Hi guys,

I'm putting the new gen 2 vortex viper PST into my steel sadlak airborne mount. I need some help choosing scope rings. I'm thinking about getting the 30mm badger ordnance standard steel rings. I heard that you should always match steel to steel for mounts and rings. Any suggestions? Thank you!

Badger rings are good I have some leupold mk4 steel rings on my rifle that work fine too. Which vortex scope did you get? The diameter of the objective lens can effect the size rings you get too. I think the norm is medium height rings.

I got the 1-6x, I don't think I'll have a problem with the objective lens with that one. I know the gun is capable of much more than what that scope will provide me with but I don't plan on shooting much more than 100 yards unless I find a range in CT that has long range shooting.

I have tried the Vortex rings and they were terrible, I sent them back but the Vortex precision or the Seekins precision are excellent. I am pretty sure they are made in the same factory cause they look identical but I currently run the Badger Ordnance Max 50 and they are awesome.

Are the vortex/seekins rings steel?
