Quote:Quote:Yep, that looks like a vixen mount size. I ordered my edge with the larger dovetail. Then needed the ADM vixen. Yeah, one would think, but with the screws that came with it, and the Vixen dovetail, there just seems to be no way to get them to line up. And there's no other hardware included. The only thing I can think of is this OTA is somewhere around 2 years old, and I wonder if they weren't drilled with another set of screw holes for Vixen/CG5 back then. On a side note, does anyone know the spacing for the screw holes for installing ADM saddles (in particular the Dual-VM)? The MG2 has 1.5" in between, and maybe I could go with an ADM saddle for the larger dovetail if all else fails. Another pic of the dovetail attached.
