I haven't used or even seen the Smith Ent. rings but would warn you that sometimes a person can get so low with low rings and big objectives that you can't use any lens covers like Butler Creek or Scopecoats. Pain in the butt when you can't get anything between the barrel and the bottom of the scope, can't even get an oily cloth under some setups.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Point taken, Ian. I don't need much height in the rings as the Farrell base provides enough for my 40mm scope. I'm currently using Burris low Zee rings and they allow just enough room for the Butler Creek cap and a silicone wipe.
I have been looking at the Leupold PRW rings. They may be a nice inexpensive set for those wanting a four screw cap without going to a full blown tactical type of ring.
I was talking with the folks at Volquartsen today about some parts for my 10/22 and they mentioned their tactical rings. Didn't even know they made them. Look very nice with a deep channel and heavy cross pins.
Here's a link to that page:
I have a lot of Volquartsen products and have never been disappointed in the quality.
I may try a set of these just to be different!
