Re: What Base and Rings?
I have hundred of guns, all cheap, beat up, misfit, half completed projects.
You would not want to be like me, but I have and have used a lot of different hardware.
I like the bases I make myself best, but it take days to make one.
I have never made any rings.
For store bought, on the cheap, I like the Burris tactical rings. Be careful you buy a pair or two singles.
For store bought, on the cheap, I like EGW one piece bases the best.
I have a lot of steel rings and steel bases, but I don't see any reason we can't hang on to a thin Aluminium tube with thick Aluminium rings and bases.
When I use two piece bases, I sometimes go through an elaborate procedure to get them co planar and parallel to the bore with glass bedding between the base and receiver.
When I put a scope with the reticule adjusted to the center of the tube on a rifle with stock Weaver rings, I want that rifle to be already bore sighted. I don't want any ring lapping or cranking on the windage or elevation adjustments.
