Another vote for the Burris Signature with synthetic inserts. Use them on all my rimfires...except T1X after having a larger diameter match barrel installed. The medium rings provided about 1/8" clearance between the OEM barrel and 40 mm objective lens. It now has the DNZ Game Reaper 2- an excellent choice as well and they cost about the same as the Burris rings. The only issue I had with the Burris rings was that the provided screws are a tad short to initially catch the ring screw threads before the inserts are compressed. It could be done, but took a little fiddling to prevent cross-threading. Called Burris CS and they sent longer screws, no charge.
