Product Description


By volume, one of our most popular guides!  ACW’s Vintage High Frame Stripping Guide.  The high frame is our standard Hydro-Welded™ frame for 11mm guides, i.e., it’s a ‘normal’ height modern frame when used with larger 11mm rings. However, when using it to mount the smaller 10mm ring, the wings of the frame are slightly elevated, which creates a beautifully balanced appearance when paired with the wider, vintage rings. Approximately 1.200” long and 0.610” tall from the bottom of the feet to the top of the ring.

Note:  October 2020 – We’ve switched production over to our new Hydro-Welded™ Frames.  The current photos show only our new, second generation, frames – the new frames are immediately recognizable when compared to the first generation frames due to the crisper fold at the pointed top of each of the frame wings.
