I'm still split between the swfa super sniper 10x42 and the browning elite 3200 10x40, but leaning toward the ss. I like the swfa rings too they're for the 30mm tube and also come with the inserts for the 1" tube. So I think I've decided on those rings.

What I'm not sure is if the short rings will work with a standard rail, or if I'll need the med rings. Appreciate any help.

I guess any ring will work as long as they are good quality and are sturdy. I used a set of Burris XTR rings on my AR-15 which are "inexpensive" and they are worked out really well!

I have the Burris 30mm XTR rings on my SPS Tactical and have been very pleased with them. They are a solid mount and reasonably priced. Mine are medium height with a 42mm Falcon but I have a big noggin so they work fine for me. I know several people who have the SS 10X42 and they really like them. Good luck with whatever you decide.

For good inexpensive rings, go with the Burris XTRs. Good solid rings and strong as all heck. I have them on my SPS Tactical. I have the Lows.

hello everyone. since, it's the same topic, i figured i'd just append to this thread.

i'm planning on mounting a Nikon Monarch 4-16x42SF on my sps tactical. i've settled on the TPS tsr scope rings, but i don't know what size to get. as well as what base to get. i can't decide between the burris two-piece tactical base, or the tps xp tactical one-piece base :( what's the plus and minuses between a one-piece vs a two-piece. and is steel the only way to go?

thx for your help!!

Welcome to the forums!

Since it's a 42mm objective, you could probably get away with lower rings even. If you don't have another gun to look at, the best way is to determine it mathematically. You can usually find the specs on how high the rings are and the base from the manufacturer website. Then add the distance to the center of the cross hair on the scope, which in your case would be 15mm (if it's a 30mm scope tube).

Adding these all up you can use a ruler to get an idea of where the center of the cross hair would be on your rifle.

I hope that all makes sense. I followed a similar process when trying to find the right rings for my AR-15.

I would go with a one piece base, as they are more solid in my opinion, and you won't have any issues in case the mounting holes are slightly out of alignment. I guess the only advantage with steel is that it would be heavier if you are trying to make your rifle as heavy as possible. On my SPS Tactical, I used all steel.

Never had that issue at all. She ejects perfectly.

The one piece bases can interfere with loading the mag if it is full width. Have never heard of/seen an issue with them interfering with ejecting. I use a Badger 1 piece on my SPS T and it is a tight fit to get the rounds in there. That's a big reason why I went with a DBM.



Some one piece bases like the Leupold MkIV have a cutout so there isn't any issue at all. If I had a good picture showing it I would post it but I don't right now.

I PURCHASED A NEW SPS VARMINT IN .223,IT CAME WITH LAST YEARS X MARK PRO
TRIGGER,NOT THIS YEARS X MARK PRO ADJUSTABLE TRIGGER (ALL RIFLES BUILT AFTER
JAN 01 2010 CAME WITH ADJUSTABLE TRIGGER) BUT AFTER READING THE POST HERE
ON HOW TO ADJUST THE X MARK PRO TRIGGER,AND THE WEATHER BEING CRAP TODAY,
I DECIDED TO TRY IT. IT WAS SIMPLE, AND VERY MUCH LIKE ADJUSTING THE OLD
REM TRIGGERS OF WHICH 3 OF MY 700'S HAVE, I MUST SAY I AM EXTREMLY PLEASED
WITH THE OUTCOME. NOT ONLY DOES IT BREAK LIKE GLASS,I WAS ABLE TO GET IT
DOWN UNDER 2 LBS. IT ACTUALLY BREAKS AND IS LIGHTER THAN THE OLDERS TRIGGERS.
I HAD READ SOME NEGATIVES ABOUT THIS TRIGGER AND NOW I AM CONFUSED,ABOUT
WHAT I HAVE BEEN READING.HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS PLEASANT OUTCOME?

RE: inletting-removing material (aluminum and plastic/glass) from the stock to fit the slightly wider/longer/deeper DBM bottom metal.
RE: X-Mark Pro trigger-I broke one right at the hole for the adjustment screw. I really liked the way it felt at about 3#, but from what I understand if your rifle sees a lot of use the adjustment will creep, even with thread locker.

since the factory stock on the sps tactical is rubber. would i have to shave the rubber to make it fit?? or can i just stretch it and shove it in there??

The stock isn't rubber. It has a rubber coating on top of hard plastic and aluminum. Some of the aluminum has to be removed as well. It will not stretch.
