Default Light weight Scope Rings

Hey Everyone

Itís time to mount my new VX5 on my mountain rifle my first choice would be and always has been Talley Rings but Iím looking to see if there is anything new out there that might be a lighter option.

Thanks.

I doubt you will find lighter or cheaper, but look at leupold backcountry mounts. Similar to Talley in that they are 1-piece, but much nicer lines.

Iíve always liked the look of them, but the horror stories of the wrap around rings made me nervous.

I have a bunch of sets of them, one of my favourite rings by far. After I got my first set from RickF quite a few years ago I was sold.

Do you know if they have a ring that fits directly onto a Picitinni rail.

THanks

If you are running a rail, you have many options. I thought you wanted light 1-piece mounts.

Iíve been trying to figure out which rings came with my rifle but they are nice, the rear ring even has a level built in. Maybe someone here will recognize them.

I donít think they sell them to the public
I remember seeing one of the videos that chuck posted a while ago and it had Aaron Davidson talking about these
Was pretty cool
Iirc they have a lot more points of contact than a normal set of rings

I'm not sure how much they weigh, but ATRS makes some stellar rings. I have 3 pair of the 30mm lows, extremely solid rings. Will see if I can get an accurate weight on them for you.
