Hello I will be purchasing a new scope in the next few months for my Kruger .270 M77. I was going to get a trijicon 2.5-10x56 accu-point 30mms. Also was going to get new accu-point rings from trijicon what height should I get. Also they sell both aluminum and steel rings which should I get.

They sell rings?

I know absolutely nothing of them, and for that reason, I would purchase a known quality ring.  They may be selling rings, but what they know is optics (the 2.5-10 is a very good scope, I owned one and loved it, sold it because it was too large for the AR it sat atop.)

Buy a set of medium, quality rings.  Aluminum saves on weight and, if well made, can hold up to your abuse.  I have a set of Talley light weight rings on my Tikka 270 and they have held up nicely.

I agree, yet slightly differ with Mr. Coolaide on one point. 

I have neither seen, nor used Trijicon rings, but I would "assume" that they would be of good to great quality, sight unseen. If the price was comparable to other quality rings, I might would pop the coin for them, based on Trijicon's stellar reputation in all things optical.    

That said, if the rings in question are to be mounted on a hunting rifle, then I would probably go with aluminum over steel to save weight, as Mr. C already rightly mentioned. 

And now we are talking aluminum/light weight, hunting rings and we enter the arena in which the one piece, Talley Light Weights reign supreme, (IMHO) especially when cost is a consideration. $40.00 and you get the rings and mounts in one fell swoop. Your done.....
Again, as RC has already intelligently stated.

SRS demonstrates that even Trijicon makes mistakes. And when they do, they don't take care of the customer who bought their mistake.

But mostly I like Trijicon too.

Doesn't Ruger rifles come with their own rings? Just curious how they are.

Why use Rugers when you can get Talleys?

I was merely asking the original poster one, if his rifle came accompanied with the Ruger propitiatory rings, and secondly, what his thoughts on those were.

Unless your Ruger M77 is one of the rare, early "round top" receiver models made in the 1970's that had drilled and tapped screw holes, your M77 has their proprietary integral dovetail mounting system, which limits your ring choices.

Trijicon only offers rings for Picatinny bases, so unless they recently introduced some kind of adapter base or ringmount for Ruger, they don't make anything that will work on a Ruger M77.

The same goes for Talley; they don't make mounts for the Ruger M77.

If you don't want to use the Ruger rings that came with your rifle or buy new Ruger rings, your only other options I'm aware of are Leupold, Burris, Warne, or Conetrol. I know of no other manufacturer that currently makes scope mounts for the Ruger M77.

Regardless of which rings you choose, you will need "high" rings for a 56mm objective.

I ordered 30mm rings direct from Ruger. The Leupold ones are not stainless but Ruger's are. The other possible is to use this adapter.

Good deal! I wasn't aware Burris offered a Weaver style base adapter for M77.

However, this all begs the question:
Other than being on the heavy side and maybe not being the most sleek or elegant system available, what's wrong with the Ruger Rings? They're extremely strong, foolproof, and reasonably priced. As long as there are good quality ringmounts available that mount directly to the receiver, I wouldn't intentionally add a separate base. I'm a fan of the K.I.S.S. philosophy.

I like my ruger rings I just figured I needed new ones with the 56mm. And I was getting a trijicon scope I'd get their rings. But I will probably go with higher rugers. So I will need high rings for that scope?

Had a similar problem wanting to mount a 44MM scope on a Ruger 77 that came with the standard "medium" integral rings. The mediums would only handle 42MM and under. After contacting Ruger and several other companies, I learned that Ruger rings are steel castings (and heavy to me). The high rings I purchased from Redfield for my Ruger are also very heavy and out of proportion (at least to me) kicking the scope eyepiece much higher above the stock than I like. As of my call to Talley some 2 months ago, they do not make aluminum rings for the Ruger rifle. Burris does make a "Weaver style" adapter, however.

I see the biggest objective diameter is 52mms from ruger with their high rings.

Then your only other option I'm aware of is to get the Weaver style adapter base U-frnd recommended above, along with high rings for Weaver bases. You can also use Picatinny style rings if you widen the recoil grooves on the Weaver bases by about 0.025".

Any brand of Picatinny style "high" 30mm rings.

For example:
http://swfa.com/Seekins-Precision-Scope-30mm-Rings-P47916.aspx

But there are several other quality choices, depending on how much you want to spend.

Just be aware that if you mount Picatinny rings on a Weaver style base, it will work, but you will usually need to enlarge the recoil slot slightly, since the recoil pin in a Pic ring is about 0.020 - 0.025" thicker than the cross bolt on a Weaver style ring. Weaver rings fit on Picatinny bases, but Pic rings don't typically fit on Weaver bases. The difference in those two styles of bases is the width and spacing of the slots.

I have to warn you, though: although it will function fine, it's going to look like crap (to my eyes at least), but that's the tradeoff you have to accept with picking a 56mm objective scope for a Ruger M77 rifle. It's not just a Ruger thing; rifles that use proprietary rings with limited mount selection (Sako is another example) limit the range of scopes you can use somewhat. Some combinations just don't go well together. This is one of them.
