    Sightron SIII 8-32X56 Scope finally came in after touring every UPS facility in the country.
    Need some good 30mm rings. Will be going to the city tomorrow, via Shawnee, who's has some in stock?
    Let me know this evening if you have any ideas.
    I used a good suggestion for measuring the height for clearance by using pennies. Ha.
    21mm or about .82" keeps the bell off the barrel with sunscreen.

    Don't want to lap the rings. I say than not knowing anything about lapping rings.

    Ah, well, I like the Vortex Tactical rings or the Weaver Tacticals also. You really need to lap the Vortex tactical rings but the Weavers dont seem to need it very badly. Even Vortex says you should lap those. If I didnt have a ring lapping kit I would buy either the Weaver Tactical or try the Vortex Pro Riflescope Rings. I believe they also go by the name Vortex Viper Rings. Those are CNC milled and shouldnt need any extra attention. But Im on a budget and those are based on the fact that I am on a budget but also cant afford to buy junk.

    Vortex Hunter rings may be worth a look. Ive never used those. I like to have larger rings for heavy recoiling guns or just in case it gets banged around.

    Check BDC Gunroom. They've got a pretty good selection of accessories.

    Planned on stopping by there to shoot anyway. Guess I'll check there first. Who has lapped a scope ring?
    Do you have to buy a tool for it? I've watched a few vids on it but never tried it.
    Help appreciated.

    I've lapped quite a few sets. I have the kit that does 1" or 30mm rings. Ill never mount a new set of rings on a rifle again without lapping them, unless its just a 22 or something.
