I'm just wanting something really reliable and solid. What's y'all's input?
EGW one piece picatinny rail
Badger Ordinance or Talley Tactical rings. The Talleys are aluminum to cut a few ounces.
I run EGW bases on every rifle, and have both brands of rings. I pick up my rifles by the scope tube all the time. I also can take the scope and rings off one rifle and move it over to a different rifle with a 1/2" socket in about thirty seconds.
