What are some good quality and decent priced rings for a flat top AR

I will be using 40mm or 50mm objective lens, maybe a bushnell elite.

links would be great

The tube diameter is the concern for rings. 1" and 30mm are the popular sizes for most major manufacturers.. I've used Leupold Medium Quick Detach, Badger Heavy High rings and an Armalite 1 piece (using that now with a Bushnell 3200 Elite) all without any issues.

RRA has a great flattop mount that I have on my RRA and I also just got a PROMAG flattop mount for my Bushnell Elite 3200 3X10 that mounts on my Colt 6920.

I got the Burris XTR rings to put my Burris 4.5-14x 44mm scope with adjustable objective on my flattop AR. Each ring has about an inch of contact with the scope tube and is held in place with 6 screws! Serious security for about $50.

I got the high rings but medium would have been plenty for the 42mm scope, even with the adjustable objective on the bell.

I use ARMS 22H on my A3 with a Leupold scope.

They stay zeroed and I have taken them off and on over a dozen times.
I am curious as why you would mount a scope then take it off and need it to hold zero? And then why a dozen times?

I use the AR for everything from range fun, 22 conversion plinking, and 3 gun matches.

I shoot iron sights for 3 gun, the scope for 200+ yard shooting, and a cheap reflex sight for the 22 conversion.

I would use that as justification to have three different rifles!;) But that makes some sense in a twisted-can't-have-three-rifles way.:p

Thanks.
:D

I forgot all about the Burris XTR rings, them there are some mighty fine rings I tell ya. I forgot because I only have 1, I use it for my AimPoint :)

Don, The zero holds quite well with the fully integrated RRA and PROMAG mounts I have.

To Don's question... primarily because you can as wanted shift between Close Range Optics like the AimPoint or EOTech to everything from a 1-4x Short Dot up to larger scopes. You would want to retain the zero on each if you're switching a lot. I can see this happening more with Gun Gamers than actual field operators. Me I just have several rifles set up in slightly differing configurations and don't swap the optics because I have dedicated roles for each. If the Zombies show up, I'll just pull the 10x optic from one rifle and then be able to BOOM! head shot the pesky critters at 200m + with comfort and without eye strain :)
