I'm looking to get some rings to mount a SWFA 16x42 on my AR-50, the gent on the phone said TPS was the best bet across the board, I'm just looking for the best rings under $100 (preferrably around $50-75).  which TPS are best?  I saw there are multiple series of them.  I like the 6-screw SWFA rings, but if TPS is better I'll go that route, they aren't much more expensive.

Thanks!!!

I would get TPS as well.  Steel should be stronger and I would go with those for a .50.

Either TPS or Badger for sure. TPS still makes a great quality ring for less than Badger. +1 on the steel as well.

The TSR line looks nice to me, and will fit perfect if you have picatinny mil-std rails (i'm assuming you would but im not an expert on the .50).
