I just ordered up some 0.825" high scope rings from Murphy Precision and a minor issue has come up. If anyone is familiar with the Premier Heritage scopes they will notice that under the turret the scope tube body has a rounded "bulge" built into the tube. I guess it has something to do with the way the reticles need space to move up and down and side to side inside the scope, I don't know for sure. Well with that low a scope ring height the bulge hits the picatinny base by just a tiny bit. So Murphy Precision is going to mill the middle 3 teeth of picatinny base by about 50 thousanths so the scope clears the base. It will not affect the strength of the base at all. So if you are a purchaser of new Premier scope and happen to go with that low of a ring height be aware that you may have to mill the base a hairs breath to get clearance.
This should not be an issue for higher scope rings like a 1" and probably not even a 0.875 or .92 offered in other brands but be aware that this may be an issue for the lower height variaties.
I'm still glad to be going with the lower ring height, at least I hope so since I have yet to mount it and shoot it.
Hope this helps any Premier owners out there.
here are are some pics of the Murphy Precision picatinny base and rings in Titanium (0.825 ring height). I chose to go with stainless with a dark gun coat finish.
