide.

In recent years the Sportsmatch range has been extended to include over 80 models and now includes accessories such as adapter rails, torch mounts and spirit level kits.

There are two new Sportsmatch one-piece mounts. One for 30mm tube scopes, the other for 34mm scopes. They are Models HOP92 and HOP93 respectively.

Both have triple screw rings – that’s a total of 12 scope ring screws for each mount, combined with a hardened steel arrester bolt that fits between the “teeth” of the scope rail.

In addition, both models are fitted with a built-in bubble level, a great feature to help with practical accuracy in the field. The Quick Release capability allows a mounted scope to be attached and detached from the gun at will, while maintaining the Point Of Impact.
