Now...the scope is large when sitting on the base, and I have seen on the Allen Mag website four rings holding the scope. Should I go with Badger Ordnance six-screw bases or get another set and use four four-screw rings?
Any advice is appreciated.
Oops. sorry, I use the factory bikini covers and thin down the bottom is needed with a little trimming. I should have asked about flip up covers. I mount them as close as possible for easier cheek weld.
Keep in mind if the 100's have some clearance and you go to 125's you are going to be over .250" off the barrel. Could you grind or polish down the flip up a little to get it on? All you need is some clearance so it does not touch.
I would not have any issues trusting one set of NF rings. I have never had a set slip. But if you were mounting up on top a big Allen Mag. Then I am sure Kirby does it for a reason.
