My Smith mount is Picatinny. Bought some Leupold low rings, works like a champ.

The slots are a little wider on the picatinny. Weaver rings will fit, but they will have a little slop unless you push them forward while tightening them. Picatinny rings will not fit a Weaver rail. I would get a Picatinny base so you can use either type of ring if you need to.

Go Picatinny. All the top rings are made for the Picatinny rail. Why limit yourself?
