I'd love to know what the lowest height rings I can use for my Winchester Model 70 Classic Sporter, New Haven-built CRF action in .270 Win. It wears these Warne Maxima 2-piece bases and I want to use Warne Maxima Permanent Attach 1" Rings (or the corresponding Zeiss rings) with my Minox ZA-5 2-10x40 scope. The dope on the scope is as follows:

  • Windage/Elevation:
    Reticle Adjustment/per Click 1/4" at 100 yards
    Windage reticle travel - total 72 MOA
    Elevation reticle travel - total 72 MOA
  • Power Selector:
    Magnification high power (+/- 5%) 10
    Magnification low power (+/- 5%) 2
  • Objective Lens:
    Clear aperture (mm) 40
    Parallax setting or adjustment range 100 yds
  • Eyepiece:
    Eye relief >4.0
    Exit pupil high 4.0
    Exit pupil low 20.0
    Eyepiece - diopter (min) -2
    Eyepiece + diopter (min) 1.5
  • Image:
    Field of View Low Power - ft100 yds 47.5
    Field of View High Power - ft100 yds 9.4
  • Lens Coating:
    Fully multicoated w/M* Coating yes
  • Mechanical:
    Main tube diameter 1 inch
    Overall length (a) 12 3/16"
    Main tube length (b) 5 9/16"
    Front mounting distance (c) 2 3/16"
    Rear mounting distance (d) 2 3/16"
    Objective bell length (e) 3"
    Eyepiece assembly length (f) 3 9/16"
    Objective diameter (g) 1 7/8"
    Eyepiece diameter (h) 1 9/16"
    Weight 14.1 oz
    Finish Matte
I know Mediums will work but I'm hoping to go with Lows.

I appreciate any help y'all can give. Thanks!

I'm pretty sure lows will work.

My Winchester Model 70 Classic Sporter has Weaver bases and a longer, 50mm objective scope.

Medium Maximas give plenty of clearance on mine.

I too have a Win. 70 Custom Classic . It is sporting a Leupold 40 mm scope with low rings. Plenty of room left.
