I have a Arms #18 ordered and on the way, What height should I go with for the rings, low, medium, or high ??? As of now the scope I am going to use is a Super Sniper 20x... :? The gun is a SA NM M1A... 8)

Aloha 4 Rings,

I have used medium and low 30mm rings for my ARMS #18 setup with the Tasco SS scope.

The thing to watch for is the ocular bell hitting the rear sight. I used the medium rings (ARM #22M) and it just cleared the rear sight without me having to lower it, but is was just by a hair.

I hope this works for you.

Aloha,

Tom O.

^UPDATE^ The Arms #18 is installed with the 20x Super Sniper and some cheap Weaver 30mm high rings...With a good set of high rings, I'm leaning towards the Arms also, its a good combo...The Arms #18 is a quality piece for sure... Mike 8)

Hey there 4_rings welcome :) . I have the A.R.M.S. mount with the ARMS Low rings with my VXIII 3.5X10 X50 mm and it clears everything just fine on my Fulton. I really like the ARMS QD rings cuz I've had my scope off MANY times and it has ALWAYS gone back to zero with out any problem! :) Good luck.

Hey there 4_rings,,I'm in the Oneida area and I shoot at the www.oneidarifleclub.com nice place and its close for me,,wish they had longer than 100yrs,but over all its a great place! Even with winter on the way I have walked through snow more than once to put up some targets,,let me know if your ever up this way! :) Hope you get your rings straight,when I bought mine I got them from Fulton,,and Clint told me if they don't work out just send them back and I'll change them for diff. ones,,I'm sure he would do the same!

m1a_scoutguy, I'm limited to 200yds at my club until the 300m is finished, would love to see what I and the gun could do at a longer range...With winter on the way I'm trying to find time to get my handloads dialed in so I can load all winter,I'm a wuss when it comes to our upstate winters !!! 8O

Sounds like you have a nice place to shoot,,lucky you! I wish we had farther,but its probably better that we don't,,I have hard enough time seeing the 100yrd targets,, :) . Anyways I LIVE for winter,,I'm a snowmobiler and even at 50 I still enjoy getting out there! But hey like I said,if the sun is out and its 30 degrees or warmer,,I'll be walking through the snow to put up targets,,I spent to much $$$ on these guns to only shoot them in the summer time! Enjoy them year round!!! :) Take care,,and talk later!
