Do you drink your tea with your little finger pointed up, while ripping one off?

Agreed, it is good to have choices...but that doesn't mean the choices are all good ( Sorry, I couldn't resist). I also agree there should be no dispute in matters of taste, but there always is, and tastes can mean anything, including taste in government: republic, democracy, socialism, communism, fascism...I would say differences in "taste" has caused most of the pain and suffering in this world.

I'm glad all we have to argue about is scope base configuration .

TBR

Subjectivity is what gives us something to argue about. If we weren't able to argue, how boring would a forum or life in general be? All the guns would be just alike, or we just might not have guns to argue about. Opinions and options are healthy as long as everyone realizes we all have a right to our own opinions and options, LOL. We all know a person who is never wrong, just ask them, LOL.

According to my admittedly pungent bunghole, any sporter with a dovetail milled into its receiver deserves the elegance and simplicity of having rings fitting that dovetail used for mounting a scope, and there is no shortage of outstanding rings available, ranging from inexpensive to top-drawer. As a minimalist who is highly aesthetics oriented, I see no need for adding extra parts, if simply mounting a scope is the objective. Now, the recent popularity of long-range rimfire shooting requiring 10 or 20 MOA sloped mounts is a another thing, and I understand that need...but that is a very specialized application for a unique situation, not a simple mounting of a scope.



Again, to each his own, but (get ready) I personally have absolutely no use for mounting Hubble-class telescopes on rimfire sporters using clunky, toothy aluminum Lego blocks. And, since I'm pontificating, I also abhor placing sleek sporter barreled actions into metal contraptions that resemble a severed Terminator's limb.



It seems the proliferation of large, massive scopes on rimfires is what has led to the many blocky, inelegant bases out there, when sleek, sporter scopes usually would not require anything but a nice ring mounted directly to the receiver.



It truly grieves my soul to see sleek, elegant rifles, the majority of the effort and cost of crafting of which involved enhancing aesthetics, being rendered into heavy, awkward-handling chisel plows.



How's that for a smelly bunghole

I agree with nearly all of this, and You have earned the right to say what does and does not look "right".

Yes he has but we do not necessarily have to agree. I like big scopes on some models and this one needs an extended rail, LOL
