Which one is better for mounting a Super Sniper scope on a flatop upper, the tall or medium height 22 Arms mount?

Thanks.

If you're mounting the rings straight onto the upper, then you'll be wanting the 22H (High) rings; they will place the scope at the same height as irons, so there is no change in cheek weld.

I've currently got #22med rings on my SS...it's on my DPMS .308, which has a slightly higher than normal flat top.

Just last night, I took that setup on put it on a standard flat top...and it did require me to mash my face down on the stock a little bit to get a good look through the scope....so I'd suggest going with the high ARMS rings.

If you have the $$, the LaRue is a sweet mount. No worries about them getting loose down the road, and moving the scope forward is a bonus.

ARMS and many others make swan sleeve mounts that let you place the scope forward for proper eye relief.

Is the A.R.M.S. issue with loosening rings just myth, or is there evidence. And were the loosening rings caused from human mistake when putting them on, or is it a repeatable problem prevelant with all of A.R.M.S. rings.

Personally I've never had a problem with arms gear loosening up. My EO tech OTOH....

I think the real problem is the tolerance of the rail where the ARMS product is being mounted. I've put the same ARMS mounts on several different receivers. Some were tight, some allowed the mount to wiggle.

The Larue concept is more sound as it allows adjustment to the target rail. Let's face it. I have no doubts that when the military rejects parts, those parts sometimes find their way into the civilian market.

I have an ARMS Aimpoint mount that is loose enough on one particular rifle to move back and forth...it's tight on 5 other rifles.

I have a set of ARMS 22 rings that very easy to clamp on...there's almost no resistance when you flip the levers. The scope is still rock solid on the flat top, with no hint of movement.

I can say, though, that the LaRue mounts do offer the ability to tighten them to make up for the differences between uppers, and in case they ever get loose.
