I think this is discussed in a similar thread, but I couldn't find a straight answer. I want to buy a scope that has a 42mm objective on it. So my question is, with the standard tikka rings will it fit? thanks guys. Edit: lol, if you couldn't tell I want to mount it on a tikka t3.

There's no way to know of sure because ring height isn't standardized and neither is the shape of a scope or the scope base for that matter.

Generally speaking, you shouldn't have a problem with a 40mm objective on medium rings, but there are always exceptions, I'm sure. I'm assuming the tikka rings are medium height...

I use Burris Signature medium height rings and managed to mount my 50mm scope on my Marlin bolt gun but just barely. If you can get the dimensional specs of the scope you're looking out, you can find out for sure by comparing how much clearance you'll have from the tikka's barrel.

Yes the rings that came with it are a medium ring and will work for a one inch tube 42mm objective scope.  If however you are shooting a heavy caliber like 300 WM or even a 30-06 i would suggest you buy Talley lightweight rings and discard the ones that came free.  On light calibers like .223 the free ones should hold up OK.
