    What are the best shoot through scope rings on the market?

    The ones that you leave on the shelf. Seriously I don't like them so I don't really know. They put your scope too high above the bore.

      None of the makers of quality scope rings and mounts offer such stuff. Most I have seen are flimsy and place the scope too high for high power centerfire rifles.

        I have them on a Ruger .44mag rifle and like them. Easy to switch between scope and iron sights as the situation presents itself. I will put up a picture of my Ruger. Jim

          AAM: Weaver is the only maker of 1"See-Thru mounts,(No base required) Buehler & Kuharsky made them back in 1966...Lol

              I stand corrected. Leupold just left the category "makers of quality scope rings and mounts" with a $19.95 set of aluminum rings. Those type mounts are OK for a .22 or similar, but there are no aluminum rings I would use on my big game rifles. Hope they suit your purpose.

                Shoot-through's are a bad compromise at best, and just serve to make both situations difficult. Get the right scope and practice and you won't need the open sights except as a back up. You will want to remove the scope for that situation anyway.

                WAM, in general I agree with you, but Talley makes some aluminum rings that work pretty well. They cost enough, too.

                  Tally makes fine rings and I'm sure their aluminum ones work well, too. Aluminum is tricky. Is it 4045, 6061, or 7075 Al, etc. and which temper? A huge range of mechanical properties i.e tensile strength and ultimate yield. There are many grades and I'm sure the boys in China use nothing but the best. I just won't put aluminum rings on any of my rifles except a .22 rimfire. Drop one or bump it real hard and see what happens. I bet Talley's are more than $19.95...just sayin'

                    I have aluminum Tally one piece rings/bases on my Savage in 22-250. I have not had a problem with them and yes they were not cheap. I don't believe in see through scope mounts. If I want to use the iron sights I would use Quick Detach (QD)mounts on the scope.

                      Not that I would call a 22-250 a big game rifle either.

                        To be perfectly fair, the Talleys are ring/ base combos, all one piece.

                          Flyer,
                          Those are trouble also if your receiver is not perfectly drilled and tapped. Torques the crap out of your aluminum tubed scope or uses all your internal adjustment getting zeroed, inducing excessive parallax.

                            So do we all agree that there is no such thing as a good see through scope mount?????
