I run with a few older guys and for years have been trying to increase their appreciation for "better optics". One of them just purchased a Mod 70 in 270win and a Conquest 3-9x40. I'd like to get him a set of LW Talley's http://swfa.com/Talley-Lightweight-Aluminum-1-Scopemount-P2838.aspx.
Can I get by with the "Low" mounts?

As said above, great choice of rifle, scope and mounts.

 
I own numerous Talley lightweight mounts (thank you Optics Talk) and have never had to lap a set of them.

I guess in all fairness you could lap, but I've never done so.  

I have changed my scopes back and forth and to and fro between these rings and I have witnessed NO ring marks to date. My vertically split ring Talley's have left ring marks, but not horribly so.

This will be my first time with the LW. I've been pleased with their rimfire and fixed rings so far.

Gotta say, I've grown to respect some of the opinions here on OT. Not only do they have a big influence on my decisions, the knowledge I pickup from here, makes me look,,,,,,,,smarter!

I think you must have arrived in the same boat I did... Wink
 
This forum is FANTASTIC for learning about Optics, Guns and reloading!
 
One of the nicest things about the OT is that they don't jump all over you with both feet when you ask questions and they strive to clearly answer you no matter how basic or totally off base your question is.
 
I have yet to find another forum as knowledgable and free sharing of its knowledge base to all that visit.  They only ridicule and tease those they know and like...
 
Oh and welcome aboard!!! Hope you stick around.  It's always nice to have fresh meat.....er.... new faces. Cool

They shall not be your last, I assure you Sir! My objective size on this Leo is 40mm, like your Conquest. 



In all honesty. I think more people would buy them if they weren't so ridiculously low priced. I think people see the price and think for $40 they can't be good. Our Gracious Host, Chris Farris, has been talking these rings up for a long time.

They are solid!!!  I love that they do away with the connection interface one usually has between rail and rings.... one less set of screws to worry about coming loose.  That and the clean and open look you get with no weaver or pic rail.  Also alieviates casing ejection port crowding that might happen with rail that accludes ejection port.

In my field of work, the fewer components the better.  Talley's simple "one-piece" ring/mount design really appeals to since of order.

And that 700 really appeals to since of taste! Big Grin

I concur. Less really is more, in this case. I swear if the good folks at Talley would raise the price tag of these up to $75.00 or so, they would sell more.

Thank you. 

I posted that picture to show you about how a 40mm objective scope would sit.

Ah yes, the old "distraction from the original question" trick...
