My uncle is looking to get a set of Max 50 scope mounts from Badger for his AR-50.
This is their website: http://www.badgerordnance.com/productgroup.php?id=rings
And here is what they say about the Max 50s:
The MAX-50 rings are ONE Inch wide, giving them 60% more holding power than any other ring available. Utilizing 6 #8-40 Torx screws to distribute the load providing the maximum amount of holding power while minimizing the chance of damaging the scope. Machined from steel as "Matched Pairs" and serialized. .823" high, Mil-Std-1913 compatible (Picatinny optic mount) designed for the demanding .50 BMG round. Works with Leupold and Weaver type bases. P/N 306-11.
Can anyone vouch for Max 50's quality/toughness/etc?
Thanks in advance.

I have standard B.O. rings, as opposed to the 50s. The quality is great, but in all honesty, they're just chunks of immobile steel. Maybe I would need to purchase some cheap rings to appreciate my nice ones...


If the friction between standard rings and the scope body would be the weak link for his rifle/base/etc system, go for the 50s. I can't imagine how that would be the case.

Also, on the AR-50, it looks like the base really isn't that long. Although it's minimal, the 50s will cut down on how far forward you can set the scope: about 1/3 of an inch.
