I have mounted a Viper HS 4-16x50 on my Tikka T3, and is very happy with it. Only thing i need is Turrets like you put on the other models like on the PST models. Is it possible to buy and mount them anywhere? 

Asked by: Claus
The Viper HS cannot be retrofitted with a different turret system, however you can use the turrets on your scope to dial just like the exposed turret models.

I have a Tikka T3X Superlite rifle. (30-06). What all do I need to have this Viper HS 4-16x50 scope mounted?

Asked by: Taylor
The tikka comes with its own rings already. But they are also one inch rings so they won't fit the 30mm tubing that the scope has. So what you are going to need to do is buy a Rail base and then you can get a 30mm ring to mount this scope. You will not be disappointed. I promise you.

I have recently purchased a Savage 16/116 Weather Warrior in .300WSM. Could you recommend the ring/mounting system that would be optimal for this scope and rifle combination? Thanks.
