What Are The Best 30mm Scope Rings You Can Find? 

best 30mm scope rings

Scopes enhance your aim, but few firearms come with built-in sights.  So you’ll either have to mount one yourself or find somebody else to do it for you.  However you choose to do it, it’s important to make sure it’s done right. 

You need the right size ring to stabilise your scope and keep it solidly attached to your mount.  Scope size dictates the height of your ring.  I recommend that you stick to steel or aluminium rings because they are sturdier.  Since 30 mm is a popular size, I present to you a list of the best 30 mm scope rings. 

Yep. You’re welcome.

Vortex products are known for its' durability and this six-screw ring lives up to its hype 

It will solidly mount your scope to the weapon of your choice.  You can choose a height of Low Trl, Medium Profile TRM, or High. 

All heights are popular with users and you get a product that is compatible with both Picatinny and Weaver mounting systems.  Plus, the ring is backed by Vortex’s unconditional lifetime warranty.  If you want to treat yourself (because you’re worth it), you could splurge on Vortex’s Precision Matched rings, which are sold in pairs. 

However, this style only works with Picatinny spec mounts.  It will not fit a Weaver.  So for the cheaper option, you get more versatility. So it tops the list of the best 30 mm scope rings.

UTG gets high marks across the board and its 30mm High Profile Picatinny/Weaver rings are no exception. 

Made of aircraft-grade Aluminum alloy with hex screws, they feature a full-length locking plate. 

With a dead-on alignment usually found only on higher-end (and higher-priced) models, these black, matte rings are built to impress.  You will appreciate how easy these are to install.  They also maintain a secure fit, snugly hugging the rail.  These are value for money.

I love that you can get these great quality rings at such an affordable price.  They even throw in a wrench so you don’t have to rummage around to install these.  It’s like Christmas! Just stick this list of the best 30mm scope rings on your fridge as a hint.

For rings as tough as you are (okay, almost as tough), you can’t go wrong with Weaver’s 30 mm Six Hole Tactical Rings. 

Made of aircraft-grade aluminum, these matte black rings are built to handle the most punishing environments on earth. 

At low, medium, high, and x-high heights, these rings have six points of contact that will keep a vise grip on your scope.  No matter what your firearm goes through, you zero will stay true.

Being precision-machined, these bad boys have a great finish and will fit Weaver cross slot and Mil-Spec Picatinny rails. 

They are made of stainless steel so you will wear out before they ever do!  I became interested in these rings when my friend told me about their ability to handle recoil. 

The best thing about them is the control keys that provide the “no slip” positive recoil surface.  No matter how heavy the recoil, your scope will still hold its zero and will not shift from the top of your rifle.  They are a little on the pricier side, but well worth it.

These tough rings will hug your Picatinny and Weaver rails and never let them go! 

They come with inserts that correct for windage or elevation and make centering your scope a piece of cake. 

You would also love that they do not damage the finish of my rifles when you remove them.  Keeping my pieces in pristine condition makes them more valuable when you try to resell them. Agree?

You get get them for a good price and Burris backs them with a lifetime warranty.  My favourite feature of these rings is all of the extra cant they add to my system. 


To make things short, Vortex is what I think the best ring to get. But, look at your needs and get what you lack. Though, there is a good chance that you will find them in this list.  Why? Because every one of them is a winner by itself.

I certainly hope this list will help you save a lot of hassle!
