Hello from Maine,

I am going to be getting a 24" AR15 flat top varminter (from Model1sales) and am strongly considering getting a Super Sniper 20X for it.

What is the best ring/mount solution for this?

Thank you,
Craig

I will not say this is the best way but it has worked out well for me. ARMS 36 EXT Swan Sleeve and Leupold QRW high rings. The ARMS mount allows you to move the scope foward enough to get a comfortable cheek weld. By the way, I do have a 20X SS on my RRA.

That is a sweet rig!

Mine will be very similar, only chrome-moly barrel and green furniture.

I recently read that Warne makes "ultra high" specifically for the AR, I found a pic of it with SS (see attached), I wonder if that eye relief is good? In the pic they have the 10X with 4" of eye relief, the 20X with 3.5" eye relief would be closer.

How do you like the SS 20X on that rig?

Cheers,
Craig

Howdy,

I just read some good things about the 'Model 1 Sales'  1 piece mount for flat top. This same mount is offered by JT and MA. I think all the kit sellers use the same parts! (all say forged, ER Shaw, ect)

Apparently the mount is all steel, heavy duty.

Here is a link to it at M1dway with review:

and here is a link to it's review on ar15.com:

Since I am ordering a kit I may as well order that and save on shipping. I also like the idea that it is steel and heavy duty.

Cheers,
Craig

Badger Ordnance ultra high rings or Armalite makes a one piece like the one above, several companies make risers IOR, ARMS etc that allow use of standard height rings.

I bought the Burris extreme tactical (6 torx screws each) for my SS scope on my AR. The rings fit the "inexpensive" MO of the super sniper perfectly. They also work well.
