I recently recieved my NXS 5.5-22x56. I still need a base and rings. I've been looking at the badger ones. This scope will be mounted on a 700 LA. I'd like the shortest mount hight possible without the bell touching the barrel of course. Will the medium high rings with the badger base do the trick?

Where is a good place to pick them up?


Yup, I have the same scope and they work great...
Chris Matthews might be able to get you them for a reasonable price...
You might be able to buy them direct from Badger..
Brownell's has them but I bet they are expensive there...


Ditto on what Ric said. I have the same setup and everything fits perfectly...

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
