Ed, perhaps you could help the guy with some answers, rather then sit there with your popcorn?

Back on topic:

First of all, this website is supported by SWFA and we try to avoid linking competitors' websites on this forum.

CZ rings attach directly to the receiver (there are cutouts there just for that purpose).  The rings are certainly high enough.  I think you would have been fine with medium rings just as well.  You do not need any separate mount or base.

As for the other accessories, I am not entirely sure what you need the scopesmith cover for, if you are getting Alumina flips.

Don't CZ's still come with rings?  I believe they come with 1" rings tall enough to run a 50mm obj.  The quality of the rings themselves are outstanding.  They even have witness marks on the ring halves so you can't get them backwards/mismatched.   If you were gonna run a 30mm tube I wonder if CZ would do an exchange like Ruger does.

Links removed.

Oh, and welcome aboard, sir.

When you get a chance, post a picture of your set up (if you are not sure of how to post the picture, you can e-mail it to me and I'll post it for you).

I like CZ rifles, they shoot well and look good to me.

I am glad you are looking at their website.  SWFA customer service is top notch and I think you will find the product selection is superb (just for the record, I do not work for SWFA).

I suggest you look through the website for what you need and then give them a call.  That way you can figure out exactly if they have the items you need in stock and how long it would take to get them.

Also, if you are considering other options, describe in a bit more detail what you are looking for in a scope and your price range and perhaps we can also come up with some alternatives you can look at.

Budget: not over $1,000.00

I do not think anyone here particularly hates Leupold.  I think most people here believe that there is more efficient use of your hard earned money though.

Anyhow, for what you need there are quite a few good options where you not have to spend a thousand dollars.  If you do want to spend right around a thousand, IOR 2.5-10x42 Hunting scope with HR-5 reticle will fit all of your requirements:
http://www.swfa.com/p-12304-ior-25-10x42-hunting-30mm-rifle-scope.aspx


For a bit less money here are two very good options:
Sightron S2 3.5-10x44 with MilDot
Bushnel Elite 6500 2.5-16x42 with MilDot
Meopta Meostar 3.5-10x50 or 4-12x40

I do not own a CZ rifle.  The only things I could have helped him out on are the things that I know about the CZ:......that they require ringmounts ( which he was ready to order ); and that he would, more than likely, need medium rings. 
 
I assumed that some CZ owners would get on here pretty quickly, and I was interested in what they had to say from first hand experience. 
 
Very interesting.

My bad.  You know your way around rifles, so I automatically assumed you have messed with CZs.  Nice rifles by the way, especially if you like Mausers.

I certainly know know my way around CZ's, Koskin.  [We used to call them Brno ZKKs]  But I have never owned one.  Since we are supposed to be a SERIOUS FORUM now I figured that I shouldn't open my mouth unless I had " hand's on experience"......

The other 300 firearms that I have had experience with don't seem to be mentioned very often on this forum .......but they are on other forums....
 
Adios, amigo.

For some reason.. i've decided to get this...Leupold are great scopes.. overpriced.. but since they're slashing price everywhere :) heheh.. now's the time to get one :)
 
Yes.. i heard that they were gonna release the new VX models.. but still at a high price.. might as well get a old one.. with 30-40% "discounts".
 
Here's what i choose..
 
 
with free:
 
 
and scope rings..
 
or
?????????????????????
 
here's my question.. since this scope has a cresent cut for lower mount.. should i get the medium rings for the CZ 550??? Ed Connelly mentioned that i should get medium rings ("need medium rings")
 
just confirming.. about to finalize the order but got a bit reluctant with the high and medium ring :)
 
thanx for the help guys :) SWFA :) thanx for the freebies :) your sight rocks too :)

This is a 1" tube scope, so you need 1" rings.  I think you will be fine with medium rings. 

Post a picture when you put all this together.
