Rings and bases

I have a sendero, im mounting a night force 5.5x22x50 on it. What rings and bases would you recomend for this? Hate to break the bank, but dont want something that will give me problems either. What height should I get too.

Re: Rings and bases

If your gonna put the NF on it, spend just a little more and put the NF 20 moa rail on it and the NF titanium rings. You'll need the .885 rings with the 50mm and Sendero contour....

A little more money, but you'll never be sorry.... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Jr.

I recently installed a Ken Farrell alum picatinny base and Tactical Precision Systems alum rings. Steel is available, I just want to keep my rifles weight down.

Originally I ordered a zero base from Ken then later desired a 20 MOA base. He had me send it back to him w/ $5.00 for the return shipping to me. He modified the base for free to include taking a .10" off to make it a lower profile and beveled the rear of the base's top so it would clear the occular lens of my Nikon 4.5-14x40 Mil-dot. He also added an extra pic groove over the rear of my Rem 700 action; all this for free. His prices are very reasonable as well.

I was very impressed with my base and rings: www.seekinsprecision.com They took a while to build, but they were worth the wait.

Bingo! Best bang for the $$ for heavy duty rings.

Glen does them in runs, so you only wait if you order right after he sells all his stock.

YMMV,
