Thanks Ackleyfan! I updated the list. We have a new low!

I originally made this in 2010 and posted it on the old hide. I had to acquire and measure all the various bases. When the hide sold out I baled, but every once in a while I need to reference this list and have to go find it. I figured I'd post it on the Fire, as this is where I spend most of my time these days.

Another option is the American Rifle XLOW M10-1-00-30-20 at 0.79" or 0.20". I haven't used these, but reviews seem to range from positive to glowing. I might give a try.

Would like to hear your opinions if you do.


24HCF in its entirety, is solely responsible for why my children do not have college funds, my mortgage isn't paid-off and why I will never retire early enough to enjoy the remainder of my life.

The ARC mounts will make you toss everything else away. Don't try them. It WILL get expensive.

Don't mar scope. Takes about two minutes to get rings on rail, scope in rings and leveled with no rotation when you tighten down the clamp. Come in extry low and can sure help eye alignment with a rail and a stock with a lower comb. And have been rock solid on everything I've put them on.

Pretty nice attributes, have you had a chance to weigh a pair?

No rotation is a big plus.

Interested in the weight as well.

30mm xlow 4.8oz for the pair
1" xlow 4.7 oz for the pair

For comparison sake a set of XTR sigs 30mm in low are 6.5oz with inserts. This is on Wifey's kitchen scale but it'll get you close.

Someone enlighten me please. The American Rifle XLOW rings are 0.79" from top of the rail to the center-line of the optic or 0.20". What does the 0.20" measurement/height represent?



The distance from the top of the rail to the bottom of the scope tube.

0.79” - 0.59” = 0.20”
