I'm new to precision rifles and have been doing alot of reading these past few weeks.  I recently go a customized remington 700 at a local gun show (Hart barrel, h-s stock, shilen trigger, etc.)... The gun had rings but no scope.  After reading the reviews I've decided to start out with a SWFA Super Sniper 10X42M scope.  I don't know what size rings are on the gun... there was no names on them and they look alittle beat up.... figured I might replace them.

 

I understand I need 30mm rings, but what about height...I see people talking about low, high, etc....

 

Do anyone have any advice to give me about rings for this rifle & scope combo.

 

I really appreciate your time & effort.

What bases came with the weapon, two piece dovetail bases, 20 moa rail? Medium height rings will more than likely work. but what type of rings will depend on the bases.

Thanks Steelbenz...  Its a 2 piece dove tail.  I think I might replace it with a single piece base.  You're the 2nd person to mention that medium height rings would probably do the trick.  I appreciate your time!
