Thank you for your interest! Proper choice and installation of a scope system is arguably one of the most important decisions that can affect the performance and success of your firearm. Due to the sheer number of variations of quality, compatibility, comfort, and aesthetics, Grabagun Customer Service cannot offer specific recommendations. We humbly ask (and strongly recommend) that you do considerable research with actual manufacturers before placing an order for a scope or mounting system, to ensure compatibility.
Here are some basic tips that may help start your research and decision-making process:
Quality comes with a price! There is an old saying that "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:
-Bullet Drop Compensation
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
There many types of bases that secure your rings to the firearm. These attach directly to your firearm using screws, clamps, or dovetails, depending on the type.
Some firearms come drilled and tapped and ready for mounting directly from the manufacturer, while others may require gunsmithing. Some guns come with a Picatinny or Weaver-style "rail" base already installed.
Some products offer an "all-in-one" ring and base combination in a single piece.
We hope this information was helpful for you, though we apologize that the sheer complexity of the puzzle is "beyond the scope" of more specialized service. We wish you the best with your research and build.
