    I have ordered a 3x9 40mm Vortex DiamondBack Scope for my Marlin 336C in .30-30 and wanted to see what kind of rings y'all are using. I have a set of Weaver rings that I don't really care for as they require 4 straight slot screws per ring. All my other rifles use Leupold rings/bases with only two torx screws per ring. I was sold the Weaver Sure Grip high rings and a Weaver 63b base without realizing they used slotted screw heads, but I like to standardize as much as possible on my rifles/scopes and I do not want two types of screw heads on my rings. Also, I would rather only have to check four screws on my scope instead of eight. I also prefer the looks of the torx heads.

    How do people like the Weaver Sure Grip rings? Are they comparable to Millets or Leupolds? Should I also replace my 63b base and go with a two piece Millet or Luepold base? Is it better to have a one piece base like a 63B or can you achieve better alignment with your rings if you have two piece bases?

    1 or 2 piece base is just a matter of personal preference.
    The Milletts are on the tall side, so lows are probably high enough for that scope.
    But, since you're having good luck with the Leupolds, maybe you should stick with that.

    Check into the Burris Signature Zee rings with the inserts. Much better than the choices listed.
