My suggestion exactly except I like the NPR-2 reticle. I won't make assumptions about your finances, but with a custom rifle
, it is a shame to skimp on optics. Go with a kickass piece of glass for a kickass rifle. Anything less, and that's like a good lookin woman marrying an ugly SOB. It just doesn't fit.
I honestly don't know the difference between the better rails, rings, etc. but will assume that if they are made by NF, Badger, Seekins, etc., they are all very good quality. When I had Kirby build my canon, I trusted his judgement on what to use to mount my NF scope and I think he knows what he's doing.
Hopefully he or Shawn or one of the other builders will post their recommendation too.
