    • Q: Hi
      I'm interested by your product and available to buy whitout any restriction ( i'm living in France)
      My gun is sot equiped whit a picatinny but with a 11 mm.
      I got some adaptator 11/picatinny for my actual rifle scope and also for red dot
      my question is :
      How long the Picatinny needed to fix your scope ?
      I ll probably buy one if I know the lenght ..
      thank's for your answer and don't worry for my so bad language ..
      god bless the USA
      dominique Augey

    • A: Hello Augey.

      There is no restriction on this scope for sale to France. In terms of mounting the scope, you don't need to have a picatinny rail. If you have rings which mount on 11mm rail you can use those rings. Please let us know if this is not clear.

      Au revoir et merci pour vos questions.
