Question Scope Rings for New RAR Target 22WMR



Log in to see fewer ads
I would like to get some ring suggestions for a new RAR Target 22WMR (model 8349). Most likely I'll be mounting this Vortex scope:

Crossfire II 6-18x44 AO Dead Hold BDC Reticle with 1 inch tube




This is my first 22WMR rifle and I'm very excited to pick it up hopefully next week. Any tips for a magnum newbie are welcome as well

Thanks!

I like the weaver 4x4 style with the two independent straps for each mount. They hold pretty well and don't tend to rotate as much as some other types when you tighten them. I hate the weaver steel top with screws only on one side. Those always seem to rotate on you when you tighten them. The 4x4 mounts come in short, medium and tall. Maybe even extra tall. Not sure what height you'll need?

Yea, I'm not sure about height either. I'm hoping to get some suggestions about that. I'm thinking low or medium rings would do the trick though.

Thanks!

On my RAR Standard in 22WMR, I mounted a Nikon Target EFR 3-9x40 AO scope on Weaver #12 bases & Weaver Quad Lock #49049 Extra High rings to get clearance over the rear sight. I can't get to the rifle now or I would measure the actual scope size & clearance with those rings for you. I had previously used Weaver Grand Slam #49319 High rings on this rifle when I had a Nikon P-Rimfire 2-7x32 scope on it, but those wouldn't work for the 3-9x40 EFR scope.

I really like my RAR 22 Mag. It shot great right out of the box, and seems to shoot 40g rounds, CCI TMJ or JHP, slightly better than the 30g rounds, CCI HP+V JHP or Hornady V-Max.

The lower the better in terms of height over the bore but too low can cause problems. Since you don't have sights, I'd try medium and high. Low is going to be too short for a 44 objective most likely. If it was a fixed 40, I'd say low might work. Walmart sometimes carries these so you might be able to get both and see which works best locally. 4x4 = quad lock

You can't go wrong with Burris Signature Zee rings. With the accessory inserts you can get external elevation and/or windage adjustments, and they never leave ring marks. I have them on my RPR (among several others) and couldn't be happier with them.

On my .22WMR RAR, I use UTG Low QD rings to mount a 3-9x32mm scope.

I have a predator model with a Mueller 8-32x44 mounted in a set of Weaver Hugh rings. There is way more clearance then need be and I would go with medium rings to do over

Thank you all for the advice. I actually went with some Warne high rings to try (202M). Hopefully they'll work out.

Good choice, I have them on four rifles (1", 30mm, 34mm) and they all fit great and are very well made. The price is so low compared to the market Warne probably loses some sales to people thinking they're cheap low quality rings.

Yep definitely a good choice...I was surprised at the weight of them to be honest. Real steel and made in USA. And they ended up fitting perfectly. With scope caps on, I might have max 1.5mm clearance.

Now just gotta get sighted in. I have about 8 different rounds to try to see what it likes.

I tried fitting my 4.5-14x40 scope to my RAR Standard 8351 last night using Weaver 1" Quad-Lock 4X4 medium height rings and it would not work because of barrel/scope clearance. I have ordered the same rings in high and that should take care of the scope to barrel clearance. I also have a 2-7x32 coming for this rifle and I should have no problems using the medium rings with that scope.
