scope mounts

Buying my first m1a and it's a pretty big investment for me as as im still in college trying to do as much research as possible and im having trouble deciding what mount to put on the rifle. My main contenders are the bassett mounts and the casm mount from m14.ca also if anyone has some good suggestions for 30mm scope rings I'd be grateful as well

I use a Bassett mount. Leupold and many other companies make good rings. Get rings made of steel. Not aluminum.

Welcome, which rifle are you going to go with? You can use the search button to search this forum for anything including your question about mounts and rings, enough info to keep you reading for weeks. Check out Tonybens videos on youtube and this sight. He has a PHD in this rifle platform.

I have a sadlak and like it, but sometimes wish I had gone with the Bassett.

I have a Sadlak steel mounts on both of my scoped M1As. I had many brands but sold them all when I got my first Sadlak.
For rings, I prefer Badger Ordnance.
