    Vx6 2-12. Rings measure 12.5mm from top of action to bottom of scope tube.
    I think from memory they were a luepy med high. They were perfect with the vx3 4.5-14x50 but could go lower now with the 44?mm vx6

    I can fit a 4mm beer coaster between the tightest point and still have around a mm barrel clearance.
    So you will get away with any ring that measures 8.5mm or more from top of action to bottom of circle.

    Optilock ring mounts will do the trick.
