I have inherited a Swarovski Habicht (from memory its 6x40), I do know for sure its a 1" (25 mm Tube), recently we had it revamped and its got new glass as it was suspected as dropped. I am looking to put this ontop of a Winchester 30.06 carbine.
The question that debates is over the mounts, should these be steel or aluminium my local community are quite divided but no reasons why.
For reference, I have been looking at the Warne Steel rings and the Sports Match Aluminium ones (I don't believe either of these came from China - bad experience some time ago with Nikkon Sterling, using a popular bidding site for reference.
The intention will be occasional range use (practise) and highseat shooting - Personally I don't mind which ones I go for, but understandably I only want to make a single investment, which won't cost the earth?
Any assistance/guidance please.
