Might look into Seekins Precision as well.

    Rings are almost to the point of bow tie vs Blue Oval debate


    Anything from the "top tier" manufacturers should work just fine.

    Ring i've used and/or would recommend (in no particular order):

    Leupold MK4
    TPS
    Badger Ordnance
    Seekins Precision
    American Rifle Company
    NightForce


    My favorite at the moment is ARC (American Rifle Company).

    Rifle Scope Rings

    I almost forgot to mention (I'm ashamed of that). If you're looking to get a scope base that will equal or exceed the strength & quality of the rings recommended, I HIGHLY recommend Murphy Precision. Cam just happens to make bases for the Model 7 as well. Stainless steel? No problem. Titanium you say? Sure. If you don't see what you want, call him. Cam has built two custom bases for me in no time flat & for a more than reasonable Fee.


    MurphyPrecision.com - Scope Bases, Rings, and Assorted Shooting Accessories.

    I use EGW bases and Burris Xtreme rings on all of my setups...I also hand lap them. No problems at all and less expensive than most. I just mounted the same NF scope on a Savage FLCP-K and used their Medium height rings.
    Good luck!
