    Who makes the lowest 30mm rings ?

    As the title suggests , I'm looking for the lowest 30mm rings that will fit a picatinny style base .
    At the moment I'm using some Burris Signature Zee rings which I really rate highly , but even the lowest ones I can get are to high . I want to get the scope lower .
    The scope could easily be lowered 5 mm and that would be perfect for eye alignment .
    Any suggestions of quality rings that will get my scope lower ?

    You could ditch the rail and mount to the action like a proper rifle, oh its a Blaser sorry.

    if you do, you might struggle to get flip open, scope caps to fit on (at the barrel end) if your going to use them.

    Yup Warne's are pretty low ( but pricks of things to set up ) or Weaver Tacticoools are'nt far behind and are not bad for price

    I'll put my rigs out'a the safe & have a measure for ya
    Shoot it, root it & then BBQ it !!!

    Right Ive done some rough measurements ( it's tricky getting calipers in there )

    so from base of the rail ( the bottom, inside the grovey bits ) Weaver low tacticools 9.5mm, Warne ( I think they're lows ) 8.8mm

    hope this helps

    Thanks for the replies fella's .
    I'm still doing research , but at the moment I think the lowest I can find is the old style weaver rings , but even they are not massively lower than the rest .
    Obviously there isn't much of an interest in really ultra low 30mm rings these days as most of the makers seem to cater to the tactical , who cares how high they are crowd
    Maybe I'll just live with what I've got . I really like the Signature Burris rings with their inserts and I have another barrel coming that I'll set up with the same rail mounts , but I'll use some 25mm Burris Signatures that I have for that combo .
    I'm a real fan of proper gun fit and having your eye naturally line up with the sights ( the result of years of shotgunning ) .
    I haven't wanted to add a comb raiser , but might have to .
