I just got a zeiss conquest 4.5-14x50 w/ the rapid z 1000 reticle.  I want to mount it on my T/C Icon .308.  The Icon comes with built in rail so I need rings.  What should I get?  I really know nothing about rings.  I have a DNZ one piece mount on my tikka t3 and that's the only other rifle/scope I own.

Help please!

I'm sorry, but I'm not familiar with your firearm. What type of "rail" is it?

I'm sorry - that wasn't very clear.   It has integral weaver style rails built in to the top of the receiver

You got a budget?  You can go from cheap to "holy crap"   Of course some is overrated for the cost and some are great bangs for your buck. 
 
TPS Tactical Scope 1 TPS Tactical Scope 1" Rings
Stock # - TPS30621
  • Medium (.985")
  • Aluminum Alloy
  • Weaver-Style
$64.95 
This would be what I got.

 I probably don't want to spend more than $150 on rings.  Thank you for that recommendation.  I will check them out!

SVT's recommendation is a good one. 

Don't let the price fool you. These TPS rings can run neck and neck with about any other ring maker.

+1 on the TPS rings. I've been running them on a 12 ga. slug gun for several years...without issue.
