Ken Farrell Rings

I'm in the market for a new set of rings and the newly designed Ken Farrell rings have caught my eye (I usually go with Badger). Has anyone tried these? They come in both steel and aluminum. http://www.kenfarrell.com/new_ring.html

Re: Ken Farrell Rings

I'd stick with the Badgers. They make some aluminum rings also if you are looking for a lightweight set.

Re: Ken Farrell Rings

They will not interchange with Badger bases if you like to move scopes around, if you have Badgers now I would stay with them like Chris suggested.

Re: Ken Farrell Rings

Yes, my plan was to be able to switch my scopes around using the badger bases (i can use my ziess for on the go type hunting and the NF for load developement and LR situations). I thought that the Farrell rings would be compatible with the badger base--thanks for pointing this out. I will be mounting up a 1" zeiss conquest and don't like the idea of using ring reducers, this is the only reson why I was looking at Farrell's products. Thanks for the tip guys, the alloy badgers are almost half the weight of the steel version and will be perfect for what I had in mind. Has anyone tried the badger ring reducers, what are you supposed to do about lapping?

Re: Ken Farrell Rings

Maybe I am wrong about this, but when switching the same scope between rifles, I leave the rings, that I have lapped, on the base and just move the scope. My concern is that there may be slight differences between bases, enough to torque the scope when moving rifle to rifle.

Re: Ken Farrell Rings

MOA , I have had good luck lately using rings made by Tactical Precision , I have gotten 3 sets of their TSR rings and all have been made very well , they come made in aluminum , steel and in 1" , 26mm and 30mm sizes , they run about $50 a set from Brownells.

I know alot of the time you get what you pay for so if you insist on spending $100+ on a set , their is always the Leupold MK4 rings , also Volquartsen maks a Tactical style ring in 1" , both of those run around $150
But Like I said I was very supprise with the
cheaper TRS rings , great quality for the price
