I have an old (late 70's) Remington 700 BDL.  It currently wears a great, high gloss (or "lustre") Nikon Monarch 16x44mm scope, but I am moving this scope to another rifle.

I picked up a Weaver Classic V24 for cheap, and I'd like to mount that now on my 700.  (Not crazy about putting a matte scope up on this rifle, but I know this will be my better use of the extra magnification that the V24 offers.)

I have some old Burris bases on this 700 right now, but I've never been crazy about them.  I figure I should probably try to match bases and/or rings to the matte color of this new scope as much as possible.  I want to keep this 42mm objective as low as possible also, but I will probably be putting some Butler Creek flip-up caps on. 

I've seen Dednutz and while from an alignment perspective I think this is a great idea, they're a little bulky IMO.  The Talley's I've seen, like Warne, usually lose with a sharp upward seam - not sure I'm crazy about this look either.  I've heard great things about Burris Signature rings, would these be an option for me?  I guess Leupold probably has a good solution for the 700's - pretty sure that's whose rings are on there right now.  I'm not looking to give a 'tactical' look to this rifle - already have a Tikka as my 'black gun'. 

Please let me know if there are any Rem 700 / Weaver V24 users out there and what you are using, or what other brands/products I should be considering for this project -thanks!

Those VR Series rings are beautiful, I'll definitely bookmark this site for futures - thanks.  But I'm not looking to put a rail on this particular rifle.
