    Whats the word on the Burris Xtreme rings for about $42 a pair?

    I was going to get a Larue tactical SPR mount, but Im being forced to cut funds by half or more.

    How high of rings does a scope with a 42mm lens need for clearance?

    The rings are very well built! Here a set of high rings mounted on my AR, with a Bushnell 3200 10x40 scope. You may want to get the x-high, for a more comfortable cheek weld, but the high rings should clear your 44mm scope.

    They work pretty well. They are definitely not the quality of LaRue etc, but then they are much cheaper as well.

    I had one that the cross bolt was made improperly and it popped off as soon as I started to tighten it. I had bought a set and the other one in the set was fine, so I used it. My first one had worked well so I bought the set when I needed another mount. They are on two range guns. I am not sure I would go with them for a real serious rifle, but they are fairly robust and should handle most needs.

    I went with X-High rings which will give a 1/3 co witness with an Aimpoint. I am not sure about scopes. Probably similar.

    I have them on a .308 and a .22. I had the .22's scope on a .50BMG. No problems, QA or otherwise, with either pair on any of the three rifles.

    You will never notice the front sight post.

    Yepp, once you hit about 3X the front sight just washes out.
