Contessa Picatinny Rail for Savage 110-111-112 LA (20 MOA) Details


Picatinny rail consists of slots with 5.23 mm spaces between one another, which means that it can be used across its entire length. It is simple to mount and interchangeable – if something is made for a Picatinny rail, it will fit regardless of the manufacturer or manufacturing date. It is affordable, resilient and reliable – this is why it so commonly used by professionals and military. Because of all its great qualities, Picatinny rail has been dominating the rail market in the recent years.

Picatinny is a big step forward from the Weaver standard. Weaver has a few predesignated slots while Picatinny has slots all over its surface, allowing the device to be mounted wherever the user finds it fitting. Weaver’s slot is 3.8 mm wide, which is why ring mounts made for a Weaver rail will also fit on a Picatinny rail while ring mounts made specifically for a Picatinny rail will not fit on a Weaver rail. This is one of the main reasons why Picatinny is a far better mounting solution.

Contessa is an Italian company, famous for producing aesthetically appealing mounts with a nice finish. The tolerances of the produced pieces are very tight – there are no deviations, the mounts are very carefully machined. Contessa’s Picatinny rails are made from steel and come with their unique screws which fit nicely into the rail. The screws have a huge contact surface and a bigger head than screws of other mount manufacturers, while the thread is the same. Contessa’s Picatinny rails, made in Italy, are available in both 0 MOA and 20 MOA versions. Throughout the middle of the rail, there is a canal so that the rail can be used together with rifle’s sights.

20 MOA Inclination

20 MOA inclination is only needed when the scope runs out of elevation. For example, when shooting at the range of 100 m, shooter gains 58.2 cm / 100 m of additional elevation range with a 20 MOA mount. This is approximately 5.8 Mrad of elevation. To make things even clearer – if the target was placed at 100 m, the scope with 20 MOA inclined rail would aim to the center of the target while the rifle’s barrel would aim 58 cm higher than the scope. This gives the shooter extra elevation needed for long range shooting. If you plan to shoot on distances longer than 600 meters, use of rail with 20 MOA is greatly recommended. There is no negative effect of the inclined Picatinny rail in the mounting setup if you only shoot on shorter distances. The same goes also the other way around, since if you don’t shoot on extreme distances then Picatinny rail with inclination is not needed.

About the rifle

Savage Arms is a firearms manufacturing company from Westfield, Massachusetts. It was founded in 1894 by Arthur Savage in Utica, New York. In the beginning, the company manufactured rifles, handguns, and ammunition. During World War 2, Savage Arms turned to military production – they produced the famous submachine gun Thompson and Lee-Enfield, a bolt-action rifle. They are also known for their unique trigger „Accutrigger“, Model 99 hammerless lever-action rifle and .300 Savage sporting cartridge.

Savage model 110 is a bolt-action rifle which was patented in 1958. Today, it is the oldest continuously produced American rifle with a bolt action, surpassing even the famous Model 70 Winchester. Originally, the firearm was chambered for .30-06 Sprg., and .270 Win. In 1959, Savage introduced a short-action version of this rifle which was made for .243 Win. and .308 Win. Because only one design of this rifle was available, the manufacturing was easy – that kept the prices down. Its safety featured three positions. In 1998, Savage wanted a clearer differentiation between short-action and long-action models – they named the short-action models “Model 10” while the long-action models retained number 110. In 2003, Savage introduced Accutrigger for this series of firearms – this trigger gives the user a possibility to set the trigger pull to his or her own preferences.

Rifles Savage Mod. 110 can either have a round or a flat rear mounting surface. That depends on when the rifle was manufactured – the older rifles have a flat rear part (flat top) of the receiver while the new ones have a round rear part (round top). Based on that, an appropriate mount has to be chosen.

This mount is suitable for Savage Mod. 110 with a round rear mounting surface.

A: 21.84 mm

B: 117.6 mm

C: 21.84 mm

BHU: 0 mm

Fi: 6-48

R1: R17

R2: Flat or round (depends on the model, see the description above)

Mounting instructions

Remove all the stains (grease, oil etc.) from the rifle’s receiver with a cleaning fluid (acetone). Once the surface is clean and dry, check whether the screws match the rail and the holes on the receiver. Make sure that the Picatinny rail is compatible with the rifle by inspecting the mounting holes on both. Before mounting the rail permanently, apply a minimal amount of thread-locking fluid 278 or 648 on screws and contact surfaces. Be careful not to get the fluid in or near the mounting holes. Carefully clean the remaining excess fluid around the rail with a cleaning fluid. Using a torque driver, screw the screws appropriately (up to 2.2 Nm) – do not overtighten.


The product has a warranty period of 30 years.
