I am looking to buy a riser and rings for this gun I'll need at least 1 1/2 inch to 2 inches to get a proper weld . I haven't got a scope yet but am shopping for a riser and mounts .My questions are

1. should I buy the riser with the built in rings ,the two small risers and seprate rings ,the seprate one peice riser and then rings or the talliest rings I can find?

2.what do I need to spend to get a good product ?I see some risers and rings and combos in the Shot gun news for as little as 20 dollars and then there's some makers selling the exact same type of mount for 150 dollars what's the diff?

The diff is that one is made from high quality materials to very tight tolerances and using a very durable finish, and the other is a cheap piece of shit made in China from pot metal and with a finish that won't survive it's first contact with a liquid. You get what you pay for.

Think of it like you would cars.

"what do I need to spend to get a good product? I see some Hyunadais with fancy spoiler for as little as 20,000 dollars and theres there's some Ferrari dealers selling cars with the exact same type of spoiler for 150,000 dollars what's the diff?"

As a bottom line, RRA makes a nice 1 piece mount that you can find new for under $50 from dealers in the Equipment Exchange forums.

So I can use the Rock River Riser/ring unit as a bottom line . will this allow me all the accuarcy of the higher priced mounts?

Yes, you can........but, if I was going the one piece route..........ARMALITE.

Now, this is what I would do:
www.sawlesales.com
They have the
SA09090 ***CLEARANCE*** G.G. & G., STANDARD RAIL 35.00
They did have the Scout Rail on clearance for @ $50......I bought both a few months back.

Then go find some Loopy QRW Medium matte rings for @ $50

This leaves the rail on the upper and you can change out different optics that have rings very easily.

In order to achieve proper eye relief I went with

1.A Bushmaster riser and a Bushmaster extended riser together they will allow me to mount the scope forward enough to get a good weld.

2. Rings I have been advised by a friend who is a counter sniper L.E.O to go with a simple pair of Leupold Rifleman rings. He stated that under the light recoil of a heavy barreled AR the Leupod rifleman rings will do fine. I was told to go with the vertical split rings because they are straighter than the side split. Why Are the vertical rings straighter?

I have that rifle and this Armalite mount works perfectly for my needs.

If interested, I have a set of high Leupold PRW rings and an ARMS 19 that they would mount nicely on.... I have tried this set up on my flat-top and I was able to fit a KAC 600m under the scope nicely. I'm selling the $19 on the EE for $120 shippied right now & I'd throw in the rings for $20 extra ($145 shipped for all). Let me know. moorecd@hotmail.com
