1.5" tall rings for hunter class smallbore

Post by gard72977 » Sun Aug 20, 2017 6:28 pm

I just bought a 1712 and need a set of 1.5" tall 1" rings to mount a Leupold 25x.

I like the Edge rings but would like a black set. Looking for a really clean setup. What are my options?

Other than the Morr Edge rings, the BKL ring/riser combo seems to be the most popular option. Maybe not as slick-looking as the Morr rings but they measure exactly 1.45" tall and come in black or silver.

BKL-257 rings: http://www.bkltech.com/BKL-6-Long-Dovet ... kl-257.htm
BKL-181 risers : http://www.bkltech.com/BKL-0-6-Long-Dov ... kl-181.htm

I ran this combo on a CZ 452 for almost two years but then got a 1710 and dropped down to the BKL high rings without the riser (0.975" tall).

Of course you could always get the Morr rings painted. Some guys do that so the rings match their rifle's color scheme.

Good luck.

Get them powder coated in the color you like. If you choose black, most places will give you a discount if you wait until they have another project which they are shooting black. I had my al. trigger guard done in flat black several years ago and not a scratch on it yet.

Thanks guys. Im just going to get the Silhouette Edge rings. Its a shooting competition, not a gun show.

If I kick butt, other people will use silver rings. If I suck they will say " He dont know what he is doing. Look at those silver rings on a blued gun"

Im just going to tell everyone " These are super competition rings, and thats the way they come."
