This is my rifle, there are many like her, but this one is mine. Springfield Armory Socom 16 with a white feather adjustable trigger group, nightforce NSX 2.5-10X24 scope in Badger 30mm low rings on a smithenterprise 2006 mount ,with a Harris HBRM-S and swivel lock/ quick release. She is also getting a ASLI with the scope ring mount (wont be delivered untill tomorrow), also the top forward plate or rifle cover is getting replaced with a solid one instead of the one with the hole for the forward scope mount (it's being removed). I'm going to paint her in a solid dark earth camo or a digital desert camo You guy's decide what color.http://i306.photobucket.com/albums/nn241/bellyscraper/rifleandnewscope007.jpg

Again, the snakeskin suggestion isn't a joke. Not only would your rifle be one of a kind and look awesome if done correctly, but snakes have evolved their patterns over millions of years for a reason; it's called camoflage. Nobody does it better than Mother Nature.

TPS rings when installed according to the manufacturer's specifications should not have a gap between the rings on one side.

Read the installation instructions. The design of the rings will result in one side of the rings to be touching while the other side will have a gap.

From the first pictures posted, I see a gap on both sides of each ring.

duenor
04-27-2008, 12:16 PM
Wow. I wonder what their profit margin on those are? And if they really are that hard to make? Most likely, I think (IMHO), they are easy to make - but during QC they throw out a whole bunch of them so the price has to go way up.

maxicon
04-27-2008, 12:30 PM
The unique characteristic I'd look for is the square cross-slot screw head that's pressed into the side. That's an unusual feature in most rings, so if you can find pictures of rings with that feature, it'll narrow it down quite a bit.

TPS rings have a removable cross-slot screw that has a round head protruding slightly above the ring body - the ones in the M1A pic look more like that.

Unfortunately, most manufacturers don't really show much detail for their rings, so you might have to find pics of mounted rings, or ask people to check what they've got.

If you melt them down, re-cast them, re-machine them and re-finish them you still won't be close. Or, do you happen to work at Badger and get some kind of great discount?

Seriously, your $20 rings are fine for mounting your $20 scope on your airsoft gun but that's about it.

Excellent rings! Anyone who says that $20 dollar rings are just as good does not own a precision rifle. I learned it the hard way. You dont however have to pay a ton of money for rings. I have some made my TPS on my precision bolt rifle and they are great. Personally I wouldnt spend that kind of money on rings to use them on anything but a precision bolt rifle or a precision/large caliber semi auto. Sweet looking rifle though!

I wish it were as simple as your naive explanation...but its not. But hey, maybe for your purposes, they are just rings. If its for holding a 20 dollar scope on a casual range trip, they're fine. I have some cheap rings too and they work for that. When you actually use your rifle in all conditions, bump it, drag it, and expect it to keep zero, within .25 MOA, you'll find your 20 dollar rings lacking.

Sorry but I can't agree there. The rings are the lug nuts on those two cars. The cheap (ok maybe $30-40) rings on the Yugo do their job just as well as the lug nuts on the Lexus that cost 5x the price at the dealership.

^I think if you actually were to hold a set of Badger or other high end rings in your hands and compare them with *any* $20 set of no name off brand rings you be able to see and feel
the difference.
They really are worth the extra money IF you need rings that tough and reliable. Maybe you just don't, but some people do and some rifles require it.

No they are not....I am one for saving money, but I can tell you. On rings (especially on higher powered rifles) are not something you want to skimp too much on. Although I think the Badger rings and NF is a little overkill on the Socom but nice neverless.

Talking from experience (and I have the scar to prove it). I once mounted a "cheapie" Bushnell $100 scope with $40 rings on a uncomped lightweight 50bmg. Fired one round, and the rings along with the mount and scope flew off the rifle and left a nice mark on the middle of my forehead. As blood was trickling down into my face, I realized that you get with you pay for. And to go cheap will cost you you more in the long run.

A nice alternative to the Badger rings are the IOR Valdada rings, built like a tank and bulletproof. And they only run about $75-$100.

ricknadine1111
04-28-2008, 12:23 PM
You know the front mount on the socom 16, well say you have it set up like my rifle and you don't need to use it, so what do you do? probley like I am doing, you remove it and replace the top cover (hand guard) with a complete cover not one with the hole in it. Now what if someone made a mount that screwed into the same holes that are there now but the mount was angled off to the side so a flashlight or secondary red dot could be installed that wouldn't be in the way of the primary scope and it cleared the original top cover (hand guard) just food for thought. You can send me the brain money say 10 percent of all the total funds you recieve for the product when you start selling it.:sailor:http://i306.photobucket.com/albums/nn241/bellyscraper/rifleupdate005.jpg

You got that so wrong. A yugo may top out at 60 mph and won't be able to pull a 1g turn like say an IS will. The lug nut will be a lot cheaper because they are not designed to take up the forces of the lug nuts and stems on a lexus.

The same can be said with Badger Rings. Badger rings are designed to be beaten to high hell and back and hold zero. The worst thing that could happen in the middle of a match is for your scope rings to fail and you loose zero or get a "walking" zero. Cheapy rings will not be able to stand the recoil of a heavy recoiling rifle or the abuse a tactical type shooter will put on a rifle.

Then there is the M14/M1A. The forces the bolt will put on the rest of the action that the scope mount is connected to would possibly kill a set of cheap rings.

Has anyone here have experience w/ any of these?
Just wondering how it's working out...2 optics? (close & longe range) or does it just make the gun too busy and ugly?

FWIW, IOR rings are made by TPS. Its a love/hate relationship to some. I think they're pretty good.

A good alternative to badger with the same quality is Seekins Precision. He does 34mm stuff:

I have a set of IOR rings but I am planning on switching to Seekins Rings and bases soon. The IOR rings are made of a soft metal and I have took a chunk out of the side of one. It did stay put though so they are built pretty well. I think the Seekins rings are the best bang for the buck.

I have a set of IOR QR rings, and while they're very sturdy and solid (and heavy, too), the finish on them is pretty mediocre. Lots of machining marks all over the place. The clamp springs are pretty fine wire, too, and worry me a bit, but they're captive and well shielded, so should be pretty well protected.

I haven't mounted anything in them yet, but I have no doubt they'll hold up fine. They weren't super expensive, compared to other high end rings.

When you come up with another good idea let me know, I'm a fairly decent iron worker and live pretty close to you.

I have been attending the welding classes at the College of the Canyons and this last semester I tested and passed my L.A. certs and my got my certs in structures. Kind of cool perhaps I should go get a job but I want my pipe certs first.:D

Can't you just add to an existing thread?

You have started five threads in the last three days using the same photo's or about the same rifle. At least two of the threads are redundant, if not four of them.

The 1'oclock mount I have not used, but I've used both of the others. LaRue>DD, but both work well. I think the Larue would be more effective mounted from a top rail (less height).

Obviously NEW to the calguns and California rifle market...I mean really NEW.

Why?

Because in late 2004 to mid 2005 the SOCOM and the SOCOM II were the must have rifle and EVERYONE and their brother's sister's uncle's grandfather's sister-in-law was acquiring and posting about their cool NEW Springfield Armory, Inc SOCOM or SOCOM II as THE definitive tactical rifle for California gun owners.

I mean, these things were flying off the shelves as fast as they came into inventory.

Then late 2005 rolled in and Artherd made the post that changed history.

If Oaklander thinks the AR15 OLL is "sooo 2005", then the SAI M1A SOCOM and SOCOM II are very 2004.

Next thing you know ricknadine will be posting about his uber tacticool Keltek SUx-16caca.

A nice alternative to the Badger rings are the IOR Valdada rings, built like a tank and bulletproof. And they only run about $75-$100.

IOR supplies TPS rings with their scopes.

yep, badger is good stuff. those rings are built like a tank. never had them slip. by the way, i would take the greesy gunk off before you mount them.


Excellent tip. And, for those doubters, shoot a Rem 700 LTR all day (308) and watch the difference in ring quality come through. Badgers will nto let go, if torqued to the proper spec (on the side of each box).

The SOCOM 16 might be the close quarters designed M1A, but it's still a DMR at heart.
