Re: What base and rings to buy?
I have been in the process of doing an in depth scope mounting and mounting kit review. after trying a few different combinations I now have a new favorite ring. I ended up with the Burris Signature Zee Rings. The ability to adjust your scope using the inserts is excellent. You can add up to 20MOA with just the inserts. or if your gun isn't straight or the holes are drilled slightly off you can correct for this as I had to do. Combine them with the EGW rail and you have an affordable solid option. I can tell you, the counter monkey that will be kind enough to mount your scope and bore site it for you, has no clue what it takes to properly align and mount a scope. I have been 3 full days into this project. For a solid, quick and easy mount, I like the Talley one piece rings. They need lapped to prevent ring marks and there is not any adjustment to them but they are just a great ring option.
