My wife bought me a Nikon Monarch for Xmas. It is a 4-16x42. It will be mounted on a Savage Model 12FV. I'm looking at the Warne Maxima Rings and Bases. What Height ring will I need. I was trying to get them ordered tonight and their office is closed so I cant get any info from them and their website doesn't seem to have dimensional drawings.

The other rings I was kind of considering were the Burris extreme rings and bases, so I anyone could recommend a ring height for them in case I change my mind, I would certainly appreciate it.

Meduim Rings work for a 42mm scope you really dont need high rings until you get to 50mm.

I really like the dual dovetail rings as there is no way for them to come out of allignment or come loose over time. I also really like this Burris Signature ring system of plastic inserts within the ring, first it prevents the scratch marks other rings leave on the scope, and secondly because you can use the system on inserts to very easily shim or add plus or minus minute of angle should you determint that you need to do so with your scope.  Many scoped do not have enough internal adjustment so this can be an advantage.  I have had good luck with the Warne rings also and I have heard good thing about the Burris extreme tactical rings however If I'm looking for tactical rings Badger Ordnance, GG&G  or ARMS would be the best.

So, low are too low for a 42mm objective? I assume this is dependent on what make of ring as well?

Low rings for a 42 mm bell depends on the rifle.  I could put them on my Model 70, but needed the mediums for proper cheek weld.  I'd suggest the mediums just to be safe.

I ordered medium height rings. I think they will be about right. I'll know in a few days.

I use medium Warne's for a 40mm scope and Warne base, should be perfect for you.

 I would go medium as well. It won't be to high & it's nice to be able to get at the ejection port & cycle the bolt without problems.
