Default Help with scope ring and mount

I am planning on mounting a SWFS SS 10x scope on my standard M1A. It has a 30mm tube, any suggestions for rings and mount. I was planning on getting a CASM mount and would like it to be as low as possible.

I use a Basset low mount with Vortex Pro Series 30mm rings on one of my M1A's and Basset low mount with UTG Pro 30mm rings on the other one. Both setups are rock solid.

Like the Basset too and would go that route. Might want to check the objective bell diameter to determine ring height for clearance with the hand guard....if needed.

basset or sadlak mount will both serve your purpose w/low or medium rings.

I have a SWFA SS 10X 30mm scope mounted on my M1A using a Basset low picatinny mount, and the SWFA SS - TAC low (.8") rings.

Just a side note on SWFA SS scopes. I have a 16x mounted on my M1A, it has tons of elevation and I shoot it at 1000 yds. Glass is clear and while there are better optics out there, this scope has served me well the past 7 years on this rifle. THey are a great scope at a sane price. THey are fixed power and totally trustworthy.
