    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:
    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.
