The charts made me dizzy

I have a Burris Short Mag 3X - 9x 32mm which I think means a low mount "something". But what size/nomenclature ??? fits the weaver # 50 base. As you probably have surmised, I'm pretty clueless and a real newby here I've already paid for .22 / air rifle mounts because I didn't explain myself properly when I bought the scope from SWFA.
Thanks

Rather than start my own similar thread, I'll piggy back on this one.  I need to know what type of rings I need for my rifle, mount, and scope.  The rifle is a Finnish M39; the mount is a Darrell's scout mount (Weaver); and the scope is a Bushnell 3200 Elite.  I'm assuming low rings but would hate to buy the wrong rings.

 

Looking at different rings, I see that some have two screws per ring and others have four per ring.  Some are steel, some are aluminum, and some are T-whatever aircraft grade aluminum.  Some are pretty inexpensive, and others that look pretty much alike are rather expensive.  Any guidance on all of this would be appreciated, too.

Really depends on your objective size and what size your scope tube is?

 

40mm obj and 1" = Low Rings for Most Brands

50mm obj and 1" = Med. Rings for Most Brands

 

40mm obj and 30mm = Low Rings for Most Brands

50mm obj and 30mm = Med. Rings for some Brands and still Low Rings for other Brands.

 

And you know you need weaver cross bolts.

It's a scout set up, so I'm using a 2-6x32 pistol scope.  The tube diameter is 1".

Thanks.  I see things called "Super Low" rings.  Would these be too low for a 32mm objective end?

 

I also see rings for about $20 and others for just under $200.  To my untrained eye, they all look like they would hold a scope in place just fine.  What kinds of things account for the differences in price among rings?  Are there certain features I should look for or be leary of in rings?
