Looking for the lowest set of rings I can get for a flat top AR. Need 30mm rings for a 50mm bell. I'm having a hard time finding specs on the mounts height.

Badger high on a Badger 20 MOA riser, is what I'm running.

May need extra high if going directly to the flattop.

Or look into LaRue one piece mounts.

I've run Seekins high and Aadland high on my AR10's just fine. I don't see the need for the REPR type mount for this application.

This one's from my early shooting days! I will say the desert tech monopod is a bad mama jama though. Will totally change your outlook on monopods.

Jeff1383- that's the height I'm looking for. Does Larue only make the QD mounts? I have zero use fit that and would prefer a more permanent mount

I just used a Nikon M-223 mount to mount a 50mm scope on my latest AR build. Solid one-piece design, good height, good eye relief position. Not too shabby for $79.

I went with a Badger Ordnance Unimount 20 MOA and 1.3 inch height. That's a 56mm Nightforce on an AR10.

Would that setup clear with a solid rail on top of the hand guard? I won't be running a 56mm though, but would like the 20moa setup
