Guys, Do you think I will be ok with a Zeiss 3-9X40 and Talley MED rings for a Browning BAR Safari II????? I just saw the first post with the instructions of how to choose ring height. I always thought it was just personal preference. Thanks---BBoy623

 My guess is that it will be plenty high, and that LOW ones might work better. The Zeiss has a fairly large ocular bell that sometimes causes problems with bolt handle clearance on bolt-action rifles, but of course you don't need to worry about that with a BAR.
 I think I'd order the low ones, unless I really needed to get the rifle running right now.
In that case, I'd order both medium and low, use the ones that worked the best, and pay the restocking fee on the ones that needed to be returned. It's a pretty big total investment, and you want to get it RIGHT, as in perfect.
 
 Check with SWFA to see if they mind you doing it that way...

+1 Ron, this should make a great combination on the Bar.

hmmm, I ordered the Zeiss and Talley rings a couple of weeks ago for my Christmas present from the Mrs. as she said she didn't know what to order. I haven't mounted it yet. I SHOULD  be under an extended holiday return policy with SWFA, but if I'm not and don't like the MEd height---you're right, I'll pay the restocking fee and have my investment EXACTLY like I want her. I think I'll be ok though as I have some "see-through" mounts now, so the MED rings will be lower than what i currently have. I'll be so glad to get that POS Tasco off of my Browning and finally have some nice glass atop her!---Bboy623
