Scope Ring Height Help Please



Log in to see fewer ads
I will be mounting a 32mm scope on a new Sporter using the included rail scope base.

I'm assuming a set of Low rings (thinking Weaver Quad Lock or B-Square) should work but would like the opinion of you folks here who actually know.

Thanks.

Any low rings should be fine. I like weaver grand slam rings, cause they are steel.

Actually, I'm a huge steel ring fan myself but considering the receiver and base are aluminum, I'm going aluminum on the rings as well with this particular application.

I like the Leupold Rifleman rings myself

I generally use the low rings.. unless I'm using TI rings to match a receivers color

The "Rule of Thumb" concerning ring height is the closer to the line of axis of the bore is best. Rings can always be "shimmed" to a certain degree, if the scope objective bell hits the barrel. I've had good luck using aluminum tape found in the A/C HVAC section of any well stocked hardware store.
With a 32 MM objective bell, I wouldn't think you would need anything higher than "Medium" rings, but "Low" rings would be better.
