    I'm ready to order a scope

    But, I admit I'm clueless on scope rings.
    Last scope I bought was from you, and you recommended the scope and rings.

    So, I'm hoping for more help.
    The rifle I'd place it on is a Savage Mk II fv-sr

    I like Warne and EGW rings. Here are a couple of options for a 1-inch tube with a picatinny rail mount.

    Warne 500M low or 501M medium matte rings https://warnescopemounts.com/500m-warne-1-inch-pa-low-matte-rings/

    EGW 62000 low or 62001 medium Keystone rings https://www.egwguns.com/keystone-scope-rings-1-tube-850-low

    Both of these ring styles will fit the tactical look of your Savage. Low or Medium height should work fine with a 32mm objective.
    I was going to buy rings from Alan on his A&A page

    Sorry for the delay, I have to cut out a bit early due to coaching ball this time of year.

    Id go with these rings assuming you already have a picatinny rail. If you dont have a pic rail, Id order one from EGW.

    Hypothetically, if your not in a huge hurry there should be a refurb drop next week that will save you some coin on rings, and scope.

    On bolt guns, you have to watch 1 inch low rings because to get proper eye relief you have to clear the zoom ring over the rail on most guns. The exception to that rule is CZ's, and in their case, you will hit the occular with the bolt on .75 rings. The problem is, every company calls "low, med, high" a diffrent measurement. I rarely recomend rings shorter than .87

    And this is why I waited for help from a professional.

    :)


    Thank you Alan.

    Thanks for the refurb offer, but I'm putting the order in today.

    Also, I sent you a message last weekend, from your site, asking about rings.

    Obviously, that doesn't need to be replied to now.

    I didn't see that.

    Next time ask here on PM, or alan@aaoptics.com.. sorry for the delay
    No biggie.
    I know I get overwhelmed with spam ads, and once I accidentally deleted some messages before.
    I just waited a bit, saw you were on here, and asked here.

    Next option was to call.
    And the next option was to buy in a store.

    But I'm a loyal customer, and you helped me out with my first scope purchase($$$$$).
    Then I bought some dots.
