About Sportsmatch UK

Sportsmatch was established in 1972 by John Ford. John was a keen shooter and was not satisfied with the Japanese scope mounts on the market as like the low cost Chinese mounts available today they ‘creeped’ (slid rearwards on the dovetail) after several shots causing accuracy problems. The alternative German mounts were very expensive and difficult to obtain so John set about solving this problem by developing his own.

Armed with a wealth of knowledge and design prowess gained from the motor sports industry John designed a range of mounts which did not ‘creep’ even when used on the most heavily recoiling rifles. The price was affordable to the mass market and they were manufactured in England as they are today.

Sportsmatch quickly became an established name in the United Kingdom and production has now grown to supply distributors in over 30 countries. In recent years the range has been extended to include over 50 models and now includes accessories such as adapter rails and spirit level kits. Such is the confidence that Sportsmatch has in its products that we now offer a ‘lifetime guarantee’ on every product we produce. Such confidence comes from using the latest state of the art CNC machinery but retaining a crucial hands on approach by our quality assurance staff which inspect every single model prior to dispatch.

The company’s management is now headed by John’s son Matthew as John is now retired from the day to day activities of Sportsmatch. Matthew has overseen the development of many new products and spends a lot of time listening to the requirements of shooters from all over the world.

So now in its 38th year of growth and reinvestment Sportsmatch offers a rock solid dependable scope mounting solution for virtually all combinations. If you want a high quality scope mount at a reasonable price that is rock solid and dependable ask your dealer for a ‘Sportsmatch’
