The Best = Larue One-Piece

So I see that Larue are the best. But I don't have the cash to drop $195 on that combo after dropping my money on the SS. Anyother reasonable ones our there.

This 30mm armalite mount will put your scope at the same height as if your were using standard iron sights. It's solid, looks good and $75. Personally I use LaRue... http://www.quanticoarms.com/asp/itemDetail.asp?dispItemNum=687&type=M&CMN=ArmaLite&CMNum=19&CMSNum=85&CMSN=Scope%20Mounts

Agree. Larue first. If Larue = too much $$$, buy Armalite one-piece for less than half the Larue $$$.

Also looking for 30mm ring/mount for the flattop. for my application I think that the armalite one piece will not allow the scope to be mounted far enough foward. This is from eyeballing the scope and AR15 beside the Armalite mount on a AR10. Am thinking about the F.I.R.E. extended rail.?

Comments or experiences?

I use an extended riser (1/2" high) made by Accuracy Speaks (available direct or from Brownell's) combined with standard-height rings. There are now a similar ones available from Compass Lake and White Oak, among others. This gives me an extra 4" of rail to let me mount a Leupold 6.5-20x50 LRT (a rather long scope), and gives me the option for an extra 15' of built-in elevation for long range work.

I'm using Burris Signature Zee rings - they are inexpensive and work well, even though they don't have the macho look many seem to like. They use a floating plastic bushing to minimize stress on the scope tube and simplify installation, and offset bushings are available. Bushings with a 0.010" offset are included with 30 mm rings, and 0.010", 0.020" and 0.030" bushings can be purchased for 1" rings. They're inexpensive and work very well. I use them on my spacegun to mount a VX-III 6.5-20x50 LRT and have never had a problem with them.

Also remember that your windage range is restricted when you are at maximum or minimum internal elevation. You can't apply maximum elevation and windage simultaneously due to the round scope tube. You won't need large amounts of windage at 100 yards, but you could need 20+ minutes at 1000 on a windy day. There are minor optical distortions that may be more apparent off center, but the biggest reason to stay on center at long range is to have adequate windage adjustment available.
