    Question regarding picatinny rails and FN SPR mounts.

    I've never really had any experience with picatinny mounting systems, 40 firearms and not one picatinny rail. Now that I'm feeling slightly newbish as I'm wondering if I still need mounts as to attach to the top of an FN SPR. This has only recently arisen as I came into more $, so I could raise the bar for my rifle come this May a little, and the solid reports of the FN A3 G has all but convinced me towards a FN SPR A1. Would the SPR take standard Model 70 mounts? Do I even need mounts with this thing? System will (should...) be as follows-
    -FN SPR A1 24" (With mag.)
    -Leupold PR 4.5-14x40
    -Leupold 30mm Medium Rings
    -Leupold Bases(?)
    Thank you very much for any help you can offer! Cheer all!

    The rail is the base, so if you got a rail, there would be no need for any bases. You obviously need rings.

    I "believe" that all the FN bolt rifles take standard Winchester mounts

    Great thanks! This means I could perhaps remove the rail and put down a two piece Model 70 Mount base, assuming the rail uses same tap as mount bases? I have sometimes found single piece mounts (non-picatinny) to interfere with hand loading.
    Thanks! Cheers.
