Might look into Seekins Precision as well.

Re: New Nightforce 5.5-22x56 NXS on SAUM Need Ring Recommendations

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.

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!
