What are the best rings for my Sako

I have a Rifles Inc built on a Sako and I just purchased a new VX-L. Could someone tell me what the best rings would be for this? All I see are the medium mounts. Do they make a low mount for the sako in Matte finish? If so will the low mounts work?
Thanks Roy

    Which model VX-L are you running? We sell Lupy ringmounts for the Sako, including lower heights...depends whether you have 30mm or 1-in tube

    rings

    I really like Talley Lightweight One Piece Mounts. I have the low's on several rifles with 40-44mm objectives. There is room under the scope. Check out Talley's website, and the chart should tell you which one will fit...................Al

    I have always been a big Leupold fan, but with that said Leupold's Sako ring mount is the most disgraceful product to ever be sold by the company.
    I have 3 Sako's now and have had several in the past and the best set up I have found is to use Burris Dual dove tail bases with Burris dual dovetail signature rings.
    they come in matte finish but not in low but low will not work anyway even with a VX-L.

    Do tell.

    The best rings would be the Sako Opti-lock, or you can out some IOR Picatinny bases on the dovetails and use any HD ringmount. I use the Lupy QD setup for my L61-R, and it has worked quite well, if not a little flimsy appearing.
