Just bought a Tikka t3 in 270 and was wondering what are some good rings for this gun??Where
I bought the gun had some Leupold high rings that they said would work well with a 56mm scope
for 50 bucks.Is that about right for the price and any suggestions on other helpful or good info
about a good set of rings for a Tikka T3 and ones to stay away from. Also the rings that came with
the gun are silver and can only hold up to a 44mm scope, they same really cheap and I'm not
fimiliar with that ring attachment system.Any thoughts on that system. Thanks for any help.

I own 2 Tikka T3s right now, one in .270 and one in 300WM - and neither wear the original, cheap, stamped aluminum rings.  Just a few short weeks ago, I posted on this very forum a picture of a friend's Tikka ring mounted on a 300WM that had the staking pin on the front ring rip through the back of the ring body.


I asked the same advice some time ago and was told Leupolds are OK, Warnes are great.  Since then, I have bought 3 pair of Warne rings, 2 QD and one standard, and have been very pleased with all 3.  The Warne high rings will accomodate a 56mm.  My friend (with the ring problem) bought a set of Leupold high rings and one was the proper Tikka ring and the other was not.


So, I hear from some that Leupolds ain't bad.  I know from personal experience that Warne makes a quality steel ring for a Tikka; however, they ain't easy to find.  For certain, I wouldn't use an aluminum ring. 


Chris, what does SWFA offer in a high ring for a Tikka?
