Hey guysHowdy Found this forum on RFC and thought I would give it a try.
 
I need help selecting a mount set up for my Ar-15 Flat top.
 
I plan to mount a Nikon 3x9x40mm scope (3.6/3.7 inch eye relief)
 
What do I need to mount it?
Do I need a riser?
What height rings?
Does the riser need to extend past the receiver rails?
 
Thx for any info.

I used these to mount a bushnell 4200 3-9x on an AR and they are perfect for it.  Nothing else needed.

Over tightened screws are the worst enemy of scopes. most only require 16-20 inch lbs. of torque. Welcome to the OT.

Warne recommends 25 for their rings.  and if you get one of these you have no worries.

True if I go aluminum I will definitely pic up one of those also.
 
On a different note, is there a way to edit posts on here?

Or was that just me? It let me take one out? Did you have to put two in the cart to get you two rings or just one in the cart?
