I'm a new AR-15 owner, I have a nightforce NXS 3.5-15+50 that I want to mount on a flat-top receiver, what would be the best type and brand of scope rings for this application. I was thinking of a one piece ring and base unit. This scope requires a 30mm ring, thanks for all suggestions

Armalite sells a one piece scope mount. It's great for what you have in mind. Steve.

Well, you really should consider the ARMS #22, in whatever height you need, as well as the Armalite. The #22 are 30mm, but you can get inserts to drop it down to 1" should you ever need to. ARMS guarantees these to return to zero when removed and re-attached...don't know about the Armalite. Also, the Armalite mount is much bulkier, and probably heavier, if that's a consideration. The Armalite's a great mount, though, I don't know anyone who has one that doesn't like it.

I have an ArmaLite mount for my M15A4 and have been very pleased with it. I usually don't take my scopes off, but I've done it once or twice with the ArmaLite mount and it has been fine.

The ARMS#22 are nice but... I like the #35 better for two reasons. 1) It allows me more room to more the scope forward than the #22's - eye relief is a real bitch on AR's (unless you have a ARMS sleeve) 2) The #35 is a one piece item which IMHO is a more robust system than the #22. Not sayign I dont like the #22's (I do) I just find the #35 better for AR's

Engineer, Good information, thanks for your input, I think the general opinion seems to favour Arms and Armalite,I'll probably go with one of their products. Thanks to all who offered assistance. Gerry

KevanB. Does the Arms #35 come with different height rings?,It is a one piece mount with base and rings attached is this correct? I am a little confused, when I looked at their Web site, it looked like the mount and rings where separate items, maybe you could enlighten me, I'm suffering a brain freeze, thanks for clarification. Gerry

Gerry, The ARMS has different height spacers. The ring and mount are the same. I am using the #35M (I think the #35H would have been better but...)

KevanB Thanks for clarification, I think Arms #35H might be best way to go. Gerry
