    Anyone have an oppinion on Weaver's new 30mm tactical rings. As soon as I pick out a scope for my edge I will need some rings too. Figured I would get the Burris XTR rings but curious if anyone has seen or used these Weaver mounts?

    I actually just got some of these. I don't have the gun they go on yet, so I haven't mounted them but they look great. I am going to lap them because I have a lapping kit so I forsee no problems with them. Mine are the 30mm version. Just waiting for my rifle to get done at Stockade. I also was going to go the Burris route but they seem the same and these are cheaper :D I can't imagine them not holding a scope in place.

    Thanks,

    I thought they looked pretty good as well though I have not seen them up close. Now all I have to do is get a scope to mount them on.

    Let us know how they work out and how much lapping was required.

    I was thinking of the Burris XT ringsd also, but looking at the weavers I cant see how they could be any diffrent.
    What are you boys mounting them on for bases? I cant seem to find a cost effective picittiny/weaver rail.

    EGW, best value out there. Most bases are only $40 and you can get them in 0 MOA or 20 MOA. Check them out at Welcome to EGW Inc. or on Ebay.
