This will be my first semi that i have mounted optics on..from what I have read, one concern with the mounts is that they are high enough so that the shooter gets a good cheek weld with the AR platform
I was really interested in the burris xtreme rings as well. I asked around heard good things about them. But before I ordered them I talked to a gunsmith (who is a sponser on here) and asked about the burris rings. He said he had tried 3 sets of them, all horrible, one set was so bad that he couldnt even lap them and said if he had tried to use them he probably would have destroyed the scope, he threw them away and said he will never try them again. There is also this thread on here " Vortex PST
" this guy had a similiar expierence and said " After mounting another scope in some different rings and bore sighting everything lined up nearly perfectly with the reticle centered. Threw the rings I had on the PST (Burris Extreme Tactical) back on the EGW 20MOA mount to check them out. They looked out of alignment to the naked eye. I placed a machinist rule against the rings and what do you know the front ring was off to the right of the bore and the rule caught air on one side when laid flat down the rear inner ring side.
Turns out Scott had a similar conversation with another customer less than two weeks ago. Same Burris rings and another bad alignment issue. Probably the last time I go with burris extreme tactical rings. I'm not sure I could even get this much error lapped out. It is something I should have checked before I got everything mounted. I was just so excited I didn't slow down and do all the checks I should have. I also should have caught it zeroing but again I wasn't paying much attention to the corrections required. I was just having a great time with the new toy. SHAME ON ME!! "
Now Im sure some people, maybe lots of people, have had a good expierence with these rings but I didnt want to gamble. I went with the "vortex rings" made by seekins, being is I got the viper 6.5-20. I know that people swear by the nightforce ultralights, I cant really comment on the mark 4 rings sorry.
