Re: NF steel Ring heights

.885 will work depending on your barrel contour

Sorry should have said.

Re: NF steel Ring heights

I would also reccomend the .885 height. With a Sendaro contour barrell, you can even fit a 56mm with our one-piece base.

Hope this helps,
Ken

Re: NF steel Ring heights

I also recommend the 0885” rings. You will have a lot of room. I do recommend the Aluminum / titanium rings they are the way to go. The scope tube is aluminum so the materials will grow and constrict at the same rate. Also they weight is . I myself mainly use aluminum.

Also we have steel in aluminum in stock.
