Rings and Bases

Hi.

I'm wanting to put a new scope on my 22 and thought i'd quite like quick release rings, but i'd has to get a new bases too.

Upon looking at different products, i've noticed a huge difference in prices for rings and bases.
Would cheaper rings and bases be noticeably bad being used on a 22lr?
I thought I better ask as I don't want to get some quick release rings and find they are hopeless.

The rings im looking at are Leapers by the way.

Thanks Sam

SAM, THIS TYPE OF QUESTION SHOULD HAVE BEEN ON THE "SMITHY" SECTION OF THIS FORUM, BUT I WILL BE GLAD TO ASSIST YOU.

GURU1911 GUIDELINES FOR TELESCOPIC SIGHTING SYSTEMS (scope, rings, & bases): "THE COST OF THE OPTICAL SYSTEM SHOULD EQUAL OR EXCEED THE PRICE PAID FOR THE FIREARM"

BUY ALL-STEEL BASES & RINGS. NO SEE-THRU OR QUICK REMOVE SYSTEMS.
BUY A 1" DIAMETER 4-POWER FIXED SCOPE IN THE $100 TO 200 DOLLAR BRACKET. MOUNT THE SCOPE AS LOW AS POSSIBLE WITHOUT TOUCHING ANYTHING.

Is your .22 drilled and tapped for a scope base? Most .22 rifles have a rail for the rings. I am not aware of any quick release rings for a .22 rail.

I was going to buy a Weaver style rail for it to, and yes it is drilled and tapped, but if it wasn't it wouldn't be hard to get it done.

Attention: Doyle

I type in large bold caps because i have visual problems as a result of multiple mini-strokes. The optic nerve in my rt. Eye is dead because of a lack of blood supply. My lt. Eye has a cataract & both are affected from glaucoma. I can no longer drive & home-bound most of the time. Therefore, my computer allows me access to people outside of my immediate & extended family. I was forced to retire from my 32 year career as a safety & environmental engineer because of my health issues.

The staff moderators of this forum and those members who regularly read my threads & responses, are aware of this reason for the capital letters. Hopefully my explanation to you will suffice.

I remain devoted to this forum, the shooters who participate. America, & the second amendment of the constitution.
