Due to the sheer number of variations in quality, compatibility, comfort, and aesthetics, GrabAGun Customer Service cannot offer specific recommendations for scope systems. We can, however, get you started in the research and decision-making process to find the best fit for you.
Tips to find the best scope, ring, or base for your gun:
Quality comes with a price! There is an old saying that a "scope price should be equal to or greater than the cost of the rifle." While there is some truth and reasoning behind this, you should also consider what you are looking for in a scope. Some advanced and costly features may not be useful for you. Common features to consider are:
- Glass Quality
- Reticle design
- Bullet Drop Compensation
- Adjustment controls
Be sure to select the ring size that corresponds to your scope diameter. Most scopes have main tubes that are one inch in diameter, which will require 1" rings. Some scopes have thirty millimeter main tubes, which require 30mm rings.
To determine the required height for your rings, consider the diameter of the objective lens of your scope. As a rule of thumb:
- ≤40mm objective = low ring
- 42-45mm objective = medium ring
- 50mm objective = high ring
Since many modern guns come from the manufacturer already pre-drilled and tapped for bases and/or the appropriate mounting attachments, it is important to first make sure that the base and mount you choose are compatible with your firearm.
Next, consider your options. Many types of bases secure your rings to the firearm. These attach directly to your firearm using screws, clamps or dovetails, depending on the type. Some products even offer an "all-in-one" ring and base combination in a single piece.
